Separate names with a comma.
Actually.. it's missus. I am single at the moment.
I only ask that, if you do use ignore, you always use Reply to respond to something.
I get so many responses to posts where I never see the original post because the original is ignored but the response does not "quote" it.
It's very confusing.
P.S. Actually, everyone should always use reply. This has nothing to do with ignores.
Funny, I was just downstairs in the lab, and Naomi mentioned "hey, this is the Freya from the guy on Head-fi who put the wrong tubes in it." No laughter, just thankful for your honesty. We'll get the Freya taken care of and back to you shortly.
Bottom line, we all screw up.
One of the biggest eye-openers for me was when I was writing white papers on low-rate codec audio performance (really low rate, think analog cellphone era). They didn't rely on measurements--they used subjective listening panels. Yes, I know, this is pretty far away from measuring -120dB linearity on a 24-bit audio source. This was more about intelligibility, but there were also points awarded for "pleasing" sound.
^^^ Now that's customer service and why I am a Schiit evangelist!!
So, @Jason Stoddard -- when will you reveal what the shielded transformers go into? Is it a new DAC, maybe??
Maybe a new reference phono preamp for Sol?
You should ALL laugh. I did. Eventually.
As the Dalek said, climbing off the dustbin.
Graham was certainly honest about the mistake and such information can make troubleshooting easier. At some point we will all have to change tubes in a device if we keep it long enough and his post may keep others from making the same mistake.
Then - at least where I growed up - missus is married. Miss is single.
To be honest, it never entered my head to do other than I did. I was more interested in learning why it happened and how to avoid the problem again! It was only after much detective work and hints from this forum that I realized that - in the initial search on eBay - I had transposed two digits and ordered something incompatible. [BTW, they are still avilable if anyone wants them. Aparently they won't work in a Freya though :-0]
Thanks for the thoughts - this has been a bad day, two of the upgraded Rpi enpoints are refusing to connect to wireless and I can't find the cause. Foortunately, the Berry/SPDIF and Modi3 to the Vaidar is still working. (Did he just tempt fate like that? Really?)
Would a cd spinner need a shielded trafo?
Ah, that's the only thing I always get confused in your language.
Pffffff... I've still a lot to learn.
Miss = Signorina
Mrs. = Signora
Edit: I should say grazie.
Graham, what are the tube numbers on those tubes you have available? (No I am not going to plug them into the Freya.) I have been experimenting with dual tube adapters and if the tubes are suitable for any of my needs I am glad to help out. It also helps that I have an RCA tube book from the late sixties so there is no doubt on proper substitutions. This morn I saw one published in the early seventies at a local electronics distributor but they were not about to turn loose of that, they are getting harder to find.
Measure twice, cut once.
