I agree, I like the idea of glue or resin to attach components to a chassis.  It adds a nice layer of damping material.  I used to to this with step-up trannys for mounting in a box.  Works great with the Cinemag or similar style cans.jh...

My first answer would be "3".  But then I think some more...Is "A" really a shunt?  Where is the power dissipated?  Certainly not in the capacitor.  The signal is burned off (converted to heat) in the series element!  In circ...

I'm not convinced a constant side load on bearing is good.  It causes assymetrical wear.  Just seems to me a center balanced bearing with no lateral loads would be better.  Merely an intuitive hunch.   As for the copper, yes, it...

I was not there!  But I like the idea of the halved horn.  Does that work?  Seems to me it creates a huge wavefront discontinuity.  Clever in terms of usability, anyway.  Also, the pillows.  They have to be messing with ...

Paul, I think that is a very good observation.  Seems to me that a really thick grease or oil in a large bearing would offer enough friction such that the motor was always biased into an active positive torque region.  Such would be the equ...

I believe a lot of the issues with earlier DD tables was that they were all servo controlled.  That is, a feedback loop kept the average velocity constant.  As a musical passage of complexity would slow the platter, the loop would respond w...

So why wouldn't you just copy what was done with most cutting lathes?  Seems to me that stylus drag would be roughly the same (geometrically) for both cutting  and playback.  Thus, the cutting lathe slows down in response to large orch...

I run the driver tube at 170V @20mA.  I don't think you need to run this tube at high current.  It is very linear with wide signal swings at this bias.  I can get roughly 70Vrms out of it.  Output stage clips first, driver continu...

The answer will be a complicated one, as the preamp is driving an active crossover.  The many storage elements means the impedance is a function of frequency.  There is no "10k ohms" answer.  I hope you are driving these network with s...
