I have yet to find an exception to this rule.

Tedco Electronics in Melbourne proudly keeps this monster ready for use. It’s a very satisfying sort of blue and will help you diagnose your thermionic valves.
It’s probably about as effective.

A) disassemble the player and resolder these cracked solder joints below the affected buttons
B) instruct DJ(s) to not pound the buttons
C) if B is ineffective, pound on DJ until it is
Shown here : dn-s1000, play button is in the far corner. I’ve seen the same problem on most Denons and a couple of Stantons.
When I originally posted this, my phone autocorrected “Denon” to “Demon”. Boy, when these solder joints go bad… you’ll think there IS a demon in your CD player, bent on ruining your DJ sets… 😀
Say what you will about the American diet as it stands today — at least we don’t have this around anymore. See, food was disturbing as hell in the 70s.
Just ask Betty Crocker.
Onwards to the disturbing gelatinous “Meat” In A Can:
Thanks to x-ray delta one on flickr, who has this beautiful set of Regrettable Food pics…..!!
I guess the smile balloons are for when you pass
I’ve always had a soft spot for the way Icom designs their mobile ham rigs. See, someone at Icom realized that hams are ridiculously longwinded and will overheat many commercial grade radios made for the typical 5/5/90 duty cycle (5% TX, 5% RX, 90% standby) easily… so they designed most of their radios with giant passive heatsinks integral with the exterior chassis of the radio. On some of their radios there is a small cooling fan at the back that pushes a little more airflow over the chassis if needed. I used to have an old IC-229H which just had a huge passive heatsink at the back, and there’s an IC-2100H in my parents’ car that just does the whole case/heatsink thing for cooling.
Unfortunately someone, in the process of building an Echolink node around an IC-V8000, thought they needed a bit more cooling and then this happened…
