    Top Shelf Solid State with HD800s

    Introduction - I've been looking forward to this day for over a year. It all began with Jason's announcement of a 'statement' amp way back in, what, 2011 or 2012 (?). At that point, I didn't even own HD800s, so I had no plans in motion, but I knew I needed to keep up with this project. Later I...

    Bryston BHA-1

    DFW Meet Jan 23 2010 Impressions

    As expected from the interest thread, this meet was better attended than 2009, both by people and equipment. I got a chance to hear several legendary items for the first time. First of all, I'd like to thank Alex for hosting the meet and all the regulars that make this meet possible. I was...

    Looking for help; non-wallwart power.

    I'm doing some part picking for my first assembly and came across a speed bump. I'd like to avoid the wallwart, but also be as inexpensive as possible. As I'm new to all of this I'm getting a bit confused. First I guess I should tell you what I'm building. It will be a Pimeta with y1 DAC in...

    First project ideas, amp/dac/psu in 1 small box

    Well not technically first because I plan to make some RCA ICs as my first project.. The idea is something like a Pimeta, Gamma 1 (or Bantam, or other) USB DAC, and a small psu housed in something small, geared for SR80 (my father in law's headphones). He uses his headphones directly out of...
