Just make sure the SMPS supplies are the non grounded variety otherwise the positive on one can't be tied to negative of other brick. Most are the non grounded variety though and can be had for cheap if you don't have a couple already lying aroundunused. Isn't the sound if one transistor clapping the Pass Zen designs? I'll have to check it out. So many amps so little time.

I, for one, don't think Pass has the lock on that phrase, but that may just be me. To me, any single transistor (SE) amp with minimalist design is a zen design (not Zen). But I digress b/c I do want to try some of the Pass designs (e.g. Enlightenment).

I just finished my TPA3116D2 amp in the class D forum TPA3118D2 It sounds fantastic and will be my new amp powering my foam core creations. 30 watts/ch at 0.1% THD runs from a 19 v laptop brick, and is the size of a credit card in outline.

Uh-oh I thought, here comes that look. You know the look. Uh-huh, she says let me see it, how much?

6 bucks I say nice and proud. A big smile comes over her face and she says that looks like a nice one, do have a use for it?

Well, no.

That's ok it's only 6 bucks she says.

On the way home she says - I like it when you buy those things from the second hand store, so cheap that way. Is that a good one?

You both are honey, you both are.

Nice buy there Cal. Lately it not about the price but the fact that if I do diy it takes away from me getting important things done. So the look is "are you crazy, where are you going to have time to work on that?"

Right now, the Cornu's are 'in storage'. But as you can see, I am quickly running out of rooms and will have to resort to giving them away if I produce anymore foam offspring

I forgot about the bathrooms. Well then there are the closets, the garage, and the foyer... Shipping something this bulky to China will cost a lot more than the foam and drivers... Hey, have you built any foam core speakers yet Mossman?

I would have to be much more careful with internal construction though as it would all be exposed. Do you guys think that seeing the internals would be an attraction or cover it up? Lowes has 2 ft x 4 ft sheets of 0.080 in thick acrylic for $20. That is enough for the pair. Hmmmmm...
What I was thinking of was white semi transparent plexi glass for the front panel and a clear back panel and light the edges all the way around you would get a soft glow and the spiral shape would have a shadow effect. Just a thought.
