I thought I already went over one proper method to terminate aluminum and you don't need to plate it in many cases. This you can look up on the internet. You did, but is there any reason to suppose that's being done in this case? It looks like mill finish aluminum to me, but the pictures aren't sup...

Korg, Roland, etc. don't have any idea what they're doing? The rest of the consumer electronics industry and the Nationally Recognized Laboratories (in the USA) that certify them must be part of the conspiracy! Korg, Roland etc. have the financial clout to have their products certified. The PSU's t...

Unfortunately I think the laptop has set a benchmark for expectations for travelling/performing musicians, but that is not without compromise. Unfortunately the laptop operating system has lowered that benchmark. :zombie: In the PA world there has been a similar drive towards Class D switching ampl...

I've never played out with Euro, but would bet that some of the cheap switchers out there have odd problems at similar "crap power" venues. I also imagine the solution here is not a Hinton power supply, it is something else to protect you from dodgy power / noise / ground / etc. I've played at fest...

Repeatedly claiming that designing an instrument in this form factor is a mistake from a technical point of view does not solve the issue at hand. The interface of an instrument is what the performer interacts with, and the case determines where and when the instrument can be used. All too often in...

I did some more measurements with my multimeter and discovered that the rails doesn’t give exactly +12, -12 and 5V. It’s more like +11,6 -12,7 and 5,8V. :eek: Could that be something? Or are these values within normal V range? The 12V rails are way out of regulation but shouldn't be harmful. 5.8V i...

The unbalanced Eurorack system has a big positive by connecting the jacks to the faceplates, as the faceplates rails and threaded strips can all become part of the common 0V impedance and reduce the resistance across a case by an order of magnitude or more compared to well laid out ribbon cables an...

I don't really like the guy (due to some of his early posts), but in the last 6 months i think his attitude has changed heaps (he doesn't come off as condescending/abusive all the time), He's really quite helpful in threads now. There are still some serious issues with Euro power that need to be ad...

Wood is a very good insulator, I doubt it contributes much. Are you presuming a closed back - ie. the panel onto which the PSU is mounted, snug into the case? I don't think this would be the suggested case! Vented panels mounted above & below - hot air rises, cool air is drawn in. Rises from where ...

You're being short-sighted. Regarding the simple power regulator - yes, a simple schematic, but the devil is in the detail. I and others have been lulled by the simplicity into making less than adequate designs! True enough. But the circuit in question is really so simple that you'd have to screw u...

John, I've seen f-all from you that suggests your technical views are to be trusted - feel free to prove me wrong. Fair enough. Where do you get this view on the regulators, for example? Could this be the sort of standpoint like where someone sees a lowly opamp (eg. TL072) and decrees that the desi...

Do you have anything constructive to offer, like an alternate service that can build a PSU to meet a customer's needs?
