I was able to buy it (for the copper-price) from an industrial client .
I am still building according to my MDF scale...only the
bottomplate becomes a shallow compartment in real life...(such as in the Kalista...)

Since I never make drawings I build most of it "while I am at it"
I always give myself room for changes without loosing to much of my original idea.

Hi all

I have just stripped down my first EZ31 and I am now starting to put together a component order.

Shigaclone PCB

1 x BG STD 1000/25v
1 x BG FK 2200/35v

2 x BG N 4.7/50 (I cant seem to find these anywhere, can someone suggest an alternative?)

1 x BG N 10/50v
1 x BG N 33/16v
1 x BG N 47/6.3v

1 x ERO 10n
1 x 300-8441 oscillator

PSU

2 x BG STD 1000/50v
2 x MSR860
1 x LM7808
1 x Dale 100R
1 x Dale 300R

I will use the standard transformer to begin with.

Chipamp (Dual Mono 3886)

For those of you who have tinkered with one of these, I thought I might upgrade the caps on this board with some blackgates. Which caps should I replace to achieve the greatest gain in audio performance? Panasonic FC are currently installed.


I am going to be ordering the parts from the US and want to try and get everything in one go so as to save on postage.

Is there anything I may have missed?

Thanks

Richard

"what about pins 33-36 on the LC78620? I'm looking at the LC78620E datasheet, as I cannot make the exact number out from your photo. Looks to be i2s output."

@ Luvdenhill, are you able to confirm your findings?

Today I did some effort with the display since I have to wait for my regulators....

The idea is to put the whole displayboard with a black perspex rim into a block of milled cocobolowood....

Erik,

I am extremely impressed with your dedication and habilities to make these mods. Woaw!

Myself, I put my project on hold: just scared of messing up with the control board by rebuilding it...

Hi Jonners

Duh!

I was looking at another supplier yesterday who didn't have them in std or pk but Percy Audio appear to have them on their price list. I will send them an email to find out if they have some in stock.

Have you tried any UK suppliers for Blackgate? I have looked at the hifi collective website

Is there anything else I may have missed?

Thanks

Richard

Hi Richard
I got my caps from Parts Connexion. Filling in their order form was a bit tedious but delivery was extremely fast.
Don't think you've missed anything.

John
