  1. After 5 years from the time I acquired the PCBs and parts, I finally took advantage of the free time created by the pandemic and completed my KGSSHV. This is the offboard version with +/-500V supply. I know many have since moved on to the Carbon but I am very happy with the results and plan on building myself a Carbon in the near future. Hopefully it won't take me that long this time. Thanks to Kevin for the great design, Spritzer for his support and providing some of the parts and this thread from which I learned a lot. The case is from Aliexpress but I got a new front panel made

  2. Yesterday - hung out with the local riff raff. Given the size, likely a male. He hung around in that tree for a couple hours before moving on. Was pretty impressive to see.

  6. What the heck.... But to interrupt the trend.....Karen and I decided last minute to go up to Maine condo today, and was well worth it with a visit to a trail in Biddeford. Near a golf course and Goose Rocks Beach, it's part of an Audubon Sanctuary.

  10. finished today my cfa2, was a trouble free build beside that i like small case (think is a tetris disorder i caught in my teenage years ;-). once again, these trafo covers look nice but the shielding effect is near zero, to get ride of a small hum i needed to add some grain oriented bands. heatsinkt of the case seems a bit overdesingned, gets only a bit warm. offset without servos was surprising low at around 10-15mv, could use nice matched mje15030/15031 from my previous dynahi project. the amps sounds very nice, one of the few amps that are neural and speedy that i like, really a "

  11. Got the re-tipped Zu DL-103 back yesterday. Today I mounted the cartridge, set the tracking force, aligned the cartridge and set azimuth and VTA. The custom belt is due on Tuesday, so I'll check the sound then. My last pieces of wood for the new stand shipped today. should be here soon. It's all coming together.

  15. Yes, in that case we have been in production since last year and have crossed over a hundred units in the production mark. It's not a lot but, this is passion not a business. In terms of refinement, refinement to minor fixes have been done. As @JoaMat had pointed out last year regarding the connections, now it is a fully soldered connection from the earlier screw down one. This solved majority of the issues we had in the early units. Then upon Spritzer and Wachara's recommendations since last year, the drivers have 2-stage dust protection and go through vigorous anechoic chamber te

  24. Well, our covid Thanksgiving day is limited to me, Claire, Alden and Steve. The meal we thought was going to be more streamlined has taken two days of cooking and baking, and we're not done yet. Here's the allegedly shorter menu: Orange-ginger cranberry sauce Meeso-Horny, I mean Miso-honey roasted Brussel sprouts Sausage-fennel stuffing Sweet potatoes TBD by The TICE Brined roast turkey Giblet gravy Turkey-bacon-swiss burgers for Alden who doesn't like any of the Thanksgiving menu except dessert Pecan pie Apple tarte tatin (inclufed because Alden

  25. So I shifted the Teac into the main headphone system in place of the NAD M51: So now I can use my Two Little Bears (Passive XLR switchers) to shift between the Mytek or Teac as input and the GS-X, DHSA or BHse as output:

  30. Headed up to Maine today, it's a Partridge-Family-like sunshiney day! We were getting ready for lunch when we heard the good news on Biden. The celebratory lunch was with a nice view of the water and bridge to Kennebunkport, then on the way to our condo we encountered the obvious. No wonder we see a fair bit of Trump signs....

  31. I finished my first SRX+ build yesterday. It is overall quite satisfying. It doesn't have the breathtaking bass or unforgiving resolution of KGSSHV Carbon, but is rather non-fatiguing for long-term listening. I took the SRX+ Gerber file Kevin created (Thanks, Kevin!), added larger footprints in order to use the cheaper tube sockets, TO-92 footprints for the DN2540s and moved the heater-lift resistor dividers to the amp board so the wiring between this and the PSU board can be more streamlined. I also changed the small tubes to use 6.3V heater in order to match the surplus power tran

  35. Speaking of Walkman,.. I've started watching The Crown season 4 and a scene with Dianna in Buckingham Palace rollerskating listening to her Walkman really brought back some personal memories of those times. My ex-wife Gael worked at a coffeehouse and she'd skate with Elvis Costello on her Walkman in the parking lot after closing. She too was achingly beautiful and it was a pleasure to just stand there and watch!

  37. I had another vocal lesson today. It didn't go well (mostly because I was too busy following the election results to think about anything else), but she's so positive and encouraging, that it was still an excellent lesson. I am now more motivated than ever to practice every day.

  40. All of those delicious posts from Nate and Stretch have made me jealous so I took a 2.5 kilo brisket and did a quick 8.5 hour roast. We shall see if it is tender yet. At least the Booker wine is setting the stage for something epic.

  42. Back at it today w/ [2] 5lb brisket flats and a small amount of point I trimmed off one (for burnt ends). It's cold here (36F) so it'll be interesting to see how much fuel the Traeger burns and how things come up to temp. Started things off at 190F, will push up to 225F when the meat hits ~120F, naturally in Super Smoke mode the entire time. Then it'll be the wait-and-see watch for the stall process which is where the Fireboard really earns its keep.
