Project Repair: Project "Mistral MM-1 Hybrid Tube Amplifier Modification"

Fri, 11/13/2015 - 10:36 -- rprice

This man purchased a cheap Tube Amp, and rather than simply accept the poor quality, he upgraded the crap out of it with some better components. If you can't open it, you don't own it.

Mossberg: It's time for Google to make its own hardware | The Verge

Wed, 11/04/2015 - 23:23 -- rprice

it's perfectly possible for a company with Google's clout and resources to hire more hardware engineers and designers, create unique devices, and outsource its manufacturing. Here are five reasons why it should do just that.

Your PC Needs a Control Panel Like This One | Make:

Tue, 08/25/2015 - 17:24 -- rprice

Reddit user smashcuts decided to liven up his interactions with his hardware by building a fully functional overhead control panel for his computer. The 100 programmable buttons range from practical to ridiculous, but smashcuts puts the “fun” in even the most useful functions. His “Main Systems” panel triggers his most used programs, while peripheral panels house switches that function for OS shortcuts or for program-specific commands. All of these he has cleverly codified with nerdy pseudonyms.

Free Music Archive: Build A Mixing Bowl Reverb

Mon, 02/09/2015 - 17:32 -- rprice

The concept of a plate reverb is quite simple. An electromagnet, like the one found on a audio speaker, is directly or indirectly coupled to the center of a piece of sheet of metal. Audio from a sound source is fed into this electromagnet (voice coil) which will physically vibrate the piece of sheet metal (plate). These audio vibrations are echoed many times, echos which are in fact persistence of audio. The amount of persistence (reverberation) is determined by the physical characteristics of the plate.

ionosonde recordings: D.I.Y. plate reverb

Mon, 02/09/2015 - 17:32 -- rprice

Now that I had a working voice coil (driver) ready for mounting on the plate reverb unit, it is time to fabricate a coupling link that will directly connect the driver to the plate. But first, I need to do something with this mess I made while performing that gruesome surgery on our patient. A quick sweeping with my trusty broom and......wait a minute - broom - broom handle... Perfect! A broom handle is the right size for making a driver coupling link.
