Jokes aside, relays tend to draw lots of power making them impractical for portable amps.
Just did some tests on my new volume control method, not looking good.
I might just call off this project since both of my ideas were not as successful as I'd hoped.
Well the original Alan Wake is the only one you really need. American Nightmare you don't really have to worry about. But plot is kinda similar to the movie Secret Window, where main character is a writer and things begin happening making him question if his book is somehow coming to life or if he's going crazy. But gameplay is fun, not too cluttered but looks great on a good pc.
Found the xplay review to be closest to how i feel:
I've just decided to call this off because with my current R&D budget, a O2 with output muting is about as good as it gets.
Sure, the O2 has DC offset is a few mV which is audible and the volume control is crap at low levels.... but solutions to those problems will cost more than I'm willing to pay.
In fact, it would be ridiculous if a student like myself was able to cook up something that out performs what the big guys out there made with their extensive R&D and expertise.
It was fun exploring some of these less conventional designs but I think I'm done here.
One of the volume control methods made its way into the beta22 I'm building since inaudible distortion doesn't seem to be a problem there.
I'm tempted to make myself a nixie tube wrist watch.......
I can use those cheap $3 tubes and I only need 2 of them
Maybe it's just me loving vintage stuff.
I like vinyl records too btw. (even though I can't afford them....)
I used to like thermionic valves too..... until I designed a few valve amps....
