  1. In progress Amp design by me, power supply designs and circuit board layout by kerry, support by birgir +/-300 volt power supplies. complementary push pull all bipolar design with cmos style multiplying current mirror.

  2. I couldn't stop listening to this yesterday I was using my SR-007's. It drives them very nicely. Very rich deep bass and good imaging / sound stage, which is usually where the 007's suffer without the proper amp. This was running this off of a bench supply at 11.1V and it was drawing .4A very consistently. The top board is the +/-300V supplies (with input EMI filtering) and the one below that is the bias supply set to 580V. Each amp section is 1" x 2" and each of the +/- PS sections are 1" x 1". Bias is a little wider.

  5. Threw together a scrap wood shooting board for the 62. Did the whole Rob Cosman build with the tape to keep glue up from warping the mdf. Seemed to work well.

  7. After several redesigns during construction I ended up with a multi-use storage cart. Need to finish it off with some French cleats on each side and decide if I Arm-R-Seal it or just use Shellac like the MDF top. Decided it needed more bling so added some Zebrawood holders and Woodpecker stuffs.

  9. Hi! i would like to share my work with you. I made an dynalo amp powered by grlv power supply and a pcm1794a/cm6631a dac. Everything is totaly made by me. I also designed the pcb nd ordered it from JLCPCB. Amp offset voltage stays at max +-1mV and it is totally silent. Case is DOUK AUDIO. pictures: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1a6cbGFpN6s5EadR8DA_lb21ZFwOwzK4R?usp=sharing

  10. Set up my Rega in my son's room, on top of an Andover Audio Spinbase. But just picked up an ADL GT40a to listen via headphones, and do some vinyl rips. First up: Chameleonsvox, lead singer of my favorite band. Great 2 album live set on red and blue splatter vinyl, with bonus 7", CD's, poster, cards and more. Well-recorded too!

  15. I know, originality score of zero but winter appears to be departing rather quickly so I got out this morning while it was snowing a bit. It sadly turned to rain before I was done and has been doing that steadily for the last two hours. Still, much fun was had.

  16. I've tried every shortcut to making bb drawers, from pocket holes to dominos to biscuits. In the end, I found that an actual joint was both faster and more accurate than any of them. And more satisfying. And probably stronger.

  18. I applaud this thread!!! On point 1 that James made, I am very guilty of helping cause this issue. I have mixed comments on the GRHV across threads for Blue Hawaii BJT, Carbon, and a few others as well. Just to make sure that it is almost impossible for anyone to learn from what I did. ๐Ÿ˜ On point 2, I have tested 2 alternatives to the C2M1000170D, and both appear to work fine. One of them is pretty new and usually in stock: https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/?qs=vHuUswq2%2Bsy%2BS7yfkaWaCA%3D%3D Item on left is the one that is in stock. Item to the right is the al

  22. A little bit of playing with some options/config on the bias supply and we got it down to 40mA draw on the batteries Might be able to do a bit better still. All in draw now is 260mA. We have some ideas on how to maybe bring this down a bit more.

  33. Stopped the cabinet project to complete the build and do the Ng 5 Cut Test for the Cross Cut Sled. Based on the accuracy with no adjustment, I am guessing I did it wrong or did not do a long enough 5th cut.

  37. I used to go to the one in Campbell all the time and the Sunnyvale one in a pinch. I knew a lot of folks in the Campbell area (used to live at the Upstart Crow coffeehouse there) and I'd run into some of them there sometimes. In fact, it was the last time I saw Lloyd (old member here) was there. I kinda dug the weird decor and the bargains on snacks and stuff that lined the checkout area. I really miss having a local electronics store (even Radio Shack was better than nothing) but there ya go.

  42. It's probably not going anywhere. Various iterations were either unstable or too noisy. Circuit boards for the Raal experiment (code named "Bridgeport") have been ordered. I should know more about that in a few weeks. Also, there is some thought to doing a very small run of a 10 year anniversary version of the L2. The basic circuit would remain the same, but there are a few changes that should serve as an upgrade to the original.
