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


I've noticed in some situations that a ground loop breaker can mess things up with the signal lock.

you are using spdif out of the m2tech? why not tap the i2s?

nice work though, youve gotta love those USB bulkhead connectors

If I tapped i2s I wouldnt be able to use the SPDIF mux. I also wanted to be able to remove the m2tech and use it for other applications.

hmm yes, but its not like the TP mux is the only option for switching sources, neither does modding the m2tech preclude you from using the spdif out. since its for someone else I totally get why you would want to keep it simple though

True, other options are available, but this is what the owner wanted. Keeping it simple was also a concern.

Its the Millett Hybrid Starving Student, home etched PCB, Nichicon Muse and Sprague caps, 12AU7 tubes...lexan enclosure. I built it tall to serve as a heaphone stand as well.

Good Job! 

 

About the PCB's, did you do the Solder Mask and Silkscreen layers too?

I've done a few myself but the copper traces will oxidize over time....
So I've kinda gone back to Pref-boards.

 

I'm currently making my own Custom IEM's 

just finished a silicone cast,

Maybe I can post some pics here if that counts as a "Build" smily_headphones1.gif

I just clean the copper with slightly used scotchbrite and coat with polyurethane...no silkscreen. I only etch my own so I can control the dimensions and shape of the boards. By all means let us see the IEMs

While this is not a headphone project, it is by far the biggest audio DIY project I have attempted. For the most part, they are finally finished. I have been working on these with most of my spare time over the past year.

 

What started as this:

Has become this:

These are Elsinore MkV speakers. The design is by Joe Rasmussen, the build is my take on the project.

 

For those interested or with far too much time on their hands, the entire journey has been documented with far too many photos and seemingly endless commentary by yours truly over the past year at:

And the requisite electronics porn (from the external cross-overs):

Dang, Jake! Them's awful purtty. What's driving 'em?

post #8699 of 9574

@ Jake

Nice speakers!!

 

Anyway, Here's a pic of my DIY CIEMs.

The don't look pretty like the professional ones, but works perfectly!

The drivers are from UE TF10's, bought them on Head-fi FS forums.
