Post pics of your builds.... - Page 7

I did a search and couldn't find the exact chrome cigarette case kloan used, but there are several nice ones that would probably work. Some are too thin, I think, but cases like this one should do nicely. You could hide the knob and jacks beneath the hinged lid to protect them when not in use.



You'd still have trouble taking it on an airline, but I like the cigarette case idea better than using mint tins. Plus, Altoids is getting touchy about selling amps housed inside their tins anyway.

You're kidding, right?

wow, a lot of positive feedback on my amp enclosure..

id point you in the right direction on where you could get them, but so far i havent managed to find a good source for them.. it was my plan to find out who the distributor was so i could get them wholesale, because id like to make these with pcbs and sell them on ebay, just to get a little bit of income, since im self-employed and need the cash..

btw, it costs $30 cdn at the store i bought it at..

my K1k amp, caseless atm







to get an idea of its size, inside the K1k's (K1k's modded with silver cable)



this thing is as minimalistic as it gets, and man does it sound good!!!

in each channel its basically just a BurrBrown OPA548 and four resistors... and then for the whole deal a TLE rail splitter and two caps as power filter caps (one for + and one for -) and a heatsink i pulled out of a busted comptuer PSU... they dont get hot at all, the heatsink feels maybe one or two degrees above room temp directly behind the OPA548's

here is the schematic even tho it isnt anything groundbreaking lol...



im still tweaking the circuit, and im thinking about perhaps getting some PCB's printed and selling them as a portable K1k amp if there is any interest... dunno

Hubble Pimeta

I just started to print my own boards, and rather than waste parts on a CMOY i did a Pimeta as my first.

There is something not quite right with the circuit though. Either the gain or some resistors are wrong. It doesn't amp very much. I have to double check the values.

I finally took some pics of my TPA6120 based amp and my Elma attenuator i use as a passive preamp for the speaker rig.

P2P lives:




The Elma that took so very long to build. Let's not do this again. All Beyschlag resistors.

Flecom, your pictures don't load, but I am intrigued by the description. I'd like to see pictures and schema.

Here is my X32 amp (balanced KG dynamic) with DAC1 combo.

Awesome, as usual! And it looks heavy enough to use as a doorstop for a bank vault!

doobooloo,

All I can say is, DAMN that is pretty!

Gorgeous, doobooloo. Love that in-the-dark shot. Great work on the amps--very clean wiring and simply unbelievable casework--you are the plastic and LED master.
