The SRM-1/MK2 re-cap was a success, The SRM-717 repair and re-cap went well. The sound I'm getting is amazing but I hear the rabbit hole goes much deeper. It's time for a new project. Something harder.
My objective is to learn more about electronics through these projects. I've chosen to build a KGSSHV because its better than what I have so I'll use it and there are large amounts of information on it. There are easier projects out there that realistically make more sense for my skill level but they don't excite me. This does and that makes all the difference. Please bear with me while I make mistakes that will likely horrify you and ask questions that only a novice would have to ask.
Here's the plan...
I'm starting this thread to keep a record of what I'm doing. I plan to write it in such a way that If I'm making or I am about to make a mistake someone can call me on it and so that in the future when some other novice decides that they want to make the same journey they can see what I did from beginning to end along with the mistakes I made and the questions I had.
I'm going to keep this simple. 63/37 Eutectic solder, standard wire, the same pessante dissapante case everyone else is using, exact recommended capacitor values... In other words. Nothing cute. Not this time. This is the slightly harder but still basic build of the KGSSHV (500V with Off-Board heat sink).
I have a set of boards that I received from Lil Knight version .6 for both the power supply and the two amp boards.
There are at least two bill of materials sheets running around this is the one I've been able to locate so far. If anyone knows of a better one let me know.
It is going to be at least a couple weeks before I even order the parts I'm still in the information gathering stage of this exercise and I fully expect this project to last weeks if not months once I do order the parts. There may be times I disappear as well. I'm starting a new company and It gets my attention before anything else so I may still be working on this next year but It will get done.
Here goes nothing...
