did you test the opposite side? seeing the pictures you and ianmedium have posted, you both place the tu-05 side panel side with the switches on top.
i did just the opposite, placing the side with the switches on the bottom side because the side with the switches is also the side where the output transformers and other components are mounted, assuming this side is where most of the resonances can be absorbed!
would be very interested in your results doing the same.
I would love to try, but my TU-05 is connected to my HEX dac and the hassle of plugging and unplugging cables is too bothersome at present. I will try on Monday when I move things around a little.
Very impressive solution Ian, and surely NOT Amateur at all !! I am tempted to use it also. I may just try to replace may be your by some "nicer" ceramic cone to try.
buy, is the the granite support base really necessary ? it is indeed the most heavy and inconvenient part for building/moving around id needed ! Have you tested your solution without it, just the big 3/4" slab of marine ply as a base ?
Also van you post a profile picture of the solution that show the layers under the 3/4" slab of marine ply ( Granit - blocs of Blu-Tac)
Finaly, Spkrs01 mention a " Shakti Stone " ! what is it ? is it like the granite you are using or some more exotic/hard to find stone ?
Yep, but... no holes... :-)
Hey ianmedium, you said that the mullard dl92's are the exact same thing as the philips miniwatt dl92's right?
So would these be ok?
