Roll Call: Who's building, built, or thinking of building a beta22? - Page 211

post #3151 of 3161

So I just finished my new beta and I thought I would show it off here.  It is fully balanced with 4 channels, has epsilon 24 muting circuit.  

 

The amp has no back panel because front panel express over milled one of my panels and I had to wait for them to send me a new one. 

 

Power supply

 

Off

 

Back with everything plugged in chaotically.

 

It sounds great, and is dead silent.  Just burning it in now and making sure everything is working as intended.

Very nice. Who did the front panel? I really like the script engraving, and the led's around the volume knob is a nice touch.

Front Panel Express did all 4 of my panels.  That script is in their software that they offer for you to use.  The so called LED's are actually just holes that I had them drill half way through the panel :rolleyes:.  With the right light it shines a bit.

Ah, I see. It must have been the flash that made them look illuminated. On one of my FPE panels that was too thick for the LED to reach through,

I had a countersunk hole done on the outside of the panel. Worked pretty well.

Thanks :beerchug:.  Now time to build a Dynahi and Krell KSA 5

post #3157 of 3161

the KSA-5 should be a breeze after building a balanced B22.

I sure hope so.  I ran into so many problems that delayed this amp, not all of them being mine.  I am excited to see which sounds better.

A couple more pictures...I have no shame.  I replaced the cheep chinese pot with a goldpoint one.  Looks better and also all the turns feel better.

Awesome. Did you tap the V+ and V- power rails for the epsilon 12 from the DC input directly or from the amp boards?

Directly from the power rails.  I think that it makes wiring easier that way.
