Is anyone building the KGSSHV? - Page 21

Thanks. The buzz is now gone. I am not sure where the interference came from redface.gif

El-cheapo lamp dimmers are some of the most evil devices you can imagine. The noise they

can put on the AC line is just amazing.

 

Buy the high end lutron dimmers.  Back to back mosfets, full wave, microprocessor controlled

and automatically adjust for forward or reverse phase control when driving high voltage led's

and other nasty loads.

 

Every single dimmer in my house got upgraded to RA2 and have not had any interference

problems since. There are non RA2 versions that are exactly the same thing.

Well, it is the game room's light.

My son was playing XBox with the room lights dimmed.

Easily reproduced, and easily fixed!

I started gathering more parts for my build. I figured the case I built wouldn't be up to snuff for time and effort this is working out to be. I was about to pull the pin on one at this Siliconray site but for some reason they like to ask you to pay shipping twice and not even by mistake. The nice one was about $300 all together and a perfect size. After spending ridiculous amount of time on the web looking for a nice case I ended up rolling the dice on a game from this site

Hiendking.com. At a grand total of $169 I took a blind chance that it is big enough and I will actually get it. The faceplate looks like one of the nicest off the shelf enclosures out there.  http://hiendking.com/studio-300-height-120-depth-breeze-aluminum-chassis-p-3551.html    

Does it look like it will be big enough if you had to guess?

If its 120mm height, I’d say proportionally its very similar to the Modushop 3U 400mm case which is a perfect size.

Pity the site lacks a detailed description of any kind confused_face%281%29.gif.

Is anyone building the KGSSHV? -  Yes there are new builders coming forward.  I have also been enthused by these posts.  Thanks to all for sharing your experiences.  

My build is getting into its stride  - I have most of the parts now.  I am just about to buy pcbs for the onboard heatsink version - if anyone wants to join in and order a set please pm me.

 

PEEK screws- does any one have  6 or so for the heatsink which they would be willing to sell me please?

Screws arrived thanks Justin.  I have nearly all the parts now.  Really looking forward to building my KGSSHV. 

 

Just about to order circuit boards.  Last call for anyone who wants a set!

What changes are necessary when the power supply is positioned in other case and connected with umbilical cords? Adding any capacitors or resistors? Adding low voltage power supplies inside the amplifier case?

post #311 of 483

None really, just keep the umbilical as short as is possible.

I’ve finished my KGSShv and have at last been able to listen to my SR-507.  The amp has run for 10 hours so far and I have listened to it for the latter couple of those.  It’s certainly working well.  I have heard some beautiful music already.  Thanks to members who so kindly helped with advice and offers to supply parts.   It’s been an enjoyable build.

After the dust settles on this I might do another, in a different format.

Nicely done! If I may ask, what are the measurements of the case?

post #314 of 483

Hi AnakChan!

 

Thank you, I am pleased with the way it has turned out.  Credit to the designer as it goes together well and works!

 

 

The case is 435 wide by 400 deep 2U high.  The front panel is 450 x 90 x10. From the Modushop range.

Thank you. I'm waiting for my boards at the moment, thx to Lil' Knight and to AlwaysHungry and will be pinging them for help during the build. I hope you don't mind if I pop a few questions your way over the next few months when I get my kit.

 

I'll check out Modushop now (& when I get home will pull out the tape measure). I don't have a lot of space and therefore trying to see various build designs. Unfortunately, I've only heard of (Kevin's??) smallest KGSSHV but never seen pix.
