Check the switches too. Deoxit works great. Dirty switch contacts are the biggest cause of crackle and pop.Hehe yeah I only ment that one of those transistors possibly makes my SQ program pop and crackle, preventing me from listening to Mike comfortable in SQ. Other that that, the little SQ decoding i have actually heard between the crackle has been superb. They state a 12 db separation compared to much higher figures on QS, but to be honest I'm content and very impressed indeed.
Oh no... Had it previously... The sickness itself is bad enough, but the 3 weeks after for me was the worst part. Brain doesn't work, body doesn't work. Just a foggy mess and you're not even "sick" anymoreI have covid now....its brutal. 4 X Vaccinated, on the anti viral drug, type O blood and Dutch! I am the best case, I would hate to go through this unprotected.
First thing i did was the pot row initial thought when i heard the crackle was the pots, but no help, also it only crackles on SQ. They are really good pots though. Not a sign of scraping or anything after, what, 45 years? My Tandbergs needed a damn exorcism at age 50. Holy water and all.Check the switches too. Deoxit works great.

A friend of mine kept his credit cards in the freezer, frozen in a block of ice. That way it had to be a real emergency, he would have to wait for them to thaw out giving him time to reconsider if the purchase was warranted or not!Well, where are you supposed to keep it otherwise? Gotta keep my Mastercard chilled.
Haha yeah not gonna say I would be surprised to find my wallet in the fridge eitherThats OK, my brain is a foggy mess normally anyway
That is genious. I go for the approach of not having credit cards at all. Save up, and dump it all into 50 year old electronics and vinylA friend of mine kept his credit cards in the freezer, frozen in a block of ice.

Ordered a strip of these! Hopefully that sorts the SQ mode out. The sound has already improved dramatically after running the recapped boards for a few days. The clarity and detail is back to around where it was before I introduced the QSD-2 into the setup. I guess there may be more room for improvement in the noise department by replacing the power supply caps too.Nah, the BC549 is pin compatible and available everywhere
Chucky did post that he was vaccinated 4x. And that he is in to his 4th day of recovery. So I think you might be on to something!This is good to hear. Crossing my fingers for a speedy recovery! Are you sure it's not just the quadraphonic therapy working its magic?
When I had this problem, instead of crossing legs, I turned the transistor upside down and bent the legs around.
Good idea. I guess ot won't be a major problem anyways, since it looks like the holes are laid out in a triangle formation and not straight down. Some room to work with.When I had this problem, instead of crossing legs, I turned the transistor upside down and bent the legs around.
