    Radio-Fi : The AM/FM tuner thread

    i recently sold my Onkyo T9090II, was a very nice tuner indeed, nicest i've heard/used and built very well.  use internet radio now.   that said I still have an old Ultra valve tuner i use when my PC/hifi is down for modification too :D  not worth much at all, but it's pristine and makes me...

    Western Digital Drive Sale

    i bought many 500gb 7200rpm single platter drives ran in raid1 to use in computers i built, seagate or samsung, forget which; they run very cool, are slimmer than normal and make almost no noise.  that they would be more reliable than 2+ platter 'makes sense', all else being equal.    ...

    Frequency Response Curves

    how is a FR test done, with what sound that is...white noise or a pure tone sweep from 1Hz-20KHz  am thinking that the later is almost worthless as music is lots of freqs all at once aye?  wouldn't really tell anything from a single freq with regards to how 'good' a driver is i guess.  ...

    How Do Drivers Break?

      Quote: naughty coil.     on a more serious note it's always worth checking your amp for dc offset :D mine had something like 50mv which isn't terrible but now it has about 0.5mv and brand new trimpots, all it took was my cheapo DMM and £5 for 8x bourns 12-turn trimpots from...

    WHAT IS THE BEST CHOICE? AUNE, AUDINST, ZERO, MAVERICK D1 OR SOMETHING ELSE?

    i have an Aune MKIIse, it's just fine and nicely built, likes 15v over 12v tbh, no change at all giving it 18v from what i can tell, no optical in though, annoyingly.  Headphone section, whilst very clear and able enough, can't beat all-round my cheap nad c300 integrated, but then i doubt any of...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    might be because it's a digital amp?  i think they explode or something if you try to attach headphones in a conventional manner 'cos of separate grounds :(  nice of them to provide the socket though rather than blather on about 'simplifying' their amp.   Quote:

    Quick question about the LM317! (and other such regulators)

      finally got round to getting it away from the PCB using teflon sheathed (very) solid copper wires, less than 6 inches including traces from the caps, and changed the trimpots for much better bourns 10k 12 turn ones, so... easy to adjust now! :)   interesting that the temp of the LM317t...
