I can't say whether they belong there (knobs, controls), but it's were we find them on the overwhelming majority of audio devices.

So it seems that even conventional audio thinking is already "outside the box".

Minus the 20ft of flat cable between inputs and controls.
A somewhat rare find.. - Page 7 - AudioKarma.org Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums

For $7.5K retail in 1979, at the current exchange rate, somewhat more posh than a BT. Then again, Mr Setton beat Mr Bybee by 20 Ferraris minus 1 Bentley. http://referentiel.nouvelobs.com/arc...861031_062.pdf
(in the boating biz, Mr Setton is quite a character)

That's pricey. About $22000 today. You could buy a Ford Mustang or a Mini Cooper for that.

The work of some of your friends, not so much.

Everyone of us may be missing something, depending on his knowledge and experience level, isn't it? Not necessarily equals scientific information shared in public.

For an interested fellow – I'm looking for a recommendation on a book for learning electronics.

But yes I would be very interested in seeing and playing with a demonstration where applying anything to the outside of a copper tube would change how the magnet inside would drop.
What does the local prof do exactly ?
And I would also be very interested in the things that affect the magnet inside the copper tube, so, anyone who knows of such experiments, please post information here.

Not sure this is the right place, but many EEs, including me, wish they had written this book, The Art of Electronics, by H & H

The art of electronics [Book]

At the end of the inputs of mine that Dimitri put together a few years ago, my recommendation is also: 'The Art of Electronics" as a first choice.
