Looks good.  The giant cap hanging off the back had a certain charm :bigsmile_face: but the new version seems like a move in the right direction.  Nice work.

What do the capacitors do for an amp? People have done mods to their iPod Videos by replacing the "caps" with larger ones, but I don't exactly know why or what they do.
post #9348 of 9591
A capacitor stores energy and can be thought of like a battery in a circuit.  That's a bit of an over simplification, but it's a start.  
 
Capacitors play different roles depending on where they are in the amplifier circuit. Among other things they may be used to smoothing or filtering current, provide energy storage for times of peak demand, or acting to block DC as a coupling capacitor.  
 
I know how this works, the minute I post an answer like this some of the really smart guys are going to chime in with a far better explanation, so just wait for it!  ;)

Wow, that looks really nice. Great job on that!

Added new back plane (polished 6061-T6):

Output selector

Input selector (not implemented)

Speaker binding posts (upgraded OPT's)

Bias adjustment jacks

Very nice! Were you able to get rid of that hum problem you were experiencing? 

post #9356 of 9591

to be determined

After tons of help from Avro_Arrow, and tons of dumb questions on various forums...

 

I present, the Twisted Pear Ventus EZ

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These are actually the first pictures of a completed Ventus EZ I have seen online, I wasn't able to find any previous pictures of this amplifier for whatever reason

Its built with a Twisted Pear LCBPS, and an ALPS RK27, which is stylishly hot glued to its platform ;)

 

 

Case was cut with an Epilog Laser Cutter at school, I designed each piece individually, and since I haven't seen much case design, I figured it'd be cool to post a few pictures of the files in Illustrator aswell

 

 

 

 

Sorry if I uploaded way too many pics

The more pic's the better.

Great job.  Naturally I love two-tone !

 

I couldn't tell, is the diamond pattern on the side cut through?

Very, very, nice.

 

EDIT.   It is all the way through !!!

Awesome!

Where did you get the square rings around the Neutrik jacks? May be very well useful for some of the stuff I'm doing.
