Re: Phono Transfer System Construction Information

I was going for the classic 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x binary progression so you could cover up to 15x with fair resolution by mixing and matching...perhaps a little wonky for hifi market. all switches open gives you the nominal load termination.

Re: Justice: Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College

For something else to chew on about the state of modern higher education, regulators are talking about mandating financial education in college in light of the student loan debt problems, etc. Since the government basically caused the problem, they need to fix themselves.. never gonna happen. :lol: ...

Re: Phono Transfer System Construction Information

I probably don't have any more left, but i used to sell a 4 station dip switch PCB (gold plated switch contacts) for switching in and out termination capacitors to better load MM carts (24,47,100,200pF). A similar approach might work with resistors for MC (10,20,39,82 ohm). Of course why not use 1% ...

Back in the day I think I terminated my MC input with 20 ohm...

Re: Justice: Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College

Finally got around to reading the articles linked and somewhat horrified. But glad the little guy fought and won! Many small businesses do not have the resources to fight in court, but if you get angry enough, and the offender shows zero remorse, you do what you must. Hopefully this will serve as a...

Re: Entropy

Back on the entropy train, I just replaced my side door doorbell button that has been broken for as long as I can remember. Oddly the cheapest button I found was branded heath/zenith and made in china, no surprise there. For around $5 I got a cheap plastic button with internal light (LED? but could ...

Re: too cheap to fix?

I like fishing line to fix that kind of stuff. A tight sewing machine stitch usually isn’t practical. Fishing line is very durable even with only a few stitches. The heavy thread seems adequate... probably as strong or stronger than the rest of the seams. It was nice to have two pair of gloves in r...

Are you in the E911 database? yes.. I think it was almost 20 years ago when they assigned a rational 4 digit house number to me... 7489 DSCF0170.JPG But... the Post office does not give a flip about E-911 database.... I have several neighbors with PO Boxes in the exact same address catch-22 situati...

Re: Justice: Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College

The political climate is caustic and not getting better... there are some courts that would have sided with the school, luckily they got a fair hearing. These college kids are tomorrows deranged adults. The wine shoplifters were typical petty crooks, but the school's response was way out of line and...
