Default Cyril Bateman's site

From a major contributor of defunct british magazine Electronics World, unsuspected facts about capacitors, cables and other components :

http://uk.geocities.com/cyrilb2@btinternet.com/

It shows that harmonic distorsion analysis remains a very powerful tool to investigate their behaviour.
Many thanks to Cyril to have let his works available to the audio community.

Hi Forr,

why do you say 'defunct' in the above? Is EW gone?

Great that Mr. Batemen put the papers up on the web.

I dont know if EW is dead, but the editorial/managerial staff was making a Homeric effort to kill it.

Hi John,
As far I know, EW completely disappeared two years ago. For years, EW had some audio articles, and most of them were very innovative. I think the first I bought was in 1978 and it contained two articles whose authors were no less than Peter Baxandal ( a part of his now famous series about amplifier design) and Siegfried Linkwitz (his first audio system with active LR 24 dB crossovers and transforms).
The beginning of the end :

Electronics World Magazine have lost the plot..!!!!!

A very sad story.

I to use to subscribe to EW, it was a mine of useful information over the years. As you all say went downhill rapidly, so much so that I did'nt renew subscription about 3 years ago. I used to renew on a 5 yr basis but thought at the time the way this is going it won't be around much longer. Has the magazine totally finished now I wonder. I miss reading the articles by Cyril Bateman /Self/Duncan and all.

Hi Giaime
---Some interesting files show 404 error on that site, how bad.---
Seems to be due to limitations of bandwidth and limited downloads.

---That's interesting stuff---
O yes !

The generous mr. Bateman also put up his articles , published and some till now unpublished for all to download and read- a great many insights based on knowledge and 1000s of measurements on capacitors, cables etc
disspelling many a myth and providing practical advice for diyers and pros alike.
If you read his stuff thoroughly, youll know more than many audio Gurus !

Its a shame if we all keep fumbling in the dark while the voodoo snakeoil capacitors and sinister cable salesmen ply their trade

At a very reasonable cost , He even sells the pcbs and article CD for repeating his hardware designs in 1ppm thd oscillators and filters, for use in many high definition measurements
using a PC soundcard and Fft software (like the www.audiotester.de)
For measuring instantaneous thd changes while capacitors charge he made a 2&3rd harmonic realtime analyser,
and a Tdfd IMD analyser both I have not seen elsewhere-

I am genuinely impressed!

I am not sure that mr. Bateman still sells his pcb´s ready made.
his CD´s and other files are here : http://uk.geocities.com/cyrilb2@btin...wnloads_5.html,
generously , some files are downloadable directly. Some PCB´s are published in there and are not difficult to DIY or order from a local PCB source.
I will try to contact Cyril rgd pcs.
best,
