They tweaked the large sprague caps and the small ones too much for the scene. but it’s still good to see my favorite sprague capacitors on a movie. aren’t they orange back in the days? 

this board is Apple-1 from this movie Jobs from 2013

btw, I wanted to capture the scenes. and it didn’t work with Safari browser. this helped me out. you can capture the screenshot while it’s playing on chrome. it didn’t work while posed.

Why It’s Rare; original Apple-1 computer up for auction

and noticed the small electrolytic caps are Philips. I have some here for my amps.

I’m actually not sure if the small caps are Philips. I see the black line on the positive side and don’t see it on mine

I wonder how many of these first Apple computers are still lying around in somebody’s basement. Already the Apple II fetches some high prices: https://www.ebay.de/itm/UNIQUE-COMBO-2-2-Multiple-truly-unique-Apple-Computer-items-incl-an-Apple-II/173795669544?hash=item2877077628:g:Ha0AAOSwuQhb~hBT

the first computer I saw was Apple II at a friend’s place in the early 80’s. didn’t have any interest in it at the time. but the listing on ebay still brings me the memory

Before they’ve started to sell those home computers with Win3.0 or Win95 here in Germany, a lot of people owned Apple machines but now they are hard to find here. Not because these computers are rare but rather people just threw them away.

figured out how to read the date code on the sprague caps.

http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/date-code-for-sprague-atom-electrolytic-capacitor.783610/

the caps from the movie have 1080H and 1019H codes on them. they came from 18th and 19th week of 2010.

I see 7613L on the original Apple-1 board. 13th week of 1976.

 

they put the fresh sprague caps on the board at ’76

Did watch the movie with Ashton Kutcher and was totally disappointed. How he has portrayed Jobs was way too much faked. Just my opinion.

it was on Netflix and didn’t think about the movie that much. I don’t have any interest in someone’s life nor a movie about it.

  • en enjoying 5751 tube on 5D3 v1

  • a member here recommended me 5751 for tweed deluxe v1 socket. and I’m impressed with this setup. I grabbed this off ebay for $32 even the kind seller sent me an extra GE 5751.

    I’d say it’s way better than stock 12ay7 and 12at7 on v1.

    and 5751 on 5F1 reduces the output volume a bit. but still a good sounding tube

  • en DNA: Life’s Changelog

  • One of the most interesting things about DNA is that we have discovered, in humans, the 3% of the code which builds our physical bodies also has encoded within the bodies of all of our ancestors. We can switch on these old systems (in animals of course since this would be highly unethical to do to human beings) and give a chicken teeth or scales. We are not just us. We are all the physical forms in our lineage.

    Now, that accounts for 3% of our storage. What of the other 97%? It is memories. Now the skeptic will go “yeah right Mr. Science”. Hear me out here though. Why is it so hard to accept memories encoded into the helix? In fact all “instinct” is encoded memory. What beach to lay your eggs by the light of the full moon if you are a tortoise. Where to migrate if you are a starling or a monarch butterfly. Sharks even have maps of the magnetic markers on the seafloor. None of this is learned. It is there at birth.

    There is a very good evolutionary reason for this. Rapid adaptation. We have a repository of past experiences so we do not have to reinvent the wheel every time our environment changes. Human beings have noted this for at least as long as we have records and this has given rise to theories of reincarnation which appeared in nearly every civilization on Earth. Science has resisted this because it sounds too “supernatural” in the same way they resisted the “Big Bang” because it sounded too much like creation. Yet, it is anything but supernatural. It is entirely natural and the only explanation which makes any sense.

  • en 40’s Ken-Rad 6v6GT/G is louder than RCA, GE, Sylvania 6v6GT

  • while my 5F1 project is not loud enough with Jensen 10J11 speaker, I tried a few different 6v6 tubes for the last few days.

    I noticed Ken-Rad 6v6GT/G tubes are louder than the other tubes. and the texture with this tube is acoustic and strong. 

    I don’t see the difference between RCA, GE, and Sylvania 6v6gt tubes that much. GE Canada 6v6GT is a bit brighter than 50’s stock tweed RCA and 60’s Sylvania but, Ken-Rad 6v6GT/G sounds way different to them

  • en NOS Astron Blue point aka. yellow mustard capacitors

  • they were on ebay and the price was not bad. it was pretty good actually. these .02uf 600v 50’s Astron Blue point capacitors are for my original and project 5F1 champ amps. two of them for the 5F1 project. and the rest of them for the original ’59 5F1 champ in a case I need to replace them like 50 years from now.

  • en Sprague 16uf 475v fits perfect to Astron vintage paper sleeve

  • 5y3 rectifier tube in my 5F1 tweed champ went dead a month ago. and everything was fine after I put a new 5y3 tube.

    then, the same thing happened today. I figured out this 16uf 450V Astron minimite filter cap was the problem.

     

    Sprague 16uf 475v fits Astron Minimite 16uf 450V paper sleeve. my champ sounds firm and clear than ever with this new cap.

    You need to strip off the blue shrink cover to put it in the paper sleeve as you can see

     

     

     

     

    Sadly, I’ve lost 2 of these 5y3 tubes from this issue. but still good with the better sounding from this small tweed amp.

  • en gathering information on vintage tweed champ output transformer

  • while I’m working on a tweed champ 5f1 replica with 10″ speaker, I recall they say the output transformers affect the tone.

    and, I noticed I never saw the back side of champ chassis before. it’s where I start finding a vintage OT for my project
