Rumors....

Posted by jwilson56 , 18 December 2013 · 476 views

I kinda get the impression that the DIYers for home automation have slowly moved on. Many of the friends I used to chat with daily online about our projects are busy with real l...

Pioneer SC-1222K is a winner

Posted by jwilson56 , 09 March 2013 · 921 views

Well the Pioneer SC-1222K came early so I decided to swap it out. My initial thoughts Pros: 1)  The receiver runs cool to the touch even after a few hours of cranked up music and movies 2)  The Class D3  amplifiers are a clear winner for sound quality. My Polk Monitor 70's have never sounded so good. I was always less than impress...

Posted by jwilson56 , 08 March 2013 · 479 views

Well my Onkyo receiver is having sound issues. It seems that this model is having these issues and usually occurs after the 2 year warrenty is up. The repair bills are said to be in the hundreds. So it looks like I am out of luck.  I decided to purchase a Pioneer SC-1222K after reading how much trouble the new Onkyo and Denon's are. NewEgg is having...

A blast from the past - Color Organ Project

Posted by jwilson56 , 09 February 2012 · 1203 views

Well I decided it was time to take a step back from my home automation project and start one that was purely for fun. Back in the 1970's when I was in high school and college I used to design and build color organs. I always enjoyed changing the design to see how responsive I could make them. My last design was a four channel model that incorporated an...
