The biasing instructions for these amps has posted too many times to count so just do a search for that. 

Wow.  Thanks! Even with device pinouts!

(Let's try this again.)

I want a DaVinci DAC.

Justin,

 

Mainly to keep my own expectations in check, I am wondering how things are going with batches 3 and 4.  I know a few weeks ago you indicated you had run into a problem with the aluminum for the face plates. 

post #3259 of 5512

I have custom ordered a special grade aluminum to try to kill that issue permanently.  Meanwhile, assembly will continue using dummy front plates.

Old panel on left, new on right

 

 

 

Since I ordered silver - I am glad to hear he has solved this issue.

Hello Justin

 

Nice to hear from you. Do you have now a more accurate picture of the date BHSEs ordered in Oct 2012 (mine, for instance!) could be delivered -with flawless aluminium, of course?

 

Regards.

 

Philippe.

Didn't you say a short while ago that you would stop bugging Justin? Seriously!

Heh, since that room was not wall to wall with tables holding nearly finished amps, I would think it best not to get any near term anticipation going.  He will be finished when you get your shipping notification.  I am just glad to be in the current batch.

this week i will be picking up the heatsinks, which is the last of the to-be-powdercoated enclosure parts needed.  they will get powdercoated then assembly can begin as the circuit boards are assembled and waiting.

Well, my last post was just a way to thank Justin for the news he provides to us all. My question about delivery dates was some sort of innocent add-on, like "By the way, Justin, why not talking about..."

 

Anyway, I'm sure Justin isn't bothered at all by my posts; in fact, I think he probably appreciates them ("someone in a distant country is thinking of me...")

Hello Bones13

 

I see from your profile that you're a doctor... You probably know that old persons like me (see my profile) quickly get deaf as time goes by. This is why I'd like not to wait too long to enjoy my K-01/SR009/BHSE combo.

 

Best regards

 

Philippe

 

P.S.: Considering your nickname, I wonder if you're a medical examiner or an ordinary dotor?

Then may I suggest you write to him directly instead of plugging up this thread. If you are worried about going deaf in the time it takes to get a Blue Hawaii made by a company well known for it's lengthy delivery times then I'm inclined to think you should consider purchasing a different product.

Oh yea, I am sure that Justin prefers to write many emails to many different people rather than posting an update here from time to time that many people can read.

 

Phil, I am very sorry to you are going deaf. This is a terrible thing for a music lover. Beethoven was only 27 years old when he started going deaf. I hope that you are somewhat older...
