What are you bringing to Burning Amp 2017?
Default What are you bringing to Burning Amp 2017?

To keep this topic separate from the more general Burning Amp 2017 thread I'm starting this thread where you can post about what you are bringing to Burning Amp this year. EVERYONE WHO BRINGS ONE OR MORE DIY PROJECTS TO SHOW IN THE DEMO ROOMS WILL GET FREE ADMISSION!

In general we encourage people to team up with others to form systems. If you are bringing one or more components or loudspeakers and want to do this, please post about it here.

If you are still working on your project or are not sure, just post what you hope to bring anyway. This is a DIY audio show after all. Bring something that works, but don't worry about how it looks!




I'll start off here with the gear that I hope to bring:
1. Linux USB Preamp - this is a brand new project of mine that is a pre-amp-like interface that you plug into a system in order to change input, change the volume, etc. I plan to demonstrate this with the following systems:
2. The active Charlita open baffle speaker: an active open baffle speaker based on the Manzanita. Amps, and a software DSP crossover are used with this system, possibly on a Raspberry Pi or Asus Tinker.
3. MP14-Vifa 2-way - A small closed box monitor. This system will also use a software DSP crossover on a Raspberry Pi and amplification.
4. I may bring a 4-way nude open baffle system, space permitting. This has woofer, midrange, and tweeter suspended by wires and an H-frame dipole subwoofer. Again, a software DSP crossover is used, running on a small Linux computer.

What I need: sources! Some the systems can accommodate one or more analog inputs. If you want to connect your source project to a system, please contact me. This could include tape, vinyl, etc.

I will be bringing a pair of 13EM7 monobloks, Bottlehead Quickie-battery powered preamp, Marantz CD player and a pair of speakers-haven't decided which yet. For backup gear my SEX 2.1 amp and a Foreplay preamp. I will also bring my semi famous chocolate chip cookies.

I am requesting to be placed in a small room.

I can vouch for the cookies: GOOD!

Looking forward to checking out your gear again this year!

Planning to bring:

BAF2015 mini amps with SemiSouth R100s built in ACA enclosures

Remote control, stepped attenuator, buffered pre to drive the BAF2015 amps

VFET/SIT SRPP preamp

SE 6L6 tube amp

Altec 15095 transformer based passive preamp

and any number of other possible things...


I would love to hear the SIT pre and the transformer pre with a Firstwatt F4 if anyone has one to bring. Would also need appropriate speakers and a source.

The amps are available to pair with anyone who needs low power and good sound.

Default BAF 2017 Project

Measuring a channel of my special BAF 2017 project.

It's gonna be a big show this year. Hope you can make it. Bring you stuff!

I'll bring some PCBs to give away.

Stand by for the article.

@PSz: I'll have something we can try that preamp with.

I've been wrestling with medical issues (but hopefully winning), so not as much output as in previous years.

Possibly Maybes:

1) "Iron Garter" 6BQ5 P-P amp (paradoxically, with no garter).

2) "Amp Cramp" Lo-power Class A This will come, whether it's packaged or strung out over the table.

3) "Mirror Magic" Class AB

4) "Aleph McSIT" Class A amp

5) "Light Touch" Lo-power Class A

6) vacuum tube preamp or Linear Systems contest winner

Expect perhaps 3-4 items from the above list.

As usual, can bring Tri-Trix speakers, CD and if demanded, Vinyl source.
