    DIY Class A Amp

    Haven't done either of those but did the Amp Camp Amp despite the poor reviews here. Was an easy build to do with everything all in there. Would recommend for learning purposes. Pretty much no power though so don't expect a lot out of them. I use them well enough on 87db speakers but have to...

    Parts Express Copperhead Desktop Full-Range Speaker build

    can confirm, built 2 pairs with my kids. they loved every moment of it, including one of them singing his finger tips on the soldering iron. that being said, i don't have a beard nor do i live near the outdoors so clearly i'm not getting the full on copperhead experience!

    EAC has posted DIY speakers, Samba and Overnight Sensation measurements

    Pity! I guess there's always the C-Notes for PE to fall back on to. Wondering if Erin will test some of their floorstanders such as the Solstice. Those would be interesting!

    NAD D3045 Review (Integrated Amplifier)

    Aye! Seriously, more lifestyle integrated amps need this functionality. The only reason I'm still in the Sonos ecosystem is the ease of switching between TV and music streaming in my living room without needing any extra remotes.

    Douk Pre-amp Tube Rolling (Russian 6N3P-E)

    Cool analysis, especially on the humming. That has been my experience with the Bottlehead Crack as well. Thought I just had defective tubes the first time around. Looks like its just ****** tubes working as intended. Heh.

    Geshelli JNOG Review (Balanced DAC)

    Based on measurements, this looks like an ok DAC. Maybe not a recommended one, but at least one without a strong recommendation either way. Is there perhaps a chance that their BS marketing spiel has coloured the view of the product somewhat?

    Tube Rolling: Does it Make a Difference?

    Ah, was just going to ask if an experiment could be done on an amp instead of a DAC. Didn't realise there was one with a preamp already. Was there any FR change from the Mullard? I'm curious to know about all the claims about certain tubes being warmer than others. I've got a Bottlehead Crack...

    ASR Directiva Open Source Speaker Review

    this is a fantastic idea! would be great to walk through the thinking behind the design process, choice of drivers, etc. i know it's all the the thread, but video's a fun medium too, and great to hear thoughts after the fact and next steps from here.
