  1. mmm... I’m pretty sure that is the same old generation.
  2. Looks like a Chinese company that’s pricing using AUD. I have wondered how they made their amps so cheap. What a steaming pile of crap.
  3. It really isn’t patch on Kerrys magnificent builds, he’s on a whole other level.
  4. Finally done! I regrettably sold my previous KGSSHV Carbon a while ago, this one’s not going anywhere soon. This is a 400V, 19mA version, using the ground plane amp board, Sumr transformer and Goldpoint V47 attenuator. I bought the heatsinks from China and had all the drilling and panels done at Front Panel Express. I pulled out the Canon 5D from the cupboard for some tasty shots.
  5. More progress, it’s been a while since I tested one of these, I used Soren’s adjustment method for the CCS which worked well, dialled in for 19mA
  6. Another Carbon in the works, I received my panels and drilled heatsinks back today. I haven’t put it together yet... I sure hope everything fits. Adobe Illustrator preliminary file:
  7. Or you could use Molex Spox connectors instead of terminal blocks in those LV positions.
  8. It’s a wee little beasty. Very slick, but how much current are your pushing with those sinks?
  9. Goldpoint V47 is same Elma switch and a lot less money.
  10. I see Ok gotcha, DACT or RK50 only then. The Goldpoint V47 is 47 steps vs DACT 24 steps. I also prefer the wafers with PCBs vs DACTs pinouts (not an issue with your T2 pcb though). Then channel matching on either DACT or Goldpoint would be better than the RK50 as well as a lot less money. The Goldpoint feels incredibly good quality not RK50 quality, but a lot better than the DACT from my experience. I’ve also had Kozmo’s as well and was not a fan, maybe quality has improved but not willing to gamble.
  11. Since KSC5026M is 0 stock worldwide, could I drop in the original part 2SC3840 without issue into the latest HV designs?
  12. It’s really dried up out there, I’ve looked everywhere for KSC5026M for a HV supply, if any one has stock kicking around I need 4 pcs? Happy to trade on something you may need, have quite a few bits and pieces.
  13. 50k not 50ohm The Goldpoint V47 is an incredible attenuator, I prefer way more than DACT or RK50.
  14. That is fucking BEAUTIFUL! Congrats Kerry!

  16. Very nice build, any reason you couldn’t have used one custom transformer?
  17. ^ I have protector boards, pm me if interested
