Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

What a beautiful crisp, clear and bright early autumn morning today. A bit on the chilly side though when I headed out at 7:00 this morning for a 25mile loop up onto the Blackown Hills; leggings, base layer and proper gloves were the order of the day. Another good week all in, 118miles total and 6,5...

Re: Digital.

Just out of interest Ray, is there a valve DAC without any DAC chips ? Being a pedant, of course, if it has DAC chips it wouldn't be a valve DAC would it. I know of one valve DAC but there may be others. There are also decoders that use silicon but not in the shape of an integrated DAC chip, for ex...

It is based on the TDA 1541,
So not a valve DAC then...
Picking nits ? :lol:

...played through a Valve DAC.
A valve DAC or a conventional DAC with a valve output stage - they're not the same thing.

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Got the Tour of Britain on record this afternoon. It's going right through my old stamping grounds from teenage and early-20's years, near Bolton. Edgeworth, Belmont, Winter Hill, Horwich, Blackrod, Haigh, Aspull... I've been catching the ToB highlights most evenings, It's on straight after the Vue...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

The remedial piece of pine I put in has now been sanded down ready for a final router cut when assembled - but will need something like wood filler or bleach to hide the rather obvious coarse grain which is at an angle to the edge. You could patch in a small piece of the ply - done carefully and wi...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

...9...10 A piece of half-round beading glued to that gouge, now. Thanks Ray. I'm glad it sounds as though the recovery as relatively simple - I thought it had started to go wrong with the edge nearest the router base as it doesn't look smooth? Good stuff though an at least your problem was a beari...
