Default Just screw it on a piece of spruce

Just found this during a surf-session,

http://www.mother-of-tone.com/index.htm

You can get one for 500 euro, maybe it sounds great but it looks like a ripp-off.

The wood is the same they use for violins. Who needs aluminium

I was shopping for speaker back in the early 70's in Denver Colorado. The sales man told be the BYOB is lose on the world.

I remember year ago another crazy person claiming the block of wood sitting around one's room would improve the sound of your systems, ha-ha. I believe the name was "sun moon"or e something like that .

I was shopping for speaker back in the early 70's in Denver Colorado. The sales man told be the had the perfect speakers for Denver, they were high altitude speakers. Then they was the guy trying to sell me the Bose 901, telling me that horn speakers were no good, he then went and make a funnel around his mouth and start singing, well he said that’s how horn speakers sound. I left there ASAP.

BS and stereo just go together.

the amp could sound pretty good. It's probably based on some analog (i.e. not switched-mode) 12V Bridged car audio IC, I would guess TDA7350 / TDA7370.

500Euros without power supply is a bit steep but not a total rip-off; most commercial for-profit stuff looks expensive to us DIYers.

(for rip-off see $8000 cable here: http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazin.../stereovox.htm )

When I've build my first non oversampling DAC, I tried many different materials to use as a base to support the PCB. It appeared that a piece of plywood sounded the best and this is how I still keep this DAC: no chassis, no cover, just a piece of plywood.
