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.

I've had protos of all three, and as far as interference goes, they're not bad. The Sunrise was a bit noisy when I first got it but Jeremy did some minor mods following my comments which seems to have cut it out. Never had it with Horizon or Ember and after mods, it also stopped with the Sunrise.

Ember would be good in a box. It generates so little heat. I guess Sunrise and Ember could be attached to external heatsink.

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.

 

Peace

Sounds like a plan.  I like the idea of the acrilic top and I prefer to have the power switch in front.  
An all clear case sounds good too.  Get to work, now!!!

+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?

just curious if anyone experienced any problems with EF shielding when their smartphone is near their project ember?

Not for me, my smart phone is not smart enough to emit phone calls let alone EF.

Only when the phone is beside it. Also depends how far away the mast is.

how close is "besides it?" directly against it? semi-near it? on the same table? in the same room?

 

lol :tongue_smile:
