Budapest 1969 we're in mono and collecting red Soviet metal film resistors, they were amazingly small. I was just replacing my 8W 2xEL84 circlotron amp with a newly built 2x20W solid state one with 2N3055's. I was very proud of it, until one of my friends told me it didn't sounded to hot.

My Grandparents (with attendant Great Uncle
(and me when I could arrange it)) lived near
Applegate. ~ June each year my Grandpa and me
would drive Uncle Charlie up (and then down
(into the canyon)) near Forest Hill. He would
spend the summer with a pan, and at times a
sluice box.
@ $35 / ounce (the standard for years)
He did OK .........

Both places are near by... just up the hill. In Auburn there is still a store that will sell you gold panning supplies. many people supplimented their income by gold panning.... now its growing pot. Where are you now?

Speaking of gold, my friend Jack Bybee is now putting several hundred dollars of gold into each set of a new product he is making. Gold is still useful for something! '-)

On another subject, today is the big day! When my colleague gives his summary of the 30 page paper he wrote on FM distortion etc. called: 'Further Testing and Newer Method of Evaluating Amplifiers for Induced Phase and Frequency Modulation vas Tones, Amplitude Modulated Signals and Pulsed Waveforms' at the AES Convention today. We should have something up for discussion, soon.

Hi John,

I'll look forward to Ron Quan's paper, even though I will not be at AES. He's a smart guy and a nice guy.

Let's all just remember that no-one is saying that PIM does not exist. Its more a matter of how it must be measured (including what stimulous is used) and to what extent, and in what way the amount of negative feedback and open-loop bandwidth affect it. It is also important to bear in mind that PIM can be created in the complete absence of negative feedback. Finally, its nothing more than a new name for differential gain and phase that the color TV guys worried about 60 years ago.

Cheers,
Bob

Hi John,

Just went to see this, had a great chat with Ron.
He does a LOT of interesting things, and it will take some time for someone with a feeble brain like me to digest it all.
What did surprise me from a quick read was that the usual opamp suspects did quite well in his test, basically showing his test residual at medium gains, while some well regarded (for sound quality) power amps, even class A, did not do so well.
His measurements are pretty sensitive judging from the waveform curves he has in his paper.
If you are interested his paper is # 8722, available from the AES.

Edit: You probably have this paper already...

jan
