Re: Entropy

There is indeed a rubber gasket coupling the upper tank and the bowl.
I've had to have one replaced by someone else for the same reasons I had someone else break down my bicycle crank.

You remind me that I have a toilet fill valve that needs replacement...

Re: Entropy

I've always had my crank torn down by a shop with the tool.
I watched them do it once and it was seized pretty tightly.
Even if I had the tool I didn't want to be the guy stripping it out.

Not familiar with the term toilet cistern.
Is that the top tank or the septic tank?

Re: Entropy

JR - Congrats on your cleaned MAF sensor. Hold on to your old car - new ones from the last couple of years are like nanny's. Had to defrost the drain line on the self-defrosting freezer day-before-yesterday. Every time the freezer went to self-defrost the refrigerator below attempted to flood. Earli...

Re: MM flat preamp … i need a set of fresh ears

Objectively I would want the click to be reproduced with the fastest transient response, the better to let it come and go, and de-click it. Program material wants objectively flat frequency response and low distortion. But I don't try to play my old records these days so disregard my opinions. JR I...

Re: Miking the Royal Albert hall

The 4.0 "radio" feed was streamed so I think all you'd need are Front and Rear outputs from your soundcard.
They didn't give a web address though.

Re: Miking the Royal Albert hall

Great article. I noticed that the radio and TV trucks also use different mic arrays. Radio provides a true 4.0 surround mix + stereo fold down and TV provides 5.1 + stereo fold down. They give a lot of technical reasons for two trucks which make great sense but the one they didn't mention and just j...

Re: Audio RMS versus Peak

I never get timeouts.
How does that happen?

Re: MM flat preamp … i need a set of fresh ears

If the setup is for listening enjoyment then anything goes. Whatever you like best is best. If you are going for accuracy then without access to the source file or tape there is no objective way to judge anything. +1 on that. I guess what made me chose the lighter-loaded transformers was it's "clic...

Re: Audio RMS versus Peak

I am not sure what exactly a balanced VCA configuration is. Using two (one for positive zig, and another for negative zag) will sum to +6dB more signal, while noise should combine incoherently to raise noise floor +3dB. So net 3dB S/N improvement for 2x cost. People don't seem to care about mass-pr...

Re: Audio RMS versus Peak

Have you considered using the VCAs in a balanced configuration to double the headroom?

What are the available supply voltages?

Are HV op amps an option?
