Hey SawzAll! Thanks for the email and suggestions :) Now, although you have a completely different set-up, I wonder what your EQ settings may be? Also, someone who appears to know mics from an engineering perspective told me that the published frequency response curve of the V69 is not accurate and ...

Howdy VooDoo Guru :) That's a common sensical response born of your countless hours of investigation, tweaking and retweaking to be sure!! AND, I see that I'd also not quite gotten the 1 octave right either in terms how wide the bandwidth actually is :oops: The cut at 8 kHz was around 15 dB, but per...

Why/what am I hearing?? -> Need common sense (again!)

Hi y'all Audiophiles, Audioheads and VooDoo Gurus!! Now, I am somewhat puzzled by the fact that I put a serious 60/60 (1 octave) cut at 8 kHz (= > cut affecting frequencies in the 4 kHz - 12 kHz range) just for the fun of it and it made a very big difference to what my audio sounded! Audio sounded h...

Hey VooDoo Guru :)

Sure appreciate your response as always

At least they are not starving the tube for voltage then :!: :!:

Cheers,

Would this mic capsule change be unnecessary?

Hi y'all, I am using a tube (rolled the tube to a much better one as I wrote in another posting) condenser , an MXL V69 ME, and it sound pretty detailed, articulate and appears to fit my voice. It may be just a tad bright and I am striving to tame the highs by using the "de-esser" of the MDX2600 com...

Voltage on plate in tube mic?

Hi y'all AudioPhiles and VooooooDoooooo Gurus! I recently purchased an MXL V69 ME tube mic and replaced the tube with a really nice 12AT7 (below, what the seller communicated) and it did make a difference to the audio, it is now more detailed. " This 6201 / CV4024 / E81CC gold pin tubes were made by...

Monitor on the TS870S

Hi y'all AudioPhiles and VooDoo Gurus! Here's a real "strange" question for you who are using or have used the Kenwood TS870. When you listen to yourself using the Kenwood's Monitor, where do you plug in your headphones? The front jack or the jack on an external speaker for instance (provided that a...

Hey VooDoo Guru!

Howdy VooDoo Guru! Glad to see your reply here. With the mic being as important as it is would then suggest that unless I am using a VooDoo modded TS950SDX or something "close" to its performance (SDR?...., yes, I know that is software and digital :wink: ) and am transmitting wide then the benefits ...

Flattest Monitor??

Hi y'all!! I read everywhere that TS870 has a very flat receiver even at 6 kHz wide. Now, I also hear that the Monitor on the 870 is very good. Now, does that mean that the Monitor is also flat across a receive bandwidth of max 6 kHz? Is the TS950 SDX (without VooDoo mods) as flat as the 870, both w...

One tube in a sea of tubes!?

Hi y'all AudioPhiles and VooDoo Gurus! Just wondering the relative significance of having a mic that features a tube? I mean, does having just one tube in a mic sort of defeat the purpose unless ALL the other audio gear also feature tubes in it? Theoretically, one would then also have to use a 100% ...

Hi, "Cascading," OK.......that's something that I'd not thought about at all. Perhaps that is a way to add boost without making the audio sound tinny, say EQ two separate times at 5kHz and using a 15/60 or 20/60 octave bandwidth ("BW") or something...... Audio engineers talk about "feathering," but ...

Hi Mike, I appreciate the reminder, but I guess I should've formulated my original question better. Isn't it true though that regardless of which kind of rack and EQ etc. one has it is impossible to EQ frequencies in if the TX IF filtering, DSP impose a "brickwall" limit to your RF TX bandwidth? Say...

Why a tube in a (condenser) mic is a big deal?

Hi y'all AudioPhiles and VooooooDooooooo Heads! As a "reminder," I am using a TS870 and feed audio in through ACC2 on back of rig (cap mod done), use a B1 Behringer condenser mic (going to my PR40 off and on) and Behringer outboard gear. I keep reading that folks replace tubes in mics. Now, could so...

TX shift of 100Hz to 3,000Hz (MENU item #20)!

I know I probably should leave this well enough alone, but I am still puzzled as to where I need to set MENU item #20 on my TS870? Up until recently, I had the TX shift set to 0Hz-3,000Hz, but have been told that if I want to get a little wider in TX bandwidth, I need to set it to 100Hz-3,000Hz. I g...

I guess my simple mind doesn't get the 100Hz-3000Hz TX shift too as why would I first want to get rid of the 0-100Hz only to strive to EQ it back in?? :?
