The really fun part of this DIY (for me) is that I can make exactly what I want. It takes a while to figure out all the various strengths and weaknessed and design trade-offs that are involved. I now have a relatively tiny amp (Pint), a Pimeta which fits somewhere in the small category, a transportable battery powered unit (PPA) for patio and travel, a no compromise desktop (M3) and a fun-to-tinker-with Millet.SOMEONE PLEASE.... STOP ME BEFORE I BUILD AGAIN!!!!!!
Oh yea, I gotta finish up those Meir Cross-feeds.
What, no DIY DACs yet? You know you need a bunch of those as well, a mini battery powered jobbie for use with the H140 you need to buy and modify, a bus powered USB DAC with built in amp for a portable laptop rig (Dont got a laptop yet? Here is your chance to justify one
), a NOS DAC so you can hear what so many people are raving about, and a fully maxed out differential PCM1704 dac with USB, SPDIF, and I²S inputs, custom discrete clock, discrete regulated PS, and everything.
