Thanks Tino

The rear panel was done by Front Panel Express, the rest of the machining was done by myself on a mill, band saw, break, and Drill press, plus a plethora of assorted hand tools of course. :-)

Hello Stabist, the APOX is a Relay stepped volume control. The fan runs at just a few volts to keep air moving and keep it quiet at the same time.

Thanks

Hi!

I've been a little unclear - I figure it out that APOX is attenuation stuff - but is APOX a name of firm; is it the product of diyaudio member(s); something third??

Thanks
