Computerized battery analyzer
CBAIII: Unlike a simple load tester, the CBA will test virtually any type or size of battery, any chemistry, any number of cells up to 55V. It is capable of higher test rates: up to 40 amps or 150W, whichever is higher. It not only tests the total amount of energy stored in a battery (capacity in amp-hrs), but it graphically displays and charts voltage versus amp-hours. It has an electronic constant current load controlled both with software and electronics. Graphs may be displayed, saved and printed. Multiple graphs of the same battery, or multiple batteries, may be compared or overlaid. Test labels can be printed and placed directly on batteries to remind users of the last time they were tested and how they performed.
Linear headphone amplifier
Lehmann Black Cube: Linear Audio's Black Cube Linear headphone amplifier has a frequency response extending from 10Hz (-0.3dB) to 35kHz (-1dB). The signal-to-noise ratio is better than 95dB at 0dB gain, with greater than 70dB channel separation at 10kHz. Total harmonic distortion is less than 0.001 percent at 6mW and 300 ohms. Selectable gain (0, 10 or 20dB) effectively optimizes the output level of the zero global feedback Class A output stage.
