This is cool man, what kind of speakers have you been running with them so far? I'd love to hear how it sounds hooked up to a good CD player and bookshelf speakers.

These ones I've only hooked up to some Realistic Minimus 11's and Spica TC-50's for testing. They're perfect for the 4ohm Spica TC-50's.
The first amp has a slightly louder hiss than the second one so I might revisit and see if it's because of the wiring or the module.
The amp itself sounds perfect. I used B&O IcePower 50ASX2se modules that I snagged cheap on ebay. The only down side is the input impedance dips at higher frequencies to around 6k ohms so you really need a proper powered preamp or input buffer (unity gain) circuit on the input.
I eventually plan to use them with a miniDSP HD. The miniDSP will be running room correction and the active crossover so each amp channel will be wired directly to a single driver in each speaker. Four channels for two 2-way speakers.

I'm going mad right now because one of the neon lamp indicators died on me after I finished the second amp so now I'm town between just saying gently caress it and trying to ignore it, or finding a replacement for a 30 year old neon lamp, or just replacing all the neon lamps with new ones because I can't find anything to exactly match the dead one.

This is interesting I've never heard of these....How exactly do they work? Would I benefit using one with a 2.1 powered system on my desktop?

I've got a pair of powered M-Audios and a powered Polk sub running through a DAC at the moment. It's in a pretty large echo-y room and using the EQ in Windows Media Player doesn't do much to help the sound.

MiniDSP does all the things. There's different hardware products and software solutions for almost anything audio-related.

The MiniDSP HD I got, is a very good DAC that can also handle room correction (I bought the Mic too for room analysis), has a parametric EQ and active software crossover.
You can absolutely benefit from it but you'll probably get more bang for your buck out of decent speakers and some sound absorption panels. Room correction is great, but it's not a panacea. If your room sucks, then your room sucks, and you need to fix that first. Room correction is just a way to get that last little bit of performance out of your system. Think of it like driving a race car. If you have a slow lovely car, then you can only drive it so fast no matter how good/terrible of a driver you are. If you have a really good car, but you're poo poo at driving, then you're not necessarily going to outperform the slow car. You have to take steps to improve your driving and setup before you can wring more performance out of your car.
If you're already pushing it to 9/10 in the corners, braking into the turn, hitting that apex and FLOORING it out of the turns, then you're not doing so bad. If you want to take it to 10/10 then the MiniDSP can help you take it there easily and cheaply. It can be a bit of a crutch (like traction control? I'm running out of analogies) but it's greatest use is when you're already set up for success and you just want to fine tune everything for the best possible outcome.

I bought it more as a project / proof of concept for future projects more than anything else, and to have a specifically calibrated mic for measuring speaker outputs.

e: I neglected to mention that the 2x4 HD is running miniDSP software but there is a firmware upgrade that will allow it to run Dirac 2.0 (for $200).
A good analogy of the difference between the MiniDSP and Dirac 2.0 would be like having full time active all wheel drive vs just a limited slip diff.

"So if you're really my friend, you'll sign a lease with me on a new place", someone said a few hours ago on their lunch break.

That line right there just ended any hopes of a friendship or any semblance of help aside from me helping load a moving truck after this shitshow. No. Just. loving. NO. Don't pull that guilt trip poo poo on me. Your lack of planning does not constitute an emergency on my part. Originally I was 100% on board with even driving a moving truck across the loving state and helping load/unload at both ends, then taking a COVID infested bus or plane to get back home, on my dime.

For any future ex's that wind up reading this, I will go to the ends of the earth to help you, and everyone else in my life, UNTIL you try to guilt trip me like that. The only reason I'll even bother helping to load now is because my name is also on the lease, and she got hammered by holdover fees in her last apt (same property) when she didn't finish moving out for several days after the lease was up. They still gave her 2 days free, but it wound up being several hundred dollars for the 2 or 3 days they charged her. Pretty sure the only reason she didn't get nailed harder is she lived next door to the asst property manager at the time, who got to watch her shoving everything she owned into the breezeway (yes, I tried to come down to help, I got turned away).

poo poo y'all just reminded me that I have to bake bread for croutons tonight. UGH.
Baking is fine but cooking is the best. Baking gets really time consuming and while it is definitely science, it's also part art too, ESPECIALLY when it comes to yeast and proofing.

I mean, just because you bought a dozen "AA Large" eggs doesn't mean they're all precisely the same size, or the same size as the ones you used last time. Also it could be more/less humid than what the recipe normally calls for and you have to be able to identify and adjust to yield consistent results.

Hell, even something as simple as using sugar from a fresh bag versus sugar from the bottom of a bag can change your results dramatically.

Liquid Communism posted:

Size of granules doesn't matter if you portion by weight, and flour humidity doesn't change the weight nearly as badly as it does the volume. Plus, weights instead of volumes mean easy scaling of recipes.

You weigh your eggs when you need 4lbs of them for muffin the recipe you're making in the 80 qt Hobart.

For example, my day to day muffin recipe, I made 20,000+ of these by hand over two years:

    Sugar - 8oz
    Salt - 1/10oz
    Shortening - 5 1/4oz
    Vanilla - 3/8oz
    Eggs - 5 1/4oz
    Whole Milk - 3 1/2oz
    Water - 3 1/2oz
    AP Flour - 14oz
    Baking Powder - 1/2oz

That's the 6 ~6.5oz bakery muffin minimum size version.

Method if anyone wants to make them is mix all wet ingredients (sugar counts as wet), sift together all dry ingredients, then combine. Don't over-mix. Portion into greased muffin tins and bake off. Add ~8oz frozen blueberries/chocolate chips/etc based on what you want your muffins to taste like. I like lemon oil and poppyseeds.

lol okay I was thinking MUCH smaller portions like a handfull of cookies or like 2 scones.
Yeah if you're making dumpsters full of muffins there really isn't any other weigh (see what I did there?)

Cooking chat:

I feel that one area that causes a lot of frustration with cooking, baking in particular, is recipes that are written that assume the reader has knowledge & experience of certain (often basic) techniques.

I've had to troubleshoot failures for friends and it's usually a basic issue such as not understanding what "rub butter into flour" or "cream butter & sugar" actually means, and what the result looks like. Heck half the time I don't even know why I'm doing these things, I just have the experience to know how to do them, and what they look like when done right.

Not everyone can look at a lovely recipe for bechamel and realise what they're asking when they tell you to dump flour, milk, cheese and butter in a pan is that you actually have to make a roux, gradually add the milk and then melt the cheese in at the end.

Mon dieu, I've never even considered HOW to make bechamel or that it could be totally lost on people. Because OF-loving-COURSE your roux has to be right first.

Now I'm going back over all the unwritten recipes I've sent to people over the years that's basically "uh here's the ingredients, just do the thing and it will turn out like this <insert gourmet food porn>
I mean I always thought cooking isn't magic - it's loving simple. But maybe it's not.

I mean poo poo, now that I think about it... Even making a simple French omelette really relies on a lot of practiced technique that probably not everyone "just knows how to do". Ugh now I want morels.

I mean it's one thing to just Google some poo poo, and then Google the rest of the poo poo from the first poo poo that you don't quite get, but it's definitely a whole other thing to have grown up practicing it and seeing it in action and understanding the importance of everything.

Oh no now I'm reliving all my food-snobbery moments trying to man-splain to my friends why their crepes are just lovely pancakes, or worse; when I actually asked to speak to the Chef to explain that oyster stew is more than just loving sea snot and milk

I mean I never meant to be a rear end in a top hat but now I'm starting to think that it not necessarily how I was perceived.

Another 'secret' is to pay extra for the good seed from a grass seed retailer. The stuff you get at the hardware store, even the premium label, is crap.

For example: https://www.preferredseed.com/category/?cid=55

There is a national turf seed rating program where they grow all kinds of grass in different climates in the US, NTEP, if you want to dive in deep. Some of the newer grasses just turn darker green when they go dormant, they don't turn brown.


meatpimp is absolutely right about length, something like 3" is a good spot and with good grass it will feel so soft and lush. Additionally, you stress the grass more when you cut off larger amounts of the blade, so longer grass (and more frequent cuttings) will help keep stress as low as possible.


re: dominating, I overheard my neighbor complaining to guests that our improved lawn made hers look bad 🥰

I live in a new neighborhood. They bulldozed all the soil right down to clay and threw sod on top. It used to be lush farmland before they developed it. Could have been promising but the developer hosed it.
Everyone in my neighborhood struggled to keep their sod alive for 2 years; watering daily, constantly feeding and seeding and whatnot. It was useless.
I had spent the time slowly adding gypsum and topsoil and mixing it in. I have a nice thatch layer that is the dead sod so my yard doesn't wash away completely. It looked like utter poo poo while everyone else had some semblance of "grass" which would get constantly taken over by weeds.

This past fall I finally bit the bullet and put one last layer of topsoil down followed by a couple applications of fertilizer. That week it rained a lot and the next weekend I overseeded the hell out of it after it got cold and all the geese left.
This spring I had the greenest most lush lawn in the entire neighborhood. loving clovers the size of your hand. It is amazing. Yes, I let the clover live. I love clover and it's very good for the soil.
I had to mow that thing like every 4 days while everyone elses' sod is finally giving up. My poor neighbor puts like 10 hours a week into her lawn to get it to just stay alive and my other neighbor gave up completely and his lawn is just dirt.
I'm still mowing like every 4 days.
I got a shitton of spring chikweed but I'm about to weed-and-feed tomorrow after it rains tonight and I'm sure I'll be in for another bout of "holy gently caress my lawn won't stop growing."

I mean for gently caress's sake Smallpox wiped out most of indigenous North America. Yeah I guess SOME people got immunity but almost everyone died. Why the gently caress would you want to tempt fate?
