I picture Nelson sitting comfortably in his favorite chair, glass of wine in hand, and feet propped perfectly by a box of PEC pots.

Nelson, please...discuss, discuss!

I can't wait to hear $22 of PEC pots vs. my $200 (ca. 1993) Penny & Giles.

I think what he means is that he put in what he had lying around. Were probably being too fussy.

Yep....we're pretty fussy. I'll agree with you on that one.

Thanks for the input, guys.

You've more or less convinced me that the B1 is the superior design. Although I have no experience listening to Mr. Pass' fine designs, his philosophy of simplicity meshes really well with mine, and I do truly appreciate his generosity with the DIY community. Based on the positive results all of you have had with the B1, it seems like a no brainer.

As I wait for the boards to become available again at passdiy.com, however, I've decided to go ahead and build the Aunt Corey circuit.

Arne's (Cobra2) observations comparing the two has got me thinking that the A-C may be worth a shot. And since I have the BUF-03s, regulator boards, and transformer on hand, I might as well give it a go.

The B1 will come later, though. I plan on setting up the chassis so I can switch in the B1 boards at a later time, obviating my concern about cost of a second chassis and associated parts.

Thanks for you input, and a big thanks to Mr. Pass especially.

Best,
KT

Ignore temporary box.

Nice build and why ignore the box -- it looks good. It looks nice but not too overbuilt. Where did you get it?

Thanks. The box is aluminum painted or coated beige with aluminum front and back. I got it at Mouser. Mouser has other extruded aluminum boxes that look nicer, but they run short width wise. It could be done but I like the short run of hook wires, like the Pass B1. This box cost $63, which for me is expensive for not liking it. I don't have acess to tools right now to make my own from plates.

BTW- the Radio Shack Rainbow wire is horrible. Don't use it if you don't have to use it. I'll be rewiring with other hookup wire later. Right now I just wantto listen to something!

Also, I have another B1 90% finished. One of these will go to a friend.

Thx

V~

I have one of the sliding cover types. They are very nice. Don't know if it's from Lansing.

thanks!
