Good to know.

I'll be buying the PCBs and basic components to populate them from www.audiosector.com, and extra parts (binding posts, standoffs, and the like) will be coming from www.partsexpress.com. Digikey has a huge selection, but I don't think there is anything I'd need to order from them for this project.

Sorry for not keeping you guys updated.... I'm kinda stuck in a holding pattern right now. I got in the first order (soldering iron, solder, etc) but until I get some more things sold off I'm waiting on purchasing the PCBs and other parts.

So, lo siento to those who were watching this thread. The project is still on, just moving at a somewhat stopped pace for a little while.

On the plus side, I have decided on all but on peice of the system that will be working with this amp. It'll look something like this:

Yet-to-be-decided-on source -> Little-Dot II++ -> Gainclone -> braided cat5 -> PSB Alpha B1 speakers

Here is some reading material on the LDII and the PSB's.

Ontario meet worked out then, eh?

Yeah, that's why I'm springing for one as the preamp (plus a nice headphone amp). Everybody who has one seems to love it, and there is certainly no shortage of second-hand units. It'll serve as the preamp, my first nice headphone amp, and my first piece of tube equipment.

It's definitely a good unit for the money.

I found my case today, albeit in an unlikely form. It's small, it's aluminum, it contains several heatsinks I'll be able to salvage, it already has an IEC jack, and it has a switch that i very easily modifiable into an On/Off switch, not to mention tons of usable wire. What is it you may ask? Check out the pics.

For now, it'll be driving my Sansui SP-3000's until I can get ahold of a pair of PSB Alpha B1's. It'll be my primary listening system.

Yeah, I didn't exactly make it hard to figure out.
