  1. I could probably build you one...
  2. Just a quick update; I'm working on the problem at the moment. I've been having an unrelated, but critical broadband outage over the last few days which has hampered my attempts to get into the site to fix it. by hampered I mean I've spent the last three days looking at a flashing amber light on my router, willing it to turn green. am online again so hope to get it sorted soon.
  3. I got hackintosh running on an old Medion OEM board with Athlon processor. it was relatively straightforward once I got past a few minor problems. haven't used it for about a year now
  4. Serge, you're nothing but a rude, arrogant pompous old sod. you're telling me that 16 bits isn't 65536? I suggest you do some basic arithmetic. Further, a filter cannot faithfully reconstruct anything. It's pure guesswork. I suggest you're the one spouting drivel.
  5. For a broadcast engineer to proclaim that CD is better than vinyl is perplexing in the extreme. The quantization errors inherent in a low-resolution digital format (16bit/44.1Khz) such as CD are not present in an analogue medium. In laymans terms it's like comparing a ramp with a staircase. a staircase with 2^16 or 65536 levels. This is basic stuff. and it can be measured. 10 pages and nobody spotted the elephant in the room.

    Art Deco 15

    The only way to describe my experience of the Decos (20s in this case) is to relate my tale of listening to Fill the Hat from Atmos' Headcleaner album at silly loud volumes. it's like being sucker-punched, and hypnotised at the same time. it left me breathless, and grinning like a loon for ages. if it's a small room, then 10s or 15s would probably achieve the same result.
  7. James, I'm bitterly disappointed to read this. why the sudden attack on my forum, crossovernetwork? FWIW, I'm happy with my Art Emotion loudspeakers. I have been for nearly 5 years. without changing them, nor wanting to change them.
  8. that doesn't make it any less hypocritical.
  9. Are dealers at trade shows not people too? {re-lurk}

    Bhb cables.

    thanks for the unexpected coffee/monitor interfacing scenario.
  11. I've used 301s for years. first at home and later in my shop. they're ideal for non-critical applications, such as kitchen, study or diningroom where you might want some ambience. Cheap as chips on ebay. I've got series IIs, which have the big 'bose' badge on the woofer grilles. later ones have small 'lapel' badges which feature earring-stud type clasps for easy removal. they're front ported- out of the angled section where the direct and reflecting tweeters are. I recently used a pair, along with a Quad 306 amp and my old MF Pre at my daughter's birthday party in a local community hall. somebody else provided an iPod... worked really well.
  12. I like to eat bananas. because they've got no bones...
  13. Yeah, I'd go for those or similar. I've found in the past, certainly with the Technics ST8080 tuner, that the supply for the backlight is AC. saves them having to bugger around with rectification and smoothing (saves on cost). with LEDs instead of filament bulbs you get a very noticable flicker. also you need very bright LEDs that can be suitably diffused otherwise you'll just get spots of light instead of a wash.
  14. clearly, by clamping electrodes to their tits and cranking up the juice.
