You have encountered an example of what my friend Bill Whitlock (www.jensentransformers.com) calls "audio jewelry." It is sold to gullible "audiofools" (the mis-spelling is intentional) with a load o

First, audio cables are too short and the wavelengths of audio signals too long for transmission line behavior of audio cables to be a factor. The mfrs of exotic cables would have you believe that is

West Penn, Gepco, and Belden all make stranded twisted pair cable in the #12 - gauge range. You can also "roll your own" out of stranded THHN from Home Depot by sticking it in a twist drill. And you

Read the parts of my original post about the woofer "flopping around" if there is too much resistance between it and the power amp. It is NOT transmission line behavior at all, but it IS a simple, lu

You might want to take another look at this, Tom. I just did, looking at the circuit analysis of some of the line filters in my junkbox. It never occurred to me to try it, but I think Dave is right -

In a central office or studio, that's absolutely true. But if I'm miles of wire from the central office it isn't. I strongly agree that the filtering is a completely different ballgame if you're tryi

Common split cores are optimized for 50 MHz and us, and would not be expected to be effective at 4 MHz. Your tone sounds defensive -- it should not be. DSC is the guy with the problem, and THEY shoul

It depends on how the RF is getting in. If it is a pin 1 problem, it probably would not fix it. If it was differential mode, it probably would. To understand why, I'll review what "the pin 1 problem"

A bypass cap on the signal conductor to the chassis does not help a pin 1 problem. A bypass cap from the shield to the chassis may help, hurt, or not be enough. It would help by lowering the Z of the

Your conclusions are in agreement with mine that this is the dominant mechanism for the best behaved products. Some products may also radiate directly due to a combination of poor circuit layout and

I can't take credit for the onion analogy, but it is an excellent one. I think it might be from the late Dick Heyser, the father of Time Delay Spectrometry (TDS), whose "day job" was at Jet Propulsio
