Eaglemoss – Lord of the Rings Chess Set

Eaglemoss – Lord of the Rings Chess Set

For many people Lord of the Rings is just a book or movie, but it is a philosophy for me. Not only the war of good against evil is told but also industrialization against hand labor, metal against nature, the struggle of hope against terror. In this sense, you can feel the difficulty in your life in a different way which Sam, Gimli, or an ordinary Gondor soldier has experienced. So LOTR is a concept in my life and I’m not complaining it. And sometimes I find a new way to bring it to my...

Michell Gyrodec Turntable

Michell Gyrodec Turntable

I always thought that task of a turntable seems to be simple. At audio frequencies, the arm should be kept locked above the groove, without any motion relative to the cartridge. And the LP should be turned at a constant angular speed underneath the stylus. This means that, the pieces ie. platter, bearing, (sub)chassis, arm board, tone arm, and cartridge body should behave in a rigid and non-resonant fashion.     John Michell (R.I.P) was a brilliant engineer and has various solutions...

SME V Tonearm

This was a dream come true. Back in 2005, when I wanted to buy first real hifi system, I made months of search and fall in love with this arm. At that time I couldn’t even think of owning one, but as years passed I go deeper in this hobby and at last I have one.   This arm is the physical state of pure engineering. Some one can argue that there are better arms, and in fact there may be. But Series V will always be a true classic.   [nrelate-related]   The functioning of a...

Coincident Super Eclipse Mk. 3 Speakers

If there is only one magician in this hobby, that is definitely Israel Blume. Very few manufacturers produces such a wide range of products with this success. Although he started business with speakers, now he is producing pre-amplifiers, power amplifiers, step-up transformers and cables.   Many people chooses speakers first, and then choose the best amplifier who can drive the speaker. In that approach choosing the speaker is priority. But I believe in another approach: Choosing the...

Room: The Good, The Better and The Sweety

Originally my room setup was different and the title was The Bad, The Worse and The Ugly. The room has not changed but I made some arrangements to make a better placement of the rack, and some acoustic regulations. Now I made a new placement keeping the Hi-Fi on mind.   [nrelate-related]   The Good:  This is my main living room, but I designed it to serve me a listening room as well. Formerly my system was not symmetrically placed in the room. But now I moved the speakers to the...

Room: The Bad, The Worse and The Ugly

Like many audiophiles I also had a dilemma when it comes to listening room. Since I don’t have a separate listening room I have to use my main living room as a listening room. So I designed the room other parameters than “acoustics.” Thats why I had problems it the room design. Here they are: The Bad: Hi-fi system is not symmetrically placed in the room. Right speaker is quiet close to side wall; while there is a big opening in the left side of the left speaker. And the speakers are...

Counterpoint SA-5.1 Pre Amplifier

Preamplifier is the core of the system and in my belief must be chosen more meticulously than other components. It is your Conductor at your home orchestra, he will manage other components; so your music tastes must match. In that sense I can say that I truly love Counterpoint sound. Neither warm nor pure clear. So pre-amplifier choice was easy for me. [nrelate-related] This unit was built in the era when lp’s still were the most popular source for music. And in that era, commercial products...

Equipments Which are Ready

Great Reef had a loong planning phase. I believe that my project benefited very much during this phase, and I even discover more benefits, while shifting the setup phase. Almost all of my equipment has been bought during the long planning phase. Lets have a look on them. First come to my mind is the IKS Aquastar controller and its modules etc. IKS is a German manufacturer and its’ Aquastar line is simply amazing. Modern life doesn’t permit me to devote frequent and planned time to...

Look What I have Found

I usually use vintage or old fashioned gadgets in my home and hobbies. My camera is an analog one which nobody uses anymore; in my hi-fi system consists of tube amplifiers which are ignored by technology-lovers; I still use turntables and the list goes on. But there is no need to reject the technology. It is a good think when you have the control over it. I was looking for a audio recorder to use in my cello studies. When talking about this a friend mentioned about this device and even more...

Importance of a Teacher

Bu tarafından 7 Şub 2012 bölümünde yayınlandı. 0 yorum

For an adult starter the sole most important thing is the teacher. Some beginners tend to ignore this fact and believe that they can give a try without one. Well, let me say this: Learning a cello is not similar to learning to drive. You can not notice the errors you make immediately, and by time that errors will be your true. And when finally you notice it, the amount of effort to fix it will be several times as much.   So, if you are a beginner stop searching the cellos in your price...

I Found the Aquarium

Since I couldn’t built the aquarium which I planned for the Great Reef for a couple of reasons, I changed my direction to find the best possible second hand aquarium. After for a long search I located one which has dimensions good enough in my city. Its’ dimensions were 135 cm * 80 cm 50 cm (h) in metric and 53″ * 32″ * 20″ (h) in US Customary units. My original plans were a 160 cm * 80 cm * 70 cm aquarium, but as I said this aquarium is quite close. What I loose...

Learning Cello

After years my friends get used to fact that spending my time to different hobbies. But even the ones most familiar to this situation, stop for a minute and ask ” Hey, you mean cello?” when they heard I started learning Cello.   The only thing I know is, since my youth I was eager to play a musical instrument. I feel that this is kind of magic. Think, playing some melodies by looking to some figures on piece of paper. This is like a man who can’t read, emulating on other...
