    Hi Tom,

    Glad I mentioned my laptop replacement to you, you're giving me some food for thought.

    RE:

    -one laptop on 8 installed 10 ..nothing but problems.

    -one desktop couldn't get past the login and so let W10 reload a new copy of itself .... it's been pretty good, new daily driver.

    Was Win 8 laptop maybe too old or not performing enough to run Win 10? So is Win 10 good in your view on a new laptop with factory fresh installed Win 10? Don't want to live again horrors like those of Win 8...

    Btw initially had a Win 7 desktop as back-up. However, wife's XP desktop went dead. If I bought her a Win 8 (no Win 7 left) I knew she would strangle me within a few days at most! not being computer savvy at all and Win 8 being quite different. So I gave her my back-up Win 7 desktop and I took the hit getting a new one Win 8, what a drag... Positive side: at least it saved me from strangulation! LOL Regards,

    Richard

    HP laptop with W10 upgraded over W8.1 ...... sucked, just too many problems. GUI terrible, ran classic shell to imitate W7. Current model with 6gb ram.

    The desktop that I bought had W10, there is a key combo to reload the entire OS. That's worked out pretty well. Still run classic shell.

    lots of W10 in this thread. ==>> http://www.audioheritage.org/vbullet...ows-10-warning

    Hi Seawolf,

    Revox from a mail-order catalog is surprising to me. JBL maybe for more consumer stuff, but Revox??

    Revox ? sure ... and B&O , Thorens, Marantz , AR ..etc. ... but remember $200 was a fair handful of bux in 1972. On the NIKON page they were more pricey than JBL.

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for the Win 10 Pic. Couldn't stop laughing. Great imagination. You made my day with this... Maybe the revised plans for 737 Max 8?? Regards,

    yup.

    the only issue I had with the new box was that there was a BIOS password. All my training has said that the first thing when diagnosing problems is to make sure CMOS is up to date. But I couldn't with it P/W protected.

    I downloaded the manual but it didn't tell me where the jumper was ... had to google an annotated image of the motherboard.

    Been dreading doing this ..gather tools, unplug, move junk ...

    But today I took 2 Advils, gathered lights, foreceps, camera (cant see close, but then I take a pic and can zoom in) , downloaded new CMOS update ..etc.

    Thankfully all went OK. W10 seems faster and sound from it's DAC maybe is better. Should have done this when I got the box, but you know ......

    later: found a pic of the Denon

    Hi seawolf,

    A)Never seen here B & O, Revox, and such others in mail-order catalogs, but the US is the land of all possibilities...

    Btw I replied to your post and two large eyes were watching me! Fine I like those. Then come back and the avatar pic is now a monkey on a bicycle looking at me, LOL, fun. Great finds for these pics, I like them.

    Some recent ones I can remember: You on the bike, na (sorry); on top of the big wave you seemed pretty sporty, good; reincarnated as a Kohala up in the tree you looked pretty well, cosy and relaxed, nice; holding a live AC wire and having all hair up, was pretty cool, don't worry it doesn't reflect your electrical skills; as a cavern man or aka prisoner of the Taliban for 10 years, na doesn't show you at your best; etc. Remember I'm a follower of these, keep them coming as they're often the smile or laugh of the day...

    B) Since we haven't written for a while, FYI i never found locally mini disks (MD) for my recorders, Sony or other. But did see just a few Digital Audio Tapes (DAT) at $10. each, maybe I should have bought a DAT recorder?

    C) On the Sony topic, have you heard about their latest invention? Mentioned some months ago on Bloomberg TV. Cannot be more sad than this: an air conditioning device for shirt! Yes, an AC for shirt from an audio company... Felt like writing them "Sony, please stop dishonoring yourselves, give us instead some new audio technology" (honor supposed to be a big thing in Japan, but you know Asia much better than me). At that point, I think I'd just jump-off the bridge, trying to save the little honor left.

    With climate change and planet warming up, an AC shirt could be a hit some day, but from Sony? (btw expected price $130.US). The dismay of a former audio technology developer/leader. Can't believe that, unless its a collateral application of another invention like power amps cooling maybe?? Still doubt that. To me its a sad sign there's nothing in the pipeline in terms of new audio technologies coming. "Another new Sony", trying to stay alive as a gadgets company?

    D) Plus, things aren't really going any better for Japan as a whole. Also heard on Bloomberg TV 6-12 months ago. Japan Govt wants to launch a new "national project" which could bring some pride or shine on the country. They haven't had a tech/commercial hit for quite a while they said, former ones mentioned: Sony's Walkman, Toyota's Prius, third one named can't remember what it was, getting too old I guess (like when wife sends me to grocery store, "easy, just remember: three things", I do remember well "three things" at store, but what are they ? LOL Either short of one or need to call her, man's memory she says, LOL).

    Their "brilliant" idea is flying cars! 10 year time frame. Looking for private investors to go ahead. The last thing the planet needs is probably another car AND another drone, so a "dronecar". Those having expertise in both cars and flying as far as I know, Honda and Mitsubishi are unlikely, in my view, to invest a single dime in this adventure. I would not, for many reasons like commercial success? development costs, pricing, logistics required, air traffic control already overloaded with planes & helicopters, etc.

    One would expect from Japan something more along robots with artificial intelligence for example. Japan, as well as Sony, seem to be broken down, suffering from a severe idea drought, poor focus on their core expertise and lack of technology leadership. Never could imagine they would come-up with such things. Just in case my assessment of the situation is wrong, you might as well start chasing your AC shirt device and get going on planning your personnal take-off/landing space, something may be coming home... Regards,

    Richard

    My recollection is that catalog was headquartered in Japan , even I was surprised that euro gear was in it.

    you've a much better memory than me. I had to look up and see what the current one is .. I do have a big folder of ones that have been collected to be used as needed.

    CL is a fine source for MD's (beware tho that Sony only rates them for 100K rewrites per disk.

    Too bad that you weren't looking when I was selling ... had 5 cases (100 disks per) of Sony Gold Premium 80 minute disks ..sealed. Shipped them all over, tho kept a loose, non boxed 50 for my own use.

    Hi Tom,

    So with the help of 2 Advils you had to screw around to get the work done, pretty usual isn't it? What you basically did on the desktop is locate the jumper, clear CMOS with it because of password protection, got a new CMOS and installed it. You're lucky no issues playing with CMOS and W10 recognized everything.

    Sometimes what should be an easy job turns into a nightmare, and tough ones go better than expected. Been there too many times with the former. Now when wife asks how long will it take fixing this, answer is: I don't know (not exactly what she wants to hear). Had so many surprises... And while I'm in it might as well do it right to forget about it hopefully for years to come.

    RE pic of the big Denon TT. I remember that big platter with the controls, nice. I like the idea of having the controls next to each other on platter rim. Quite clever to have grouped them there. Better than AT LP120 for example having controls everywhere on top panel. But these Denon were pricy as I recall. Regards,

    Richard

    If my desktop was on the desktop, it wouldn't have been too bad, but .... it's on the floor , in the foot well of the desk along with a JBL 120Ti. cables to it's back so couldn't move it out much. did pull the speaker so I could get under the desk. it's dark down there.
    I'd made a map of the motherboard to guide me, but the power supply blocked the area where the jumper is ... so I've got a flashlight in one hand, forceps in the other, blindly trying to find that jumper. Plus my closeup vision doesn't work well.
    Blew off the CMOS and then struggled to get the jumper back on. Poor design on the case opening and it doesn't want to screw closed.
    Then it's "hope this BIOS upgrade doesn't brick the computer". it all worked out, but wouldn't want to do it everyday.

    Oh. That Denon minidisk player went out the door within 8 hours of posting the ad. It paid for at least a dozen of my latest audio purchases.

    home this TG day doing chores & HD cleanup ... found pics of 2 more of my TT's (yeah, I know..the Delphi doesn't have it's arm yet ) and that SA amp.

    RMC .... I thought about DAT , but the drawbacks compared to MD were just too big.

    The editing capabilities on MD are great ... I can plug my PC keyboard into the deck and do titling or editing. erase, join, re-sequence ..etc. On the MD website they mention that a CD dubbed to MD can sound better than the original, since the MD deck usually has a better DAC.
    I grab disks at flea markets, CL or anywhere they are found. Used doesn't really matter as mag tape does.

    On one vacation , I put 320 minutes of The Rolling Stones , Beatles, Moodies (their entire catalogs) , 1 each on a MD since the portables get 52 hours on a single AA bat.

    We were in a 220v country and wasn't sure where I could recharge an iPud.
