    A Socially Unacceptable Audiophile Addiction

    What? No mention for speakers? Not to mention all the power cables, filtering boxes, carbon fiber wall socket plates, and cable risers people tend to buy.

    Wiring a transformer to a CK2III

    Wow, I don't know what to say. I'm going to go commit sudoku now. Completely forgot to check for a datasheet. Er, what direction is that diagram looking at the transformer from. The bottom?   When they say apply 115v across 6 and 5, that means a voltage difference of 115v across 6 and 5...

    Wiring a transformer to a CK2III

    Naked women.   Last minute check before I set everything on fire: Is the wiring in the picture in the first post correct?   EDIT: A thought occurs: The little dots mean something. For example, if I'm doing my reading correctly, I've got the wires backwards.    Also, am I only...

    NYS231 guide

    You could just use a multimeter to find out.   Last I checked, the left post is left, the right post is right, and the bottom is ground. Simple as that.

    Wire broke off from armature, possible to fix?

    Aren't those the Super.fi 3 rebrands? I had this happen to me too, when the cable housing broke off from the earpiece. If the wires broke off from the connector, then it's not too hard to get them back on. If the wires broke off from the armature side, then you're going to have to disassemble...

    Gamma-2 (γ2) DAC Thread

    $20, maybe? But you make up for that by requiring an external power supply. It's just simpler to go full++.

    y1 gamma-1 DAC

    Yes, from Mouser, but I was talking about my BOM sheet. I had copied over U9D as U4D to the order form because I thought they were the same. Woops.

    y1 gamma-1 DAC

    Yeah, the voltage holds stead at ~3.3V on pin 12. Since I'm sure I've got the right part, then it's damaged as you say. I wonder if it'd do anything if I swapped U4D and U9D?

    y1 gamma-1 DAC

    This is through coaxial. Windows 7, 16 bit, 48kHz (RMAA, DAC, and Line In), Directsound Realtek Digital Output, MME Line In. I double checked everything, and this time I'm sure the output format is correct.   Here's the whole report. I'd test USB, but I'm pretty sure I killed U1U at some...

    y1 gamma-1 DAC

    See, I built my y1 sometime during the summer, and found it incredibly bassy. I never really looked into it as I got rather busy when the term started, but recently it really started bothering me, especially with me beginning to put together M^3 BOM (how come Mouser has the worst selection of...
