Blue Light Special CMOY

It seems like there was a rash of negative posts about CMOY amps over in the amps forum, so I decided to see how far I could take a simple wall-powered cmoy. I also wanted an excuse to use one of the aluminum stomp box cases. With a 24V wall supply and OPA627s, it packs a little more punch than your average battery powered cmoy.

Nothing extravagant, but I like it.

My first post Hi everybody !
Beautiful - I'm a big fan of minimalism!

Edit: Anybody interested in building their own enclosure really ought to take a look at DIAR's web link. It is one of the finest descriptions of how to build a case that I've ever seen!

DIAR, beautiful work there, congratulations. One question: why such a big case and extension shafts? It seems that for just two switches and an attenuator you could have made it much smaller. Did you simply want something that looked more substantial?

Anyway, welcome to head-fi and sorry about your wallet.

Thanks for kind words
Great designs here. I really like the caramel box enclosure

No crosstalk. Not one bit. I did the wiring the hard way and used coaxial cable to prevent any crostalk or interference. It was worth it.

I made the enclosure a bit bigger than was necessary for a few reasons:
1. If I feel the need for volume remote control, there is enough room for Bent Audio remote control unit. Unfortunately the system is very expensive.
2. It looks better
3. I'm working on a tube preamp and I wan't all my enclosures to be pretty much similar also in the future.

This seems to be a great forum. I've been mostly on Finnish forums and in DIYAudio. At the moment I concentrate on modding my CDP and. I'm building two different regulators for Tentlabs XO clock next week. Modding would be impossible for me without these forums.

So much to do and so little time
