The problem is that shunt regs run hotter when less current is pulled

It is all about what you want to achieve...

I have been busy with it for now almost 4 years (every now and then) and for 200 dollars (original opening post) you can have yourself a very nice transport which beats nearly all the good transports in the avarage hifi shops

However it is a bit ridiculess to think that it wins from the likes of Wadia, Mark Levinson and Cec (see my posts in the beginning).

The good news is that it DOES have potential to do so.....so let us say for 2000 dollar you will be able to reach that (different) goal and will be shocked by the results.

Why..because of the synergy chip and laser which results in an analog quality which the top high end does not have...full stop!

I personally can speak out of experience having a lot of gear myself and I am able to listen with it in my "network" of dutch audiobuddies.

The lot will say too much money..but than again those hiigh end makes do not come cheap either.

Besides the money you also have to be dedicated to build the contraption which takes many hours but you can see that is FUN and VISION.

Anyway I am now commisioned to build a mini based on my own PITBull which may not cost more than 2000 dollars on material (the rest is love...) so I will keep you informed.

Today I spend a while on the psu box...Furutech 220V entree and Neutrik 6-pole connector.
No clock connector yet...I first want to know which clock it is going to be...I have got the Tent, Trichord 4 and Neutron and for instance the latter has more wiring (comunication to the psu)...

The trafo is build in Germany to spec..I chose 12-0-12V 1A (twice) and 9-0-9V 1A (once)
they did a nice job but it takes ages (2-3 months).

Love the Lemo! Some high end preamps used them also. It's a medical and scientific connector. Difficult to source though. Regards

BTW If you can't find Lemo, try Fischer or Camac. Same quality. Regards

Default Which is the orientation to wire up the connectors?

It is kind of a stupid question but don't want to burn anything.
Should it be like the 3 pin (twisted) or the 6 pin (mirror) as in the fussy picture?

Thanks!!

Erik, that looks great. Can you tell me what size the blackgates that you are using are? It looks like you have 2 after the regulator. I'm working on getting things together to finally put mine in a proper enclosure. I have lots of ideas but just can't nail down the one that I like the most.
