Closeup. I like to use a double-insulated transformer for the always-active part.

This one controls the rear channels, and also matrix decodes the center-rear channel.

Hi,
I forgot to ask a couple of questions...

Where did you get the knobs?

What is the main case resting on?

How did you cut the window for the LCD? This is my nemisis!

Thanks,
Gaz

美し_ないけど、_りがとうございます。

Thanks for the compliments. I must admit I was inspired myself by the Levinson equipment with the "tower" sides.

The knobs are from Kilo International...they are carried by Digikey and are only $6.

In the back there are two rubber feet. No need to get fancy with cones here. As far as the window, I effectively cheated with the design...the copper plate is thin enough that I could use a nibbling tool to get a nice rectangular opening.

How did you perform the matrix decode for the surround-back channel?
