Do I detect some flaws on the right-hand bottom mounting hole?

Seems there are 2 spots. On at about 10 o-clock just on the edge and a spot inside on the bottom of the hole.

Also on the top right hole no the edge at 4 and 6 o-clock.

 

Otherwise I like it.

Nah.  Those are just impact craters from falling Xmas tree needles, pre wrap.  

 

I hear a train a comin'....

there is a tiny flaw there from when the anodizer racked the part. i did say near perfect. if not good enough, i would retire immediately

Don't listen to Wink, I think he was joking anyway:wink_face:.  This looks good to me  Now I wish I'd ordered silver . . . lol

I'm putting together another audio rack and I'm wondering how much headroom to allow for the BHSE and EL34s?  The 300b tubes on my ECBA get to 140* F at the very top of the tubes and this is no problem, even with very little (1/2") clearance.  I know the EL34s will get hotter, I'm just wondering if a couple inches of clearance will be enough.  Has anyone taken the surface temperature on the EL34s?  Thanks . . .

I had mine on a finite elmente rack with adjustable shelves.  At first I gave it 4" of clearance out of paranoia, but I adjusted it to about 1 1/2" when my power amp came in and it was completely fine.

perfect, thanks . . .

update coming soon once the panels have been laser engraved

What is 666 backwards?

(clue: see above post)

 

Ha! I'm now a HF millenial. Took long enuf.

You mean backwards and upside-down?

 

Congrats anyway. Hows your DIY BH going?

post #4543 of 5510

Does anyone in Southern California have a BHSE that would be interested in bringing it to a mini-meet this Friday, 1/3, in Irvine? I know it's a long shot because of the short notice, but we are looking to do an electrostatic amp "shoot out" and thought it would be more complete if we had a BHSE there too. Let me know if you know anyone who might be willing to participate with their BHSE.

 

We have a new prototype Russian electrostatic amp/DAC that we will be comparing.

 

Please PM me if interested.

 

Thanks,

Yeah, upside down. Meant to say that but dint think it was worth going back to edit it.

 

BH? Going? It's sitting in a box or three - half finished.

Had a heart attack a few months ago. Still recovering, doing rehab.

Possible additional surgeries in the future. Building amps is the last thing on my mind.

Thanks for askin!

I would think having a BHSE there is mandatory not optional. How can you do a proper shoutout without one?!
