  1. At a late Summer evening parking lot car show, one of the cars was that yellow. Every bug in the parking lot was on that car.
  2. That all the insignias off the car and you would never guess that it's a Ford (from most views), let alone a Mustang.
  3. That's not real stereo. It's multi-miced pan-potted mono.
  4. A digital crossover is a much more powerful tool for a home audio loudspeaker designer. But it's not plug-n-play. It's far from a simple retrofit for an audiophile.
  5. You missed the point. The point is, those very high frequencies never get to the audience.
  6. I doubt that orchestral recording made with the microphones at typical audience positions, would have any meaningful very high frequency signals.
  7. If one hears differences in AC mains cables, one should investigate to find out what system problem causes these differences.
  8. There are countless good coax cables with heavy braided shields that will sound and measure the same. So it comes down to: which cables are easy to mount in Eichmann Bullet RCA plugs and are readily available at a reasonable total cost.
  9. They are the largest identifiable group, next comes young adults, the third group lacks easy access or just needs more encouragement. Encouragement may come in the form of a free beer or paid time off work.
  10. Meanwhile in the US, interest in getting vaccinated is diminishing. The age limit is now 16 and above (this may be lowered to 12 and above) but still daily jabs have dropped from almost 4 million to 1 million. There is now a stockpile of about 70 million doses.
  11. Roman Grosjean is competing in some of the US IndyCar races. IndyCar is a mix of oval and road races, so far he has only done the road races.
  12. I don't know how the sprint races will work with the current equipment rules. In the olden days, they had spare cars ready to race. All they had to do was add fuel and put on race tires.
  13. Actually, in theory they got it upside down. In AC mains wiring, in a circuit breaker box, the heaviest loads are connected closest to the input supply. But in real world loudspeakers there is zero difference!
  14. The first stage of Sail GP 2021 happened last weekend. They used the one design 50 foot catamarans. Much, much better racing than the A Cup.
  15. Surprisingly demand for jabs in the US is diminishing, even thou they just opened eligibility to everyone over age 16.
  16. It will only take one juror to make a political statement rather than looking at the evidence and they will have to do the trial all over again.
  17. Just noticed in an older post, that there is confusion between a balanced interconnect system and a component that has a balanced internal circuit.
  18. If instead of an image, there is along series of numbers, I have to Left click on view image.
  19. 3rd to 15th place qualifying results were not what I expected! Good to see them enforcing a few track limits. They should have limits on every corner during qualifying.
  20. Hearing differences in polarity can sometimes be traced to loudspeaker 2nd harmonic distortion problems.
  21. I doubt that the above list is the least bit accurate! Why? Many recording consoles have polarity switches on each channel. Some of the components in the recording chain may invert polarity from input to out put. These is seldom any effort by the recording engineer to track absolute polarity.
  22. I know of two great providers, but they are an ocean away. Stick with pro-audio, TV, industrial providers.
  23. From the US government: The Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday it is asking states to temporarily halt using Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine after six people in the U.S. developed a rare blood clotting disorder. The FDA said the recommendation is “out of an abundance of caution.”
  24. The Kentucky Derby is just two and a half weeks away and the qualifying races have been full of surprises.
  25. 75 Ohms is the nominal designed impedance. But for short cables, any coax with a RFCI of 50 to 125 Ohms will be fine. At 10 meters or longer, stick with a 75 Ohm cable. Digital transfer systems don't have sound quality differences in the analog sense. They have data errors and if the system is bad enough, the data error correction system gets overloaded.
