15:32 Experimentonomen g'aftahnoon peepz
15:33 * Experimentonomen got two audio things with him home today from work
15:33 Electricguy ahoy
15:33 Electricguy what audio things? :P
15:35 Experimentonomen a yamaha natural sound stereo receiver (free) and a TEAC 1-Bit DAC CD player (that i bought for 5.5 euros) because it'll fit in my rack metter than the ones i have
15:35 Electricguy ah nice
15:35 Electricguy thats very cheap for a CD deck
15:35 LemLap joined ##thegeekgroup
15:36 Experimentonomen and right before i went home, someone dropped off two B&W DM-5 loudspeakers
15:36 Electricguy btw, your rack looks nice. a LOT bigger than most of these stereo racks are
15:36 Electricguy ooh cool
15:36 Experimentonomen and another yamaha receiver that on full volume was not even loud
15:36 Electricguy lol ok
15:37 Experimentonomen that rack was a bit of a pain to lug up the stairs alone
15:37 Experimentonomen :/
15:37 Electricguy lol i'd bet
15:38 Experimentonomen i bight drag home some Briklin speakers too because the guy that tests electronic stuff is unsure if their even sellable in the store
15:38 Electricguy ah ok
15:39 Electricguy they look shabby?
15:40 Experimentonomen they look pretty good
15:40 Electricguy if they look like this, which apparently was a pretty popular model, don't take them http://web.comhem.se/~u79100617/salu/briklin_400w-1.jpg
15:41 Electricguy we got a pair of these in our garage.. and DAMN.. they ONLY got a lot of bass and treble
15:41 Electricguy NO mids at all o_O
15:41 Electricguy but they look kinda impressive..
15:41 Experimentonomen but as briklin are known for making surround systems rather than hifi speakers, we think they are only meant for the rumble and such in movie
15:41 Electricguy yeah
15:42 Electricguy they play loud as heck.. but they don't sound all that good sadly
15:42 Experimentonomen they say briklin on them and on a pane of glass on top
15:42 Electricguy but with a pair of nice tops to fill in the mids they would sound pretty darn good
15:42 Experimentonomen i believe the model is Briklin 150
15:43 Electricguy like this one? http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz310/dennis1989/Stereo/IG_0010.jpg
15:43 Experimentonomen ya
15:43 Electricguy oki. that model seem to have a much better midrange driver
15:43 Electricguy so they may actually sound pretty good. hehe
15:44 Experimentonomen i'll test them over lunch tomorrow just outta curiosity
15:44 Electricguy ok! :)
15:44 Experimentonomen i do that sometimes, take some stereo stuff and test it even though its low priority stuff as we dont sell much
15:44 Experimentonomen like the cd player i bought have been on the shelf since before i started there 5-6 weeks ago
15:45 Electricguy lol ok
15:45 Electricguy yeah CD players don't sell all that good anymore
15:47 Experimentonomen i bought it just cuz it has the full width form factor
15:47 Experimentonomen the ones i had before are smaller and doesent fit, as u could prolly tell in the pic
15:47 Electricguy ah oki
15:48 Electricguy yeah thse smaller ones are cheap nasty ones
15:48 Electricguy i have had 3 of these smaller ones. one MARK one Magnavox and one that i can't remember the brand on.. all 3 looked EXACTLY the same inside XD
15:48 Electricguy even had the same numers on the PCBs
15:49 Electricguy numbers*
15:49 Experimentonomen i may bring one of those with me tomorrow, then i could also check over that quiet yamaha cs-220 receiver, the other guy thinks its just those B&W speakers that are too heavy to drive for a 2x35W amp
15:49 Electricguy lol.. if ia pair of speakers that old are heavy to drive, then something is seriously wrong :P
15:50 Experimentonomen well there are speakers that actually do need a 500 watt amp before they even give off a whisper
15:50 Experimentonomen atleast thats what ppl claimed about the JBL SUB-1500 subwoofer driver
15:51 Electricguy yeah but they are big ass ones with heat sinks
15:51 Electricguy normal hifi speakers should come up to nromal volume with a couple of Watts
15:52 Experimentonomen like my speakers, makes ur ears bleed with a little wimpy 2x5 watt class A amp
15:52 Electricguy hehe yeah :P
15:52 Experimentonomen btw the ratings on those briklin speakers are a bit funny, "reccommended amp 2-75W"
15:52 Electricguy like the Cerwin vega's i got here.. with approx 10Watts on each speaker the damn bastards rattle windows and other stuff XD
15:52 Experimentonomen 20-75*
15:52 Electricguy LOL
15:53 Experimentonomen with 150 peak
15:53 Electricguy sounds... hrm.. good.. XD
15:53 Electricguy or 16kW P.M.P.O :P
15:54 Experimentonomen or 100kW ILS ;)
15:54 Electricguy lol :P
15:54 Electricguy hmm.. i'm thinking about bbqing something dead for dinner
15:56 Experimentonomen im gonna do that spagetti thing with bacon and grated pizza cheese
15:56 Electricguy ooh thats nice :D
15:57 Experimentonomen there should also be gräddfil in it but i find it tasted better without it
15:58 Experimentonomen u good at cooking btw ?
15:58 Electricguy i use to do that with this instead http://www.mediabanken.se/WS/Arla/FoodService/v110/Image.aspx?opvno=ymOfGCFDN1twKBRGOReeOw%3D%3D&itype=Jpg300p
15:58 SparkyProjects joined ##thegeekgroup
15:58 Electricguy really nommy
15:58 Experimentonomen personally i hate cooking
15:58 Electricguy i'm not very good at it, and i don't really enjoy it.. but the end result is nice :P
15:58 Experimentonomen i cant even fry a fucking egg :/
15:59 Electricguy lol thats not extremely easy.. XD i can bearely do it either
15:59 Electricguy i use to end up with a pile of egg gunk
15:59 Experimentonomen yup
15:59 Experimentonomen which i just pour into the sink and let it stink like something died until it decomposes enuf that it falls through the holes
16:00 Electricguy lol
16:00 Experimentonomen i absolutely despise doing dishes too :/
16:00 Experimentonomen HATE it!!!!
16:00 Electricguy i even hate putting the crap in the dishwasher.. XD
16:01 Experimentonomen atleast u have a dishwasher, i don't :(
16:01 Electricguy well that sux
16:01 Electricguy get one of of these benchtop ones
16:01 Experimentonomen theres not even anywhere to put one
16:02 Experimentonomen kitchen is so small that even the microwave sits on a stool
16:02 Electricguy lol then it's bad
16:04 Experimentonomen http://s798.photobucket.com/albums/yy267/TheElectroNoob/lagenheten/?action=view&amp;current=012.jpg <-- the piccy sux but u get teh idea
16:04 BotSteve Title: lagenheten :: 012.jpg picture by TheElectroNoob - Photobucket
16:04 Electricguy ah
16:04 Electricguy on the floor to the right of the fridge perhaps
16:05 Electricguy these benctop washers are like 50cm wide
16:06 Electricguy or on the diskbänk where you got the dishes in that pic..
16:06 Experimentonomen prollem is the plumbing
16:07 Electricguy you can get hose adapters that you put on the tap
16:07 Electricguy i believe there are quick disconnect ones too
16:08 Electricguy and then just put the outlet in the sink
16:08 Experimentonomen mebbe
16:09 Electricguy it's an option at least
16:09 Experimentonomen but theres no way i could afford to buy a dishwasher with my current income
16:09 Electricguy look around for free ones perhaps
16:09 Experimentonomen unless erikshjälpen gets one donated
16:10 Electricguy yeah
16:15 * Experimentonomen tests the yammy and cd player
16:15 Experimentonomen my lab speakers are really easy to drive :o
16:19 mashpriborintorg joined ##thegeekgroup
16:20 mashpriborintorg hi
16:20 mashpriborintorg melting: 99.5% done
16:21 * Experimentonomen plays as loud as his speakers will go without the woofers distorting audibly
16:24 mashpriborintorg Experimentonomen, i already received my Galaxy tab pouch from China :D
16:24 mashpriborintorg took less then 2 weeks
16:25 Experimentonomen hm
16:25 Experimentonomen usually chinashipping takes ages
16:25 mashpriborintorg it was it the regular mail it seems
16:26 mashpriborintorg quality seems ok for the price
16:26 Experimentonomen hm i wonder if i still have the knobs from the other yammy receiver i trashed a while back
16:28 HighMan joined ##thegeekgroup
16:34 wannabe|tgg joined ##thegeekgroup
16:39 * Experimentonomen watches a UK plug dance on top of his speakers
17:00 Experimentonomen http://i.imgur.com/ghFN2.jpg
17:01 mashpriborintorg pretty stuff
17:01 mashpriborintorg even if audiofools consider it as shit, not expensive enough
17:03 Experimentonomen and what i did in that pic is what you do NOT do
17:03 Experimentonomen never put another unit on top of the amp, the amp will in most cases overheat and break
17:04 mashpriborintorg is it me or the amp as a missing foot
17:04 mashpriborintorg *has
17:04 Experimentonomen its missing a foot and a knob, hence why i was granted permission to take it home free of charge, even though its against the stores policy
17:06 mashpriborintorg great, has they do not pay you, at least you won something :p
17:06 Experimentonomen i have a replacedment foor for it, and i may still have a knob left from a similar receiver i scrapped a while ago
17:06 mashpriborintorg the only question is where it is
17:06 Experimentonomen apart from the missing stuff, the thing is 100% in working order
17:07 mashpriborintorg and not a cheap thing
17:07 Experimentonomen usually ther input selector on these old natural sound yamaha receivers have gone intermittent, rendering the thing more or less useless, but this one is still hanging in there
17:07 Experimentonomen and it has a pretty LED display rather than  the boring LCD
17:08 mashpriborintorg I have a Yamaha E400 mini stereo since almost 10 years, great little stuff, worth the price
17:09 Experimentonomen though this thing is only 2x35W per channel into 4 ohms so its by no means any power monster
17:12 wannabe-afk joined ##thegeekgroup
17:15 Experimentonomen we also have two complete systems by Technics sitting in the store, one has dsome nice speakers with 10" woofers and really beefy speaker cables
17:16 Experimentonomen olne comes with a pioneer cassette type cd changer though
17:17 SparkyProjects http://www.whatdoestheinternetthink.net
17:17 SparkyProjects Conclusion: It seems the internet cannot decide what to make of sparky  projects. :D
17:17 BotSteve Title: Whatdoestheinternetthink.net
17:51 Experimentonomen hm looks like i have alrfeady thrown away all the knobs from the other yammy :/
18:37 Seroster joined ##thegeekgroup
18:37 Seroster Yo SparkyProjects?
18:38 Seroster aw.
18:46 SparkyProjects wassup ?
18:46 BotSteve sparkyprojects: I have the following messages for you:
18:46 BotSteve At 18:38Z, Seroster asked me to tell sparkyprojects Yo dude, the thrift store find:   http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=3778660181957&amp;set=a.1613384131409.2081280.1140476802&amp;type=1&amp;theater   Isn't that a thing of beuaty?!
18:46 Seroster Ohai
18:46 SparkyProjects Looks cool :)
18:46 Seroster Worsk like a charm =)
18:51 Seroster What would you give for such at hing?
18:52 SparkyProjects No idea, maybe up to £10, but i may bargain for lower
18:53 Seroster £5 =)
18:53 SparkyProjects That's if i had a use for it without changing it
18:54 Seroster But its pretty
18:54 SparkyProjects Might be powerful enough for one end of a small tesla coil winder, i assume you have the foot pedal too
18:54 Seroster Yep
18:55 Seroster But why? I'm using it as a grinding wheel
18:55 SparkyProjects That works too
18:55 Seroster Feels strange to use it for what it was intended to do =P
18:56 SparkyProjects looks like something a jeweler would use (grinding/polishing)
18:56 Seroster I'm sceptical
18:56 Seroster Do you see that conical threaded thing on the end?
18:56 Seroster I think that is supposed to dig into a piece of wood
18:57 Seroster AFAIK jewelers don't mess with wood =P
18:57 SparkyProjects You can get grinding/polishing wheels with a tapered centre
18:57 Seroster Ooo
18:58 Seroster But the shaft is REALLY smooth in the holder, and there is absolutely no play whatsoever
18:58 SparkyProjects Might be a specialist thing, doubt you'll find them in a DIY store
18:58 Seroster I bet
18:58 Seroster And I bet the wheel costs more than the damn machine =P
18:58 Seroster I needed a grinding wheel, the holder was just a bonus =)
19:01 SparkyProjects http://www.clarketooling.co.uk/tools/Bench_Grinders___Grinding_Wheels.html
19:01 SparkyProjects See the polishing kit halfway down, notice the taper shaft
19:01 BotSteve Title: Clarke Tools - Chronos Bench Grinders & Grinding Wheels
19:02 SparkyProjects besides, you can grip a shaft for a grinder in the chuck, and it looks like the chuck could  be removed for a wheel
19:05 injektion joined ##thegeekgroup
19:05 Seroster ye
19:06 Seroster atm theres both a wheel and a chuck
