Audio Hardware / Re: “Vintage” amps
Last post by riverlethe -
I ended up returning this amp to the vinyl shop where I found it. It was shutting itself off during the Ride of the Rohirrim driving my SVS Prime towers.

Probably cut out on when a thermal sensor tripped. This is one reason to have a powered subwoofer.

I actually did have them crossed over at 40Hz, though Audyssey wanted to run them full range. It’s also attempting a +8dB boost for a null at 175Hz, so that might have something to do with it.

Did they use anything like CPU thermal paste on those heat sinks? Could it have deteriorated?

Edit: Isn’t most of the sub-bass content sent to the LFE channel in films anyway?

Try adding the column 'Part of set' to explorer.
320 is my usual preferred bitrate.
To use the Bit rate setting from the drop-down list use -b%bitrate% in the Additional command line options.
The %islow%-V5%islow%%ishigh%-V2%ishigh% setting uses -V5 when the radio button is set to Low quality or -V2 when the radio button is set to High quality.
Just pick one. Don't use both.
or use -b320
Thanks for that. Replaced the whole string up to %source% with -b320.  (I know it's probably not going to give a significant improvement in quality, but memory's considerably cheaper than it was ten years ago.)
Digital A/V News / Re: AV1 got released! (2018-03-28)

Meanwhile in ffmpeg: a commit from 16 Apr 2018:

avformat/movenc: forbid muxing AV1 streams until the spec is finished.

This prevents creating potentially broken files, as both the AV1 and
the AV1 in ISOMBFF specs are unfinished.

I was hoping to create a column to show missing items in the library with a fn similar to foo_uie_panel_splitter like the $findfile fn.

Anything like this possible. Thanks.
FLAC / Re: bug attach picture

The 8.3 "short format" is a "fallback option" in Windows - I have no idea why that happens on Windows 10 though.
A "reference":

Try to open these .FLA files in foobar2000. Likely they are just OK FLAC files, except the filename. Check it - with foobar2000, this component is a must:
A standalone application that does pretty much the same thing (for FLAC - for mp3 it will be very, very picky about the metadata blocks): Audiotester from

That makes more sense. The file extensions don't change to FLA~ but file names somehow get truncated to the short 8.3 format.
