I ask because I've heard a fairly nicely built millet and while it sounded good it wasn't as good as the millet max I often refer to. To have a comparable millet hybrid you'd have to have the diamond buffer outputs and a steps quality power supply.

the millet max combines all the best tweaks to the millet hybrid onto one board. You can build the max with either diamond buffers or mosfet output stage. It can be configured to primarily drive high impedance cans or low.

the couple Millet Max amps I've built, have they been on the same level as my (well not anymore) SP MPX3 SLAM? no, but then again there is a huge price difference and the Max is not outclassed by amps costing several times as much.

It was a hybrid max, owned by xnothingpoetic from HF. Wallwart, probably no diamond buffers, otherwise I'm not too sure of what the specs were.

I'll have to hear one of your Millets sometime . Which reminds me, did that Toronto meet ever get solidified? I *think* Joel might still be willing to make the trip as well.

no dates yet. It's happening, just not sure when. Supposedly end of June. I hope not too late cause I've got a trip planned for the beginning of July.

Yeah.

I might just be the guy crazy enough to buy a plane ticket for that meet.

I've got some folk in Canada, anyway. Would be nice to say hello (to them and allz you folks too!).



Keep me posted.

I need at least three weeks notice.

(BTW: currently going through some old Simon and Garfunkel stuff ... MAN! were those guys not crazy good or what!? The song is "Blues Run the Game," ... a lesser known bit but so so good! It's a bonus track on the Sounds of Silence (remastered) release ... )

"Send out for whisky baby..
Send out for gin ...
Me and room service honey...
Me and room service babe!
Me and room service, why we're living the life of sin..."


In perfect two part, mind you ...

Flirting with the idea of forgoing a headphone amp upgrade and instead picking up a vintage integrated amp (specifically have the Marantz 1060 in mind) and some decent, lower-price speakers (specifically, Klipsch SF-1s). '70s integrated amps are well known for having terrific headphone outs. =D Could have great, low-price headphone AND speaker setup for about the same price as the better headphone amp.

So, I'm going to be trying out Playstation-Fi quite soon seeing as I'm about to add a PS1 SCPH 1001 to the mix.

Question though - I wanted to see if I could transport the signal from the PS1 to the E-MU, but there are only USB and digital coax/optical inputs on the DAC. Can I use those dual XLR/RCA combo jacks on the front (the ones labeled as Mic input)? I'm going to assume that it isn't possible seeing as those front XLR's cannot handle balanced - logic would tell me that it won't be possible to connect the two pieces of hardware together.

Regardless, SCPH 1001 vs. 0404 USB should be quite a showdown. I'll be sure to post the results.

You won't be able to get a balanced signal out of the PS1, but if you are inclined you could make some RCA to XLR cables by bridging the 1st and 3rd pins of the XLR jack. Of course this negates any benefits of using XLR in the first place, but I've had to make many of these as my band's equipment is an eclectic mix of consumer and pro stuff. Bulk XLR jacks are inexpensive enough, as are decent quality RCA interconnects to chop in half and terminate with the XLRs.

So, I'm at the Michigan State University rummage sale thing with my dad, and what do I find?

Professional level Marantz CD player, balanced XLR output and all, for $20. Three of them, in fact. I would have bought it immediately, but alas, had no cash on me, and it didn't have RCA out, so I couldn't have used it anyway. Did have digital coax out, which I'm not sure if the E-Mu does or not, I'll have to look into it.

Anyway, if anyone has a major college near them that does the rummage sale type thing, I'd definitely look into them. Not only can you get good quality furniture for cheap (I got a nice wooden rack to hold my amp/DAC/speaker amp for $2), but every once in a while you'll find a gem. =D
