    What do you have to do to be able to post a new thread in this forum? Are there other classical music threads that you can recomend?

    Thanks
    No, it's a Bb. It looks wrong and it sounds wrong, but it's right - Vaughan Williams.

    Default Appreciate the help

    I appreciate the help. You really should not let an old guy like me on this forum, I am not the most computer savvy. Much to learn about posting and finding my way around.

    Many thanks - I guess back to warm up the tube amplifiers.

    Actually, he had a little help creating this particular new thread ... lol ... I had pruned the post from another posting somewhere else and moved it here.

    To create a new thread, simply go to the forum area where you wish to make start a new topic for discussion, and click on the "New Thread" button at the upper left. Fill in your subject title, enter the message, and then click on "Submit New Thread" towards the bottom of the page. You can edit your own posting up to about 12 hours after submitting it.

    There are other options when creating a new thread to add a poll (10 item limit) or upload various types of files, staying within the listed file length limits.

    If you run into a problem, you can always send me a PM, or post your question in this thread. From one "old guy" to another, you'll get the hang of it eventually - took me a while at first, too.

    Tube amps, huh? Those were the good ol' days ... still have a tape deck that uses 12AU7's

    Default Tube Sherwood FM Multiplexer

    Krummhorn

    Thanks for all the help find my way around the forum is wonderful but I am new to the idea, smile faces etc.

    I suppose you don't remember the days before FM Stereo, used a Sherwood FM Multiplexer, separate amplifier with belt turntable. Hey those Red 45 records looked nice in the box.

    I can spend hours here not posting but just reading and learning. Going from tube to iPod about did me in.

    Many Thanks

    Hi kg4fxg; welcome to TC.

    Tube amplifiers, belt turntables, 12AU7s, 45's... Hmm, well, I've got a few 78's.

    Haven't even gotten around to the iPod yet.

    Would be cool to have a thread about the evolution of sound reproduction. Probably would get filled up with spam though.

    This would a good thread, but I doubt it will have many people responding. Only audiophiles like myself would respond in all probability.

    I disagree. There are enough knowledgeable people here to keep a thread like that going for a few pages at least. SO who is going to start it up??

    Its a very fascinating saga,and one which I would like to discuss. Since school days I've taken a deep interest in recorded sound,from 78's through open reel tape to lp and sacd. So what learned person would care to start things off then?
    Its a sad thing that very few of the general public have access to high quality sound reproduction these days,and the I-Pod,despite its portability,has done nothing to help the situation. A recent item in the Telegraph,according to one Hi-Fi magazine even accused hi-fi enthusiasts of thinking theirselves elitist,and suggested that no one really needs hi-fi,or so I am led to believe. Hi-Fi World,one of the few down to earth magazines,has tried to contradict this statement. Its easy for like minded people to agree,but what can be done to educate the average person in the street when there are so many other things to take their interest and money?
    I recently purchased a cd from Pristine containing recording made onto cylinders from 1899 up to about 1918,and the sound quality is amazing. One can hear sibilants,and the bass instruments are clearly recorded. In comparison with discs made later,the reproduction is wonderfully clear. Pristine have just said that they intend to issue electrical tests made during 1924 of Mengelberg conducting. These recordings should prove to be likewise fascinating to those who study the history of sound recording.
    Best wishes,Mongoose.

    I'll head on over to the hi-hi sub-forum ( http://www.talkclassical.com/hi-fi/ ) as soon as I get a chance and start things up. Unless someone beats me to it. Mongoose already has some interesting things to say.
