A2P + Fostex, my new favourite combo. Easily.

Beautiful picture as usual woodcans, what a great combo!

just had a talk with Jan Wuesten from AskJanFirst

 

http://www.askjanfirst.com/eindex.htm

 

or

 

http://www.die-wuestens.de/

 

he offers a small se output transformer for DL tubes, and he can offer custom made SE output transformers

 

- exactly based on the specifications of the tu-05 and the existing output transformers

- based on the physical size we want

- so individually making the best possible output transformer that fits within the maximum available size available in the standard or extended case

 

i did not fully understand the explanation i got for the transfomer core, wires and material he mentioned that would be used as i am a newbie in this area, but the resulting quality should be excellent related to the size

 

- cost will be around 100 €  per single output transformer

was thinking about how to absorb / dampen the high frequencies possibly emitted by the intenal power supply boards (switching power supplies) through the internal power lines / wires for example using ferrite beads, but today found this DIY power line cable from eupen:

 

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2


the wires are shielded with ferrite, so how to say self absorbing higher frequencies, whether induced or transmitted. will use the wires for the internal power lines.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ferrit technology from Eupen Cable
This technology is based on high quality Ferritbase material. Eupen made a special mixture with Polymer and a large amount of Ferrit powder (up to 90%). This is extruded onto the Copper conductor and is called EMC/COM.
The Ferrit powder ist electrically non conductive but it has a very interesting magnetic characteristic. Ferrit is a ferromagnetic material and inside a magnetic alternating field it is constantly antimagnetized. The magnetisation happens with hysterisis and in each cycle it absorbs EMI field Energy and is converted to the enviroment as heat. This becomes more and more as the frequency rises. The Ferrit layer on the conductors attenuates high frequncies because their energy is absorbed from the Ferrit powder. This has a double action. It attenuates high frequeny interference that moves on the conductor and shouldnt interfere with the enviroment and at the same time it attenuates interference from the enviroment that should get in the conductor.

have you seen this $999 DAP (DSD; 24/384 DXD ;192 Gb, OLED 5" screen...) ?  Will be great with the TU-05 ... if it has line out .

today the modified standard transformers arrived:

 

 

here you see the size with the standard tu-05 case. but i think they could fit in the extended housing if you extend the side panel with two transformer covers:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

 

will test them, hope they are good, they were only Euro 75,-- a pair!

 

last weekend i made a tool to bend aluminium and metal plates and today used it to make a front panel to be used while testing components (lousy quality, don't have a detailed look):

^ Looking forward to that DAP. Been using the hifi m8 his week with my 3003's, that is a glorious combo. I hope tonight to have some time to use its line out with tu-05.

Line out ??  the Hifi-M8 has a real line out ??

post #2664 of 3704
I read on the m8 thread that supposedly gain set to 2 and max volume is a line out equivalent.

GG, That is looking great mate! I am so glad it is all starting to come together!

Also, just a note if your not on Facebook. Shikada San is moving to new premises at the moment so if there are delays from him communicating you know why, also he has a new email address..

after having disassembled my amp i really missed it (and the music), so this evening i reassembled the amp:

 

 

so now it's time to relax and to listen to some music!

post #2667 of 3704
Wow! Incredible, what is the black shield over the tubes for GG?
post #2668 of 3704
this is just the reversed tube panel of the original case i used to mount the tubes on the wooden plate.
post #2669 of 3704

The Phillips DF96 - Mullard 3S4 combo is stunningly extended, clear, crisp and airy. Thanks for the advice & finding these tubes, Ian.

 

Continue to enjoy your project & photos, GG.

My friend Analog Paper Tube Headphone Amp TU - 05 special Edition

Colour : champagne Gold
Special request : 6,3 mm headphone connector
4 Pin Balance connector
Because if these 2 connectors now the body from TU - 05 is longer than stock

Congrats Bohringer for your new SE TU - 05 , looks so beautiful
