Lightbulb Hypex - fiberoptic cable for panel light

Hi All, maybe this is interesting for hypex amp builders or any other amps with little LED's on them.

To get the light from these little LED's on the amp to the front panel, I took a cheap Toslink cable apart and routed it to the front panel of the amp. The other side went over the little led. The little gold ring around the light gives the whole thing a nice finished look. The light is quite discreet. Advantage is that it is passive and won't pick up any EMI.

The amp shown is a prototype but you get the idea

Default 1 mm LED's look very cool

Totally agree about the looks r100

Did the same thing , but drilled 1 mm holes in the front of my amp and only fed the fibers in the front panel . Looks great , Pictures don't show it that well , but high bright 1mm LED's look very good on your amp !

Cheers ,

Rens
