What if you had a speaker cabinet that was a vacuum, so no backwave at all? Problem is the vacuum working against outward cone movement Oct 26, 2020 at 3:10 PM

        I was looking, it looks like Apple has a patent from a bit ago for a hydrogen or helium filled speaker. The patent goes on to cover a speaker that has a peice of uranium in it that releases hydrogen as it decays. Interesting idea to have some uranium in your phone...

        LMAO, with all the cobalt, lithium, etc. in phones nowadays sure what's a little bit of uranium?

        More seriously, I've no meaningful experience with speakers but based solely on headphone stuff it seems we're still a long ways away from being able to overcome the basic quandries of sealed enclosures just having a specific sound to them.

        I'll have to look more into this, it seems very interesting. Maybe I'll see if I could do it for a research project for class...

        I bought a 10 pack of the 2x spicy hot in the past. Honestly I am used to it now. When I first had it, pain, hard to finish eating it. Now, its just good pain when eating it. Just thinking about it now makes me want some, best instant ramen i have had. The noodles themselves are just so much higher quality than anything else.

        Samyang are good. If you want some more suggestions for a bit more obscure and not as common ones let me know

        Yeah sure, that would be good. As a college student with 1 pot and 1 pan who spends all their money on audio stuff, any good ramen suggestions are good.

      Listening purposefully to hear flaws is stupid, unless writing a review or something. Listen to listen, and if you hear flaws, then upgrade

        Isn't that what they call listening to the music rather than the equipment? Wise indeed. But if the equipment intrudes anyway, then upgrade.

        @GoodEnoughGear, you saying I'm old?

        You're right! And I remember the name Roneo (not to be confused with Boneo!) And am not sure which machine it was. Was it the one that produced pink/purple type? Then there was the one with the drum full of ink and a typed stencil: they type cut through a wax layer.

        Ah, yes, I certainly do remember that; I remember the sweet-spirit smell. In fact I don't think it died out until photocopiers became widespread. Didn't Xerox's patent mean that they were all *their* huge, very expensive, per-copy-licenced boxes before then?
