Thinking of building one of these to give myself a little project.
I read a review somewhere (can't remember which but was recommended on here) that suggests it has a better sound than the FiiO E11. The only thing putting me off is the case.
So rather than just buying a pre built one, I am toying with the idea of a DIY project and making case to my own tastes.
One things that strikes me is it is quite thick due to the use of 9V batteries and from what I can see from photos, the large capacitor.
The capacitor I can take off the board and mount on its side, but I would need an alternative to the 9V batteries.
Has anyone done something similar? Maybe a bank of 6 AAA's or are there any suitable mobile phone type batteries that could be used?
I am handy enough to be able to build an enclosure, assemble the components etc, but my electronics knowledge is very limited.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
