DIY Sony VFET Builders thread
Hey builders! I am another lucky winner! Still finessing the details of the shipping, it's really expensive and want to avoid double taxes, so not yet made the purchase.

My plan is to fit this into my bedroom / tv system. Currently:
TV -> optical into -> Chord Qutest -> Whammy built as PRE -> ACA v1 5w -> Totem Kin Mini (no longer in production)

That should allow me to free the ACA and hook that into a couple of Schiit DAC and PRE with some older SONY speakers.

I would also look into my main system which is:

Rpi3 (Roon) -> coaxial into -> NuPrime DAC-10 -> NuPrime ST-10 -> Totem Rainmakers.

These are much nicer than the smaller Kins, the problem is that I am using both outputs of the DAC-10: RCAs for a SUB, and Balanced for the AMP. So, if I take the single ended RCAs into the new VFET, I'd need to work some magic to get audio into the SUB.

Also, they are 4Ohm more difficult to drive speakers, so the 10db + 10w of the VFET may not be enough, but we will see!

Really excited about this. Looking forward to learning more from the more experienced here and hopefully help a bit to the more novice builders (albeit there are probably very few less experienced than me).

Rafa.

Another lucky winner here looking to join in on the thread. Placed my order just yesterday and I am really looking forward to both this build and of course the amp itself wich will be feeding some 105db efficient horn speakers.

Is this Meanwell PS terminal included in the kit?
If not, please advise part number for those who are just buying the kit so we can order ahead.

Should be part of the parts kit, my guessing.

I just got notice that my chassis has shipped. For some reason, the text of the message appears to be written in a Cyrillic alphabet. Same thing happened with the Ultimate 4U, 500mm deep chassis that I got a while back. Not what I would expect for a shipment from Italy, but the last one got here Ok.

The kit includes the SMPS brick power supply, so it is reasonable to assume that the DC inlet connector for the chassis will also be included. It looks like a 4-pin DIN style connector is the standard option for the -R7 version of the SMPS.

didn't came to you that - when you see Cyrillic, delivery goes via OPLDF ?

You are not the first one, this happened to other people as well. I think sometimes it bugs or something. But you can still find the tracking information inside
