Re: Super Low Distortion Ultra Pure Audio Oscillators Revisited

I don't get it. I think, what is conditioning the value of the trim is mostly the caps tolerance. 15T trims and higher is no good answer, I think. Firstly, what's needed is as low a resistor value, that has a range good enough with reasonable margins. This is not easy, it requires good knowledge of ...

Re: Super Low Distortion Ultra Pure Audio Oscillators Revisited

Thanks for all these informations. I re read the Jansek's paper. Great work indeed. 10nF 1%. Excellent, the accuracy of the caps is an important point. 1% resistors is good, but no need for better, since there are trimmers. However, they better have a good TempCo ( The caps, too. ). Switching: Janse...

Re: Super Low Distortion Ultra Pure Audio Oscillators Revisited

Twin T calculator: http://sim.okawa-denshi.jp/en/TwinTCRkeisan.htm It gives the equation of the transfert function. It calculates everything, one wants to know about filters, when you plug in the C and R values. A point I do not understand. It gives two equations for f0, the "Center rejection freque...

Re: Super Low Distortion Ultra Pure Audio Oscillators Revisited

Gain without A/D overload from the 1 kHz fundamental. Thanks, this is the key point, I was missing. I had overlooked the importance of the x100 gain at the output of the double T filter. The notch filter removes the 1 kHz fundamental and then adds 40 dB of gain to expand the analyzer A/D range abou...

Re: Super Low Distortion Ultra Pure Audio Oscillators Revisited

I am puzzled about a notch filter you plan to add on the oscillator board. How will these be used ? With the ULDO I understand you can go at measuring the THD of some audio device. With the ULDO at the input of the DUT, the Focusrite at the output, you get the FFT then calculate the THD+N. This shou...

Re: Entropy

With these cheap valves I often I see leaking from around valve handle/stem, my suspicion is that these valves are not engineered for many lifetime operations. Sometimes the leaking stops when turned hard open or hard closed, so I stopped trying after neither position stopped the drip. Some designs...

Re: Entropy

I really hate it when physical things do not behave as expected (its the laws of physics). I previously mentioned it was an odd "coincidence" that the sink cut off valve started dripping after I shut off the hot water heater... Now after repairing the heater and bringing it back online, the drip ha...

Re: Entropy

Replacing faucets and stop valves is not rocket science. I do it myself, I cannot afford a plumber for this 😱. That is just a matter of using the right gasket and perfectly clean mating surfaces. Gentle torque is all that is needed when things are done right. Cleaning and letting soak in vinaiger wo...

Re: Entropy

Isn't it simply operating the valve ( open then close ) without removal. I don't feel lucky... what if I test it and it doesn't stop leaking? So do I. Despite of service manuals and internet advices, I rather not touch it, in case it is so badly stuck from scale, it won't go back closed. At my plac...

Re: Entropy

The hang tag on the relief valve says to check them every two to four years. It sounds like they expect you to remove it to inspect for evidence of overheating. Isn't it simply operating the valve ( open then close ) without removal. This to make sure it is not stuck. Acid waters make corrosion. Al...
