Any thoughts on where to buy caps/resistors/transformers to make a crossover?
Need to remake 2 of these crossovers for hopefully not too much money https://manuals.harman.com/JBL/HOM/Technical%20Sheet/S105%20Aquarius%20I%20ts.pdf
Hoarding or saving for a rainy day?
And it's not even all of them...alright I might have a problem
A bigger problem would exist if you actually have gear in which to use them all.
Selling stuff on the FS board. Time to consolidate things.
I know I sold mine, but those Elex look awful tempting. I’m sure they’ll go quick
Was wondering why I was hearing about Area 51 again. The internet is stupid. https://time.com/5627283/area-51-invasion-military-free-aliens/
Text substitution shorthand from Unix, s(ubstitute)/text/with/ and the g at the end means do all of them, not just the first found.
Glad to know that ed/ex/vi syntax is alive and well in the forge :)
And... This makes me miss Rex Aeterna.
Working on writing a comp curve for my EARS. Can't seem to find sanctioned HD650 / 6XX EARS measurements to mimic. SBAF stock curve is off.
HD600/HD650 tend to be bad to use for calibration because of variables: seal, pad, positioning, etc.
I have a stock HD800 on hand as well, I'll try with that.
My speakers measure at 0 ohms. Pretty sure all drivers are ok, and I don't see any immediate shorts on xover. Where should I look?
I'm hopefully getting Altec a7s on Craiglist this Sunday
why do people on r/audiophile suck so bad at speaker placement?
Not having good speakers and/or not affording large (volume-wise) rooms typically make people hysteric about placements.. from my experience lol.
"Why do people on r/audiophile suck?"
There, edited your question for clarity and brevity.
It's the constant dribble of B&W floorstanders at unequal listening distances and unequal toe-in... "BEST SOUND I'VE EVUR HERD."
Sure thing, Bro!
New movie trailers out? Must be Comic Con time.
After a week and pad swapping, Auteur is ahead of Aeolus. Aeolus more lush and exciting, but can be fatiguing. Auteur with velour easier.
In complete agreement :-D
Meh, Sendy Avia not doing for me either. I blame HD 600 honestly, it's too good.
Isn't that the new-ish FotM can? Would be curious to hear your thoughts v other, more known headphones.
Under 3s and starting under $60k: https://jalopnik.com/2020-chevrolet-c8-mid-engine-corvette-everything-we-kn-1836485708
Gonna get it?
@SoupRKnowva Miata is always the answer for that. These are exciting times for car fans. chebby just blew up the $60k market with a $100k car. Audi R8 bois like, wtf. Anyone considering a P-Car gonna have second thoughts about getting shown up by a stock base model C8 everywhere all the time. C6 owner boomers in jorts are gonna be pissed cause C8 is too wacky.
The Fiero lives again.
Its nice you are happy - this makes me happy!
Also, your avatar is wonderful.
Welcome back, SBAF.
What happened? Elnrik took the muthaship down? (joking)
I think someone used the server as a coaster, been there broke that.
Did someone strap the server to a seat-less chair and do some Dutch scratching - Casino Royale style?
Daaaayum, Audiogon discussion forum is full of cries for help https://pmc-dropshare.s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/Photo-2019-07-18-20-52.JPG
Those crazy mothafockars!!
@spwath @Lyer25 that is horrible. What a POS.
ZDT Jr, It may be the new shiny, but I find myself listening to it way later into the evening than I should...
Now the real question of how does other EC gear sound starts bugging you.
If I wasn't converting the dining room (used twice a year.. waste of space) into a two channel room, I'd be seriously looking at EC and DNA amps!!
Gungnir MB A1 + LP + Clears = happiness. First time hearing a Cavalli amp. Hype train seat reserved. That is all... enjoy your evenings!
Going to my friends lake house in a few weeks. Should be fun,4 guys, 4-6 girls, IDK where we will all fit in this 3 bedroom lakehouse...
Let’s be honest. Do any of us really know why are wives married US?
@Hands I have a different perspective. I was thinking the furry pimp coat is a good prop that can be combined with the OMG I can't believe you said that kinda humor, to boost spwaths overall cred.
Although maybe more appropriate if not worn during a heat wave.
My fur coat did attract some men, but that's about it. First time I was hit on by a gay guy.
Does any know of a great sounding tablet out of the headphone out?
Surface Pro? A mark 1 or 2 Pro is cheap.
The first iPad Pro 9,7. Better than chord mojo imho
Can't keep these Andromedas out of my ears no matter how hard I try.
Glad you enjoy them; personally I hate the feeling of objects in my ear but I did like the Solaris. Never tried Andromeda.
Both are SO good.
Focal Elex sounds nothing like I imagined it would from all the reviews and impressions.
How so? Please elaborate if you will. Cheers.
And...did you like/hate it? Moar plz
Agreed, post in the thread. Have you heard other Focal headphones?
