Speakers / Re: Follow up to "Cheap Desktop Setup"

Andrew Jones really does some amazing work, but you will not get to know how amazing for quite a while as I think it will take at least 300 hours of play time to properly break that cardboard in.  :lol:

BTW, the pile of 50 cent CDs are the perfect music to play on the "Cheap Desktop System."  :thumb:

Agreed!  :rofl:

Actually, as I remember some of the CDs were 25c each! The Metheny one was actually $2.00.

Experts Corner < ..... Think Tank / Re: Demagnetizing
« Last post by P.I. on August 14, 2018, 04:32:15 PM »
+ 1 on being very careful.  Remember that these demagnetizers were made to bulk erase a pound of material or so at a time.  The field is strong.  Anyone that used one knows how they can shake while demagging a roll of 2" tape.

I would recommend getting no closer to the tube than 6" and then pull the tube away from there.  You have to "pull away" to not leave a residual magnetic field on the tube.

I believe tubes will create their own magnetic orientation during operation, but think it would be a very good thing to begin from zero base as far as magnetization is concerned.

I'll try it.

I know that cryo is a good thing for tubes and think it would be a very good thing to demagnetize tubes before cryo treatment.

I love this place.  It makes me think  :thumb:

Sorcerer - Miles Davis Quintet

Still sitting in service area, this is going to cost me. But car just clicked 100k miles, so things need to get addressed.
