Post Pics of your audio DIY [56k warning!!] - Page 30

post #291 of 498
I need to start making cables, it looks like it'd be fun. Besides, I'd get something to do that doesn't involve studying.

anyways...
Got bored, strapped that switch I made to a scope in class and confirmed what my ears have been nagging me: something's coloring the sound.
In response, I whipped up a relay-based input/output selector in a java circuit sim (SPICE app wasn't handy at the time).



I've already got the parts sort of lying around except for a rotary or two, just need some time to breadboard it and plan out the perfboard

edit------------
still think that pseudo-schematic view looks weird

I finally got around to posting some pictures of the MOSFET MAX I finished not to long ago. Its wearing Rust-Oleum aged copper paint and has Elna RFS Silmic II caps in the signal path. The tubes are 12FM6. It also has an on board grubDAC. Sounds great with AKG K702's.

Very nicely done.
I'm itching to start on a Minimax myself, but school won't let me :S

i have done, as a hobby, a lot of custom ipod LOD cables if anyone is interested (sold like 10 on head-fi)

LOD = line out device, usually ipod dock -> 3.5mm but also ipod dock -> RCA

it is purely for sending pure signal in case you a plugging an ipod into a dedicated amp. if i remember, i will post some pics here.

Yeah I've made some of those as well. I made this tiny one that I use daily on my portable hifi-set, pure braided silver baby .

Yeah post some pics, we'd love to see others work.

DH Labs Silver Sonic BL-1 interconnect wire
Cardas silver plated RCA connectors
Cardas silver lead-free solder

My first DIY cable. I really enjoyed making these. I don't have a use for them right now so I'll likely get rid of them and make something new when I need more cables!

Cardas SLVR plugs are pretty nice. I like SRCA better though! I use the Cardas quad solder... I'm not afraid of some lead lol.

Cardas makes some nice stuff... Being a vendor is even nicer
