Staying on topic

Recommended Posts

Is there any desire by the collected here to develop a norm of staying on topic and to self govern when people go off topic?

I haven't found any desire to people to stay on topic.

The only forums that I've seen stay on topic have very different moderation than this one. The OP can do this here to a certain extent, but then members might kill and eat him to gain his power.

I grind up organic Bubinga wood audio equipment cases and then add some ground metal from golf putters for the essential nutrients.


"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

I get it, 'the group' does not want to stay on topic.

 

Thank you for responding. 

 

I was willing to try because of the experience I have related my other hobby. I race a Porsche in SCCA and the related websites, of SCCA, PCA, and Pelican Parts, provide thousands of threads related to car preparation and maintenance...all self governing related to staying very much on topic. When I need information, I get it from engineers and racers without having to read through everyone's MM.

The problem was that you posted a very specific query , where very few members would have had direct experience with.

 

I still believe that for the Audio side at least, that you should consider the possibility of using direct battery power without conversion to A.C. if at all possible. You would need to get some custom built gear though.

This would also ensure that in a mains outage that you would still have DC power for at least lighting and a few other areas instead of not being able to use solar power during the length of the outage.

This assumes that you are legally forced to connect to the A.C. mains supply though, in order to inject surplus requirements back into the Grid ?

Alex, what could be hot these days (at least it would be my very subject) is that the battery will supply you 240V (48V actually) for 2days, and that when it is cloudy on top of it.

This is not so much about "custom built gear", although I am considering that. These systems just exist but are not common in general circles (in solar power circles there are more common by now).

 

Of course I don't use a roof for a couple of solar panels. It requires "terrain".
