wpwrakdata sheet mystery of the day: page 7 of http://www.vishay.com/docs/71166/71166.pdf10:09
wpwraka package drawing "For Samsung only"10:09
wpwrakanother goodie: says in fat red "New Product", data sheet is from 2012 :) http://www.vishay.com/docs/62661/si1062x.pdf10:51
sb0"Millimeters will govern"13:11
wpwrakvictory at last ! :-)13:16
larscas always, rule of the 1% (m)13:18
wpwrak0.1% ?13:19
larscah right13:20
Action: eintopf thought that bad datasheets are these which begins with english and ends with chinese13:34
DocScrutinizer05could somebody please cut the internet backbone to eastern Ukraine?19:13
DocScrutinizer05(("New Product")) well, 2012 it probably was new. They don't release a new datasheet just to remove that "New Product" writing19:23
DocScrutinizer05razher the question is, why did they write "New Product" on a datasheet? Usually they do when you could be mistaken as to think it was an updated datasheet for an already existing product19:25
DocScrutinizer05incredibly ridiculous crap: http://studiozey.com/woodencapacitor/index.html19:27
DocScrutinizer05>>Put simply: wood-modding improves the sound, across the board, and in every aspect - significantly so. The effect of wood-modding the three capacitors in the power supply of my test CD Player was comparable with a major component upgrade - you could say it was like buying a new CD Player that cost three times the price of the old one.<<19:29
DocScrutinizer05not to mention the capacitor will fall dry after only 6 months the latest, since wood isn't a good containment material. Neither is wax19:30
DocScrutinizer05>>Prolonged capacitor's life - as sealing it completely with wax will prevent any electrolyte losses.<< HARRHRRRHARR what a jackass20:03
DocScrutinizer05>>I chose a nice piece of what I believe is an exotic hardwood - sapele. It is heavy, hard, looks beautiful, and is one of the tonewoods commonly used in instrument-making - which suggests it has inherently good "vibrational properties". That ticked all of my boxes.<<20:31
DocScrutinizer05now figure this all been "inspired" by this guy http://www.dhtrob.com/projecten/dhz_weerstand_en.php - read the "hint" at end! Oh My ....  I think our Physics teacher told us about bifilar resistor coils in 5th class20:54
wpwrakhmm. he's got a good point. we should make sure the speaker casing in neo900 is made of bone from songbirds.21:06
DocScrutinizer05yeah, and coat it with a varnish made of the ashes of Caruso21:20
DocScrutinizer05>>I decided to seal mine with a ground that is rumoured to have been used by Stradivarius in his legendary violins - it is called "Vernice Bianca".<< How lame!21:22
DocScrutinizer05>>This ground is said to improve the sound of musical instruments - and, from my experiments with wood-modded capacitors and VNM Caps, it seems that this applies to audio components as well.<<21:24
DocScrutinizer05this fool should baint his ears with that goo, incl eardrums21:25
DocScrutinizer05the whole thing would be an excellent april's fool hoax, if that jackass wouldn't make money from other idiots buying that stuff. Particularly great: homemade resistors said to catch fire when used for too high load21:27
