Silly design of speaker. by Brian Gaff
I bought some fairly cheap bookshelf two unit speakers, and they sound fine as long as they are at least a couple of foot away from a wall as they have a port in the back of the cabinet. However they are described as bookshelf design, and of cours as most bookshelves are on walls this somewhat makes the port at the rear a silly design. Not only that but they have the keyhole screw head...

Speaker unit to baffle. by Dave Plowman (News)
A mid range unit - say about 4" - in a suitable sealed box. Remind me of the difference between mounting it on the rear of the baffle, front, or recessed flush to it? I've seen all done on commercial designs. -- *If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled? Dave Plowman London SW To e-mail, change noise into sound.

Honky room by Brian Gaff
My bedroom is almost square with one corner with an airing cupboard and the next one sliced off by the chimney as it runs up from the floor below. It has this middle sounding honk no matter what speakers I use. Short of coating all the walls with old cardboard egg boxes I wondered if these new miracle speakers from Sonos might help, or is this room auto compensation stuff just hype as to me...

Free Book :-) by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
Just to let people know that I have now made freely available a PDF version of the book I wrote mumble years ago on Information and Measurement. Can be obtained from http://jcgl.orpheusweb.co.uk/InformationAndMeasurement_PDF_Book.pdf The explanations use various examples like CD Players, etc, to illustrate the underlaying methods and science. Cheers,

PC sound hardware need by Brian Gaff
Hi, our local Talking newspaper has a problem. The problem is this. The sound hardware both in the pc and the cheap Behringer box have got a fixed level monitor of the input, not even mute works on the latter and the internal card only has level monitor adjust if you accept latency, which is unacceptable. Are there any reasonably priced sound cards or usb interfaces which allow simple...

Is Manx Radio suddenly at huge power? by Brian Gaff
I notice that Manx Radio is now the strongest station on Medium wave at night on 1368Khz, and its jingles proclaim the nations station. It even fades like Luxemburg used to. They claim to have been in existence since 1964. I also notice that the Isle of man now have a domain, ie .im At the moment the adverts are pretty locally based but it does make one winder quite why they need such...

Rowridge fixed. by Andrew[_2_]
BBC FM channels back to normal, or even better than before, although this might be because I paid a visit to the loft and cleaned up the connections to my 3-el loft FM aerial. Mind you it has now become nice and dry which seems to help. Does anyone know what they were doing for so many weeks ?.

Do speakers deteriorate with age? by Brian Gaff
I have a pair of Tannoy IIIlz speakers which I've used for many years and apart from cleaning up the switches in the crossover at the back, they have performed well. always a little on the bright side, they do seem in recent months to be getting significantly brighter, or kind of presence heavy. I guess it could be my ears aging but I did wonder if it might be time to either get them tested...

Car radio FM aerials by Andrew[_2_]
How do these work if only a 6 inch stub sticks out of the roof ? To get a decent FM signal indoors I need a dipole of some sort that is about 59 inches long, plus reflector and director. I ask this because I am getting interference on 88.50 Mhz from Rowridge, but not all the time. Earlier today it was bad, but the other BBC FM stations were not affected. When I drove into town, FM R2 on my car...

Hissy FM from Rowbridge by Andrew[_2_]
For quite a while now I have noticed that FM from Rowbridge on the Isle of Wight seems to be more hissy than the previous 38 years. It seems to be worst on 88.50 Mhz, which is R2. I used to have an Aiwa AX7400 receiver which was utterly brilliant at receiving FM and the signal strength meter showed a good signal where I live, about 50 miles north east of the transmitter, but slightly hidden by...

UKHHSoc and other history by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
I've started adding some more batches of info to the UKHHSoc 'collection' of old documents related to UK audio history. The most recent additions are a section on Beam Echo, plus items on Armstrong and Chapman equipment. As usual, these can be found via the main index page at http://ukhhsoc.torrens.org/AudioDocs.html I have more to add which I hope to put up fairly soon. However of late...

A complimentary music CD by Iain[_2_]
Last year 2017 was the centenary of the birth of Ella Fitzgerald, probably the greatest female jazz singer of all time. To celebrate, the big band in which I play tenor saxophone, put together a tribute project with our singer Ida and played ten concerts to capacity audiences. We used both original Ella Fitzgerald arrangements written by Nelson Riddle, and also arrangements written in 1940's...

Some CED/DVD writers are better than others by Brian Gaff
I have a relatively new computer which has two brand new cd/dvd writers in it. Neither of them seem to be able to produce universally readable standard CD recordings. Many cd decks give up when looking at them, but a DVD or an el cheapo cd player from tesco read them fine, as do many in car units. These are standard, not mp3 cds. Now on a machine upstairs I have an almost identical...
