  1. Block 327 top tier in line with stage. Possibly a reflection off the ceiling.
  2. Re Mark Knopfler at Leeds Shame sound engineer wasn't good enough. Terrible bass peak that muddied the sounds. At time the peak was so loud it caused a sort of bass phase inversion.
  3. Off to see Mark Knopfler in Leeds next saturday. My Christmas present from my lovely wife.

    Subwoofer music integration

    I recently built a sub and wanted to try it with speakers. I found an easy way to do this was supply it with muisc from a PC so getting a sepearate sub channel to drive out to an amp solely for the sub. it enabled me to pick crossover frequency in the PC audio settings.

    Next time your wife says.......

    My now wife, then girlfriend, bought me an SME 3009 Series II improved for my 21st birthday present. I'm not using it currently but I would never consider getting rid of it. Incidentally this week is our 40th wedding anniversary.

    Valve replacement

    I applied a mod to my Fisher 500C of installing small low power 10 ohm resistors in the cathode circuit.of the output stage. If a valve fails and tries to pass a large current these will blow and protect the irreplaceable Output transformers. I would recommend this to anybody with a vintage valve unit. I have also found that Valves vary by manufacturer. After one set of failures I will never buy a particular make again.

    Listening to music with hearing aids

    Audio loop is the answer. You will have seen the sign in public buildings. I installed one in the lounge of a friend's mother. Just a ring of wire under the carpet. Audio loop amp connected to headphone out of the hifi. Switch hearing aid to loop setting and quality sound is generated in the aid. https://www.deafequipment.co.uk/catalogue/225/Domestic-room-loop-amplifiers
