      DonH50 replied to the thread Magnepans 1.6 no sound.
      Yeah, may be... Magnepan would likely replace the panels and contact assemblies (terminal strips). When I got a quote to rebuild my old...

      I agree with @Alrainbow that is serious corrosion. The bass section is wire on the diaphragm, the tweeter is Al foil traces. The...

      The conductors should have fairly high resistance but what do you measure?

      This thread appears to have wandered back to just everyone attacking everyone else, and I need to go practice then enjoy the rest of my...

      He's a member of ASR, still with the AES, has presented a few talks at the PNW Audio Society, and is quite approachable. He's still...

      DonH50 reacted to Analog Scott's post in the thread Fuse and Cable Directionality with Like Like.
      That is an interesting and significant question with a complicated answer. Auditory memory is not what it seems to be. Here is a...

      DonH50 replied to the thread Fuse and Cable Directionality.
      Auditory memory is very short, something like six seconds per the AES (or IHF, or somebody). But there is also plenty of evidence for...

      Sorry Kal, I stand corrected! I forgot Arnie was the (ahem) genesis of Genesis! I miss that guy...

      Good advice. Unless the fuse was measured good it is suspect, and sometimes even then. I loved the people who wrapped the fuses in...

      DonH50 replied to the thread Fuse and Cable Directionality.
      I would not consider it "extreme", but fairly basic, and as I said most of that was done about 40 years ago. I rarely measure except...

      No, Scott is of no relation to Amir, and denigrating an alternative point of view is just as arrogant in my book. Nobody knew, or least...
