Re: Liquid Battery

yeah but no but yeah but...... even considering this is the beginning of a new technology a fuel tank of 500ltrs would not be outragious for something like a bus. By my calculations a 500ltr tank could be 6' x 3' x 10", give or take. Even with the immature technology it might be practical in some ci...

Re: ADAT

thanks for the input chaps.... however I haven't a clue what all these new acronyms mean and I'm sure it'll shed little light on the subject if I google them all. I'm not at all sure we're on the same page here..... I don't want the same output out of the digital outputs...the point of multiple outp...

Re: Nothing In Particular

+1 for powerline adapters.. I've used solwise adapters since the beginning of time and never had cause to complain(they are based about 3 miles down the road from me). The only down side is the speed issue. When I started they were 85mbps and I had 3 I think. Then I wanted to add a fourth but time h...

Re: ADAT

Out of curiosity why the interest Ed? because it's the best way of decoupling the DAW from the monitor amps. The inputs on my echo layla 3g are quiet enough but the analog outputs have always been touchy about the amps they are connected to. For the last 10 years I've used the spdif into one amp vi...

ADAT

does anybody know if any of the consumer DACs will accept ADAT input. Seems this detail is not on any product info, probably because they don't do it...but thought I'd ask, just in case.

Re: more lateral fets

minor update to the previous minor update.... further discovery has revealed that the sibilence and two dimensionality have now evaporated...it would seem that these exicon fets do change with the passage of time. I now have the amp in the main system, connected to the pair of vofos that weren't use...

Re: MoFo

ah ha....cunning plan bit trixy trying other pres though, no? what is the benefit of running the bias dc through the secondary of the pre amp? I am being a bit slow here, but wouldn't that close couple the output swing on the pre with the ps on the output stage? on reflection, no more than an ordina...

Re: more speaker porn

thanks for the input chaps for the moment the speakers are going in the studio set up with the monacors out of circuit. I like what the alpair does on its own and I certainly don't want to upset or change that presentation at all. The alpair will not have a low pass filter, that was not the original...

Re: more speaker porn

If I took it down around the 5k mark and let the monacor do its thing as in the first monacor only plot then the range above say 8k where the monacor was working alone would be at least 4-6db below the alpair..... and yes, I'm guessing/extrapolating from the plots I've got. I took a risk and ran the...

Re: more speaker porn

this is giving me ample opportunity to go insane.... I measured the monacor at 10k with no cap...hey presto: rbt95-spl-10k-nocap.jpg and then did a sweep with the monacor phase reversed: a10p-rbt95-phase-reverse.jpg I'm feeling queezy...I'm going to put the phase the right way round and have a liste...
