Haha, trying to understand your drift. Finding it somewhat elusive at the moment. That's my shop.

Where is your shop located? Also, I'd love to know what times you operate at, and the security codes ;)

Gotcha, try the neighborhood bank first for practice. Befriend the cute teller, maybe she'll invite you to a backdoor tryst.

Those are some good looking stand you have there. I would buy one in a heartbeat if I had money!

I was aiming at making something different from the usual quadrilateral geometry, so something in the shape of a crescent moon was what I finally settled on.

 

This is the 1st of 3 designs planned; more to come...

So you bought all the parts and made it yourself then.. and DId you get the case-ish thing from them as well.. Sorry Im still coming in to high end audio and I was looking around for a cool headphone stand... Then I saw this, figured maybe it could be my first stand/amp

I would caution against touching something made with metal, to an amplifier with an open chassis like that. Let's just say the outcome could be ... shocking :eek:

The original poster uses it as his headphone stand. Plus any part of the AD700's that would be touching it would be either A) Plastic, B) Velvet earpads, or C) Touching the outside of the case. Plus any time the amp would be on the headphones wouldn't be resting on it.

Suit yourself. Just remember what I said, when Mr. Electricity introduces himself to you.

That's a bad attitude to have when dealing with electricity. Some of the equipment I work with is poised to deliver 1200A at 208V without considering it a problem.

Those heatsink can get very hot.:mad:

post #2775 of 3028

I just don't understand the big deal. I understand electricity can be dangerous. But I wasn't going to be using it as a headphone stand when the amp would be on, and it's not like i'm going to go around poking my fingers in it while it's plugged in either. Common sense goes a long way in keeping you safe. I didn't mean it in a literal sense, hence the "ha ha"
