  1. RIP some fuck or another

    Very sorry to hear SG. RIP Gryphon.
  2. Power switch recommendation

    That looks pretty good Marc. Is your intent to support all 3 on a single board (single, dual and the LP2992)?
  3. Dynalo Mini enclosure group buy

    Any news? Prototype? Natives are restless
  4. RIP some fuck or another

    ^ This! Harry was some kinda funny, and the Bush's, while not a fan (not sure I can say that with who's in the driver's seat now ) seemed like a class act (at least Sr.), and definitely paid his dues.
  5. The Headcase Stax thread

    You could be pushing the drivers to their limit excursion-wise. I'm not a Stax person, but I know I have done that to my orthos... I'm sure Spritzer will correct me if I'm wrong
  6. Host it externally (flickr, etc.) and link to it.
  7. Happy Birthday Jeffy!

    Happy Birthday!
  8. Part Sourcing Assistance/Advice Thread

    My last order from December 2017 was fine...
  9. Blue Hawaii BJT Build thread

    Backlighting (multiple LEDs) behind just the knob, with the hole in the skirt for output...
  10. Blue Hawaii BJT Build thread

    My actual thought on this was to try to make the LEDs track the volume knob, much like a Pass Aleph P. The problem is I am using a TKD pot and not a relay based volume control in this, so barring an extra pot deck I can’t think of any way to do this. Maybe I’m missing something? And the green pointer on yours isn’t an LED? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. The Multi Amp aka Dynalo Mk2

    You should be able to, just as you could if you were using something like a 7812/7912. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. The Multi Amp aka Dynalo Mk2

    Those don't look too bad and are a bit cheaper. Not sure about the pot for voltage adjustment; might be better to replace it with fixed resistors if doable. Here's the negative: https://www.ebay.com/itm/TPS7A3301-Ultralow-noise-LDO-Regulator-3V-33V-Max-1A-Replace-LM337-7905-7912-/322538830904 They do appear to be pin compatible with the mini.
  13. Blue Hawaii BJT Build thread

    Very nice. I had a similar thought to the circle of LEDs for the case I’m laying out for the DynaFet. Nice on the pointer LED (as well as the rest of it)! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    RIP Cecil; and RIP Michael... tragic Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Yes, those would work nicely as well. Just be careful in that even though these share the same 7-pin package as the 2SJ109/2Sk389 Toshiba JFETs, they are not pin compatible. Therefore, a THAT340 adapter made for one will not work for the other. 2SA1349/2SC3381: BCE-ECB 2SJ109/2SK389: DGS-SGD Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
