(A)  Never heard of 'em -- That said, their website seems to have gone live just last month and their FB page has 7 likes, so I'd imagine few have at this point.  (EDIT) Their FB page says they just had their first order 15 days ago (/EDIT)

(B) Doesn't mention the brand of cable and I assume they're not rolling their own, but I kinda like to stay with "tried and true" stuff if I can help it. 

(C) Doesn't use "familiar" connectors.   They look like the ones Bespeco uses - which I have no particular experience with if that's the case. 

Nothing illegal there, but I'd be looking for a more "known quantity" (lack of a better term).

I was trying to find quality audio cables for home recording/mobile DJ services and I found this website with cheap, solid-looking cables: cableboom.com... I hadn't heard of them before does anyone know if they are reputable?

Hi Doug,
Sorry, my computer has had a serious bug and I haven't been able to get on line.
Did you get 180 volts on the capstan transistor and 80 volts nominal while it was running?
I'm only getting 130 and 40-45 volts while it's running.
  Another thing I have noticed is spooling motor control board 1.080.384-12 R53 (68 ohm 5 watt, right spooling motor) is so hot you can't touch it for more than a second. But R 57 (left spooling motor) is only warm to the touch. I wish I could have asked while you were there if this was normal but it doesn't seem like it should be ?

It's really cool studio design. I like the colors and modern furniture. I'm interesting in home design too but just for my own flat. Want to expend my home and create new comfortable space. What sources did you use for interior design learning?

OK, so spent some time on the Studer yesterday. We had a tension problem where the machine was pushing tape up on the exit roller with high tension, so I had pulled the tension down. Ended up replacing the pinch roller and retensioning and it was going great. But we decided to run it through a whole reel of tape, and the problem came back! Doh! However tensions remained constant and correct once the fault showed up, so I am back to it being the capstan motor. I ran out of time so will have to go back to it on another day. Our card checks out totally, so first up I am looking at the power transistor.

Nice article about Daft Punk's latest album. I hope they really can make a change regarding the loudness wars in the industry with it. I also read Mick Guzausky's interview in S.O.S about how he mixed the record.

Not sure if this album can really be seen as a "Milestone" in the music business though. Sure the production of this album is flawless from the beginning to the end (which is kind of rare on most albums nowadays). But in order to change something regarding the loudness war a lot still needs to change. Luckily Youtube, Apple and Spotify are going in the right direction.

Hey Tom, yes I believe you are right, the DMR-2000 unthreads for faster spooling.  I don't recall if it reads code while spooling; probably just CTL track.

I was the Creative Department manager at Sony DADC Australia, there for 12 years before I had to step down due to health reasons.  Most of my 1630 stuff comes from there, which is why it's frustrating trying to find this cable; I installed it and it was in situ and working until a couple of years ago when the building sustained water damage and the older mastering rooms were decommissioned. 

I deal with people who still have the odd 1630 (or 501/701 etc; often they don't know the difference).  There's also some record companies etc who still throw the odd request.  As part of our policy to have 'one of everything', I'm trying to nail this in my spare time.

I might try some of the other plants.  Thanks for the idea.  Cheers - Brett.

I agree with the above tests...I know things can get goofy if the interconnects aren't wired correctly when going from balanced to unbalanced gear. Some balanced outputs use different methods than others. I know the Apogee I have needs to have pin 3 tied to ground if feeding unbalanced gear. I'm not sure the Myteks do.

OOPs...Pretty old post...

Sorry...New guy here...
