Default A lurker no more

Hello All

I'm a DIY freak .
I can't stand not knowing how something works .
I don't see the sport in just buying something ,
( that means I'm cheap ) , that I can build , usually better .
My hobby of the moment is Audio speakers/amps .

I've worked in R+D electronics for 10+ years as a tech .
These days , I'm Software ( CAD) in a ChipFab , that makes
among other things , nifty classD audio chips .
I can have a tube of em , but too teenie to solder...sniff .
I'd rather build Rod's p3a , I miss the smell of burning boards.

See ya in the posts .

Hi Wayne,

I love the smell of burnt diodes in the morning! I put them on my Granola!

Welcome aboard!

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME ****, why didn't he just buy dinner?

Default burnt diode smell

actually burning power resistors (wirewounds) smell the best.
Just like fresh ground coffee!
