  1. Anyone have any idea what this damping material is? It is what was used by GNSC for their mods to my Resolution Audio Opus 21. It kinda looks like dynamat and is 3.4mm thick but doesn't feel like dynamat (or smell asphalt like). Is it Paxmate?
  2. The DPS or required PSU pinout would match the Elpac wallwart these used to come with. V1 is V+, V2 is V-. From the datasheet:
  3. Happy Birthday Mike!
  4. Thanks for replying. Very clever use of the grommet strips. Once you brought them up, I recall seeing these used for grommet holes. I would have never thought of using them for this purpose. Well, maybe if I had some on hand, a light bulb would have gone on...
  5. I had looked at this closer awhile back, and noticed what looks like a wire loom or separator down on the floor of the amp by the output jacks, to hold the output lines in order. Is this something that you made, or is commercially available? I did a quick search at Mouser but didn't turn up anything like this. Thanks!

  7. RIP Pat DiGiacomo (aka Jocko Homo), passed away Nov. 4th. Good guy, knowledgeable engineer, but came off as being a bit cranky https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/in-memoriam/362564-rip-jocko.html
  8. Doing a google search (which I assume you have done ad nauseum), revealed an Audio Karma thread which might be of assistance: https://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/cd-player-belts.345514/ http://www.kenselectronics.com/lists/belts.htm

    Your Honor

    I've been watching it as well, though I'm not caught up (S1E4 was the last I watched). I'm enjoying it, and would recommend.
  11. You mean the 3 parts (XLRs, RCAs and switch)? It seems to though I haven't measured or done any sort of mock up. I think there will probably be enough slop possible in assembly to get them to match, but I'll play around with it. The switch is an NKK m2042xxxxx, and the Neutriks are NC3FAV2. I tied the two chassis gnd connections from the Neutriks together with a pad in the middle, and did the same with the pin 1s. Then put two pads in connected to the board gnd plane. I'll probably add another pad for chassis ground to give the most flexibility. On my Pass Aleph P, the XLR grounds bo
  12. From Rane 110, it appears that the "right" way to do it is to tie pin 1 to chassis. The two pins in the lower right corners of the XLRs are also supposed to go to chassis, correct? If so, I could wire these together to a pad to wire to chassis ground.
