Bet you don't see too many of these on here!
Me and two friends are making ourselves a pair of Pluto's each. We a) can't afford b) haven't got the room for the Orions, but maybe one day, in my case anyway, so we're going to sewer pipe it up in style and see how we fare with Siegfried's smaller, yet equally well-received Pluto design. This will be the 2.1 revision, using the late-2011 boards, which use more readily available parts. The intention is to copy the reference design 95% accurately, with the only changes being more or less cosmetic (a nicer looking base unit, woofer basket and some paint/vinyl wrap to make it look pretty).
This is obviously very early days, as so far we've
1) Ordered a set of plans and 6 boards from Linkwitz Labs - they've arrived here in the UK (no customs charges, hurrah!). The Orions are active speakers as all the amplification is contained within the base unit of the speaker, using very high quality components.
My friend has a decent camera so is doing all the pics:
2) we had a 40% code for one electronic components supplier outlet, mostly the more expensive parts of the board and have ordered those. The majority of bits and bobs for the boards we've yet to order. The 'third guy' is kindly doing all the soldering as he's a whizz at it.
I would also like to note that Google Docs is VERY helpful, as we have a shared online doc all three of us can access which is kept up to date as far as what's been ordered, what we need to order and how much of it, who's paid for what and so on. Being able to change in inside your web browser is a great time-saver.
Obviously updates will come as and when parts arrive and we can think of interesting ways to photograph them!
