Carlos,
Did you listen to any music from MapleShade Records yet? The saxophone on the song Making Woopee is maybe the best you will ever hear except for a live performance. That song is on the Music Festival CD and also one other CD as I recall.

Carlos and everyone else interested, go to this link:

Mapleshade Records - A La Carte Brass & Percussion

and listen to "That Mellow Saxophone." You won't get the full impact with the mp3 you can download, but it is a taste.

Also, go to : Mapleshade Records - King Bluiett Trio

and listen /download /buy the CD of "Makin Whoopee." It sounds unbelievably good with a good system.

Default Dx Blame ES and ST pictures from diyaudio builders

I thank all them by the kindness to provide me pictures to the hall of fame.

I have used some of them only, there are pictures that have not so good quality to be published...so, there are more folks that have build and have not their pictures published in this small video....also there are repeated pictures from the same builder.

Enjoy:

YouTube - Dx Blame, made by diyaudio folks!

regards,

Carlos

Default DX-ST Complete

Hi Uncle Charlie,

I completed my DX-ST last week already. I was to busy listening to this wonderful amp and forgot to post some pics here. My comments: This is a wonderful amp. Sound is excellent and bass is strong. No switch on or off thumb. I will get my supply transformers tomorrow and assemble complete unit over weekend. Cannot wait.......will keep you posted......

Regards
Macd

Default I receive this news with undisguised joy dear Macd

You've always been interested in our Corporation, the Dx Corporation, the happy audiophiles Union... now going to 600 members.

You use to assemble uncle charlie amplifiers, and this is very much appreciated, also your presence back here again.

I thank you by the confidence, the preference to assemble a Dx amplifier, when we have other good ones in our forum..you're an excellent member of our Corporation, someone developed, that has experience, skilled to assemble, does not brings doubts to the forum, never tries the change projet items...simply build and trust, in a very silent and efficient way.

I love all builders, but of course i have some of them i love the most...the golden frame to your picture (send me) in the hall of fame of the Dx Corporation Headquarters, the highest position in the wall, reserved to golden five stars members.

I would like to have your picture (publishable and containing the automatic authorization of use), in an identification card style or driver's licence style...and this if you want, of course.

regards,

Carlos

Default Final question about sensitivity and some pics

I noticed that while testing the amp that I was only getting a maximum peak voltage of 10v AC as measured on a multimeter when playing music at maximum volume. This was the same as when using a cd player with rca outs to when using my ipod with rca outs. The rca plugs are giving out around 0.5v output into the amp. Can some resistor changes be made to make the amp more sensitive? Is 10v AC max on a 50w amp normal? The rails on this amp is 38v?

Regards

Niss_man

can you input a constant voltage constant frequency AC (sinewave) test signal?
Compare input signal voltage to output signal voltage.

Testing on music proves little other than the signal varies a lot.
