Also, what is that black ring at the top left corner in the back

The small rocker switch is the heater switch.

There will be a power switch when I get a replacement for the one I broke, the black ring is where the switch will go (just put in the bush to tidy up the hole for now)......

Cheers!
Nux.. You are going to love the amp.. Just take your time and you won't blow anything up..

These are the knobs I bought: 2,30x22 Aluminum Hi-Fi CD VOLUME TONE CONTROL KNOB,B - eBay (item 120382088037 end time Mar-23-09 20:32:53 PDT)

I used the same knobs on my SOHA II and SSMH, It is hard to see the index mark, so I filled it with white paint, worked very well.

Forte - I really like your build... Appearance, neatness & integration. Two or three @ the NYC meet suggested that including a DAC in the box would make it an ideal desktop all-in-one. This requires a slightly bigger case like the one you used or like that of my 2nd CTH (pic w/lid off on NYC meet impressions thread - pic that wiatrob noted).

Haven't delved into the DAC/USB/PC bit. I think my sources are now the weak point of my kit. Primarily use 256k/VBR MP3 off 5.5 Gen iPod & sometimes an old Sony D-777. Decent portable solutions but need something fancy @ home (esp after what I saw/heard yesterday

BTW hope my little box makes it to you soon - I mailed them all out the same day.

Thanks.

My first try at the DAC/USB/PC bit. Huge improvement over my iPod classic line out and as good as or even better than my X-Fi Soundcard which came as a surprise.

Hope to see your parcel tomorrow. Received some tubes Friday that shipped from the west coast same day.

I'm trying to decide which Cavalli project to take on and it seems like the SOHAII and the CTH is similar in difficulty, can anyone compare the two's sound quality?

Just kinda doing some what-if thinking; but what considerations would be needed for using two boards for balanced use? Aside from a transformer/wall-wart capable of 2A

The idea has been floated around this thread, but no technical point shave been discussed AFAIK.

I happen to have some plans to do a balanced version of this amp myself, but I have a bit on my plate with The Poor Man's stat amp and this project

I have a couple speakers to build, a subwoofer, a dac or two, a speaker amp, and then maybe a CTH. Doesn't stop me from contemplating it! (or from picking up the parts....)
