sounds pretty good too. Once my HD650s get here I will do a head to head comparo between the gruBravo and the schiit M/M stack.

Thanks. It's OK for the first build, but there are many things I'll do differently for the next one (one thing being USB hole size, just much too big here). There's not really much to see on the back :)

Maybe I'll stick my SkeletonDAC under my Bravo.

I wonder what I could call it...?

But hey! I got a DIY amp too! It was done in 2 days (one for the amp itself and one for the case and bracket) a few years ago as my highschool graduating project. It's a simple 2x11W amp into a 5,25" position with in/out on a slot bracket.

 

 

 


It's based on a layout from the 90s so basically you could call it vintage biggrin.gif It's horribly built, you move a bit with the bracket's connection cable, and you lose one of the channels, the PCB isn't attached to the casing, and the worst - the PACB is painted to YELLOW! I... I have no idea what made me to paint it to yellow blink.gif

But I'm heading to re-build it into a better case, remove those useless bass'n'trebble knobs and maybe it will get a battery as power source. Yeah, nice plans, I love doing DIY things but it takes me years to begin.

Yes, it's a Bravo tube hybrid on top and a GrubDAC underneath.

Not a completed build but still...

 

A board for a stereo buffer based on the old (ancient?) BUF03 buffer. Some may know this as "Aunt Corey's buffered passive pre" or the Pawliw buffer :)

 

 

 

More detailed writeup in my blog :D

New enclosure for my tangent cmoy. Paudak body with mahogany top. Will have an aluminum access cover/base.

Tomorrow I will make cuts for the battery drawers and ac in connector and lacquer it.

I completed the re-cabling the Goldpoint 23 step attenuator using shields.  It passed the DMM test......now for music.   When the maple knob arrives this afternoon the project will be complete.

Attenuator works great and the knob came out exactly how I hoped it would.

Thank you !

 

I have to put a coat of lacquer on the knob tonight.

The grain should pop more.
