Add one of those cheapo wooden cutlery draws for a base, some more C37, and there's no reason not to have a nice (low cost) housing!

KYW, you're a man after my own heart!

No. I somehow seem to lack the knack for that principle. I need one of these things though to power my time machine. We'll see.

(Time Machine as in a Machine to produce time, so I have time for all the things I want to do, not as in a Vehicle to traverse time - which would be a Timeship [or car or plane], not a timemachine)

Power in my case comes from a transformer that used to power a Mullard 5-10 Poweramp and 8 X 10H Chokes plus siz 120uF/400V Ansar Film Capacitors. The heaters have also a choke PI filter with 1,000uF / 1H / 68,000uF X 2.

As for C37, why don;t get some and lacquer your Q-Interface with it, inside and out. You may find the results rather surprising.

Cutery bases, good idea. I used simple wooden pieces from Homebase that had the right size and where part of some shelf mounting kit. The cost was something like 3 damp Squid. The metal rings on Valve bases BTW are Downlighters for these 12V Dicroic Lamps from the local electrical wholeseller in Edmonton.

BTW, the cost of the Housing pales when you consider the S&B MC Stepups, S&B LCR RIAA EQ's, loads of Chokes and so on. Even "with a little help from my friends" (like Stephen Robinson who sold me all the Ansar Cap's for 100 Squid, Jonathan Billington who wound me the transformers and RIAA for a "nice price", Jon Finlayson who allowed me the use of his Woodworkshop to machine the top board and who cut the Mitres for the Base plus the peopel at Criclewood Electronics, Maplin and RS) the total cost of this Phonostage is quite frightening.

Paying retail for everything would be more so....

BTW, why don't you drop in one of these days? Is the circle still meeting at THAT pub opposite the Masons Hall?

I'm way out in the sticks in deepest Somerset (unwaged and no car!) so pub meetings are too far for me to attend or to just 'drop in' (unfortunately).

You'll be glad to hear that list of 'helpers' is still active (clearing out their bottomless parts boxes ) and currently helping me with my first valve project.

Looks just Lurvely.... Keep going. BTW, I love those GainKlones....

I do have the sneaky suspicion that they have taken to multiplying like rabbits. ("Die ich rief die geister")

Because I don't care for lacquers of any sort. I prefer tung oil.

And I particularly won't get C37 because I don't care to patronize charlatans. Which is not to say that C37 lacquer can have no effect. Only that Deiter's right up there with Peter Belt in the charlatan department.

Who is a charlatan or not is very much a question of perspective. I could think of people who would declare anyone a charaltan who, for a box containing transformers, claimed:

"The result? Each component is allowed to operate at its optimum, allowing you to hear what your system is truly capable of. "

(BTW, I'm with the guy who wrote this on this one - killing all the various noiseloops and forcing signals into defined current loops has big sonic benefits)

Indeed, they'd probably consider any Transformer incapable to give any possible improvement.

So, they'd probably consider anyone selling a box with Transformers as "system improvement device" a charlatan.

I would recommend to be less judgemental about things that you have no experience with nor any material knowledge of.
