    Thank you.  It sounds fantastic.  Next week it's going to live at his place, so in the meantime I'm trying to get as much enjoyment out of it as I can.

    Post pics of your builds....

    I mounted it that way based on Tangent's recommendation in the assembly guide section of the YJPS website.   Quote:   This puts the AC in the far left corner of the case, farthest away from the amplifier board.   Edit: and thanks for the compliment

    Alcaudon and jlefley, inspirational builds.  Here is my contribution - although not as refined as what has been appearing in this thread lately.  It is an M cubed powered by a YJPS.  The MMM is configured with variable gain from about 4 to 14.  More photos can be found in this album.

    Good sound card (coax) as transport for Gamma2

    I asked because I think the gamma 2 usb input is limited to 16 bit. Did you build the entire gamma 2 including the USB board, or did you only build part of it? I think the gamma 2's usb is an option that should be considered, since you (may) already have it. Quote: Originally...

    Looking for a DIYer friendly DesktopAmp ... (in terms of Space/PCB Layout/Community-knowledge/etc.)

    Another vote for the minimax kit, here. TomB does a spectacular job labeling all of the parts and making it a straight forward assembly.

    Good sound card (coax) as transport for Gamma2

    Have you tried the on board coax out of your new motherboard? Perhaps it, or the USB option of the gamma 2, will provide a temporary solution until you can save the extra money? Maybe keep trying to get your 1212m to work with the new mobo?

    Has anyone gotten the new maglite xl100? It is a new 3xaaa LED light with an accelerometer driven interface. Very cool little light.

    New Millett Hybrid MiniMAX (what happened to this thread?)

    The MiniMax has an onboard regulated power supply. The wallwart is only a transformer that steps the voltage down to 24vac.

    y1 gamma-1 DAC

    Did you use the WM8741 or WM8742 DAC on your gamma 2? If so, U6 should be omitted (see note 1 on the gamma 2 parts list). However, if you used WM8740, you are ok

    Gamma-2 (γ2) DAC Thread

    Hey look, a picture! Waiting for my forgotten u2 before I go any further... Any obvious errors so far? This is my first ever surface mount build (and 2nd build ever). Those voltage regulators are so tiny. One of them could be mistaken for a flea. I made sure all of the grounds were...

    coffee gadgets...

    Vacuum pots make an excellent pot of coffee. While the flavor is different from the aeropress, to me it is very delicious (and entertaining to watch). If my (kyocera) grinder didn't make so much powder when it grinds, I would use the vacpot every day instead of the Aeropress I currently use...
