    Top Albums of 2009

    So looking over the various top lists of '09 (Spin, RS, Pitchfork, etc) I have to say I am dissapointed by all of them. Lots of albums that don't deserve the top 100 let alone top 10. RS making U2 #1 of 09? Give me a break. Thoughts?

    Starving Student Troubleshooting

    Edit: Fixed, working perfectly now. So the Beezar SSH kit is all together, but flipping the powerswitch does nada. Not quite sure where to go from here with troubleshooting since all of the connections seem good, and the solder joints all look good. The only thing I can think of is that the...

    Vintage Speakers

    (Not sure if this is the right forum, mods move it to where it is appr.) So I finally got around to peering at the speakers that are in my grandfathers basement. It is part of a set, because the turntable is the middle of a big chest, with vinyl storage the right side and the amp on the left...

    Bose quick listen

    So I was over a friends house and I got a chance to listen to two sets of Bose headphones that he has. They had the standard Bose over-ear headphones and a set of on-ear noise canceling cans. Before taking a listen I skeptical of all the Bose hate on head-fi, but I knew they were a bit...

    Protect Your Ears!

    This is little note that I thought sci/eng nerds/majors like me might be into. We were going over pressure measurements in my ME measurements class and the prof was defining dB's in terms of pressure. Calculating dB's follows this equation: dB = 20log(10)(Pressure/2e-5 Pa) Converting...

    Dead BUF634

    I finished my buffered Cmoy and it works great (other than the IC opamp adapter, which is an unstable pain in the ass), but to get it working I had to tear out the BUF634 I had in parallel with my TLE2426. The voltage was split across the TLE but the buffer was dumping it to one side. The only...

    Overheating op-amp

    So i just finished a kind of hybrid with the buffered powered section of the A47 and the amp section of the Cmoy.
