The granite is quite 'ringy', so will need to be damped somehow, perhaps by attaching bitumen pads to the back.
And then..... the flashing blue lights!

Hello Jonners

Inspired also by audio1st Im im progress building same structure and planning to bond the granite base to 9mm mdf underneath using 2 components stone compound adesive. Any thoughs?

Cheers and thanks

Hello Jose

Sounds like a good plan, except for the fact that it's not exactly reversible if you don't like the result!

Cheers, John

Ha! I saw that news article just a few days after attending a Rush concert complete with green lasers. I had to read it to make sure it wasn't me.

Hopefully, my transports will be arriving soon so I can get started on this project. I've ordered a Chime DAC kit from Jim Hagermann so I'm expecting great things from my new digital sources. I'm not sure how I'll mount the transport and the DAC so they'll probably live on some plywood for a little while.

Today I did built a 5 Volt regulator
(my super reg is still not in the mail )

So I can fool around with that.......

I also made a toc-switch (the wooden peg is becoming quite a hinderness when you play dozens of cd's) and a switch to get the cd illuminating blue-led on/off....

When I switch (being not in the optimal listening position) on/off my impression is that I can hear NO difference...sorry to say (so far )...

However I will investigate further...experimenting with the intensity and the led- position.

I will also kindly ask my wife to switch
(the toggle that is )

This might be a stupid question, havent followed the issue closely, but has anybody used hall-effect switch for TOC switch ?

That way all we would need to do is use the metalic layer of CD to switch TOC reading.

Interesting idea, unfortunately IIRC the metalization is non magnetic so I suspect a hall effect switch would not work.

Does the switch have to be latched/maintained or can it be momentary? I know on the actual player it was maintained by the cover.

It must be remain in the closed position in order to play the cd.. Opening immediately aborts play and deletes the toc contents in the microcontroller memory, closing initiates a new toc read.
