  1. Ran across these guys on an alternative station here in Chicago last night while driving. Actors, a Vancouver band... me likey... rather '80s-iish

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Wow! A B24 (J?). How was it?

    and now for something completely different part 3

    UBAL board (unbalanced to balanced) for the front end.
  4. 1) You should be able to, but I don't have a sim to measure power dissipation in these. Since they are only used as drivers (and not as the outputs as in the SS Dynalo) I think you should be OK. I thought you said you had these? 2) Yes. The MJF is an isolated package, so you can bolt straight to the heatsink. It is rated at 36W vs. 50W for the MJE (with metal tab). I think they are the same die, just package difference.
  5. Those fuckers actually grab Kevin's gerbers... nice.
  6. I just checked, couldn't find them, and then remembered that I sold them to another user (anorphirith) about a year ago. They were v1.5 boards. Sorry! I do still have a pair of the originals (2004), but that would be single-ended and not SuSy. You might check with Steve (sbeylo) and see if he has any left over?
  7. Not sure on board versions, and will have to wait until I am home to check. Not sure that I would build an older version either, even with the parts. I presume the newer versions are also supersymmetry? The real old original versions weren’t really set up as balanced as they used (1) 2Sj109 and 2SK389 per channel (so 4 pair total for balanced), which essentially wasted 2 pair. I think I have a pair of boards at home that I won’t be using. I’ll check tonight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. I wasn't really in listening mode yesterday at Axpona, but did listen to both an Aeon and an Ether 2 from the GS-X mini, and it sounded good. I still didn't care for the Aeon but liked the Ether 2, and the GS-X mini seemed to drive it really well.

    Burson Audio V5i opamps

    The cap is probably the erroneous V+ to V-... Yours doesn't have all the magical components touted in the marketing hype?

    The Multi Amp aka Dynalo Mk2

    I could consider it. I don't have any cases, so would have to have one made. If you wanted the TKD version, I would have to get a board and the TKD pot as well. As well as all of the other parts (not a problem), so not cheap. What if you don't like it?

    No. Snake oil.

    The Multi Amp aka Dynalo Mk2

    Not being able to build one yourself is a problem. As for one already built, they rarely, if ever, come up for sale. Commercially, the closest thing(s) to it are Headamp Gilmore Lite or Justin's new Headamp GSX Mini Balanced. Note that the Gilmore Lite is single-ended only.

    Where are you seeing the reversed plugs at? Or is this because of the 0.2ohm impedance (without the box)?
