  1. Here is a list of the participants and the number of sets (2 boards per set). Please correct me if I missed something. The * indicates that the participant has PayPal'ed me the cost for the boards. jose* 2 Kevin Gilmore 1 gwrskien* 2 PICaudio* 3 Sr Marques* 2 gepardcv* 2 MLA* 1 chinsettawaong* 1 chiguy 1 MattN* 1 headinclouds 1 livewire 1 Inu* 1 GB will close after today. Tomorrow I will contact PCBnet to place order.
  2. This is way cool Kerry!
  3. Thanks Chris! Two 25VA transformers stacked - one for each channel
  4. Old wine in a new bottle - just finished casing mySS Dynalo today. Dual mono setup - one Antek 25va transformer and one 20VDC GoldenReference for each channel. Just over 14mA current on each output device (MPSWx6). First built this SS Dynalo back in 2014. Every time I took a break from my ES setup to listen to this amp I am amazed how much I like its sound. Wish I had the chance to listen to the top Focal headphones with this amp...
  5. My bad. I meant to close the GB in one week but I read the Calendar wrong. 2/26 it is. GB is reopened. I like to use heavier copper on PCB like the BH board with tube filament traces that carry higher current.
  6. I don't have one on mine either although I do have a thermistor on the AC mains.
  7. I can confirm that the 2 oz and 3 oz copper option is not a big factor in PCBnet pricing - in this case, it really comes down to the number of boards. It is also true that for other fab house (such as Seeed) the copper weight affects cost greatly. I don't know why. I can price out the GRHV boards at Seeed if people are interested. And yes, the PCB board is really a small % of investment compares to the parts and chassis, etc..
  8. Why not follow the high-end audio industry practice and just use duck tape. They supposed to sound better that way!
  9. Another two GRLV live! These are set up for 20VDC rails to power my dual-mono SS Dynalo. Thanks to Pars for his creation and generosity of sharing the Schottky bridges with a built-in AC snubber. Although I have to settle for the LM4040 VREF for now until I get the LT1021.
  10. It does not look like we have enough interest in GRHV to support a GB. We will follow the original plan to close this GB today and I'll submit order Monday.

  11. The BH board measures 5.6" x 4.5" (143mm x 115mm). The transistors are meant to be mounted off-board so if using an angle you'll need to add on to the 4.5"/115mm dimension. Like the Grounded Grid and T2, the tubes are meant to be mounted on the back side of the boards. Possibly a few others parts (LED, trimpots) too for ease of adjustment.
  12. I have some Philip Miniwatt tubes.
  13. Enkei is another option I can recommend for rotary forged wheels. I have a set of their 18" Raijin wheels and like them a lot. http://enkei.com/shop/tuning/raijin/ Enkei's been around for a long time and has manufactured wheels for Formula 1 cars.
  14. Got the quote back for the PSU boards. 2mm thickness and 3 oz copper, at 10 sets each the dual board will cost about $37 US each and the split boards will be about $74 per set. I am not too surprised with the high cost, volume speaks.
  15. Update: 1. MLA has gracefully volunteered to be the Europe "distributor" of this GB so I will ship all Europe-bound boards to MLA for him to relay to the individuals. thanks MLA! 2. Thanks to sbelyo for offering. I am happy to add the GRHV PS to the GB too. Please state your interest (number of boards, preference of split vs. dual boards) here. For these HV applications I recommend we use 2mm thick boards. I'll get a preliminary quotes from PCBnet and share the information here. We will likely need to extend the GB for a few days longer. Hope that's not a problem for you all.
