Wink Another diy-pearl...

Hi... I just finished my pearl, a week ago, so i throught it would be a good idea to 'show it off' here - I like it

The input is mounted with a little dipswitch, so that i could switch between input-resistance load. My pickup likes 15k Ohm. Eventually look at this very interessted thread

HERE

The enclosures are diy, with oak-sides and 'unfinished' face plates. The one at the top is the pearl, the other below is the psu, which should contain other things as well, in the future. I just finished it as it is, so that i could listen to it

I recently bought a very worn-out thorens td316, which i cleaned up, and mounted a new belt-drive, along with a grado silver prestige pickup.

I have used the pearl layout, which cviller made, and i am very satisfied with the sound of it. Thanx cviller, also for helping me a bit with this.

I have no anoying 'hum or hiss' from my setup, which i connected, with the ground meeting at the output, as mentioned in the pearl-papers. Compared to another relatively expencive riaa stage, the sound is sooo much better from the pearl... But most surprising me, was the 'no hum' which the pearl gives me !!!

Jesper

I will post some picture's along

I hand draw them with a 'dalo' pen, and a normal 'etch'
I draw both channel's at the same time, and when etching was done, i seperated them.
The PSU part i 'designed' myself, for fitting with my caps, and very-fast diodes (I think grinsssh...)

Jesper.

Default Nice

Good job! How did you figure out that your cart. liked a 15K load? Just tried different values?
