    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    Nope, dont waste money on that stuff. Just get good quality solder from a company like Kester, MGChemicals , etc

    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    Definitely. I got the Dave for a steal of a price with the stand, that's why I bought it. Otherwise, i would have never even thought of getting one. I'm definitely not a believer in super high-end DAC's. The Crack in itself makes the output from any DAC a total treat to listen to.

    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    Did try it a few times, but didn't really find any audible change vs the Dx7s which is what i was using the crack with.

    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    These are totally worth it! And add so much more value to the crack and expand the tube rolling options! Had them in my Crack build from some time back -

    [WTB] AUNE S6 / Topping DX7s / Topping Dx7

    Hey guys, Looking for an Aune S6 or a Topping Dx7s. I'm willing to cover half (or full depending on asking price) of the shipping costs if being shipped from the US. Goes without saying import duty will be my responsibility. Thanks for looking !

    Nope there is a resistor in line with one of the terminals on the ammeter. If i remember correctly its a 68Ohm resistor in series on the positive terminal of the meter. Its pretty well heat shrunk, so hard to notice.

    Did you check if the new meter has a resistor soldered in line?

    Modern Balanced Tube Amp Build

    Oh trust me there are going to be many! Now that i maxed out my MKVI+, i really am itching for the next DIY build. Are those Teflon sockets btw? I recently used Teflon Octal and Nine pin sockets and oh boy are these amazing. Gotcha, on it!

    Modern Balanced Tube Amp Build

    I really want to start building one. But im moving soon, so ill probably do it around the end of July. Will riddle you and McCurwen with questions lol In the mean meantime, how much did the parts cost? (Minus the cost of the chassis)

    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    Its odd for TKD pots to be defective. Does it always happen at the same positions? I had a similar issue in my MK VI+, but it went away after a while, turned out one of the solder joints was cold after all the mods. I had to go over all joints close to a power tube as the voltages around that...

    The blue PCBs seem to be of much poorer quality than the newer black PCBs. Even after a lot of care while pulling the larger caps and a few of the smaller resistors , I pulled 3 pads. On the amp with the black PCB , 0 pads got pulled no matter hoq many times I soldered / applied heat to the...

    Something interesting I came across today while talking to a friend who works as engineer in the USAF, All of Tlthe MILLS resistors are made my VISAHY / DALE. MRA5 / MRA12 are exactly the same as the 5W/12W Dale's (black / brown doesn't matter) . Vishay / Dale produces a RS (basic variant) and...

    I have ONON SPDT's / ON ON DPDT's. Along with a bunch of 3PDT'S and 4PDT's. Arent we just trying to add resistors in parallel ? So a Single pole should just work fine? The pictures on the first page arent exactly clear. From what i can see, we are just switching and dropping the resistance...

    Gotcha, yeah thats the plan. I have 125V 6A / 250V 2A switches. Should be plenty. @klnglim If you can the board outside (in better lighting and take a few pictures of the board, i can try and tell you which pads will need fixing with a wire.

    LOL That 0 dB is because the DX7s is in DAC mode. And my Music players are all set to 50% volume with windows being set to 75%. But yeah really careless on his part. There is a reason why i never let people drink around my electronics or even let anyone into the room if there is a party at my...

    So stuff happened, my friend spilled beer on his amp xD Tripped breaker and a full disassembly later, he ended up buying my amp minus my parts and we ended up salvaging most of the high end upgrades from his board and i installed those on my board. All in all after about 8 hours of work and a...

    Audio-GD NFB-11.32 & NFB-11 (2014) (Delivery & Impression Thread)!!!

    Interesting, from what i understand that seems to be related to the buffer or the latency (guessing here) ...But on all my systems i used the 11.28 with, i never had that issue. @SpiritBob Can maybe try changing the output bitrate etc and resintall the drivers. That would be my first steps to...

    Audio-GD NFB-11.32 & NFB-11 (2014) (Delivery & Impression Thread)!!!

    I dont see any switch at the back of the NFB 11.28, other than the power switch - I never had that issue that @SpiritBob mentioned, but still curious.

    Are these voltages with the default caps? One thing i would definitely do is check if the via's are not damaged.
