I finally finished my dual mono BIII. Waiting for my GB Amanero USB/I2S module, and I have to finish wiring the remaining inputs.The USB input is just stuck in there as a filler. The blue LCD will eventually be replaced by a green one. Enclosure is a Hi-Fi 2000 Pesante 3U. Machining/engraving done by Hi-Fi 2000/Modushop. I did the color fill using Testors enamel.

Nice. Did you mean 32bit/384 kHz on the front panel?

Best,

Anand.

Thanks Anand. Yes, I deliberately left 'bit' out. You either know or you'll ask, right?

The "bit" part was not my concern. My concern was the part after that.

384 Hz

vs.

384 kHz

I'll have to go back and look at the plan........ OK, I can tell you how it happened, but it still ends with it being my fault. I had the wrong front panel size at first, started over and screwed up. I been lost in the woods and didn't notice....

It looks great, I had a similar thing happen recently, too deep in the forest to see the trees

Nobody else has a 384Hz model

That is a nice looking build. Can you give a little information about the display. I would like to have some for the next one I do for myself. I would love to be able to use a VFD for the display. I just like the look.

Can anyone suggest some good caps to use as AC coupling caps. Russ suggested 4.7uf-10uf as a size. I just need to know what anyone might be using that sounds good. Prices for such animals can be ridiculous.

As DC blocking at the balanced output or for what purpose. As dc blocking at the output of Legato Balanced I recommend Silmic II . To get better sound you have to buy very exspensive and very big caps like DCA cast .

DC blocking at the outputs are what is needed. I know that these can get really expensive. How do different values affect the sound? It sounds great as is but I nor the owner want to change the sound unless it is better. I thought of buying a few of the less expensive ones to try out. Just to see the kind of difference it makes.
