  1. The thing that bothers me with this sort of crap is that, Simplicity is the burden of mankind. In future attempts to make such examples/statements, I would encourage the use of more sophisticated verbiage. Even though the path was clear, not once did the term 'flux capacitor' come into play. Mary Poppins had a better grasp of the english language.... supercadgelisticexpe'alodocious. hmm, spellcheck seems not to be working here.
  2. I just let Bruce have his way with the fine woodworking. Do you like the teak and mahogany combo? I do. You can see why. So far, Dennis has been the donor of the circuit board, parts (not cheap) and electronic work. Then it made its stop to Bruce's shop where you see the result here. The only input that I have had so far is having Bruce mount a silver dollar that I sent to him on the top (sorry, no not a real one, but still classy), and having Bruce make a cutout for the rear panel brass mounting plate for RCA & switch. It will probably come to my place by next week, where I will assemble the brass plate, and likely remake many of the connections with some fancy silver wire just to follow this high wire act. We all have had a great time making this a group effort. Perhaps something else will gel in the future.

  4. I was also hoping these would support at least 35 volts, just so that I could try them out in new projects. All I have seen are the ones for 1-3 volts. Couldn't get the site to come up so that I read it. Sure it isn't some weird porn site?
  5. Stop it guys, or I will add a SH circuit to this buffer project... I mean it.
  6. Good Lord, it's been too long since an update for the buffer amp project. No, I don't have photos, but Rockstar2U does! Folks, the lion's share is on his end and you will see why when he posts some love for it. At first, I didn't think that we were going to get ridiculous (compared to average folk), but oh my, lions tigers and bears, it's just too freaking late! Just today, I got the brass plate in to mount some of the hardware on. Ummm, it's heavy dude. Like I might have mentioned previously, I may have to put some upgraded parts in this unit just to justify the chassis. I don't want it to become one of the VW kit car, 'aha' fooled you things.
  7. I just threw out a donated, to me, shop system by Sound Design. Never plugged it in. Hope to never tell my friend the donor what happened. After all, it worked well in his shop. Yikes.... Dennis, my system won't look as good, but it will be a few notches above Sound Design. Did JCPenny make that? Dunno Your system would be overkill for my shop, but I am envious non the less.
  8. Well, maybe an update here. The Kharma expands. It was just too big for Dennis and I to handle alone. Bruce (Rockstar4U) may be joining the effort in the woodworking department. I won't give up any secrets just yet. We got some kool ides in the oven though.
  9. I remember voting for Perot knowing that there were no other options at the time.
  10. "Hello, Dave. I see that you own some of my home movies, Dave. Is there any way that we can talk this over? I still have control of the oxygen valve... Dave."
  11. Yah, and please don't forget those who use a line of old cars as a defense wall.
  12. It is a matter of perspective, mine/vs theirs. For the first 7 years in the telephone industry, I got to install telephone jacks in peoples homes. I got to see more than I ever wanted. Most people lived reasonably and to a beat of their own taste. Others could be identified just by pulling up in the yard full of various trash. All that they owned or abandoned was treated about the same way.
  13. Three different C-9 units stand out over the years. They all had something in common, abuse. I should open a shelter. One of them was actually used by a band. Uh yah, 'we will use this unit to widen our sound man.' It was thrown around with the rest of the gear. I rebuilt it, and it got the title 'Ugly Betty'. She is no fun to look at, but makes up for it with her performance. The next unit was a kind of bet to myself that I could take it on and remake a good appearance with it. It had been sawn, drilled, and bent to the liking of it's previous owner. Interestingly, it became one of the more glamorous units that I have rebuilt. Last was the unit where the customer asked if he could open it up and do some extra work IIRC to the unit. I never condone this unless I know the person doing it. I folded and he went to work on the unit. Left it not only in shambles, but it was by far the hardest to recover from physical damage. I use the term ham fisted to mean that this guys hands/understanding were anything but gracious. Wish that I had photos before and after for these wounded in audio service.
  14. FWIW, I have rack mountable C-9 ready for sale. If yours hasn't been rebuilt yet, it might work out for both of us to do a trade.
