Tube Amplifier by Case-Real for Elekit

Japanese designer Koichi Futatsumata, founder of Case-Real studio, has designed a vacuum tube amplifier for electronics manufacturer Elekit. Elekit traditionally manufacture affordable, high-end audio equipment in kit form. Fatsumata was commissioned to design an amplifier that would be sold ready-assembled to appeal to a younger generation. The prototype shown largely follows the established typology of tube amplifiers but the circuitry and mechanical parts that are usually left exposed to aid cooling are hidden inside the steel casing. Instead, the aluminium top from which the vacuum tubes protrude acts as a heat-sink to dissipate heat from the components. 

All the controls have been integrated into two front-mounted aluminium dials. ELEKIT TUBE AMPLIFIERby Koichi Futatsumata / CASE-REAL. Design of a new generation vacuum tube amplifier for EK Japan Co., Ltd.(Fukuoka, Japan) who develops numerous electronic kits/ gadgets targeted at both children and adults. Traditionally, the types of assembly audio kits EK JAPAN has developed have been largely for audio or mechanical maniacs, for an affordable price, thereby serving their quality of life by way of spending time to assemble and then to enjoy the audio from what they have made. The direction of a project commissioned to us this time was completely different and was to design a compact, stylish vacuum tube audio consonant with the life style of young generations novice about vacuum tube but are naively interested in the charm and atmosphere created from/ via a vacuum tube amplifier. 

The prototype, as shown in the photo, is an embodiment of the concept which symbolically gives an accent on vacuum tubes on the top, supported by aluminum dials on the front integrating all controls thereinto and by the sides made of cast steel. So that a vacuum tube light stands out, the mechanical structure and parts are kept inside and the top aluminum plate functions as a heat sink instead.The circuitry a hybrid configuration, and, on the right side is a mini- jack for portable music players like iPod.

Speedcast strikes US$135M buyout of US-based infrastructure provider

Speedcast International has entered into an agreement to acquire US-based remote communications and multi-network infrastructure provider for US$135 million. The Australian-listed satellite telecommunications service provider told shareholders on 28 August the acquisition is set to strengthen Speedcast’s global competitive position in government, maritime and enterprise sectors. Speedcast will acquire the business from affiliates of HPS Investment Partners, LLC Tennenbaum Capital Partners, LLC and certain other members of Globecomm. Globecomm Systems is present in 100 countries, and estimates US$15 million in annual cost synergies within 18 months after the acquisition. Specifically, the acquisition will be funded by a fully underwritten US$175 million add-onto Speedcast’s existing seven‐year senior secured credit facility from the US institutional term loan market, which will also be used to repay a portion of Speedcast’s revolving credit facility and thus enhance Speedcast’s liquidity position. 

The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2018, subject to the completion of customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.

The Art of Food :: MGNSW

Imagine if we paired food with art in the same way sommeliers pair wine with cuisines. While this may seem implausible and over-engineered, a new openness for food culture to be part of galleries and museums is driving increasing co-location of art, culture and food. From the humble coffee cart to boutique dining experiences, food culture is playing a growing role in our cultural spaces. Whether it’s a match made in heaven or a relationship of convenience, the combination of art and food culture provides new opportunities for visitor experiences. David Walsh’s Museum of Old and New Art exemplifies the high-end companionship between art and culinary experience with wine bars, restaurants and cafes servicing the gallery space. 

Thriving cafes adjoining gallery spaces are found at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre, Tweed Regional Gallery, Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Art Centre, Campbelltown Arts Centre and the Penrith Regional Gallery to name a few. Despite the many success stories the art and food partnership is not necessarily an instant fast track to increasing gallery and museum patronage. Sydney Living Museum’s Rouse Hill House and Farm, 45km northwest of the Sydney CBD, recently held their Autumn Harvest festival which exemplifies thoughtful integration of the cultural and food experience. That said, the food and art alliance is not without its detractors. Concerns about gallery and museum spaces being overshadowed by food and café outlets and consequently detracting from those institutions as venues for creative engagement and collaboration, have been voiced. 

These concerns appear insignificant when weighed against the potential for food and café culture to normalise regular gallery visits and engagement, opening up a future where coffee with friends at the gallery, and a walk past the new exhibit is an everyday occurrence. Meet Paula Perugini Kelly ; Gallery professional, art educator and culture enthusiast.

Glenn Barkley, Curator, Objects in Space: Artists in the Garden :: MGNSW

We recently travelled out to the Peacock Gallery & Auburn Arts Studio situated in Auburn’s Botanical Gardens and spoke with Glenn Barkley the curator of the exhibition Objects in Space: Artists in the Garden. The great English landscape designer Russell Page described Japanese gardens as a demonstration of ‘the relationship between objects in space. Using this as a cue Objects in Space: Artists in the Garden considers the influence of both ‘the garden’ and Japanese aesthetics on contemporary art forms. It explores the botanical as a source of inspiration to makers and the ongoing Anglo-Japanese tradition that underpin much contemporary craft with a particular emphasis on ceramics. Spread across the garden itself and into the Peacock gallery the show turns on the relationships between the inside and outside bring the garden into the gallery space and the gallery space in to the garden. 

Lastly it considers the garden as an object in itself and asks audiences to consider the relationships between plants – foliage, flower, texture and shape – and sculptural incursions into the garden as a way of articulating form, time and space. The exhibition leads into spring and the gardens brief cherry blossom flowering – an occasion celebrated via the extremely popular ‘Sydney Cherry Blossom Festival’. Enthusiasts of both contemporary art and traditional gardens will enjoy exploring the rich, subtle and detailed works on show at Peacock Gallery and in Auburn’s Japanese Gardens – themselves a symbol of goodwill and peaceful contemplation within Sydney’s busy urban and multi-cultural environs.

True Property

Here are some things you will need to think about, once you have decided to sell your property. For residential property the law requires that a draft contract be prepared before the property can be offered for sale. A survey will show the boundaries and where the improvements are situated on the property. If you dont owe any money on your property you may hold the title deeds. If you have a mortgage on the property, your mortgagee will probably hold the deeds and will continue to hold on to them until the property is sold. 

Most people choose to use a real estate agent to sell their property. Is the agent is active in your area, selling similar properties to yours. It involves listing your property for sale at a specific price. Sale by auction is where buyers compete for the purchase of a property by making successive bids, the property being sold to the highest bidder once the reserve price has been reached. It involves putting the property on the market at an unspecified price and calling for the submission of offers prior to a certain future date. 

All offers are then considered, one of which may be accepted and the property is regarded as sold. Make the property welcoming – light and airy in the summer and bright and cosy in the winter.

Hvilken TV skal du kjøpe?

Det er ikke bare navnet på de ulike typene TV-panel som kan skape forvirring. Teknologiene som produsentene putter i TV-ene sine er gjerne forkortelser, og det kan virke uklart hva de betyr. Her kommer en forklaring på hva 4K/UHD, Ambilight og HDR betyr. 4K og UHD. 4K og UHD er to begreper som nærmest har blitt synonymer. 4K er opprinnelig en profesjonell produksjon- og kinostandard, mens UHD er en skjerm- og kringkastingsstandard som henvender seg til kunder. 4K er pikselforholdet 4096×2160, hvor antallet vertikale piksler er drøyt 4000. Ultra High Definition er nivået over Full HD med en oppløsning på 3840×2160. Dette er ikke nøyaktig det samme som 4K, men likevel er tilnærmet alle TV-er som er oppgitt som 4K egentlig UHD. 

UHD handler om skjermens oppløsning. Jo høyere oppløsning TV-en har jo skarpere, klarere og mer virkelighetstro blir bildet. Dette er særlig viktig for store TV-er hvor det blir ekstra tydelig hvor god oppløsningen er. Samtidig er det viktig merke seg at selv om TV-en har UHD-oppløsning, blir ikke bildet bedre enn oppløsningen på innholdet du vil se på. Foreløpig er utvalget av innhold i 4K forholdsvis lavt, men blir stadig større.

Where can I find Kiwi Berries?

I had picked up some Kiwi Berries for $1 a pack at T&T supermarket recently. They were the size of a cherry tomato and tasted like a sweeter kiwi. I’ve since only found them at Concorde supermarket on Centre St for $4 I think. Has anyone found a good source of these for a little less then $4 so that I can stock up?
