    Nice @jose! What are the Mundorf capacitors for? I thought this was DC-coupled?

    (closed) Dynalo Mini enclosure group buy

    From checking the shipping status it seems like everyone received their cases and there was zero losses. I just wanted to thank everyone for participating in this group buy and trusting me with your money. The PDFs in the OP can be used if you want to order more at Enclosures & Cases Inc or they should work without any modifications at Context Engineering. I'll try to release a generic file of dimensions eventually which you can adapt to any enclosure. I also have some odd n ends that I will have for sale soon. Just few extra front plates and sides that they included, but nothing that amounts to a complete enclosure. I'll also make the prototype case available cheap. Also thank you everybody for covering my cases. It was an unexpected and very welcome gift. I don't really do this expecting a reward or compensation, but it's still very appreciated.

    I only know one person so far that did the SMD version. He says it gets pretty toasty and needs heatsinks. He also did a few mods. On my Dynalo Mini I mounted the LEDs backwards initially and it drove the temp really high. Read his posts because he also changed a few things that you should probably implement. I plan on building it too but have some other projects in my queue I need to finish. first thing i would ask is does it work without the buffers?

    Oh good. I was starting to worry about yours. Now just two more left. I think they are in some sort of shipping purgatory. Or the tracking just hasn't been updated

    Or just put in the IEC socket anyway and use a plug

    That's for the IEC power inlet. The single black screw is for the RCA jacks. If you use all the washers the silver screws are a little short, but should still be fine.

    Great! I was most worried about your package since I argued about the correct customs forms with them.

    Finally sent out the last three. It was a a mild headache to convince the post office to sell me something they advertised. TLDR - If you plan on shipping internationally with the "Large Video Box", do the postage and weighing at home.

    The ultimate DIY? A Stax SRM-T2!

    I bought a couple boards from sorenb. He might still have some available.

    How's testing on the mini GRLV and GRHV? Any revisions needed?

    Thanks for all your hard work on this GB

    All boxes have been shipped except for three international packages that need a special flat rate box that the post office doesn't typically carry. Apparently a plain box with the same dimensions isn't good enough. I mean it is, but it adds $20 to shipping

    Shipped another 6 today and 3 yesterday. PMs with tracking numbers coming. I might be able to help when I wrap up this group buy. I'll send you a PM when I finish.

    The Multi Amp aka Dynalo Mk2

    The prototype got pretty hot. This case I haven't tried nearly as long but i did go brute force and had a bunch of holes on the top and bottom plate. I don't know how much more can be done except to drill the sides. I'll report back on temps
