gawdd i'm soo jealoussss!!!
thanks for that informative description :)
I've enjoyed reading this thread, sounds like a winner of an amp and a loser of a banned techboy lol
I have a few "open" amps (posts and plexi) and as such my preference would be a closed in case for the ember. not to sound crazy lol but in my mind I can picture a black box with a channel for a slider lid ( for lack of a better way to put it) that can slide in on top from the rear with a cut out tube hole and perhaps a few vent holes (lid made of plexi glass) with a tube cage attached. more protected, less interference perhaps and still can see the parts.
speaking of interference, how it is with the ember?
I have NO clue where I could find a case to fit this thing. has anyone actually put it in a case? if so please a linky to purchase page of site that sells it.
thx ian, connie.
good news on interference, or should I say lack there of ? hehe
case. that is somewhat like I was thinking, (and actually the photo that gave me the idea :P )
just picture that black top in photo being clear plexi that could slide into top and the main case having sides . I think that would look friggin awesome actually :D
perhaps I should hit up "mr wizzard" over at DIYAH for the source and dimensions of this case.
if I can obtain this info I will share it here for others.
+1 on TRANSPARENT case!!!! that would be ballerrr status
all I could get so far is that case was sourced about 25 or 30 years ago, and the tube cage is a custom job. still working on getting dimensions, will share them once I have them , or should if say when AND IF i have them :)
perhaps those that have one here an share the dimensions of the pcb, to start from there?
and of course Mouser has a full line of boxes, http://www.mouser.com/Enclosures/Enclosures-Boxes-Cases/_/N-5g3p
So when can we expect the proto type?
how close is "besides it?" directly against it? semi-near it? on the same table? in the same room?
