Re: Phono Transfer System Construction Information

No I consider Doug as someone who is impossible to debate with once he has made up his mind. There is of course a way to get a noise reduction with balanced if you go to a current rather than voltage design, but driving a virtual gound with MM brings a whole new set of interesting problems. And yes ...

I've been quiet as been a mad few months with work (hammering square pegs into round holes in software) and home schooling has left me little time for anything else. But the square pegs are now hammered firmly in and he goes back to school in a week. What I have managed to do is get one MM board and...

Re: I love modern technology

[. My suspicion is that it may work better too since I tweaked my receiver/monitor setting. My optical feed is now coming from the new TV monitor, not the old sat receiver. That's how I currently run the feed into miniDSP so works for me. We can figure out some kind of a trade later... I wasted yea...
