It may depend on player and the way the light is applied. My CD is on the outside and I didn't experiment much with LED placement. However, what I've heard so far makes me eager to investgate it even more. In my system, there is definitely an improvement.

Question Factual

"Add a 500-1k resistor in series and your batteries will last longer."

Is this true? Won't adding a resistor across a battery cause current to flow and discharge you batteries. Why would want to do this? Why would you post this statement which seems to be untrue by every bit of physics that I know? Can you explain the resoning behind this statement?

Then by all means, burn some batteries.

Virtually all of it within the context it was given. But if you want some specifics:

<i>Yes, it is quite interesting that in adding some noise to the signal, we can actually get more information back.

It permits the recovery of some information whose energy was not sufficient... To drive a zero to a one or the other way around? Exactly.

And at this time you don't see the noise, but you see the signal, which existed before.

Here are two levels: the noise of the LSB, which is dither, and the noise we add with the blue laser light in the analog domain.

We apply the light--the treatment--as the laser reads the data, while dither is added afterward, of course.

In the analog domain, you know, noise decreases slowly, continuously, so that even under the noise floor it is possible to retrieve some information. But with digital, under the LSB, there is no more information!</i>

Quote:
Is it non-factual that a blue laser or LED can cause optical noise or some other difference in how the laser reads the CD?
No, but that's not what's being claimed.

Why does a non tweak company like magnavox put a green LED in thier player?
I've no idea. It could be used for a biasing diode for all I know (LEDs are used by some for biasing diodes as they tend to be less noisy). What does Magnavox claim it's in there for?

Is dither non-factual?
Sure it's factual. What's not factual is that the blue LED is applying LSB dither.

I didn't say to add a resistor across anything, let alone across a battery. Please refrain from posting non-factual information.

I like those "odd" ideas which pops up every now and then. I wonder why they never reach Scandinavia?

This remark was really honest, it lightens up bored swedes like I but it takes a little bit more to be convinced.

Depends just what you're trying to be convinced of. What exactly are you wanting to be convinced of?

Default Non-factual?

I quoted you verbatim.

"Add a 500-1k resistor in series and your batteries will last longer."


I asked a perfectly legitimate question then and expected an answer. Or you were free to ignore it of course.

"Is this true? Won't adding a resistor across a battery cause current to flow and discharge you batteries."

Where is the non-factual information?




Here is some factual infomation about things that will get you put in the Sin Bin.

FORUM RULES

1) No personal attacks or bullying. If you disagree with what someone is saying, then present a mature and intelligent case to prove otherwise. Malicious intent will not be tolerated. What you do over private email is one thing, what you do on our forum is another.

2) No offensive language. Sure, most of us use four letter words in normal conversation without too much thinking, but this forum is about thinking. Words are the clothes in which thought is dressed. And luckily, these threads are cheap (pun intended) so please choose language that reflects the quality of your ideas.

3) No threadjacking. Threadjacking is the practise of stealing another's thread by posting off-topic replies such that the original topic becomes diluted or lost. Off-topic posts, and even more importantly replies to off-topic posts, are welcome, but should also address the original thread topic.

Some of the greatest discussions have come as a result of off-topic replies. If something interesting does arise that warrants further discussion then continue your discussion privately over email, or even better start a new thread and link to it. This rule will of course be used with discretion.

4) No posting of safety endangering information without an accompanying safety-warning message that adequately explains the risks

Violation of forum rules will result in users having their accounts suspended and/or terminated, at the discretion of the moderators.

These 4 rules will be enforced in good faith to keep the discussion quality level and the level of peer respect, high.

Just a friendly reminder. I am not looking for trouble and I think the moderators have a pretty short fuse about now from some of the post as of late.

H.H.

Default danger

if you are using blue leds, pls do not look directly
at it. Blue leds are known to be bad for your
eyes.
I don't know the exact mechanism or reason, but I do
know that in one manufacturer who makes leds,
all the people who handle blue ones have to wear
some filter spectacles to protect their eyes - no
kidding.
If anyone knows the full reason, perhaps they
might like to share?

I've read the rules, thanks.

And I'll gladly serve my time in the Sin Bin without so much as a whimper if you can point me to the rule which prohibits pointing out the posting of non-factual information.
