Hello from Michigan! And a Question... With Picture!

Post by brianjcollins » Sat Jan 02, 2010 8:17 pm

Hello All,

I have an M1.5t and a C-1 hooked up to some Bose 901's Series V, and also have a question...

With my amp sitting close by a mac mini and ps3 could I damage the hard drive? There is only about 1/2" of oak between the amp and mac. Someone had said it could damage discs and what not, im sure how that is technically possible with cd's as they are 'burned' bumps. I don't see it erasing physical markings, but for other types of media that are magnentic...

Thanks!

Well you could get magnetic radiation from the transformer. Remember, your hard disks are magnetic. That said, your computer has a power supply in it that doesn't erase your hard disks, which are normally positioned right below it. If you cases are metal, I think you'll be fine.
It should sound like it isn't there!

Ah, very valid point. I'm sure the hard drive itself has enough shielding, as they make 1200watt PSU's..

Thanks for your response.

Where in Michigan are you? We are in Kzo where it never stops snowing!
As mentioned I would think the metal from your component chassis should be sufficient, but if it's not and the flux capacitor fails you will be the first to notice :D I would be more worried about the Bose speakers doing damage to your music than the other issue :lol: :lol:

The power supply in the computer may be shielded with mu metal to ensure the hard drive isn't affected...

Well, I've taken apart a fair share of PC power supplies, and they're boxed in either aluminum or zinc alloy.

Welcome to the forum. How do the 901’s sound set up like that?

Well, they sound pretty good. Honestly my sources arn't optimal with the mini-mac audio and hardly any of my music is lossless. I don't complain though, seem clear but they should be out from the wall a bit further.

I've played around with the position a bit, but I still have to make the wife happy with it's appereance. It's a balance.

Weren't we all. I was born in Detroit at Henry Ford Hospital in 1948. How do you say Baby Boomer.
