No worries.Capacitors, connectors and sealed components at 800-900v exposed to shakedown 50+ yrs exceeds my wildest experience. 1956 Hammond B3 just sounded better, raspier older its caps. But hotrodding with new caps took latest capacitor technology to new sonic heights for the olde girl. New technology at pace its innovating I expect to replace at very minimum caps maybe as soon as first sparkplugs change.
Inverter expect upgrades for the eager early adopters of latest and greatest.
Connectors are evil. Shit happens. Expect Tesla’s are great. Not surprised if I repace them in salty environs.
Sealed components bake in heat. Great lid technology abates failover but expect those sealed component black boxes to fail, falter and fluster.
Great compendium speaks for all my expectations to the letter! Thx
I think I said 10-15 years for capacitors though, not 50.
As for the connectors, those Din connectors are pretty spiffy nowadays with seals, locking mechanisms and contact coatings. Theres also not many anymore on teslas, and I'm hoping CT will finally get the 1 wire power bus tech to reduce wiring and connectors even further.
And there might be some better inverter tech at some point, but we're quickly approaching the maximum efficiencies of these systems, so what upgrades actually need to physically change in the inverter still? Many drivetrain upgrades will probably just be OTA software updates.
Hammond organs were a bit before I started keyboard. My first was digital in the 80's with a Yamaha DX 7. Then Korg M1, grand etc. Nowadays its just all software simulated audio plug-ins on a DAW running on a PC... How things have changed, pretty awesome what can be done at home now. My wife and daughters sing and play, wife actually done some movie soundtracks etc, my oldest son is into beat boxing which is testing for me to say the least. He's actually good at it, and has his own studio setup in his room, (family has a commercial one too, mum used to do opera) but his constant practising to find sounds around the house is borderline sonic torture. He does live looping with singing as well. I still like running my valve amp on ESL monitors off a deck though to drown out everyone who seem to all carry their own tunes during the day. We have space at least which is good for our neighbours 4km away, seeing even our German Shepard's like singing with when we play...
