This has really gotten off topic, so a few comments about power supplies, strippers, and audio reviewers:

On power supplies, the question is what happens when they reach their limits? With a linear supply you will eventually get voltage sag and no more power can be supplied. This is a nice way to reach the limits, not something you can say for a switching supply. With this in mind there is nothing wrong with a switching supply as long as it is big enough to never hit its limits no matter the demand from the dynamics of the source. That will be one very large switching power supply.

Mojo, if you are going to get new strippers at least get a good looking pair.

On audio reviews, I think Craig has hit the nail on the head. Whatever test you do sighted you can do blind, it just involves a lot more effort. I would venture to say the effort is not the problem though, it is more likely the self-destruction of connoisseur status.

Right ... the problem is that most off the shelf switchers protect them selfs by going into short circuit protection when their limit is reached ... but really for audio they should current limit ... with this change and some very large caps and you'd have the best of both worlds.

It's like a cordless phone but keeps working when the power is out.

I was reminded of this today when Hydro One cut the power off in our area for 6 hours to perform some kind of upgrade.
