Thanks,

Slots don't work well for me. I did roughly the same for stators, and it was abysmally terrible. It takes "no bass" to a whole new level. I have no idea why. My test was done by replacing stators and nothing else, even used the old diaphragm so the test was controlled and nothing else was going on.

 

Here is what mine looked like

I can't really see what's wrong.  But I guess the open area might be too much.

 

If I were to do it, I would make the slots much smaller than the bars.

Hello,

 

This amp may have been dicussed later in the thread, but I wonder if there are boards and transformer available from somewhere. Or maybe an even better, simple DIY amp design?

And I wonder how it stacks up against the good ol' T1

The amp is already as easy as it can be built.  I hard wired the amp in just about one afternoon.

 

If you want other, better designs, you can go with Dr. Gilmore's.  His KGSSHV, for example,  is an excellent amp, and it's pretty easy to build too.

Unfortunately, I don't have a T1 to compare it with.  But I would say it's a good amp for the little money you spend to build it.

Simply an outstanding effort, Chinsettawong!

 

Thank you for sending your marvelous headphones in for measurement. I wouldn't have believed it had I not done the measurements myself.

 

Very, very nice!!!

You are most welcome, Wachara, really a stunning achievement. 

 

We'll take it to email from here...I've got to figure out how to get them back to you properly.

 

But I've got 'til Monday to take care of that, so I'll be enjoying a bit of your creation at my leisure over the weekend.

 

Thank you so very much for the opportunity to experience your headphones.

 

Outstanding job!

Hi Tyll,

 

If you like them, please enjoy them for a longer time.  I have no rush to have them back.  :bigsmile_face:

 

Thanks again for your kind review.
