I wouldn't put your DAC so close to the tubes...EMI can affect tubes. :o

Nice looking amp, Joseph!  :beerchug:

 

But, yea....get that modi off of the power supply.

Thank you, in what kind of ways can the EMI effect the tubes?

Will it cause interference/distortion/popping- no gain on the volume control?

Don't know if you read my posts yesterday, when I first powered the amp up I had all of these issues without any source connected to it (besides when I had the issue with the gain on the volume).

 If you would, please explain the problems this may produce so I know for myself. Thanks for the heads up. I only did this because I always stacked my SS equipment.

thats what was causing all that popping !! lol

nice joseph !!

Well, basically, Electromagnetic interference can effect other electrical components.

 

I am sure someone else can explain it much better.

post #10162 of 13945

and i was just joking about the popping !!

although i kinda thought you might not want the dac sitting right there, as i looked at my lyr sitting right on top

of my bifrost   lol

It can cause popping and distortion. I'd really get that DAC away from there.

Thanks guys, its off to the side now.

jaywillin, that was funny, but this is why I did it, because like I said I stack all of my equipment, like everyone else does. Is it not good to do this even with SS equipment, or is it just a chance you take with getting EMI? jaywillin, I also thought the popping/distortion was because of this, but even when I had the DAC out of the equation, it still happened. Thanks for the compliments and the advice!

DONE! Thanks for the advice/compliment.

Like I said, just thought it was ok because electronics are usually stacked. Thanks again.

No worries....tubes are different from shielded SS devices.

So was it actually ok on top o the power supply? 

The main concern was the tubes?

Thanks.

The RS1i seems to be really in favor of the Sylvania 5751 triple mica black plate, so far.

 

Been listening to it for about 5 hours now.....using a huge playlist of flac files.........its been a great night so far and the night is still young!

 

Long live Rock & Roll

 

 

Talk about great synergy!

 

 

 

How bout some ZZ Top - Pearl Necklace!

 

 

A little Robert Cray -The Forcast Calls For Pain......Song is killer with this combo!

 

Time for a little night glow.

 

 

Time for another beer and maybe a change to the TTVJ flat pads.
