It depends on the load. For a Placid powering just a plain BII, it'll likely be enough to use a 10VA. The BP + Legato fi. uses more power, and for that it sounds like a bad idea.

Hi Russ,
I would like to change Buf I (lapizied) with exchanged 9008 chip to 9018 chip
into Dual mono Buf II. BUT I would like to make sure there is not a problem to
have tubes in power section and at the output with BUf II.
Is the Buf II board simmilar to Buf I board in terms of possible lampizition process?
Christ

Off the wall question...

I and a friend of mine, both have the first Buffalo kits. Mine has been happily running since I finished the build. My friend built his, and it did not work.

He brought it over, I checked voltages, looked for soldering mistakes, etc... nothing. Then, I pulled my firmware/processor chip out and put it in his. TADA!! It Lives... Put his chip in my Buffalo, nothing.

So, looks like he either got a unprogrammed PIC, or it got spiked with ESD while he was handling it, etc. He emailed once or twice, didnt' get a response, (think it was around Brian's move) and hasn't bugged you guys further.

Rather than wait for him to get over his own problem in not bugging you further, I was thinking of using a PIC programming kit and buying the $1-2 part, and copying mine onto a new blank. Only thing I'm worrying about, is there a copy protect on those particular PIC's, and did you use it?

There, now do I know how to take a long time to get around to a question, or what?

Thanks...

No we did not use any copy protection on the PIC.

You should be able to copy it. If you like I can even send you the old hex files.

Not that I mind, but this thread is about the Buffalo II, any further conversation about this really should go in the old buffalo thread (just scroll down a bit from our forum index). Actually we can probably handle the rest over email.

Cheers!
Russ

Great!

Yeah, I got here from a link, didn't know there was an active B-1 thread. I might copy it over there for posterity, it might help someone.

I'll send you my address.

No, you could put DAC, Mux & Toslink on one Placid

i am waiting for my new-year shipment, consisting of a Buffalo and IVY 3 and some Placids, i prefer a solid powerpack so im gonna run 3 Placids for the IVY (and one for the Dac)

i know the question have been asked before but since im planning to use 4 Placids would it be best to put the Placids in a separate case?
if you recommend putting everything in one box, how far apart must the Placids be from the DAC / IVY and signal lines
If i put the Placids in a separate case, wirering will be longer (probably 1,5ft - 2ft long) but i am planning to use some very good Silkspeak 4mm2 cable to connect the Placids and the IVY / Buffalo.

Ideas appreciated

Since it vastly increases the length of your powerlines I wouldn't do that. Plus it's really not needed, and that's in multiple ways. It's not required if you use a big enclosure, plus the best sonic improvements are going dual mono and using tridents. If you use Trident regulators you don't need a Placid for the DAC board.
