    Head groove-o-mania

    meaning that it's normal sand paper there and not lapping film? a difference between sandpaper and that kind of lapping film is also the abrasive material of choice. and, if the groove isn't much deep, you might also start from the 9um (with some more work than on the 13um) and then going down...

    How a stereo cartridge works

    LOL! during my teen years back in the 80s, I used to backwards play Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven" in search of the devil messages that they told they were into that song... the only one I've found was by playing around the line "there's a feeling I get..." backwards and, with some...

    you mean also two needles and two grooves cut on the record?

    How a stereo cartridge works

    want to just say that, being stereo vinyl groove system quite particular, it's not possible to keep the two channels totally indipendent... then, for example, bass frequencies on stereo vinyl must be mono otherwise the needle will jump out of the groove. the "non in phase" (=stereo) signals...

    Carbonara day .

    have a look at that recipe... more than bucatini, I would go with (not too thin) spaghetti or even vermicelli. moreover the look of that carbonara on that recipe's picture isn't exactly the best.

    Carbonara day .

    The day before the carbonara day, here at home, they had asked me: "do you prefer pasta al tonno or pasta alla carbonara?" But what a pointless question... if they wanted that I had pasta al tonno they should have made it without even asking me! But if you ask me, my answer is just obvious! :p...

    HF loss - general

    these are the settings I use there in the Sweep dialog... I will use the numbers of the above pic from the manual to identify the various settings. 1) Step Count = 60 (you can use larger numbers with no problems, the software will check more frequency steps and will take more time... but for...

    HF loss - general

    interesting. i never touched those settings and mine are set as defaults. anyways, now roll-off on bass disappeared and source and tape are substantially the same... just, i would expect the head bumps on bass in the tape curve. but, can you also do both channels with these settings? must...

    Head groove-o-mania

    no worries... he got a really great life, full of satisfactions and was in really great shape until age 90 (he looked and acted like if he was like 20 years younger)... but then he improvisely got a cancer and that's it... but he got a nice life and he was/is a great example for us all.... if he...

    Head groove-o-mania

    OMG! Those 4 of 5 times in total that I was hit by 220V AC was more than enough for me and it wasn't funny. :eek: First couple times when I was a child and the plugs here in Italy had the pins fully made of metal, now they are half plastic half metal then you cannot risk to get hit by current...

    Head groove-o-mania

    and, to be fully sincere, years ago when I was working on my own decks for the first times, I risked a couple times getting electrocuted myself... then I became sensitive about this matter. o_O i.e., some AIWA decks have the small PCB with 220V AC just dangerously close to the deck's mechanism...

    Head groove-o-mania

    Sure... but I was both worried of the moron getting electrocuted because he was just clueless about everything and, nevertheless, he was working on the device open and connected to AC plug... also, it was a so rare model (also very heavily built for a mono shoebox recorder!) that I felt sorry...

    Head groove-o-mania

    how can I know what that lapping film really is? anyways, if those numbers mentioned on the page are microns (i.e. the 1500 = 30 means 30 microns)... then the coarser one at 30 microns is too coarse... the coarser one to use should be the 15 micron one and I am seeing they go down to the 0.3...

    Head groove-o-mania

    a funny anectode about a TOTALLY clueless guy I've recently met on an italian facebook group about cassettes... The guy had a very old mono shoebox recorder, a very rare early 70's model from the japanese brand Silvano, so rare that there isn't even a picture of it on the whole internet. The...
