  1. 2018 PCB Group Buy with TKD pots

    Megatron style +1
  2. 2018 PCB Group Buy with TKD pots

    Another board suggestion: the PSU board for the tube based ubal/bal board?
  3. Linkwitz Labs LX Mini

    +1 on the above. Have the LXminis and they really do disappear, and bass can be complemented with sub setup of choice. Stock config goes a long way though, depending on musical preferences.
  4. Dynalo Mini enclosure group buy

  5. The Headcase Stax thread

    Interesting! So, (what at least looks like) the L700 drivers in a L300 housing, and at half the price of the L700 (on japanese sites)...
  6. Soekris discrete R2R DAC?

    Most likely none. There’s a small chance that some come with non-working drivers, so if you are unlucky and get a bad one, then just order another
  7. Soekris discrete R2R DAC?

    Only tried PC myself, but Mac options exist: http://www.belkin.com/us/p/P-F5U409/
  8. Soekris discrete R2R DAC?

    SMT only. Yep, the serial port is a challenge. There are USB-to-serial adapters on ebay for cheap though; I've used those successfully in the past.
  9. Soekris discrete R2R DAC?

    Nice! Have you been playing with the filters, or are they stock? Still got quite a few buffers left from the GB, so let me know if I should send some your way.
  10. goldenreference low voltage power supply

    Definitely interested.
  11. The Multi Amp aka Dynalo Mk2

    Nicely done! About accuracy: it may also be that you have hit the limits of your DMM:
  12. The Headcase Stax thread

    Someone else on the forum (can't remember who just now unfortunately) recommended these for female pins: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10pc-CMC-8P-Tube-Socket-Gold-plated-Pin-Hex-Snap-Hole-2x10mm-6V6-6L6-5AR4-6SN7-/130342224494?hash=item1e5900826e I've used them on multiple builds. They are tight so need a little pre-bending out before you put them in the connector, but work fine for me.
  13. The Headcase Stax thread

    KG posted this long ago in another thread: STAX jack Imagine the socket as a 6 pin with the 6th pin missing, but at position 0,0 (x,y) The rest of the pins are at 0,. 2175 -.2175, 0 +.2175, 0 -.1087, -.1883 +.1087, -.1883 (in inches)
  14. KGSSHV Carbon Build Thread

    I think it depends on your preferred tonality balance. For me, the 009>>L700>>007mkII progression tilts the perception curve toward more bass and less treble. I think you're coming from the 507? If so, the 007mkII will likely sound most different from what you have now (but still great, I use those more than my 009's out of my Carbon).
  15. So, presumably 1.5A per GRLV then (i.e. 3.0A for a bipolar one). That said, Sören’s suggestion above is very interesting! I’ll think about rebuilding my Dynahi Psu that way, just to try it out.
