  • Moody Blues - Ray Thomas

    My youngest son wanted a turntable an amp and a pair of Grado SR80 headphones for Christmas. I got him set up, gave a tutorial on how to handle records and let him explore my collection. He took a liking to the Moody Blues.

    Yesterday we stopped by Trax On Wax in Catonsville where he bought a Moody Blues album. They really produced some great music. Today we read in the news that Ray Thomas, one of the founding members, passed away, just months before they are to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. :'(

    Some folks like to parallel ('bypass') large caps with two smaller value caps -- the notion is to have low ESR across a wide bandwidth. It's one of those things that shouldn't hurt -- and it certainly helps keep the capacitor companies profitable, which helps keep 'em in business, which is good for all of us!

    Go 2 10s in parallel. The 18 and 2 will not sound right. Trust me, I've tried this.

    That is my problem. I buy stuff that needs fixin', I fix but then I don't sell and it piles up in my basement. It drives my wife nuts.

Howdy, Stranger!
