NOTE FROM SOL
Dear Fellow DAKonians,
So how big is a micron?
Is 2.4GHz really superior to 900MHz for video and/or audio transmission? What's
the difference between a point,
pica, pixel and an inch?
Well if you're like me you're
as interested in how and why a product or technology works as what it actually
does. And, of course, the most important thing about any product isn't even what
it does, but what it will do for you.
Unfortunately, we all have
both limited time and limited resources, so in our fast-paced world we have to
make every decision with care.
Enter DAK 2000. We
are a different place to visit. You know, I just read on somebody else's website
that, "As our catalogs and product descriptions include all of the information
available to us, our website and our telephone representatives do not have any
additional information about our products."
Well it's not like that
at DAK 2000. I will devote as much space and depth to my technical descriptions
as is needed to convey exactly what a product or technology will do for us and
more importantly, exactly what it will not!
And that's not all. If you
don't get an answer you like, use our FREE 'eMail an engineer' to ask your
All this is just a taste of what being a DAKonian is all about. I'm trying to
do things here that can't be tried in a physical store or catalog.
When was the last time you
could 'talk' to an actual engineer, not a salesperson or a customer service operator?
I'm testing web-centric ways to get you more information faster and in more interesting
ways. Plus, this site is should be very useful and lots of fun too.
There's a lot more than products
at DAK.com. Check out all our electronic tutorials. Take some of our fun and challenging
electronic quizzes. We'll all learn a ton and have a ton of fun was we explore
the latest in electronic innovations and how to make them work best for each of
us. There are links to both the tutorials and quizzes at the top of the page.
But, you'd expect all that.
It's the unexpected, the extra effort we expend and the extra things that DAK.com
offers that if you've never acquired a product from me in the past, are bound
to surprise you and hopefully delight you.
Over 40 years and still excited. You know in 1964 when Drew founded DAK
1, he was the ultimate audio tweak with 9 tape decks (long before the audiocassette).
In '85 he introduced a 300 baud modem phone for contacting electronic bulletin
DAK 2000.com, Inc.
In '86, he introduced and
explained one of the first 8088, 128K PC clones. (Want
to see the ad? It's 112K.) In '88 he was the first electronic breadmaker and
in '91, he was one of the first to introduce and explain CD ROM drives to America.
Fast forward to late 2012, and I got to take over for Drew, who decided it was time to retire and spend his days SCUBA diving. Just like he, I get a kick from finding new audio and electronic discoveries that just make life a little more efficient, fun and exciting (especially with regards to music!), and I hope you do too.
So far, I've intro'ed the Forbidden Song Grabber (a great solution to the "No Stereo Mix Problem" on many newer computers), and I'm only just getting started.
