Re: Technics Sp10 Woes

Check the voltages. If it was 50v, it would still work solenoid.

Check you still have 32v on C1 and C2 point to make sure that PCB track not damaged. After then measure all voltages on connectors to that board. That will be place to start.

Re: Technics Sp10 Woes

So, is that C1 on the drive board that is connected to the 32v supply? So I would think the effect of shorting the 32v supply would either kill the regulator or take some of the tracks out feeding that voltage.For the future only connect the scope ground to the 0v line. Have you checked the power ra...

Yep, that has extra lighting over mine, but silly for what they cost.

Re: Technics Sp10 Woes

Not sure what to suggest. May be measure all the voltages on the driver transistors write them on the schematic and we will see what looks wrong.

Re: Welcome to Audio Talk

CFdZWgiAj8I BTW, before you start looking for solutions to problems that don't exist, the site runs on a IONOS server and thats doing fine thanks. Exactly how does that work then? That was sarcasm based on your apparent suggestion that there was no physical hardware. I am fully aware of docker and ...

Re: Maglev

Ahh ok, it is doing what I hoped supporting the platter on a magnet like clearaudio and a few others do. Hard to see from the pictures.

Re: Maglev

I got excited then as I thought they may be about maglev on the platter, which is something I have been thinking about with the turntable I have been working on for ever.

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

Output impedance is a misleading thing. It means nothing unless its considered in conjunction with available current. You can make a white cathode follower using a ecc83 that has a low output impedance, but can't deliver more than a few tenths of a milliamp of current. Also in the real world output ...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

"current reserve". Low Zout, and a power supply you can weld with
Are they basically not the same thing, the ability to deliver current into the load?

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Hardcore ! Course now what's happened is, I had to buy a near-mint copy of 'Sweetnighter' from EBay. Luckily only £9.99 including postage. Its not just you, I found myself on Discogs getting a copy of Jean-Luc Ponty - Enigmatic Ocean (the one I bought in 82 was worn out due to overplaying) and Terr...

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Would I be going out on a limb to suggest that maybe the band were more cohesive when Jaco wasn't with them ? :shock: Well, it seems from reading and watching documentaries that Jaco and Joe tried to pull in different directions, and Wayne was trying to keep out of the way of it all and play the mu...

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

IMHO Mr Gone suffered from the fallout of following Heavy Weather, I can't help thinking ego's were even more to the front than before.

Sweetnighter is great as long as you are happy with the early less percussive more left field stuff. I like it anyway :-)

Re: Speaker Motors

It might be interesting to try the primary of a 115-115 torroid as a autoformer to connect the speaker to the amp.
