Just curious, any chance that Erno Borbely or John Curl write articles for Linear Audio ?

Yep. I'd hate to count the millions of junked foam surround speakers with no surround!

OK - my sub. went in the inbox yesterday, Jan... I want to hear about some of these topics too!
Now, how about a poll for topics to distribute to authors - perhaps linked to a thread like this running between issues to discuss the merits?

I asked Erno but it seems he's really retired now. Not that he hasn't earned it; he gave more to the diy (and pro) audio community than all of us combined probably.
JC doesn't strike me as an author, don't think he was ever in writing articles (although he did write AES papers at one time).
What I am looking for is articles with a high standard of technical competence and consistency, and having some element of novelty, like new ways of looking at things or new circuit concepts.

In Sunspicious mole state there's 2 choices
As you aluded to, there is a third choice, dying from skin cancer. One of my former bosses died of melanoma at age 54, Sherri's mother has been battling it for 4 years, but will likely lose her battle this year. All of us spent too much time in the Florida sun. Forum member Allen Wright recently succumbed to the same evil cancer.

I have had numerous small cancers removed over the past 10 years, including one stubborn tumor that took 6 surgeries to get rid of. I used to have a small sailboat and worked the evening shift. I was at the beach almost every weekday morning. I think I'm permanently toasted.

We sold those Jensen car speakers with the bright blue foam surround when I worked in a stereo store. When mounted on the rear deck of a car, they lasted 6 months to a year in the Florida sun. This pair lasted for 30+ years inside the house in a wood box. They finally suffered an overdose of Metallica. Note the 70's disco era Naugahyde and crushed velvet. The van that I drove back then had a similar interior design (Black Naugahyde and Blue velvet).

How about "Lets act like kids and blow stuff up" or "How to get 20 watts from a 5 watt amp". Told you I refuse to grow up.

OMG! 'nearly as bad as a van I used to moonlight doing lawns in back in the 70s. - Black Naugahyde with strawberry pink sateen lining - stone age Pioneer audio - fluffy pink carpet exterior - big cursive writing on the front:"The Pink Mouse" (apologies to our moderator) Sure, it had to be real cheap but you get the picture about not growin' up either, I guess.

Jan,

I think you need to change your business model. Looking around these threads I think you should charge the authors to publish their work. It is called a vanity press for good reason.

Me want!
