So I used a rag to wipe wood stain onto the MDF, giving it a sort of woodgrain effect. Then I used several coats of Danish Oil to give it a deep lustre and provide protection. The result actually looks quite good - most people think they are made from Rimu (a native NZ hardwood). The only mistake I made was not making sure I'd sanded all of the PVA overspills off - so there are a few lighter patches where the stain didn't take properly. But I can live with that. serafis Sun, 22 Jan 2017 19:24:27 -0500 The finished product http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/14576 <a href="http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/14576" target="_blank"><img title="17_finished_item_1.jpg" border="0" src="http://origin.dastatic.com/forums/gallery/data/2234/thumbs/17_finished_item_1.jpg" alt="17_finished_item_1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: serafis<br /><br />Description: And this is what they ended up looking like. But as we know, looks aren't everything. So what did they sound like? Well, actually, the first time I tested them, they sounded awful.But after I'd found the mistakes I'd made in wiring the crossovers, remodelled some of the responses, adjusted crossover values a bit, tried some different Vifa tweeters and generally tweaked, they actually sound rather good. So overall I'm very pleased with the result. serafis Sun, 22 Jan 2017 19:24:27 -0500 Crossover components http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/14571 <a href="http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/14571" target="_blank"><img title="12_crossover_components.jpg" border="0" src="http://origin.dastatic.com/forums/gallery/data/2234/thumbs/12_crossover_components.jpg" alt="12_crossover_components.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: serafis<br /><br />Description: My local electronics store provided most of the crossover componentry, although I had to unwind / rewind some of the inductors to get them to exactly the right values. serafis Sun, 22 Jan 2017 19:24:26 -0500 Crossover layout http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/14572 <a href="http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/14572" target="_blank"><img title="13_crossover_layout.jpg" border="0" src="http://origin.dastatic.com/forums/gallery/data/2234/thumbs/13_crossover_layout.jpg" alt="13_crossover_layout.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: serafis<br /><br />Description: I laid the crossovers out on a piece of MDF that would fit nicely on the internal bracing.

acquired a pair of Beauhorn Virtuoso speakers with Lowther DX4 drivers. I've read a few of the reviews online and I must disagree with them! These speakers do NOT need a super-tweeter, and I'd say for 95% of my listening a sub-woofer isn't needed either. They definitely go lower than my previous Sachiko double-back-loaded horns did. The photo is representation to show what my Beauhorns look like because I don't have a camera. thetubeguy1954 Fri, 06 Jan 2017 19:25:16 -0500 Musical Paradise MP-D2 DAC http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/14528 <a href="http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/14528" target="_blank"><img title="MP-D2_DAC_B_.jpg" border="0" src="http://origin.dastatic.com/forums/gallery/data/1556/thumbs/MP-D2_DAC_B_.jpg" alt="MP-D2_DAC_B_.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: thetubeguy1954<br /><br />Description: USB and Clock Isolation --- USB line interference form dirty computer side always affect DAC performance. MP-D2 introduces innovative isolation technology to completely isolate between the dirty PC side and the clean DAC side, so it gives you the most pure USB PC-HIFI performance you have never experienced before. Power Supply --- 150W toroidal transformer for analog section. Additional 80W toroidal transformer for digital sections. They provide more than 6 times power pool redundancy to support to most critical surge current requirement. They are magnet shielded in the compartment underneath the motherboard. The most advanced lowest noise LDO regulators are employed. In addition, more than 50000uf of total filtering caps are on-board. All of these deliver the highest standard of power performance once found only in leading edge lab equipment. Technology --- MP-D2 is powered by latest XMOS U8 asynchronous USB chip and 2x AKM flagship VERITA AK4490 32bit DAC chips. XMOS Incorporated with three super high precision TCXO clocks deliver lowest jitter performance. Dual AK4490 in mono block configuration and custom voltage setting deliver 126db dynamic range performance. MP-D2 supports PCM up to 384Khz and DSD64, DSD128, and DSD256. Analog Output Stage - Tubes and Caps --- MP-D2 output stage only employs vacuum tubes. No solid state component, zero feedback and fully balanced circuitry. Tube rectification circuit delivers more analog sounding. The unique design of the MP-D2 supports multiple series of signal and rectifier tubes. It is also the first one in the world offering user changeable output stage coupling capacitors. No soldering is required! You owns the freedom to select the tubes and caps. You have never felt anything like it. Chassis --- The full chassis is built with aluminum alloy. Even the legs, knobs, tube protection rings and buttons are made with solid aluminum alloy. The simplicity of front panel design allows you get used to it in minutes. How it sound? Well after listening I agree with Musical Paradise's description. It's extremely dynamic, vivid and detailed sounding. Excellent bass weight and extension. The mid-range &amp;amp; highs are smooth, liquid and airy with a deep and wide sound-stage. But the harmonics, pitch, tone and timbre are to die for. Features •Asynchronous transfer mode for dual USB input. •DSD and PCM input over USB. •USB and clock isolation. •Short delay sharp roll off 50Khz digital filter. •AES, Optical, Coaxial digital inputs. •Zero-feedback, fully-balanced full tube circuitry. •Selectable low gain and high gain output. •Power-line RFI filter. •Pre-amp output feature (10V Max) •Tube Rectification •Signal tubes - 6.3 V series: comes with 6N11 (stock) but can also use 6H6, 6H30, E88CC, E188CC, 6922, 6N23P and 6DJ8. Just flick the internal switch for 12.6 V series and now you can also use 12AU7, 12BH7, E80CC and some other tubes. •Rectifier tubes - 6.3 V series: The 6Z5P tube is stock but the 6X5 can also be used. Switch to the 5 V series: and the 5R4, 5AR4, 5U4G, 5Y3, 5Y3WGT, GZ34 and some others can all be used. Frequency Response --- DC to 50khz DR / SN --- 126 dB Output Level --- 6 volts balanced XLR, 3 volts single-ended RCA Input options: 2x USB PCM 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz, 176.4 kHz, 192 kHz, (384kHz only in Mac and Linux).
