RetroTech: Sony Flamingo PS-F9 Repair & Demo
Sony’s portable battery-powered turntable from 1983 has become a highly desired and expensive collectors piece. However before I can demonstrate this one, I’ll need to get it working.

Sony Global Design History Pages

Ebay (well it doesn’t cost anything to look)

UPDATE: After uploading the video, it occurred to to that Sony have in fact revisited their back catalogue recently with the re-launch of the Aibo robotic dog. Hopefully this will continue and we’ll get to see some more modern reinterpretations of classic Sony products.

OMISSION: I forgot to mention that I pulled out any remnants of the old felt washer that was protruding from between the cogs before installing my replacement cloth tape.
Also perhaps I should have clarified that the gears unit was welded on at both ends, there were no retaining washers or e-clips that could be removed to disassemble it.

Lots of people want me to say the word *Clutch* to describe the gears mechanism as if somehow this will fill a void…so here we go
I suspect nothing has changed.

There’s also a fan website dedicated to the Sony PS-F5 that has some additional information –

A few people think the Sound Crocodile drawing shown on the advert for the Sound Burger is a real thing (?!????!!!?) – It’s not, here’s a picture of the full advert

The bicolour records used for the demonstrations were:
1) Stax Number Ones (Yellow & Red)
2) Lou Reed – Transformer (Black & Yellow)
These were limited editions from
Both are now discontinued – however they have plenty of other exclusive coloured discs to choose from.

La Bala – Pierangelo Bertoli – Eppuere soffia (1976) – 03
(testo di Pierangelo Bertoli / musica di Alfonso Borghi)

Perché vot gnirm a dir che ten’er menga tè
ormai i al san già tot ch’et ve seimper con quel lé
at tto vesta anca me
ma te et cuntenua dir che ten’er menga tè
e che la geint la perla perché l’an sa csa fer
perché l’an sa csa fer

Tem vo dir cle una bala
ch’im han cunte una bala
tem vo dir cle una bala
cle propria una bala
ma me la me bala a la ciap con dal vein.

A me amn’inporta gnint se te durant al de
tvo ander a fer l’amour con quel ch’et per a te
csa vot c’minporta a me
ma an gnirem menga a dir che ten’er menga te
perché tal se che el bale em piesen gnianch un po’
em piesen gnianch un po’ e po’
po’ ai count mei me che te.

Tem vo dir cle una bala
ch’im han cunte una bala
tem vo dir cle una bala
cle propria una bala
ma me la me bala a la ciap con dal vein

Living, Breathing, & Betting on Bitcoin | Outliers Ep. 2
Odds are that you’ve been hearing more and more about cryptocurrency as digital tokens like bitcoin and ethereum have become valuable commodities. Converts (and investors) say that cryptocurrencies built on blockchain technology represent the future of money, finance, and commerce. But skeptics say that digital currencies represent crowd-sourced pyramid schemes or are fuel for another tech bubble.

We met with Olaf Carlson-Wee, who was the first employee at the cryptocurrency broker Coinbase, where he famously took his entire salary in bitcoin. Now, Carlson-Wee runs a hedge fund that deals exclusively in crypto-assets. We talked with Carlson-Wee in San Francisco about money, trust, and how he made his friends rich.
