Default Porsche Design Phonostage

Well, the case is, anyway...

This is nothing more than an Elliott Sound Products Project P06 phonostage fed by a Project P05-B PSU. (In a salvaged LaCie portable hard drive case.)

This is not going to be the final wiring, nor the final back panel - I will make something a bit prettier and most likely without the captive output cable. This is just prototype. A LED for the front needs to be added, and a fuse in the PSU input, and probably some other things that are escaping memory right now.

At this stage I can say that it works, and not much else - I literally had it playing for 10min, and then had to shut down the workbench due to my toddler going to sleep. It is very quiet, no hum, and at first glance (listen) sounds very nice indeed.

Take a look - As I said, it isn't finished yet.

I don't understand where the case came from originally.

LaCie, maker of external computer hard drives, has a series of their products in cases styled by Porsche Design. This is one from a few years ago.

Great adaptation.

I have had a chance to listen to this project some more, and I would like to say that it sounds very good indeed!

The circuit has no hum, except when you place the enclosure close to a transformer.

The biggest complaint is that the enclosure is too light to hold up a set or two of heavy interconnects, I will try to get some used lead wheel weights from a local tire shop and add some mass that way.

More photos when I construct and change out the back panel.
