Corda Cross-1

I believe I was just in time to catch the very last two PCBs for the Corda Cross-1 from Jan Meier, but he did not have any faceplates remaining. I decided to engrave my own by modifiying the original Corel Draw files for the faceplates (again, provided by Jan Meier) for a Hammond 1455N1601BK enclosure. They came out wonderfully!


6-32 tapped machine screws from Ebay


Changed the Stereo/Crossfeed graphics. Notice the increasing size of the "dots" for the Bass and Treble


I made it easier for myself by indicating which switch was which in plain english


Long shot of the back


I wanted to make it more of a Denon feeling for the back

More engraved cases to come...!

mb3k, the panel lettering and graphics look very professional. Can you describe in more detail on how it was done?

Looks like Laser Etching to me. Very nicely done.

The post was worded a little misleading. I designed them with CorelDraw at home and then got them laser engraved at the University I attend.
The process is very neat but simple, working just like a laser printer but with a 'welder-type' laser beam that just took off the thin layer of the black anodized alum. It was amusing when the operator engraved the wrong side of some of the faceplates - I even emphasized that she should only engrave the side where the countersunk holes are.

Thanks mb3k, very cool! It definitely helps to have access to university facilities like that.

Nice job, AK!

What DAC kit is that?

You have a shield between the transformer and the PCB, did your custom transformer cause any noise to be picked up when you remove the shield?

It's the DAC101, as listed in my sig. AK, did you get the board with the chips already on it?
