i wish i can build amps as clean-looking as that =(
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.
Right'o. The eight ohm taps on the Transcendars aren't really ideal for headphones.
Thanks!! I can be pretty obsessive when it comes to these sort of things
prototype of the "modded" cmoy done. dont mind the borrowed volume knob that looks awesome.
3.5mm and 6.3mm headphone jack
rca and 3.5mm jacks, gain switch
sorry about the internals, yeah its messy
all denko cables, BIG angela/audionote audio caps and the custom battery pack
another pic of the caps and its using opa2134... for now
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
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...
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.
