  1. Great read, I see you have a headphone amp of sorts mentioned on your post in FB, what are the specs of that? Your website redirects to your Facebook page but am struggling to work out which is which as none seem to have headphone jacks that I can see.
  2. One for the Mac fans... https://thevinylfactory.com/features/despacio-james-murphy-2manydjs-soundsystem-interview/ " Eight speaker stacks each standing at 11 feet, 48 McIntosh amplifiers at £22,000 a piece, close to 50,000 watts averaging 100db on the dancefloor, and three nights to road test one of the most impressive and ambitious soundsystems in the world. The best thing about day one? “Nobody died”. "
  3. I downloaded the Seismograph App used in the video and it was very interesting and gives me a good baseline. I put the iPad on the TT Platter and tapped the cabinet/floor etc.
  4. I don't get this. My understanding of it... is you fill a bucket (buffer) with water the chip feeds off the bucket, providing the bucket never runs dry what does it matter if the data has been resent, it says resend last packet (I'll wait). Jitter is not a physical thing, it is the external timing of the bits, you can't save it/represent it, once the water is in the bucket it is not there anymore from upstream.
  5. Photo is not time based, it can just take it's time. Audio is very timing important. That's why we talk of time errors in jitter. And that is why we have caches/buffers.
  6. Yep, it is this one, no idea if it is a legit Viborg. Not too heavy, as I think the belt is at it's limit without slipping happening. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Viborg-LP-Turntable-Stabilizer-Vibration-Balance-Clamp-Weight-280g-50Hz-60Hz-1PC/222763092558
  7. A good demonstration, albeit about speakers.
  8. If you want wade through this thread there are some good points. https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/has-anyone-had-experiences-good-or-bad-with-speaker-isolation-or-isolat
  9. I went the Ebay and Off-cut route. 8 Aluminium 'Isolation Feet' from Ebay for about $50. Two kitchen stone benchtop offcuts cut to size for $50. About 30Kg of weight in them.
  10. I've got some early 60's records that are in similar condition. So for me it seems about on par for a well kept sleeve.
  11. My HK Play Bluetooth speaker always surprises me how it can fill a large room with music. So my point being don't discount some of the larger BT speakers. 9YO kids won't be too fussed with sound quality. "Sound quality If you’re going to buy the Harman Kardon Go + Play for anything, however, buy it for its sound quality and sheer musicality, because it really is exceptional. Beneath its cloth-covered curved grilles reside four drivers: two 90mm woofers and two 20mm tweeters delivering a frequency response of 50Hz to 20kHz. Each driver is powered by a 25W amp for a total power output of 100W, and the sheer drive this setup provides is simply stunning. This is a speaker that will have no trouble at all rocking out at a small garden party, and its smooth, powerful bass, rich mids and crisp treble ensure it’s as at home with the driving pacy bass of Trentemoller’s "Moan" as it is with the atmospheric crescendos of Mozart’s "Requiem" and Pat Metheny’s soft jazz pluckings on "Map of the World"."
  12. Nooooo, I would have got this next week...eye operation took all my play money for the month 😞
  13. Not sure if anyone has seen these. HORL ones from Germany. https://www.horl-1993.com/ I like the concept, can't quite get my head around the cost of it (about $300aud) when I pay my Japanese Knife guy $15-20 a blade every 6-12 months.
  14. I always thought Kosher salt is just normal Maldon-like salt. (sea salt flakes etc). To me the name is incorrect, they call it Koshering Salt as it is supposed to remove the blood from the meat - but that is incorrect for the most part as there is no blood in fillet steaks and the like (aka muscle) only myoglobin, yes it is red and looks like blood but it isn't.
