Default Rod Elliott saves the day again!

Well, I must commend Rod Elliott for his wonderful site and projects!

His P38 "auto relay" circuit works excellently for my BIC subwoofer. Yes, the sub has an "off-auto'on" switch, but since the power transformer in it is connected to AC at all times, it drew 50 watts AC no matter what. A few years back I installed a line on-off switch, but grew weary of having to turn the thing on every time I wanted to watch TV. (I use the sub to augment the tiny flatscreen TV speakers). Now, with a tiny transformer added for 12V to the P38 circuit, it now only draws 1, maybe 2 watts, until the P38 senses the sound from the TV, then kicks in the BIC transformer, then back off if no sound from the TV after 10 minutes. I'm happy.......

His other project, P99, a Sallen-Key steep rumble filter, is great for the console stereo I re-designed, as well as a custom jukebox I designed. No more "feedback" and howling at high volumes when playing records, and who needs "sub-sonic" crap in their music anyway?

The man is a genious. Much thanks Rob, if you read this. Keep up your fine work.

His projects are great. I built a phono pre based on his design, and it works very well indeed.

Default Better Quality PCB's Please

Rod Elliott has good stuff to read.

Rod if you are reading I would be willing to pay more and buy more of your PCB's if they were better quality.

Finding shorted traces when I turn thing on is no fun.

Thanks DT

That's why it pays to inspect boards first, for any possible minute flaws.
It's common sense, and part of careful assembly.

Hello,

The boards that I have purchased from Rod have been consistently Bad, the worst.

I am willing to pay more to get better.

Give them a look see, sure.

Quality Control is not my job.

Thanks DT

At least you got the boards.

Two months later and I have nothing and all I got when I emailed is "I mailed them, my work is done"

He can be quite an ornery critter.
