Peter,

Boo!! You're not making your own speaker cables/interconnects?!

just kidding.. But considering all the other stuff you've DIY'd, I'm a little disappointed to see manufactured gear in your setup

Peter,

Have you ever considered doing a tube DAC?

My DAC has passive output stage and it works fine without tubes. If anything, I'd rather build tube preamp, especially if it seems to work well with chip amps.

I got sidetracked a bit experimenting recently with those drivers: Anybody tried FAL drivers?
but I will look into USB DAC soon.

No problem. So far it never happened to me yet.

In your picture on post 474, aren't those cardas cables?! Sorry Peter, just giving you a hard time. I better not push you too hard, because next thing you'll be making a die and drawing your own wire just to shut me up

Default shorting the input resistor

How do you do that Peter? And what is the risk of doing it? Even if I am very satisfied with your kits, I still want to have more (music) out of the amp ;-)
