Re: Phono Transfer System Construction Information

Phono 1 can feed either the Monitor or Record outputs flat or with EQ. IIRC Phono 2 can only feed the record output through the EQ though it can feed the Monitor output either Flat or with EQ. Depending on how you anticipate using it you might reverse the roles of the Record and Monitor outputs. I ...

Finally got around to reading the articles linked and somewhat horrified. But glad the little guy fought and won!

I am amazed only 9 people died. Of course records of people who succumbed do disease or worse afterwards are not recorded.

Re: too cheap to fix?

I've seen the Mississipi. Reminded me of kipling and the 'grey green greasy limpopo' :). It's somewhat wider than we have to deal with in UK other than estuaries, but all our rivers are fairly weedy compared to even Europe let alone the rest of the world. Hence why we are just not set up for it. Oh ...

Re: Phono Transfer System Construction Information

I do have a packet of reed relays I was given that would work for this. Worth a try using them. Not keen on normal relays for signals to low to guarantee conduction. Will mull on that.

Re: too cheap to fix?

It had been a dry few weeks and enough to cause this. I've seen worse. I worked in Newbury when we had some biblical rain and my client's HQ building was cut off. Then the water filled up the space between the platforms at the railway station. In UK we moan about the weather a lot mainly because we ...

Re: too cheap to fix?

I think the rain moved to England. I'm in Chianti this week, but apparantly some parts of uk had 100mm (4") in under 24 hours. Normal rainfall for whole month is under 80mm. Chaos has ensued. Here its high 80s and dry :)
