    I wonder if the bass will make the stands do tippy dance.
  2. Is it too late? Please sign me up for: 2x GRHVxxx1x GRLV79xx1x GRLV78xx1x Main Board 1x miniT2
  3. Unfortunately for me, I have to supply [email protected] L-Adapter looked promising but only go up to 20V. I've ordered Smooth Like Butter Single Rail. PCB+parts+shipping will cost around $100. Hope this solves my problem.
  4. Got my 24V assembled and running. I dont think it handles high current nicely. with 2A load @ 24v, I have about 1V drop at the output.

    https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/rolling-op-amps-in-gustard-h20-headphone-amplifier.7407/ Not sure if this test is comprehensive, it doesnt look too good for Sparko.
  6. Looking close to this: https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/group-buys/333844-ideal-bridge-rectifier-gb.html
  7. Got my Voron 2.1 printer somewhat put together. Voron2.1 - Imgur.mp4
  8. What worries me is what caused it, I simply tested the amp with 1k sine wave. I hope it's just the input jfet.
  9. I think I let the magic smoke out by swapping into JFET input. Now the amp functions normally with input on + and G input, but not - and G. Should I worry about anything else than the J109? (another pair of J109 and K389 worked perfectly)
  10. Is there a high pass/low pass between electrostatic and dynamic? Or they are wired in parallel.
  11. I'm intrigued, I wonder if it would be a good entry level turntable?
  12. I think somewhere in this thread said 100k
  13. Had common.net installed one of these on my roof. Now I'm part of wireless mesh.
  14. If I were to replace input BJTs with JFETs(toshiba or linear), what IDSS range should I aim for?
  15. Are those holes drilled by a shotgun?
  16. I need to make/buy some very short and soft (5-10cm) USB cables. Any suggestions?
  17. All in those two google drives: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B7egryukiT7_TFlEQlBRejdVdDQ https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B_iJFfZStuVhSE5nOHBVdTByR1k

    Were you on Reddit too? Saw this earlier from Reddit.
  19. Planning to use the amp to drive my Quad ESL 63. Somewhere there might be a pair of Magnepan 3.7 with my name on it, but that's down the road.
  20. 25amp draw that's for 4 boards or 2 boards? If it's 25amp for 2 boards, the 800W PS should do 2 boards nicely. If not there's always 2kW ones.
  21. Happy Birthday Kerry!
  22. I think congo5 used xicon, which you will have to bend the legs. That's fine for me. I believe the Uberamp drive board runs on +/- 40Vdc. It can certainly run on lower rails. It will be a two chassis solution in my case. I was inspired by Benchmark AHB2. Is it a good idea to use SMPS for the unreg power supply? Like this one: http://connexelectronic.com/product/smps800re/ +/- 50 for unreg, and GRLV drops it to +/- 40 for reg.
  23. Got my Uberamp boards. Here's my version of BOM if it helps anybody: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EIAvFJHqTJL5zzM43FIhz-wJhd_scJiClbLd24QNv9s/edit?usp=sharing Here are a few questions: 1 Power rating of the big .47 resistors. The best option for 10W seems to be this: https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Xicon/280-CR10-047-RC?qs=sGAEpiMZZMtbXrIkmrvidMioh4DscLtBmqbN3KPTLlY%3d Although the lead space is shorter than the length of the resistor. There are a lot more options at 5W. 2 What's the 5k trim pot for? 3 How to wire it for balanced setup (2 boards per channel)? Also what are +/- reg drvier for?
