    New Millett Hybrid Maxed Amp

    I'll explain the bolded part. I left the buck converter connected to the power circuit as before, but powered a different pi with it. I then hooked a wall wart up to the Pi that is supposed to go to the amp. When I connected the RCA of the Main pi to the amp, there was no noise, even with the...

    New Millett Hybrid Maxed Amp

    I'm having some issues with my older Max. I didn't used to have any problems, but I have made some changes, and I'm not sure which one is causing my problem.   I'm hearing frequent static in my headphones. it is not consistent, sometimes it is very faint, sometimes it is loud, mostly loud...

    Tube Amp + Raspberry Pi + DAC build

    I forgot to mention that the router burned the headphone jack a little. I don't think it will be a problem after I sand and stain. The right hand side of the case (the Pi side) will be smaller. I was using the foam board to simulate where the side will be when I shrink it, although it is not in...

    Tube Amp + Raspberry Pi + DAC build

    No worries tomb! I have had a set in my drawer for several years, so I was used to seeing the splash of color, and wasn't expecting the white boxes. But I will just keep the old boxes around for nostalgia.   The one thing he emphasized is that he is very diligent about cleaning the pins of the...

    Tube Amp + Raspberry Pi + DAC build

    I did a little research into 3D printing and got started with Autodesk 123D. This is so much easier than Sketchup. I made a mockup of the back panel in about an hour, with YouTube tutorials (The Ben Heck Show FTW.) Much less time than by hand. Plus, I was able to model a few different layouts...

    Tube Amp + Raspberry Pi + DAC build

    Messed around and learned some basic functions in Google Sketchup. I know this is pretty rough, but I've never really used it before. Just wanted to play around a little bit.

    Tube Amp + Raspberry Pi + DAC build

    They used to have ground wires until I pulled the chassis apart yesterday. What I was trying to say was that anything soldered to these jacks breaks off very easily, which is what happened to the ground wires. Have you ever experienced a material that just doesn't take solder well? What do you...

    Tube Amp + Raspberry Pi + DAC build

    This is more like a very loud hum, which changes as I touch certain components. To me, sounds like a grounding issue. There is some of the scratchiness too, which does sound like the headphone noise I've heard before, only a little more extreme. We will see when it's all cased up. There's...

    Has anybody used a HiFiBerry as a high -end DAC?

    In my other thread, I mention my plans to incorporate a Pi with a tube amp in a single enclosure, probably a Millet Mofset. Is this DAC chip good enough, or would I be better off building a grubDac into my Millet build, and using the USB out of the Pi? Using this seems much simpler.

    Just got some B&W 685s! Help me make them sing! (Amp questions)

    Looks interesting, lots of customization options, but it gives the hint of "FOTM"

    Just got some B&W 685s! Help me make them sing! (Amp questions)

    No responses? Hmm, where is everyone? I'm still up in the air about what to do for my tube-lust... I'm considering a mapletree audio or decware switchbox, going from the record out on the cambridge to a tube pre, then switching the output to a solid state power amp... If I have to switch cables...
