Re: home improvement turns into science fair projects?

My wildest "on the curb" story...... Several years ago, it was the entire frame and internal wiring harness of an Ampex MM-1100. It had been a parts donor for another machine, so lots had been stripped off. Head block, motors, VU meters, PSU and audio cards and the card cages. It lasted maybe two ho...

Re: Entropy

I've used a product called Shoe Goo for those repairs (from Walmart, Target, etc....usually in the shoe department). It smells like silicone type adhesive.

Re: Audio Test and Measurement Software

There is a looong thread at GDIY about Room EQ Wizard (referred to as "REW"). It seems to have matured into a full-blown testing suite for a lot more than checking speaker response.

Re: MCI console automation retrofit

Re: Something to ponder about IoT

From that article:

The new Bluetooth-enabled Hue bulbs will cost the same as those without Bluetooth: $15 for plain white; $25 adjustable white bulbs; and $50 for full color-change bulbs.

And to think that several years ago I would buy a 4-pack of 60W incandescent bulbs for $1.00!

Loss of small market radio
