True. But the shaft is longer to keep the shield about 1,2mm apart from the chassis. And I am pretty sure that the powder coated shield is not that conductive either.

Nevertheless, a clean and robust build is always a good idea.

Plus one point to my thought of using wood for the bottom instead of aluminum

Perhaps...
But you have to admit... they score some nice WOW-factor points

Glad to see your return!

Some projects take longer than you plan.

(Ask me sometime about my 300B amp that has been a 10yr project...)

Well I ended up without a preamp, so I had to fill in that spot first to be able to continue enjoying music

Plus I am also working on a transport, a phono, a turntable and a pair of speakers and I am optimizing my DCB1. Not to mention work and my attempts to get a proper social life, so it still might take a while

As the F5 actually works, it's miles better than the 300B!

No sound always loses the "sound competition".

Sometimes no sound wins the "sound quality competition" !!!!
