I used a 32 mm hole-saw HSS on my drilling machine and drilled through a beam of ebony... then it took loads of hours to get it perfectly round by mounting it with a headphone jack in my drill...:...after two rejects I finally got the hang of it....

I can understand you did it for the Philips-Job...but howcome you preferred the soft suspension in combination with the Sanyo/JVC....did your listening to both suspensions decide that.....
or was it sheer the Mark Levinson approach...

I would appreciate if you shared your experience on that matter....
Well, Flatfish is not completely hard suspension either: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...71#post1469171

The effect of suspension will depend on frame weight, material, supporting platform and the exact type of springs being used. Only in such context one can compare one type of suspention to the other.

I spent great lenghts of time experimenting with various types of transport mounting and the end result is still compromized, taking into account practicality and visual appearance.

The choice of spring suspension was solely based on my subjective listening tests and not design decisions of Madrigal or 47Labs

Peter did you experiment with it on your Shiga project....I know you were satisfied with the use of it on your Philips Pro project....
You mean the controversial Y B Blue thread?

Y B Blue - how blue LED improves the CD playback

Well, this transport sounded so good right from the beginning that I was not really motivated enough to check the effect of additional laser light.

Excuse me...couple of practical questions...

1.....how can I edit...I made typos a mail ago..and reads difficult with them..

While I am at it...

2. what means IIRC

3. and PRaT...

Thanks in advance

PS

The Blue Led Thread is too sad to read...hobby-guys trying to kill each other.

I guess buying a blue led and 2 AAs answers it all for each individual.....

The effect was rather subtle and most appealing initially, after a while I didn't really care much. Modyfing CD-Pro would certainly bring higher gains, but somehow I never got into that.

As to your other questions, you will find answers here:

http://www.acronymfinder.com/IIRC.html
http://www.acronymfinder.com/PRAT.html

Do you mean editing posts? You got 30 min after posting to do any changes by pressing 'edit' button under your post.

BTW, I just checked you website and IIRC, your speaker project created quite a buzz on some forums

Anyone interested in this tube pre amp (took me 1 year with the help of an audiofriend)

All in dutch but maybe the million fotos make up for it.
