For the amp, I just buy metal online and bolt it together.
The pre is repurposed WAN router.

I try to be cheap and unattractive as possible.
I am not one to want it to look world class.

Pinnocchio - Thanks for the leads. All look solid. I did some e-pay search work and lots of decent opitions. Thanks again

"I try to be cheap and unattractive as possible" - I love it! I should put that on my autosignature at work!

I say that to my co-workers. I figure if I look homeless and crazy, people will not bug me. (Doesn't usually work) One learns there own coping mechanisms, healthy or not.

No problem. I personnally always buy the Modushop chassis but my friend buys the ones on ePay (the link I gave you) and it is really nice!

Ciao!

Salas, I was curious and deciding which value for the potentiometer in front of the DCB1 to choose, either 10K or 25K? I thought that 10K is too low for loading my DAC and phone preamp, on the other hand 25K, as you have mentioned may be a bit too high for proper DCB1 operation, even thought it would benefit by less loading the source equipment. The lowest possible distortion level is the goal.
I would appreciate for your advice.

I have just received the 0,47uF FT3 caps... Damn those are HUGE!! They even came in a wooden box...

But I have just tried some new interconnect cabling and to be honest I do not feel like changing anything for now... Sweet sweet sweet music

For reference, here is a photo showing the relative sizes of the caps.

From left to right we have...

0.012uF FT1 teflon (wrapped and unwrapped)
0.47uF Mundorf Supreme
0.47uF Mundorf Supreme Silver-Gold
2.2uF K75-10 PIO
0.1uF FT3 teflon
0.22uF FT3 teflon
0.47uF FT3 teflon

Could someone who knows Cyrillic post a reference table showing the "codes" of these various Russian capacitors and what they mean with the english equivalent?

It seems that the T & the 3 translate exactly.
What is the Cyrillic for Vac and Vdc?

Is B = AC or DC voltage?
Can anyone do the remaining characters?
