  1. Star Citizen (Free weekend through Feb 1st)

    what is your impression of the game so far? I was excited about it when it was first announced, but now I can't really see a good outcome. Either it never gets "released", or it does and it's a goddamn behemoth that requires hundreds of hours of gameplay to get any sort of real satisfaction from your investment. Also didn't they completely change the engine used for the game at some point recently? These fuckers are all well too comfortable. Though considering some of the other space sims that were recently released and flopped, who knows.. I'd be happy with a Freespace 3 or something like that.
  2. Which DIY amp

    Any input on the RJM Sapphire? - http://phonoclone.com/diy-sapp.html There's a thread on it on diyaudio, not much info elsewhere. Wandering what thoughts of it would be here. Seems like you can have one built at fairly reasonable cost.

    Got a reply on head-fi along the same lines as yours, but also that star ground was same as input ground. Tested that, worked fine, went with it as it would be least messy option in this case. Thanks again for your reply, you guys have some cool weird shit going on here. Have been looking for a new headamp project to start that won't be all too intimidating, this has been a good place to look.

    Thanks very much for the quick reply @Pars, measuring resistance between R1L, R1R, and what remained of IG it would seem they are indeed on the same plane. I will try to wire it all up shortly. Personally have nothing but good things to say about Alex, met him at RMAF once, good dude. Also this little amp is good fun, when you don't go breaking it. Compatible with lots of tubes, sound ain't too bad for what it is. Thanks again, will let you know how it works out.
  5. Hello, I have a Cavalli CTH amp that I built about 8-9 years ago. During that time I tinkered with it and had to rebuild parts of it once or twice, and then again rewired it and installed a new volume pot. Long story short, I burned out the input ground (IG) connection on the board. I was able to get it to connect to some degree, or so I though, but recently when trying to bring it back to life it came off again. I wanted to ask advice on how I might go about repairing this. The IG seems isolated from rest of the board, so am wondering if I can just install a isolated nylon spacer on the chassis and put a metal screw on it, run IG wire to that. IG currently is connected to ground connection on the volume pot, loose on other end. I don't have a schematic for the amp, those were posted on Cavalli's site which is not up anymore. Was able to find some images of board and wiring diagrams of the later revision of the amp I have, but I think as far as the IG connection goes, it is the same. Images uploaded here - https://imgur.com/a/05Lhb I also posted this on head-fi, but the DIY community here seems more ..alive. Thanks for the help!!
