Just need to replace the output transformer with an appropriate one.

Or even better: Use two output transformers and a toggle switch to select between "Speakers" and "Headphones"

 

But either ways, it's a very good looking build. I love how the color scheme was meticulously respected. beerchug.gif

Right'o. The eight ohm taps on the Transcendars aren't really ideal for headphones.

263

 

 

rca and 3.5mm jacks, gain switch

263

 

sorry about the internals, yeah its messy

all denko cables, BIG angela/audionote audio caps and the custom battery pack

263

everything "missing" is underneath hehehe...

 

smooth, warm, musical, can drive 600ohm monsters at 10 o'clock, can drive yamaha orthos about the same volume level as the 600 ohm headphones, approx more than 30 hour battery life, and it has a charging circuit =D

 

now time to use those blackgate caps =D =D

^ Lookin' nice! But not quite portable...?

With that size, you may as well use the Obj2 circuit. (which probably sounds better than a Cmoy.)

post #8678 of 9592

its half the size of an o2. maybe a few cm taller but thats it. maybe the same size of a stepdance. the pic is zoomed in thats why it looks big haha

this is a 12AU7 version of the Millett Hybrid Starving Student. I etched the board and installed it in an alumium enclosure. It sounds pretty good with my HD-600s. Just need a better knob...

That looks good Vixr - very clean build. Is that volume pot free spinning though? or is that sucker tacked down somehow?

its just a standard blue velvet pot...it is fastened with a hex nut, you can see one of the flats just behind the knob. Thanks for the kind comments guys.

Hah - well done. I love the solution of using the M2tech USB to SPDIF to add that capability to the box. Nice work overall.

Very nice build,  Why the switch to turn off the Ground loop breaker?
