Nice casework! Are you feeding an amp? Looks like you have a volumite there so maybe you're just feeding the headphones directly? Any first impressions as to the sound? Also, can you tell me how tall an enclosure you will need with the boards and standoffs that are included?

Ha, I figured I'd get dinged on the (lack of) casework. As soon as I fix a few resistors I put in backwards, I'll put this thing in a nice, shiny box.

I'm driving a pair of ~1996 Sennheiser HD-600's in a balanced configuration straight off the Buffalo board, and I haven't put the Volumite to work yet. I haven't tried the DAC on any speakers.

It was immediately apparent to me that the Buffalo beats any source I've listened to by a country mile. As such, I can't add any constructive comparative assessments, sound-wise.

The Buffalo board is under 1.125" and the LCxPS' are a touch under 1.625," both including the supplied standoffs.

I was thinking layout like this with Pesante 2U chasis. Do you see something wrong with the wirings (length etc) or layout? I am pretty noob on electronics, but this is how i have understood how it goes, before i read the manual. The voltages are probably better specified in the manual, but this is what i have catched so far.

pardon the ignorance but looking at the trafo PDF can the primaries be series connected while leaving the secondaries independant? Is the picture a couple posts ago also cool? I am going to build mine this weekend!

VD is 5V

VA is +/-15V There is no 6.6V on the analog side.

Cheers!

I thought there was no orientation to resistors?!?!?!
