Apart from that all i can think of is buying some shit speakers e.g harbeth, linn, yamaha ns1000 and filming myself destroying them with chainsaw, axe and sledge hammer. I have a youtube channel Then putting them on a bonfire Reminds me of a drum kit i used to have. I had the brilliant idea of chopping them in half so they were only 6" deep with one head. Then they would fit inside each other for easy transportation. Well, they all fit inside each other alright. But they sounded like shiiiite. Boooooiiiiiiiinggggg is an understatement. Ended up burning them on bonfire night.
The only things i need are some more low cap speaker cables, 2 more 12" drivers, 4x 5" drivers and possibly 4 more tweeters. That is where diy can come to the rescue. If no LS6 comes up 2nd hand then i will try and make some. I know which drivers doc used, i have shit loads of bison and plasti dip.
My volume control that i am planning is my take on a stepped attenuator from hifi collective (that doc used). I will use more resistors in the lower volume range and not bother with the ones i will never need. As it will only go as loud as i chose (through resistor choice) there will be no clipping issues and speaker failures at any party my kids chose to have when they get older cos it will only go so loud
I still have plenty to do. I know what parts doc used and his wiring stratergies so it's no where near game over.
Sorry, i have plans for those boards - a six pack to drive the monstrous speakers i have planned. You are top of the list if i change my mind though
I am going to build a music centre. Everything in one baltic birch unit 60cm x 60cm x 100cm height. Everything hardwired inside it with only the record deck external. Had it all planned for a while but keep tweaking the design.
Many things to take into account;
Keep signal path between cdp, phono stage, pre and power sections as short as poss
Everything hardwired with only one power lead externally
No interconnects needed
6 channels of nva power amp
Hot rodded phono1 with 4 psu's and regulators
Volume control and source selector
12 psu's for power amps
4 psu's for phono stage
6 or 7 psu's for hot rodded Naim CD3.5
All psu's well away from everything else
Access for servicing or repairs.
I dont think anyone has done something like this on the forums. It will be a wonderful thing when i get it done. Dont hold your breath though.
