15:39 Experimentonomen g'aftahnoon peepz
15:39 Electricguy honk
15:39 Experimentonomen i may be bringing home two old hitachi speakers tomorrow for 5 euros with rotted foam surrounds
15:40 Electricguy lol ok
15:40 Electricguy i hacked that ALESIS audio sample player i got from Chipguy into a parallel port DAC :P
15:40 Experimentonomen hm
15:41 Electricguy so now i can play modules on my Toshiba from 1986 :D
15:42 Lt_Lemming sigh, downloaded the opening ceremony from the olympics...
15:42 Lt_Lemming it's the fucking NBC one where they never shut up
15:46 Experimentonomen talking over it eh ?
15:46 Lt_Lemming yeah
15:47 Lt_Lemming stopped watching, deleted it, downloading the BBC coverage
15:47 wannabe|tgg joined ##thegeekgroup
15:47 Experimentonomen thats typical for tv reporters :/
15:47 Lt_Lemming no, it's typical for AMERICAN reporters
15:47 Experimentonomen i get annoyed by radio stations that cut the songs with like half a minute left of the song, especially if its a song i really like
15:48 Lt_Lemming "oh look, you hearing my voice is more important than you hearing the thing you are ACTUALLY TRYING TO FUCKING WATCH!"
15:48 Electricguy do radio play music you LIKE? ! O:
15:48 Electricguy they surely don't at my place
15:49 Experimentonomen it used to happen before they started playing the same few song over and over for years
15:50 SparkyProjects joined ##thegeekgroup
15:51 * Lt_Lemming says fuck it and watches "Milk" instead
15:54 Experimentonomen g'aftahnoon sparko
15:54 SparkyProjects Hi
15:55 Electricguy sparkomatic
16:05 Experimentonomen thats a shitty car audio brand ;p
16:06 Electricguy at least it was :P
16:06 Electricguy pretty shitty. but ahead of it's time :P
16:07 Experimentonomen i remember thoughout gymnasiet, a class mate kept bringing a sparkomatic car amp around from time to time that was literally blown to smithereens inside
16:07 Electricguy LOL
16:08 mom-phone joined ##thegeekgroup
17:05 * Experimentonomen looks at foam surround repair kits
17:13 Experimentonomen old twoway speakers like these old hitachi speakers are prolly not worth refoaming, but im gonna do it anyways
17:14 Sgt_Lemming joined ##thegeekgroup
17:14 Experimentonomen and i think they have 10" woofs, which is why i wanned them despite the rotted surrounds
17:15 Electricguy oki
17:15 Experimentonomen wb lemmington
17:15 Lt_Lemming ello, just doing a bit of the ol hard drive shuffl
17:16 Lt_Lemming moving a 500GB 5400rpm 2.5" into this machine so I can put my 320GB 7200rpm drive into the laptop
17:16 wannabe|tgg hi lem!
17:17 Lt_Lemming lo wannabe|tgg
17:17 wannabe|tgg how are you?
17:18 Lt_Lemming not too bad
17:18 Lt_Lemming yourself?
17:18 wannabe|tgg doing well
17:19 Lt_Lemming good to hear
17:19 wannabe|tgg enjoying my front desk position :D
17:20 Lt_Lemming heh
17:20 Lt_Lemming nice
17:24 Experimentonomen finally a set of earphones with good sound
17:25 Electricguy i don't know why i have been listeing to MODs on a computer from 1986 all day long.. XD
17:26 Experimentonomen prolly same reasons as i can play the old megaman soundtracks out loud for hours on end not only at home but also at work on my psp while working :P
17:27 Electricguy lol yeah :P
17:27 Electricguy it somehow feels more fun as i have hacked together my own parallel port DAC too :P
17:27 Electricguy it sounds SOOO much better than the R2R ladder :P
17:29 Experimentonomen maybe cuz its based around a actual dac chip rather than just a r2r ladder
17:29 Electricguy lol yeah
17:29 Electricguy this DAC do have an R2R ladder inside
17:29 Electricguy but it's probably much better than my DIY one :P
17:30 Experimentonomen prolly a few hundred steps too rather than the usual 8
17:30 Electricguy yeah
17:30 Electricguy it's a PCM54HP DAC
17:31 Electricguy actually a 16bit DAC
17:31 Electricguy but with some tweaking around i got it to work fine with 8 bits
17:32 Electricguy seems like the Technics SL-P1000 got it too
17:32 Electricguy which is one damn cool CD player :P
17:33 Electricguy http://www.adrian-kingston.com/SL-P1000.htm
17:33 BotSteve Title: Adrian-Kingston.com - Technics SL-P1000 CD Player
17:33 Electricguy the most well built home CD player i've seen
17:35 Experimentonomen hm
17:35 Electricguy if it's good enough for a 1987 CD player it's good enough to play MODs in MS-DOS XD
17:35 Experimentonomen :P
17:36 Electricguy i think i have to recap the PSU in the ALESIS box though
17:37 Electricguy there is some hum on the output
17:37 Experimentonomen oki
17:37 Electricguy the box takes 9VAC in and makes it into a split supply inside
17:37 Electricguy to power the OP amps
17:38 Experimentonomen no Vregs ?
17:38 Electricguy a shame that MODPLAY PRO only takes .MOD files
17:38 Electricguy oh, yes. a 7805 and a 7905
17:38 Experimentonomen should delete the hum
17:38 Electricguy shouldn't hum.. but it does
17:39 Experimentonomen ground loops mebbe
17:39 Electricguy possibly
17:40 Electricguy gonna open it up and see what i can do about it
17:41 Electricguy can snap a picture of the crude hack too XD
17:41 Experimentonomen oki
17:42 * Experimentonomen finally decided to bite the dust and spend 30 euros on a set of decent earphones, turns out it paid off
17:42 Experimentonomen hopefully the plug end of the cable will last a bit longer too
17:43 electricguyLab hmmm one filter cap is a bit warm
17:43 Experimentonomen replace
17:44 electricguyLab yeah
17:44 Experimentonomen if the rail voltage goes down all way to 0, hum can still get through the vreg
17:44 Experimentonomen as making split rail from a ac input = halwave voltage doublers
17:47 electricguyLab hmmm the cap measures ok.. but i replace it anyways
17:47 electricguyLab its not supposed to run warm
17:51 Electricguy yep. a new cap got rid of the hum
17:51 Electricguy here is the very ugly but functional hack :P http://i.imgur.com/tCRi9.jpg
17:52 Experimentonomen http://www.sony.co.uk/product/hcs-surround-kit---dvd-player/dav-dz111#/TechnicalSpecs <-- today we got one of these in, the power ratings are LOL, total 850WRMS with a 150W input rating XD
17:52 BotSteve Title: DAV-DZ111 (DAVDZ111, DAVDZ111.CEK) : TV & home cinema : Sony
17:53 Electricguy HAHAHA XD
17:53 Experimentonomen if it doesent work, im gonna ask if i can take it apart, yes it is class d and no i do not like class d, but i'd like the amp board anyways
17:54 Electricguy yeah it'll have some fun analog stuff anyways
17:54 Electricguy most likely
17:54 Electricguy if it's not a big single IC
17:55 Experimentonomen i have some texas instruments class d board that has a IF on it that takes a PWM input and boosts it to speaker driving levels
17:56 Experimentonomen it also has a second ic on it that taked I2S data input and turns it into PWM
17:58 Electricguy oki
18:02 Experimentonomen http://diymania.hv4all.com/tiamp/ <-- the power side has been raped though
