I built a Pete Millet Jonokuchi and an AMB ß22/σ22 set and have 10+ years soldering experience. I'm all for a new challenge, so I'd like to toss my name in the hat. Thank you for the opportonity!
I'm 17, but you could say I've soldered a couple of things together. No portable amplifiers, though. In fact, I have no amp right now to pair with my DAC, so this giveaway would be really beneficial to me.
DIY experience :
Audio : Built a few audio filters and crossovers during learning stage of soldering .
Modded my Altec Lansing MX5021 speakers.(involves re-soldering major capacitors,installing op-amp sockets and recabling etc.)
Repaired my Clabs cmoy amp .
Have built a few other small electronics projects as part of current Electronics engineering course and two major projects based on GSM modems and micro-controllers .
Would be interested in the DIY kit only if its of practical use to me , as in can be used with my current Denon AH-D5000 headphones or RE-262 earphones which have high impedance and need some power to be driven to their best .
Please join me in, I have DIY skills and if they aren't enough we have master DIY builders here to help me out.
We've built amps like the TTVJ Hybrid Minimax and replaced the capacitors on our C&C X02 amps.
We also create our own LODs and ICs and mod headphones into different recables and input jacks.
For instance, recabled a Grado into single-ended detachable cable input.
I see there are 3 types of the amp, how do we know which one is which?
My son (11) a budding audiophile (who loves ac/dc) is currently learning to solder on circuit boards. After watching me work on audio stuff and helping me solder boards on his RC cars he got a am/fm radio build kit and loves to solder. he also recently learned to use a multi-meter (kinda new for me too).
It would very cool help him build his first amp!
Thank you for the opportunity
I'm currently in college for computer engineering and have been bit by the DIY bug bad. Last year a built a minimax, recabled my k601s, and made a couple of cables for my system. I bought a digital, temperature controlled iron and have gone nuts soldering recently. This summer I've built an opus dac from twisted pear, which included a dual differential dacs, ballsie output stage, and a metronome arsc, and have the parts for an EHHA incoming. On top of minor things like repairing car key fobs when the battery holder had come un soldered and repairing ripped cabled from my compute'rs microphone.
There are three kits：
1. MRK1: Modfly RA1 DIY Headamp Kit,
2. MCK1：Modfly Cmoy DIY Headamp Kit,
3. M47：Modfly 47 DIY Headamp Kit.
