My second built, a cMoyBB. Have been trying several opamps.

I know is a simple build but this is my second DIY and has taught me soldering skills and how to read a diagram.

Waiting for the Meier crossfeed parts, and after that, eSXtatA SS

σ11 is at 27V with a 30VA toroid. Filtered, double-fused, DPDT switched IEC inlet. Amphenol umbilical connectors. Neutrik RCA and headphone jacks. MMM has AD8610 all round, biased to 4.5mA. Output stage biased to 100-105mA. All electrolytics are Nichicon UHE/UPW. Pot on the left is configured as variable gain (2-12), but is currently shunted out of the circuit as I never use higher than 2 with my phones. Teflon SPC input wire, bog-standard copper hookup elsewhere.

And it is finally exactly how I want it

Yay ~ Another CMoy!




My first(ish) crack at one, my initial board had a problem with distortion in the left channel so failing to fix it I made another.


Case is a small Hammond that I've cut to length (I could have made it a bit shorter) with panels made with wood I happened to find on the side of the road.




~Please excuse the horrible picture quailty~




My first attempt was a lot neater underneath.

~ Starving Student 12AU7 ~




My second go at a Starving Student (first being the Beezar PCB kit)




I've used Ohmite carbon composite resistors, Vishay axial electrolytic and TAD "mustard" caps as well as a pair of JJ Valves.


I used star grounding as opposed to soldering the grounds to a plate.

Beautiful woodwork!

post #7316 of 9781
Very nice work, meme! I like that you used a star ground in there - a few more wires, but a great way to do it!

What kind of finish did you use on the wood?
post #7317 of 9781

Thanks for the compliments.

I just applied three of coats of regular oil-based clear satin varnish (Ronseal I think) and just lightly wet and dried between coats.

It's beautiful. I'd love to see some pics of the inside.
