Pedro,

Great! I am so short on time, was afraid already i would have to do it! - BTW, you could sent me DWGs and i could comment them, i too use AutoCAD 3D.

And if that helps, i send you my self-written LISP routines. Auxiliary geometry, DIN standard parts (2d) and a lot of other useful stuff. But please, plain AutoCAD,no mechanical desktop, cannot open/handle those DWGs w/o damaging them partially.

Wow, that's some kind of music!

1. When you listen to music, do you listen from the beginning of the song to the end or do you scan thru the CD and listen to bits and pieces?
2. Do you listen them loud or just as background music?
3. Do you listen (if loud) with the kids and wife at home? I assumed you've got wife and kids.
4. Which is most important to you? Low, mid or high?
5. Is achieving 16Hz bass important to you?
6. It feels loud just by reading it! How's your hearing?
As Mr. Pass mentioned somwhere, if you are not satisfied with your system you try to listen louder and louder and eventually you swtch it off. So I'm not listening really loud. The other reason for that is that I crossed my Raven ribbon tweeter at 7k with 3rd order slope and it still seems to be not enough: listening too loud would damage it. I usually listen through whole CD. I also like to do compilations of my favourite tracks. Kids and wife got used to my music and they don't mind even if it's loud. My 5 years old doughter recently started to turn it down because she can't hear TV. I don't care for 16Hz bass and having it down 25Hz is enough, but the quality of bass is really important and I think that open baffle makes it the best. Lows, mids and highs are equally important and when they properly matched everything just sounds better. When I evaluate new equipment I've built I have few favourite tracks that I've been using for years. Those are: track 6 from Dire Straits "On Every Street", track 3 from first CD "The Wall", track 2 from Lou Reed "New York".

Sorry, I wasn't very clear.

I don't actualy have my own TT project in autocad.

what I have are bit and pieces from the thing people put online of their own project, that usually are a mess in the drawing section.

I thought we could join forces to develop a nice TT, and I could help with the drawing part.

trumpet right up against the speaker, and vinyl just
gives me the sweetest sound

I always pictured Nelson looking something similar to that. But with a white lab coat.

Perhaps that's his Southern distributor?

Mr.Pass,

yes, i understood you that way. Good!

BTW, why don't have your own TT project in AutoCAD 3D? it's sooo helpful to see solutions! and you do not have to nudge 3 projections along and weed out nonsense regularly . I would not like to miss 3D CAD. My offer for the LISP utilities stays.

My friend, the future of Vinyl has never been in doubt in my mind. It is, ( except for surface noise ) far superior a medium for music reproduction than any other I have come across. Belive me. I own both CD and DVD. They just dont compare in the quality of sound.
Keep them Records Rollin,
