  1. ok, now that I have my locky_z curve tracer working I need to figure out what template to load in the tracer to match the BC556 (PNP) and BC546 (NPN) and what settings to use. I'm kind of lost in that area and I've never used anything precise like this to match. I'm pretty sure the unbal/bal boards run at 20Vdc so I'm guessing I want to match for that voltage but other than that? Here's the templates available and a screenchot of the settings for one of the PNP templates
  2. 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.
  3. Yeah, I guess when you think about it the cost outweighs the risk sometimes
  4. Thanks Bro, just happy to be up and running. Who puts a water based surpression system in a data center? That's common sense 101. I mean anyone who's watched Terminator 2 should know about Halon. I don't think they use it in new installs but still.
  5. Sadly, mine was DOA. I set it up tonight for the first time with 36VDC. Verified I had voltage at the supply and connector. Plugged the power in, heard relays click. Plugged in USB and no device detection. Removed USB and power, then just plugged in the power. That produced a spark when inserting the power connector. I sent a message to Locky for assistance. We'll see what needs to be replaced. He included and empty populated board so worse comes to worse I'll populate that. My advice, buy the one made with new components if in stock
  6. Definitely agree on the need tweaking part. I'm getting ready to build my third one with a separate PSU for the AVCC along with DimDim's isolator board and TFT display
  7. I had listened to the Yggy about three years ago at can jam nyc and didn't like the sound compared to my BIII at the time. I've since built a BIII Pro 9028 and an all Salas power supply. This was a huge improvement to the original BIII. Has the Yggy gone through improvements since then?
  8. The Terminator looks great, was it worth the price?
  9. Amazon's got it for $1100 I'll definitely look up some reviews
  10. I'm looking to buy a R2R DAC that's commercially produced. I've been looking at the Denafrips Pontus and want to stay in that price range. Are there any others worth looking at?
  11. If you want to go the cmoy route, try this https://jdslabs.com/product/cmoybb-v203r-pcb-rechargeable/ They have a parts list, assembly manual and even a template to help you line the holes up on the tin
  12. lol... I'll suck some miller lites down. That'll cool it off
  13. Well, after the fly on my right hand in January... It wasn't too bad getting it but after the color and the shading it feels like someone removed the top layer of skin with a blow torch right about now
  14. that's a neat little device. I never saw that one before
  15. Yeah, there was one or two people on there that said they had failures. One said the results were sometimes eratic and the other guy had a cap fail after 40 minutes I got the psu yesterday so I'll take a look at it totmorrow. I bought it to match the BC546\BC556 for the unbal\bal and buffer boards
