Alright, my bank account is drained, and I have started my first major DIY project (aside from stereo restorations):
I'm building an AMB M^3 with a sigma11 PSU. I'll keep this thread updated as a build log/blog of the project, and also to hopefully ask any of the questions I may end up having.
9/16: Parts ordered. Parts ordered from AMB and Mouser, still need to order the transformer, headphone jack, and case hardware.
Now for my first set of questions: is 5x gain going to be good for the HE-400?
Any suggestions for an affordable, attractive case for the M^3? If not, I'll build my own (steel bottom panel, aluminum front & back, wooden sides and tops)
If the S11 and the M^3 boards are in the same case, does earth/ac ground go to the case, and the other grounds stay insulated from the case? What is the proper, safe way to ground the case?
What is a good part number for the terminal blocks? I haven't been able to find plain, screw type terminal blocks anywhere
