Re: Rivendell Radio Automaiton

Maybe Scotty can replicate a few. If he can get the Dilithium to stabilize for more than a few nano-seconds.

Re: High Pitched Tone in FM Audio?

Check for a ground loop on the composite, also. Although that usually causes a low hum, there may be a feedback happening somewhere.
Is the Digit fed AES or composite, Try changing the input? Try using a different exciter? Try using a larger hammer :lol: ?
Lotsa luck, let us know what fixes this.

Re: Cleaning out the basement

While we're on the subject, I have (4) Wegener Unity 4000 rcvrs gathering dust, if anyone needs them. I remember they used to be used with some religious networks. This place had them in use years ago, before I got here. Gratis, you pay for shipping from MKE.

Re: Audio Chain > AES or Analog?

My rule of thumb (and I gots FAT thumbs!):
If you have 6 or more audio DA's, it's time to go digital. Just for the S/N, power consumption and routing nightmares.
Otherwise, digital is OK for storage.
Remember, your speakers and your ears are analog. :wink:
