If someone is interested in the plugs,
I would buy the plugs here in Germany,
and ship them at the cost plus shipping costs.

Might make sense if the order were large enough. Only place I could find them domestically is here

@borlotti are the nylon standoffs on your built for a purpose? I’m thinking you will mount a metallic shield to prevent hum?

At €1 per connector part, I’m figuring that

8 female and 40 male, it will cost €48 euro, if I understand correctly.

Well, I went back in and swapped out those Carbon Comp resistors... Wasn't bad, I have had plenty of practice de-soldering. lmao

Default connectors

I requested the connectors directly from the manufacturer this morning. Number of pieces for 10 x complete assembly of the boards, which are each a set with 8 sockets and 40 plugs. as soon as I get the prizes I'll get back to you.

Okay, dropped in the Antek with 20V secondaries and I'm now in the ball park... As some rad above, I had some 22V secs from another project and was going to use them, but I was getting almost 28V rails even with the SLB supply.



I have 24.4 as a low and I can take it up to about 26.5 on the rails. BTW the one mono is done, it look marvelous. I didn't hear anything funky from the PWM for the fans either, but I also have the M2 mounted to the rear cover and all the noise making stuff is a foot away. The trans is in the open and I heard nothing with my ear and inch from the speaker.



Now it's on to the second mono and finish off the daughters.


After that, might attack the Honey Badger, just so I have some muscle.

Default connectors for the daughterboards

I got the prices for the connectors from the manufacturer today.

the socket costs 1,20 per piece
the plug 1,00 per piece

If someone is interested, I can send the connectors.

Shipping costs will of course be added

Current status: M2x boards stuffed and in their final resting place (unless the thing sounds really bad).
I made a sloppy frankenstein Ishikawa with stuff I had around (not MJ approved). I am going to test this out first. I am waiting for Tucson parts OPA604, I think I will go with that in the end.

I had some nylon standoff for the mainboard and some brass ones I machined back in the day for the add-on card. Bought the Al ones but did not have M3 screws.
This is an enclosure I made circa 2006 overbuilt to hell. I think it should be able to handle 160W dissipation.
I am still debating around the PS ideas, now that the universal PS is back in stock I have some other options to play with.
I may trade off the increase voltage from the butta' board (SLB) rectification, and burn that off with a higher R of the CRC and forgo the capacitance multiplier at least during initial testing.
