The amount of LED indicators will probably change depending on how many are needed. I didn't make anything on the back but there will be a few rocker switches on the back on the unit; one for power, one for gain, and one for each the DAC and amp so you can turn either one off and on. Anything else we can vote on, or something.

 

 

 

Excuse the taskbar tray in the second photo. The top darker panel will be mesh or be perforated like on Schiit units for ventilation. If none is needed, the top will be flat and not have the area pushed inward.

 

So rocker switch for power on the back? I thought before you were saying you wanted a button on the front. Would seem easier to use. Personally I think it would be a lot more convenient to be able to switch I/O options from the from as well, but that's because in my setup I switch between headphones and speakers very often. Admittedly the minimalism looks aesthetically pleasing though :)

 

What kind of LED indicators would it need I wonder?

 

Also, what are the dimensions of the case supposed to be anyway?

It looks nice but as I can tell...NO ....the power switch on the back of the audio gd makes me cringe

I read up on this before you mentioned it.

Concur. Looks nice. Would be much more usable with some switches on the front.

Seriously. I can not be bothered to switch gain by going to the back and feeling my way across

Hm. Everyone has different wants/needs, different setups, but from a usability standpoint I think all the switches on the front would be the most flexible. I personally wouldn't care if gain was on the back, but power and I/O front side would be nice. I don't mind having everything on the front either though. I guess it's a matter of if Haibu wants to rebel over aesthetics, haha.

Yeah seriously, we need buttons. I don't care if Power is on the back as my desk allows me to easily reach the back but if the unit is under a shelf so there is a piece of wood above it or my monitor as my gd was a while back , reaching the back is VERY hard and annoying.

 

but hey guys remmeber...CUSTOM UNITS!! HECK YEAH!! gs1000.gif we don't all need holes in the same places!!jsadjfasf

 

this is what happens when you custom order baby!

 

Haiburi can do whatever he wants

Finished with today's portion of homework.

Still have to do Classical Mechanics tomorrow, but I finished the Analysis, Calculus and Special Relativity stuff today. (Well, there's also an optional assignment for Analysis. Not sure if I'm going to do it or not).
I've also got to practice for the upcoming Mechanics test. Probably not gonna be that hard, but it's best to practice at least a little bit.

Been working the entire time. And now I'll got to bed without even watching a single episode of anime. Good night.

Good day to you Rik

The pen is awesome. It's taking a bit of time to get used to it's stiffness, but its fine lines are excellent for mathematical writing. The grip on the pen is also much better than my previous one. And above all, a friend correctly described it with the words 'nerd bling'.
It's pretty. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

Haiburi can do whatever he wants

 

I didn't know if they could all be custom or not. Don't know if that complicates things for borisu at all.

 

My ideal config (not placing any expectations or demands here, just dreaming out loud):

 

Back:

-USB

-RCA I/O

-Gain selection

-Power chord/supply/whatever jack

 

Front:

-1/4" out, locking Neutrik

-Volume knob (w/ a small skirt and matte finish)

-Power on/off and LED

-Input selection

-Output selection

 

Non-shiny/glossy case.

 

The coolest looking amps to me are RWA and ALO Amphora.

It may not be feasible to get TOO different cases..

Option 1: Custom cases from China but with light modibility ability 

Option 2: Everyone design their own cases

 

Your tupe of case is pretty easy, my case is a bit close to it.

 

Locking neutrik is about $10 more but with such a cheap unit.. I guess you can? he already bought the jacks I believe so it has to be a full $10 full price payment.

 

My case was super $7 cheap so yeah. You should be fine I think

 

Well, next time borisu goes, see if there are wooden cases boxed like that or very finely finished metal ones:)

 

He last I checked can't engrave words on boxes though :/ You will need to do the metal engravings yourself if your university has one.

I can't wait for episode 15.

Make the knob and other stuff bigger. This isn't going to be a super large unit. Your sizes looks like that thing is HUGE!

 

Schiit Asgard size if not smaller. Some can't fit a large unit. And too large is bad. Medium space conservation should be used. My O2' uses no space conservation. it is in a box much bigger than itself. HEck, if done right, you may even be able to fit everything in mine

NO. NOT APPLE. AND DOTS AND A SILVER KNOB DOESN'T MEAN SCHIIT (literally, both ways).

 

I just did this quickly because I don't have any dimensions, so yeah, this will look odd in terms of proportions compared to the actual sizes.

I was a bit lazy and skipped that, but I could just put it on the back as a rocker switch if I felt like it in favor of minimalism. I don't find it in any way less practical because I'm going to be keeping this unit on my desk sitting right under the monitor next to the monitor stand, so I can just reach behind it and then turn it on or off (or adjust gain, etc.).

 

No idea what the actual dimensions are.

Okay, okay, I'll put some switches on the front, or Boris can just do it.

 

I'll do it quickly and then do my homework. I'm only putting in unit power though.

All of them? At best you'll be only getting me to put gain and power on the front. DAC and amp power can go on the back because you won't be constantly using DAC or amp only. I could say the same thing about gain too.

 

I have 2 styles of switches, one like the power button on the Maverick Audio Products or the button on the Schiit Bifrost. Choose (they both look fine to me. I guess the Schiit Bifrost styled button is less protruding).

THEN DON'T PUT IT SOMEWHERE ELSE BESIDES FOR THE TOP OF YOUR DESK (or a higher shelf that isn't too high).

Are we even going with input/output selection? I'd be glad to add it if we do.

 

Oh, that reminds me, either we go with a plastic or metal front panel. IT WILL HAVE A BRUSHED FINISH IN THE VERTICAL DIRECTION LIKE ON THE FRACTAL DESIGN ARC MIDI (computer case).

 

Also, I might move the LEDs so they aren't all just next to each other (looks clean though). I could do a button and the corresponding indicators (example: button to change gain and then the 2 LEDs for indicating high or low gain next to the button).

You say there is no inspiration but subtly there still is. Subconciously. Like when your school teacher made something and told you to make yourown in grade school but everyone made her exact same thing. ITs the same thing

 

meh. Ep 14 wasn't as well executed as the LN
