985chicago is on a distinguished road
Default Voodoo Audio

Greetings from Chicago.
When DX. is on listen for me on 27.385 LSB.
I go by 985. My main radio is a highly modified 6k Kenwood TS950VMSDX.
If your interested in ESSB audio see this web site for great info.
WZ5Q Hi-Fi ESSB Amateur Radio Station with VooDoo Audio
I use 10+ pieces of rack gear to produce the very best audio quality possible.
I use a very rare tube microphone from TSM Muneo to get that real deep sound.I also use a Eventide harmonizer to lower my pitch.
Lot's of tweekin !
If you have any questions about HIfi audio just give me a shout.

I like the work you did comparing the Heil PR-40 and the Electrovoice RE-20. Very good stuff

Feel free to start some threads in other parts of the forum to "show off" some of your work and also discuss what you've learned about how to produce great sounding HiFi ESSB I'd like to learn more about your setup!

You were definitely sounding good up here in Washington State last weekend! Hopefully the east/west dx will roll back in again soon and we can do it again!

Great stuff. I'm running TS870 with Behringer rack and B1 microphone. Broadcast modulation. I always enjoying QSO's with people just stopping by to ask "wow, what you got here that you sound that way"

The Kenwood TS870 with a good quality microphone like you have is a great start. IMOP. Maybe the best SSB " out of the Box " ham radio ever made.
Your Kenwood can receive from 0 to 6000 kHz. As you know ,most other radios are limited from 100 Hz to 2600kHz at best. Even though most of the human voice is between 100 and 2000khz there is so much more to accent to create that wonderful sound. With the right equipment you can open up your receive and transmit to another part of this great hobby that I also enjoy.
I love to hear that 6K wide audio. It rumbles the headphones !!!: when done right. Voodoo Bling.jpg

ESSB totally defeats the purpose of using a narrow band mode like SSB,what is the point of it,if your going to take up that much bandwidth on TX and let that much through on RX why not just use AM or FM?

SSB was designed to narrow the bandwidth in the receiver to improve the signal to noise ratio at the cost of some audio fidelity,all you are doing is reverse engineering it.Pointless.

If you want real deep bass on RX plug in a subwoofer.
