Now goes the DC offset problem, The left channel is 15.5mV , the right is 19.4-20mV. What Can I do about it? And what's wrong?

Wow something Wow of my PSU. I got 74 V from my PSU, is it why the speaker screw up?

This is why its nice to have crap speakers laying around, even if its just a driver that costs $1.00.

I've got some of these myself!

I finally finished my Damn GC. Left with 15mV but the right with 19-20mV and total 5mV different. I changed it to two cases instead of one. It is too small for me to connect the freaking wire. I think I have some setup problem with the GC. I have a hard time connecting the wires. I think I will probably draw another board include all those connection. It is a mess inside. I gave up the light ..................... Anyway sounds quite good, but I think there are some more things that I can make it better. I need to repair my speaker........................................... .................................................. ............................. Oh the PSU 74V make my Heat sink really hot. I can run it for 2 hrs no problem, but don't put your hand on the pan haha.

You can't just put any old driver in the hole to replace a damage unit. The two drivers (for each channel) need to be an exact match.

Hey Nuuk, I don't have B&W speakers.
I love my Epos speakers.
What happened was that I reported some tests I did with my GC and several speakers, including B&W 600 series.
BTW, stay clear of the 602 S3.
It sounds really nasty.
It has a huge impedance dip that will drive your GC mad.
Better go for the cheaper 600 or 601.
Anyway, I don't fancy them...
S.C, listen to some speakers around this price point and decide for yourself.
Better 8 ohms than 4.

Don't worry, Nuuk.
A man that makes a public service like you do is always forgiven.

Come to my house and we'll discuss that.
You can bring your Cesária Evora CD.
We'll listen to my GC, my Pre and a Philips CD650 with NOS Dac I'm about to finish.
And we'll , of course.
