Pete -

That looks quite nice. I may be interested in the PCB when it’s available.

Regards,

Karl

Oh, nuttin'... Just a small stack of amps. They'll be powering LXmini+sub and be fed by Nelson Pass' JFET XO. You can see a bit more about that here: ORION/PLUTO/LX... Users Group • View topic - ASP kit for LXmini & LXmini+2 & LXstudio by magicLX.com

Well, I have limited baggage space... I could bring one other thing. Maybe one of these:

- LR Phono
- Nutube headphone amp (if I can find the power supply)
- 3B7 SE A2 hybrid (solid-state driver) amp
- Some other small headphone amp

Any suggestions?

Pete

Tell me about it. Two of the amps will just fit in my suitcase. Add padding and a couple of cables and it reaches the 23 kg limit in a hurry. I hope security will let me slip through with the third amp in my carry-on with a couple of cables.

Pete, I am bringing five different headphone amps, including your Korg Nutube headamp. You are welcome to borrow it for show and listen.
Same problem you and Tom are facing, flying, trying to keep the number of suitcases down!!

Any advice for how to deal with TSA or should I not even attempt to carry on an amp? Stereo equipment is not on their "forbidden items list" that I can tell... In the past, I've always been able to stuff any items that would attract attention on an Xray into my checked luggage, so I'm asking out of inexperience here. When I used to travel with lots of camera gear, I would get various levels suspicion from the TSA, but it's my impression that they've calmed down a bit since then. I'm just not quite sure what to expect, that's all.

Tom

Hi Tom, interesting that you should bring that up as I'm just now building a couple of semi-sacrificial styrofoam cases for my Thomas Mayer monoblocks.

I've had no issues so far with bringing amps in carryon luggage aboard commercial flights - even with tube gear. The key, I think, is to be totally up front during the screening process by letting them know you have something that might pique their "interest". Tell them beforehand what it is, and take it out of your luggage if necessary so they can have a better look.

One way to make the process easier is to pack strategically. Last year I built a styrofoam case for an RH84 out of blue sheet insulation reinforced with "Gorilla Tape". It had a lid that covered the top and transformers completely, yet was easily removed to allow the TSA guys to see that what was underneath was more a piece of furniture than anything else. I didn't even have to take it out of my bag; it just cruised through the x-ray with the flap open.

Your mileage may vary, of course - but just be forward about it all and you should be all right. One thing's certain; they'll know it's not an iPad!

Glad you can make it, btw.

Giving away all remaining stock of Cheapomodo V.2 PCBs.

Giving away three fully assembled, working and tested, RingNot power supplies. These are 28V @ 4 amps max. One RingNot board comfortably powers two channels of LM3886 chipamps.
