Re: it's Friday Americans!

You may have to hollar a little louder to wake up us old folks. Getting kind of hard to hear anymore at my advanced age. :-({|=

Just so you know, that link is worthless. It goes to locked down content. So you get no explanation of what's going on.

Birdwire,

Where did you go? Post more about what you're up to, Start you're own system thread. It's always fun to hear about what folks are up to.

Re: current system 2019

Hi Birdwire, Welcome! TFM-55, you a talking about serious power. The CV's can usually handle a lot of power but are pretty effecient and don't have to have it. But I'm not familiar with the model you mention, I take it a most recent edition? I'm not a real electronics guru or anything, but I've been...

Re: Can't Sleep

My trick is music. I use headphones and find just the right music.

It's one time I am more selective and will stop and change if I need to. When I get the right kind of music on it really helps me not let too many other things crowd into my thinking.

I am looking forward to a nice listening session myself. It's been too long and I have several things to listen to.

Re: it's Friday Americans!

It is often said the room is the most important component.

Audio extreme people almost always have some room feature they bemoan but have to make due with. It seems no one ever is getting to set up their system in an exactly perfect space.

Re: it's Friday Americans!

Looks very nice. No doubt, a lot of planning and anticipation.

You mention video. So you have elsewhere set up for two channel? Please say yes, so having to walk the plank won't be necessary on such a nice weekend. =; :-"

Re: Voicing the PT-2400

It really won't matter which leg it goes into. It's a loop from positive to negative, normally with just the speaker in it. In this case, you're adding resistance. Tube output stages have a higher output impedance due to that output transformer. A solid state lacks that, plus normally wraps feedback...

Re: Any mention of projects for Carverfest 2019?

Something seems to be going on here. Should an adult be needed to keep things in line?

Re: New Here

I just didn't know how much Foo there was to be flung. It's past old at this point. I'd like to just enjoy audio. Maybe put on some to bring a good end to this day.

Re: Memorial Day Weekend Twenty Nineteen

So two working all weekends, no BBQ'ing, no swimming parties. No ice tea recipes. No fun plans pulled off? I entered this weekend tired but with a bit of enthusiasm for the coming months. The 3 day weekends at the beginning and end of the summer are just kind of break points in my mind. My dear old ...
