marce mod: turn your M


Recommended Posts

Your prices certainly seem reasonable given the labor and parts costs involved. I'm just glad pioneers like yourself are forging ahead with mods like these otherwise we'd all be at the mercy of high-priced amp builders.

Bravo to you.

Will it sound as good as a Raptor?

I'm actually finishing up a mod for the B22 that makes it sound better than the Raptor! And all you need is a snorkel, ice pick, and a avocado for the mod.

Hi Luv

I would hope for that kind of money, will you at least be decorating the chips...? :popcorn:

And will you be enlisting someone to review it in stages during it's 1750 hr burn in, so we can read all about it every day.... ? :popcorn:

And could you make the signals run in both directions at the same time like Grawk's....? :popcorn:

Thanks

USG

lol...

in all seriousness, this copper foil EMI/RFI tape from 3M is pretty sweet. I haven't tried it on any opamps, but the DACs I've used it (such as the TDA1543 in the picture) on I can definitely tell a difference. Here's a link to some general information. I plan on trying it to my PPAv2 opamps soon and will report back.

That'd rawk

heh :) I like those heatsinks... beats the hell outta the Mouser / Digikey stuff.. I have some D2PAK form MOSFETs in my phonostage that could really use them. Nelson Pass had these mounted under the PCB and against the case and I didn't realize that until I finished my layout... yeah, they get real hot.

Hint: video card / BGA chip overclockers make cool stick-on heatsinks.

Could you maybe put a bunch of these things in so users could ya know, like tune the sound like ya know, helmolz rosinators or some such shit like that?

That'd rawk

I misread that as "could you maybe put a bunch of these things in users...?" Now that's a mod to consider. I'd like to recommend a few people for trials.

Are these still available? I could maybe use some if so. They are stick on?

yeah, a very nice thermal adhesive too. I bought them from here:

I tried a few different ones out and found these to test the best. After cryo'ing the heatsink, you'll get about -.0001 C/W better as well. It's definitely worth it.

heh... I would recommend using them as a weight loss program... My wife stepped on one of these and it wasn't pretty :-[

Thanks for the link. You're joking on the cryoing, right? :kitty:

(not up on my thermal shit, but 0.0001 C/W doesn't sound like its worth it...).
