  1. Am I late to the party? https://www.massdrop.com/buy/headamp-gilmore-lite-mk2-headphone-amp It's pretty cute, I regret not grabbing a mk1 unit over all these years. I like the knob!

    how can you tell if the diaphragm is damaged by sunlight? is it gradual or do the headphones just stop functioning altogether past a certain point? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    As long as it can hold a T2 I'm down at this point haha Do you have any recs? You must be a sage when it comes to organizing & displaying audio equipment 😁

    What racks are those? I'm in the market for something that can hold my electrostatic setup.
  5. Hope you guys don't mind, but I'm taking the liberty to collect some info, links etc. here. 900V floating supplies 350V/us the cole slew (couldn't resist) seems to be happening in bits and pieces in multiple threads on multiple forums and there are some implementation issues which seem to be worth discussing...namely fitting all of this somewhat daunting amplifier into one case. I guess at some point Kevin decided to split the input and output stages- output board output schematic The output stage features the floating supply floating supply fboard floating supply schematic the input/driver board As of today the aim is to fit this all in a single modushop 5U chassis, the floating supplies make it prohibitive to split the build across multiple boxes. Transformer Specs: Supposedly trivial to get an EL34 version of this working but SiC version will be first Just wanted to hopefully direct discussion here instead of dragging it across the kgsshv/GB/headfi threads. I'll update this when I get around to fishing around for the appropriate information. Thanks to Kevin for making the design process somewhat transparent ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Figured I'd put this here too, since Kerry speaks for all of us:

    I noticed that you mentioned bespoke options on the site, can you give any details and how you plan to temper/control requests?

    I think those are just lemo connectors right? Should be easy to tally up what you need from mouser
