Bijou All Tube Futterman Headphone Amplifier - Page 274

post #4096 of 4171

Hello

Some useful info.

 

Just receive ALPS RK27 Terminal PCB Board for Bijou volume control.

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/171258426056?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

 

Nice price, quality and fast delivery.

 

Photo with RK27 (I solder RK27 on opposite PCB side for some reason)

Intel(R) IPP JPEG encoder [7.0.1041] - Jul 19 2011;

 

 

-- Regards, Victor

 

P.S.

Be carefully!

This PCB adapter have a common ground between L and R.

So ground loop available! Probably I will do some works with Dremel tool for splitting ground on this PCB.

 

After some thinking I decide NOT use this adapter for Bijou.

Hello,

 

Any noise issues with LED`s mounted on AMP boards?

 

Or better to use separate full-wave rectifier (with 100-1000 uF capacitor) connected with heater 6.3V?

Victor, I haven't seen anything specific about having the LEDs on the amp boards.  That would be a good question for runeight (Alex), however.  Most builds, if done correctly, seem to be very quiet.

Hello,

Thank you for the answer.

Will test with on-board LED circuit first.

 

Some photos with good quality

I hope new case will be at my bench next week.

Victor

Victor, FWIW I chose to install LED's under the power supply and amp tube sockets using the heater for power. No issues whatsoever.

Hello,

Thank you Balderon.

As I understand you place LED`s in central hole of tube socket`s for illumination.

Victor

Victor - nice photos.  Good, clean work!  I see you socketed R2.  You must be thinking about the Regal mods ;)

 

Yes, many people do put LEDs under their tubes for illumination.  Just don't use the LEDs that automatically scroll through the colors: Someone did that a few years back - he said it made him crazy in under five minutes!

Hello,

Regal mods was used from beginning.

No, no...

I`m very old for using multicolor LED`s.:L3000:

Only one orange LED will be used on front panel.

 

Just receive Bijou labels.

2 layer plastic (black+silver) laser engraved

 

 

No idea which label place on the case ... I like all :)

 

Funny "warning" stickers (hand painted - DIY) :D

 

 

 

-- Regards, Victor

Cool labels, Victor!  You wont know which one to use until you get the front panel mostly done (if you ask me).  Where did you get them done?

 

Where do you plan to place the high voltage warnings?  :)  Fun stuff.

Thanks Bhjazz.

I order "Bijou" labels at local company that provide laser cutting.

Like that http://www.ponoko.com/laser-cutting

I think google can help you find company near you.

 

But really my labels have a "cheap" appearance (I spent only 3$ for 5 labels)

Probably I will do experiment with Dremel tools and aluminum plate (engraving)

 

Skulls labels.... I think will be inside case. :)

 

-- Regards,

Victor

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt... I just removed another dumb post.
