  1. In other news, I just got back the analog input board and assembled the amp. The sandwich is 6.2mm thick + bottom components for a total of about 9mm thick. Batteries are about 10mm on top of the input board. Back plate on and plugged into USB-C (charging LED on) Why we did this... Portable music Just analog from my phone at the moment. DAC is up next PS The Weight is 12oz or 340g

  3. Building the world’s least efficient hardwood cutoff storage cabinet. Really needed the drawers above it so instead of doing the typical, proper, vertical cabinet, I went half-assed and threw all the sticks in a big drawer with sheets goods held behind the cabinet against the wall. Oh Yeah, the reason for the uneven overhang is I am going to mount the Wilton Woodworking vice on the one side and needed all the clearance. Oh Yeah Part Two, I also FINALLY got around to hanging the small French cleat panel I made way back. The craftsmanship in these holders in embarrassing.

  4. Here's the final board I just sent out to get manufactured... I added some more optional parts that help stabilize the current sense circuitry. The board is now 10mm x 58.4mm x 1mm. Parts are ordered, so it's a race to see if Mouser can ship my order before the boards arrive.

  7. Had a night at the opera last night... only instead of at the opera house it was a drive-up stage at the Marin Civic Center. They did Barber of Seville. It feels great to getting on the road back to live theater/music/opera.

  10. Diana Rigg and Anthony Hopkins, taken when they were acting in MacBeth at the National Theatre in 1972. I'd walk over hot coals to turn back the clock and see what must have been a superb performance.

  14. Adapter was the magic word. Made one with a 3-pin Dupont connector... very easy to swap the transistors. Thank you very much, champs! The 2cs3675 test somewhere between 1030-1120V on the DY294. Any special test procedures I should follow? Testing first with the Peak DCA75 checking pin's and type then the breakdown voltage with the DY294.

  18. I was surprised that he was shooting finish in such a small room. Looked like he had some kind of large-ish exhaust system set up though. Totally interesting! I remember a buddy telling me that he was spraying lacquer on hardwood trim in a bathroom and he tripped over the work light's power cord which was stupidly plugged into an extension in the room. The spark from the cord blew the room up and knocked him out. As he was being dragged out of the room, he could see the crown, door jams and base in flames. We used to set up some pretty big spray booths since we

  21. I just finished designing this battery protector board. It has a built in balancer to try and keep the cells at the same voltage. I added a thermistor that gets fed up to the battery management on the amp board. This also has it's own thermistor in the middle of the board. I'll set this to about 50 C for both and do some testing once I get this built. The board is 10mm x 56mm.

  23. Done some soldering exercise today. This small board contains 100 x 0402 10K resistors. Hand soldered with a Weller station, XNT-H tip and 0.3 mm solder wire. A few of the resistors are not flat to the board but I think they are acceptable soldered. Looking at your board, Kerry, there seems to be some really nasty things. Any chance for part numbers? I have to convince myself that the best way is to pay for a prepopulated board…

  24. Officially updated the build. Truck was built on the 27th of April and will now sit in a parking lot until August waiting for fucking chips for delivery in September. Time to cancel and fly to Texas to buy a truck.

  26. Here is the simple adapter I made. Black wire connected to left and middle pins of the green holder and red wire to right pin. Black banana to E on the meter and red to C. At some point I must have changed C and E connectors on the meter to bananas but I can’t remember having done that… P.S. Found this in cyber space: https://jestineyong.com/duoyi-dy294-meter-repair/ https://www.pa4tim.nl/?p=6022

  27. I was wrong about my unit! It didn't like being plugged in to a hub. Wanted to be directly into the USB port on the PC. Also, I had to start my power supply at like 2Vdc and slowly ramp up to 32Vdc. It came to life after that.

  33. Laying down the modules for my CFAE. I decided to go with the GRHV instead of the BH Mini. Custom making the front and back panels. Back panel will have on the left/right symmetrically laid out and flush mounted the XLR ins/loop-outs and in the middle the IEC inlet. Fabricating the PCB boards for the XLR in/outs atm. Looking to use the CP4-2500 pot on a board as well together with two Stax teflon jacks on the front, symmetrically positioned left/right from the pot. Will use the 2.54mm Amphenol PV wire to board connectors between the XLR and volume pot PCBs as connectors are gold plated and dir

  38. I remember those little, lightweight, plastic headphones with the Yellow foam earpads that were so different than any other headphones out there in the 70's. You could actually listen for hours without your ears sweating. They were definitely innovators. End of an era, but change is a constant.
