A Stereo for Dr. X

Post by asthmatic camel » Tue Aug 14, 2018 1:39 pm

If Bruce can have a home, Dr. X deserves a stereo thread dedicated to his humble magnificence.

I shall begin.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Math doesn't work: Even at 24 volts and assuming 4 ohm speakers, you won't be making 50 watts (rms) per channel unless you've managed to redefine what a watt is. They're careful not to specify rms power definition.

Plus the sumbitch is too small in that if it produces 100 watts, it really needs to consume 200 watts assuming class B operation and that 50% efficiency is being generous. Silly thing would smoke itself.

I declare it to be ScamJunk(tm) and not a true stereo.

Doctor X goes to buy a stereo...

Apart from what sparks said (can't fool the engineer! :) ):

Being from the UK you could have suggested the excellent Nytech gear, of which I have the vintage:

which has served me well for 30+ years. (Notice it has only volume and balance. No frills! :mrgreen: )
