  1. Looks neat. Looks like you didn't go for a balanced output on the Dynalo, any reason?
  2. Interesting, my 20mA build doesn’t get anywhere hot enough to be described as “a furnace”, and I used smaller heatsinks. OTOH, I also used smaller mounting brackets, so the hot transistors sit closer to the sink fins, which should help somewhat. My on-board heatsink KGSSHV ran hotter than the Carbon, and my Dynahi ran hotter still.
  3. Is the case as strange as it appears on photos?
  4. Thanks for all the advice! Guess I’d better go learn to use a table saw.
  5. That's a flat plane, as you surmised, showing a section cut through the threshold. I'm attaching a picture with perspective. Thank you for looking into it!
  6. Image with dimensions attached. I figured it should be easy, and I only brought up CNC because it's a simple solution IME for turning CAD files into parts. Doesn't mean it's the right way to build this thing. That's a great tip to find someone through a makerspace, but they're all closed in my area because of covid-19.
  7. Fusion file attached. What's a table table? (I don't know much about serious woodworking...) Threshold v1.f3d.zip
  8. I need a custom threshold built for my kitchen. (Omitting the long and completely uninteresting story about why.) Preferably in a nice wood I can finish myself. Since I have no access to woodworking equipment, I instead made a model in Fusion360, exported an STL file, and started emailing it to random woodworking shops which advertise CNC services on their web sites. It's been a week, and... crickets. The only guy who wrote back says he's moving shop and can't do it. For anyone here with woodworking experience, is this a difficult request? STL attached. Also, if anyone has any contacts fo
  9. I used TAP106K035CCS and TAP476K035CCS, rated for 35V. They seem to work fine...
  10. I built my Carbon with 680uF Mundorf/FT caps from this group buy from 2015. The 3.15A fuse I put in originally has never failed, after far more than 10-30 on-off cycles. No thermistors 🤷‍♂️. No problems after years of use. The 76mm height restriction was a bit annoying, but I made a fully-custom case slightly larger than 2U (100mm, using Fischer SK 56 100 SA heatsinks).
  11. To be fair, the one time I heard it, the LL made the 009 sound oh so dreamy...
  12. Anyone who doesn't want to be injured. That photo shows a device which is a hazard for (1) electrical shock, and (2) a fire.
  13. (Rant warning. Also, I haven't been reading any of the Apple commentariat, so I'm sure this has been covered and perhaps refuted by other people in more detail.) I'm pessimistic about this move to "Apple Silicon". Remember all the "G5, the only desktop supercomputer" nonsense from the early 2000s? Where some cherry-picked works-in-the-lab-only benchmark showed it outperforming an Intel chip, but ran everything in the real world with all the speed of frozen molasses? I'm getting echoes of the same thing here. CPU design is a game of dollars spent on chip design and optimization. Intel
  14. @skullguise: How are you liking that Brooklyn Amp? I've been thinking about it for the (planned) living room system, the small footprint appeals to me.
  15. Headphones ordered roughly by decreasing frequency of use: Audio Zenith PMx2 (really convenient!) Stax SR-007A (mid-2015 revision) (paired with a KGSSHV Carbon or KGST) Campfire Audio Andromeda JH13fp (of course) Oppo PM-3 (for closed use, often when playing (digital) piano) Sennheiser HD600 (mid-1999!) Still consider the HD800 an excellent headphone albeit one that benefits more from EQ than any of the above. Heard many current-TOTLs, consider most of them underwhelming or flawed compared to the above. Curious about ZMF products, never had a chance to t
