Guys, do you ever find useful placing this thing on the entrance of DCB1? I'm ordering a box and might grab it to ship together.

Makes sound softer when there is some aggressiveness due to mains noise. Not bad at all to test one in your box and judge in your installation.

I have no complaints so far. Not that I have done any significant tests with and without it

OK I got to finish the front and back panels today.

I routed the IEC slot with a template I made out of some 4mm plywood scraps.
I also routed some of the wood where necessary to allow hardware to be properly screwed. I should have made a template for those too, but since they are not visible, I cba to do it...
And if you look close enough on the top right of the knob, you will see a tiny 1,5mm hole for a led You can actually see it more easily on the back where I drilled a huge hole to allow the led to reach the surface of the front.

Now on the knob issue, the oil gave it a really awesome orangish tint that makes the maple really amazing. I will keep this after all. It will just require some more sanding...

One more thing I have to decide is if I will use dowels to hold it together, or some inner skeleton wenge beams

Dry fitting everything to see if I forgot something. All seems ok.

Tomorrow I will start drilling the plate and heatsinks. And if I have time, I will glue and screw the panels tightly.
In the meantime, I have to get some more wood to make the top lid and figure out a nice layout for it to allow ventilation.

...How come and you did not contemplate Z Foils in the signal path yet? The 220R quartet I mean. All full out DCB1 builders do that at a point.

Never thought about it to be honest. Any suggestions I should consider?

They can be cheaper in American vendors.
