Re: Downsizing advice

I've got gear overload. Either need a larger space or a serious gear reduction. Right now I have a spare bedroom that is practically un-navigable due to, well, hoarding.
But I too hate the selling process.

Seems like everything was easier when I had the br8 and a 57.

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

1588c derives phantom internally (so way lower than 48v) and has a different transformer.

Re: Best Monitors for the Room

If I were you: I would focus on fixing what DOES NOT work currently with what you have. Spend time listening to your room with the monitors you own now. Measure and map out your nodes and peaks. Learn a bit of Acoustics. Measure all this at 82dB at your listening position. Pink and white noise. The...

When there's drums in the bass mic

I've been archiving old cassettes, and came across a tune from last century. It's just drums and bass, recorded live with two dynamics. Lofi crunchy. I've fleshed out an arrangement, but now the mix is killing me The main problem is the bass mic: it's sort of a cleanish grind pop punk sound, (that b...

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

it's kind of funny that everyone lists the compromises they are willing to tolerate. Every playback media seems to have them... :( True. I prefer the sound of live music but it's such a damned nuisance having to kick the band off the couch so I can drag it out of the way enough to unfold the bandst...

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

RE: the vinyl comeback What is the ratio of people that actually listen to their new vinyl on a regular basis vs just use the download code? I've never used a single download code from a vinyl purchase. Since losing my entire collection roughly a decade ago, I'm back up to 300ish titles. I typicall...

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

My guess is Jack White or Chris Mara will at least try to figure out how to start producing lacquers. Mara just expanded his electroplating operation, so I would imagine he has incentive. I do wonder about DMM facilities and the small lathe cutting operations. As I understand it, these are generall...

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

This is potentially very bad. As I understand it, their Japanese "competition" is a one man operation, so not much hope of picking up much slack there. But on the flip side, with the vinyl resurgence there's been a lot of investment in all the downstream aspects - there are more cutting, electroplat...

Re: 3 Pin Tuchel/Din Pin Numbers

I replaced a 3 pin DIN last year, unfortunately I tossed it. But I believe I used a meter to find ground and it was simple from there.
