I returned to DIY electronics in 2009 after a 20 year pause by building a few kits to get in shape. This blog is for me to keep track of my progress.

Grounded Grid Preamp

Built from the kit from Bruce Rozenblit. Very nice one, but is not being used - it has too much gain for any of my systems. I will probably sell it.

First Watt B1 clone

What to say... B1 is a great design by Nelson Pass. Easy to build, absolutely transparent to the sound, compact, PCBs are available. I built one, using Nelson Pass' gerbers for making my own PCB, in an enclosure from diyenclosures.com (which sadly seems to be defunct now). The big blue film caps are 10uF Evox Rifa PHE426.

Update: I added a relay input selector, which reduced crosstalk between inputs. I also built another B1 clone (the last three photos), in an enclosure 1U (40mm) high.
