Re: 801a amplifier

No problem not remembering Paul, it's been a long time since we spent a few days at VSAC, yes it was in 2003 - we went with Clive and Scott neither of whom I've heard of/from for years. I was telling you about my exploration of DSD (or more correctly SDM) playback, which is now my preferred way of l...

Fair enough.

Dave, have you looked at the sample rate matrix in the JLSounds documentation? If you incorporated some logic you could arrange for an LED specific to the incoming data rate to be lit.

Re: Poundland 45

Apart fro the lovely sounds the Poundland 45 made through Ant's speakers the other thing that struck me was how small it is 'in the flesh' - I'm even more impressed than before that you've build it (and reworked it) in such a small space Steve.

Re: Millett LR + TP Opus + AMB α24 reboot

Paging RayP, Dave, I think your data/clock lines look OK. though I'll have another look tomorrow as I've been a bit short of time this evening and feeling a bit tired so don't want to trust myself. One thing to check out is the mute signal and whether the Opus DAC expects a mute signal that is hi o...

Re: Millett LR + TP Opus + AMB α24 reboot

Can't see any 100n caps decoupling each chip's Vcc/Vdd - well, there are no chips as such, but decoupling pins 1 & 2 of J1 would be a good plan. Crowbar (diode) between pins 1 & 2 of J1 as well, plus possible tiny power LEDs for both usb & iso sides. No need for decoupling Nick, that'll...

Re: Owston meet 27+28 Nov 21-add your name here

Nick, a question about your Quasars - were the tweeters that were screwed to/dangling from the baffles in use? I didn't get close enough to check while they were playing and didn't look when they weren't! BTW, these are the drive units that I mentioned to you - I've got a pair of the 8inch ones that...

Re: 801a amplifier

It was good to catch up yesterday Paul, albeit briefly. Given your concerted efforts to get the amp ready for 'Oh! ston', I guess it was pretty much inevitable that some tweaking would be required - I'm sure you'll nail it down (there is a hammer on your work bench picture :D) and we can look forwar...

Re: Owston meet 27+28 Nov 21-add your name here

I managed to get home to Somerset in just a little over 3.5hrs - non-stop apart from a refuel on the M42 south of Birmingham - not bad compared with the marathon 5.5hrs coming up, though that was due to a big crash bringing me to a halt for nearly 1.5hrs rather than the weather. Although it was cold...

Re: Owston meet 27+28 Nov 21-add your name here

Not long now. I'm only coming for the Saturday and it's a long round trip from Somerset so I'm hoping for clear roads. I would normally plan to set off before 6am but with Judy's poor health it'll be later as I'll need to make sure she's set up for the day on her own - if stuff happens on the way pl...

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Thing is, what Ray and Andrew are saying is a stereotype of what they consider motorcyclists (in particular) and young car drivers (to a lesser degree) are like. No I'm not Phil so please don't try to speak for me! I specifically referenced a sub-group; ...the people who remove the baffles from the...
