I am playing with the idea of a larger case, as I find the existing one too cramped for circuit modding. After adding a few more components and upgrading others, it's very tight. So I am considering either a metal chassis, with wood case, or a fully metal case, similart to, but larger then the original. I also find the front panel a little cramped, with the HP socket so close to the volume knob. So I may liberate the HP socket and power LED from the PCB, to facilitate using a larger front panel.
When you said "to put the LD in a bigger case with my External Power Supply", did you mean that you intend using the amp with a different PSU? Or do you mean to accommodate both the LD1+ and another power supply in a single case to reduce desk clutter?
Yes i would like to put them together in one case to reduce clutter.The external PS is for the Tube(6SN7 and 12SN7) heaters running my LD 1 and MK III.
I just opened the LD 1 and found out that those wires from the transformer to PCB are short i think the easy way to do it is Mark and just cut them then resolder with longer wires if needed.it wont be that easy to do this so i have to think it over.
This picture is actually the cleanest if you see it now wires and some other crap on my desk.
