Then a Mk3 Escort Van with Gong's Flying Teapot imagery painted on the sides. That didn't die. I sold that before it died. Maybe its still around.
That just shows you how good Gong were .

Re: Speaker design/test software

Thanks Chris - looks like I have everything I need there. Will order the jack/phono cable as soon as I get back from hols. I already have a microphone cable of a good length. I'll see if I can pull it all together in about 2 weeks.

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

The Panegyric Records pressings are very good. The download might still be valid too - an MP3 transcription of Robert Fripp's personal copy of the album. Oh I'm fine for playing copies Chris - I have two early-70's pink-rim copies , just sold a third (later) one to a guy at work. It's just that the...

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Yes indeed ! - thanks for the anniversary info.
Still kicking myself for not buying a Pink-label copy when they were £40 !

Re: Speaker design/test software

Well I got the Behringer UMC202HD today. Seems like a rather clever box of tricks and quite nicely made for the money. Sorry Ed - looks like this is going to be a bit easier to use and less stuff to store. If, however, you wanted to sell your microphone separately, I would give you some decent cash ...

Re: Decoupling...

Foot in mouth time. I think I see what is being said. Say using my amp as an example, at idle the HT is 1000V @ 180mA = 180W. At say a power out of 30W the HT delivers the 180W plus 30W so the HT bounces around to the dynamics of the music not so much to the frequency changes but a little as the lo...

Re: Decoupling...

Indeed, but not a necessary part of an argument about how the power gets into a loudspeaker - because a class A PP amp is quite capable of driving audio power into an 8 ohm resistor !

Re: Decoupling...

But if the total current was constant, why would a current be induced into the secondary? Well, if the valves were perfectly linear then yes, but they are not, some more so than others, You can see the effect of the lack of linearity in the various tricks WE found to try and cancel the differences ...

Re: Decoupling...

BTW, I am not trying to be clever here, I am asking the questions from the perspective of realizing how little I understand about whats actually happening. Absolutely. So one thing we do know is that the only way power gets into the speaker is through magnetic potential energy in the core being con...
