Farnell have Panasonic caps.
Only downside is that they do not take private orders.

Which control unit from Dantimax you bought it? It seems it's only Control2 CPU board without front panels.

The board attached to the front panel which has a rotary encoder attached looks like it's a VolControl2.

i intent to build the volume control the hard way.
Using all discrete, off the self components.

Part lists:
optical rotary switch (2bit)
8bit up/down counter
8bit DAC to drive a display meter
3 to 8 multiplexer

relays,resistors............

That doesn't look like a list of discrete components to me
Or are you intending to make discrete versions of the logic circuits?

No no no...........
that will be too many component.....

what i meant was, i do not intent of using any controller with C-programming. instead, i will do it using logicgates.......

I guess my meaning of 'discrete' was slightly out. hahaha.....

Hi,
can you tell us now the sound of Aleph P? Please describe the sound, and can you compare the sound of Aleph P with other preamp? Thanks.

I must admit I haven't tried very many preamplifiers to compare the aleph P to other products. I recommed you read the reviews of the commercial product for more info. What I personally have experieced is that there are several tweaks that improve the sound, e.g. using Siemens sikorels 1000uF and BG N bypassed with MKP1837. However, the aleph p is a perfect match with my aleph 1.2s, my previous Electrocompaniet 250R and a friends Dynamic Precision A1. I am feeding the Aleph P with a DDDAC (4.7uF decoupling cap).

With regard to dantimax I must say I am very disapointed! Both my friend and I used the relvol3 with input and controller, they have now both failed within a few months. Also there seems to be several ground loops in the design, as in noise.

It may have been bad luck, but both sets had the same issues.

In the end I have replaced the dantimax with a standard alps pot for the time being.

Anyone else having issues with dantimax?
