I will try to post here from now on if there is any doubt about how much I like the Paradise I hope it will be dissipated by the amount of Effort and Dosh I throw in to it

Just got today new enclosures for the paradise.

Instead of 60 + screws and captive nuts those are down to 4 each.

They don't look like much at the moment and there is a fair bit of work to be done with cooper lining and such so for now the protective plastic stays on.

From close by I am asking myself if I have found a rare Craftsman with Pride in his work that made them for me

On another front I was asking about component selection and tolerance

The answer to that IMO should have been.
"You Silly Billy are looking in wrong place 1% is fine and does not amount to much."
So if you are doing this to learn new things maybe this helps a bit.
Current Mirror

I have been playing with it for hours as right click on components let you change same values.
Nothing to do with paradise and nothing special to you I know...

Progress is in progress slowly and whit great pain
SWAMBO to be taken in to account as Dremmel make to much noise.

About reaching Paradise I did a while ago this baby sound realy good (sometink realy special IMO) and it was hard to take off the system to rework enclosure.

Any way Stainless box has now 2 windows covered with stainless stell mesh
Cooperextention to on board regulators further PCB with extra CRC
The bent piece of copper on first picture will be screen between PSU and PHONO parts of the pcb (Those PCB are realy clever )

I aim to keep regulator cool and Phono part screaned thermal balance inside phono part may be an issue...
