Re: Residential Lighting with LEDs: Retrofitting the Pink Ranch

Well....now two brand new SYLVANIA "60 Watt" bulbs have failed within a few months. Flickering like a disco light.

Grrrrrrrrr BULLSHIT! I want the Olde GE incandescents back. They seemed to last for 1000 hours versus dozens of hours for these Mandated trash bulbs which cost much more.

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. It's totally free, with the option to make a $$ donation. https://groupdiy.com/index.php?topic=70372.0 I have a Dell W...

Re: MCI console automation retrofit

OK, I guess I'm still in the weeds! lol I still run across MCI JH-600 series desks "in the wild", and with the automated version, when the JH-50 system craps out, important features are kaput. Fader mute is the most important, but solo in place and fader grouping are quite useful. I have a client wh...

IIRC from the dusty corners of memory that you were involved with the design of an automation system retrofit for the MCI JH-50. Presuming my memory is correct, I'm curious about any details, availa...
