Hi, I am about to order the parts to build the M3.
I have a few questions before I order and any help will he greatly appreciated.
First of all I want to make the M3 to have two outputs. one 3.5mm (1/8) and one 6.35mm (1/4).
The questions is: HOW can I do this? Do I need to buy any extra parts to make this happen? And what would be the basic steps to do it?
And how can I have a Continuously variable bass boost and Continuously variable gain? What do I need, how can I do it?
That is the most important thing I need to know. But if someone can help me with those other ideas I've got it would be great!
Well, I thought on changing the OPAMP to a OPA-Moon or OPA-Sun (http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/diy/OPA/OPAEN.htm) but, I dont know if this is possible, and if it is, do I need to do any changes to the M3 or buy more or different parts for it to work with this OPA-Moon or OPA-Sun. And is there any other better or similar OPAMP I can use to replace the original AD8610AR OPAMP? I read that the OPA627 was good but I know nothing about it.
I would like to add crossfeed to the M3, the AMB site directs me to http://www.tangentsoft.net/audio/mlxfeed.html and it all looks easy, I just need to buy the Crossfeed and hook it up to the M3 but, how do I do this??? And more importantly, Do I require any different or extra parts for this? because if not I can just do this when the amp is finished as it is an extra.
And two simple but significant questions, I am going to build the power supply too, the sigma 11. Is there a problem if I put it in the same enclosure of the M3? I am making my own enclosure out of wood so size is not a problem.
And, what input and output jacks do you guys recommend me?
Any suggestions? Recommendations? Ideas?
Thanks a lot guys, awesome community. Anything will help.
As soon as my parts arrive I will make a progress diary and upload it with pictures.
Oh! And by the way I plan to connect it to a y2 full++ and use it with my AKG Q701.
