    That's the beauty of DIY, sometimes I just go down to my workbench and bath in the possibilities

    Hahahaha!

    I decided that no matter what, Quasimodo is like 15 parts so I should find the time to at least get that done.

    I was tempted to build one too, but have been using more SMPS supplies.

    I am as well for the small stuff but for FW amps and Wolverine I'll be using trafos.

    Do let us know what you think of the wolverine, was tempted but too much stuff already. The only one I am waiting for is the XA252 as that may replace the F4 (or I will rebuild sissy and get rid of the demons = one channel drifts a little, nothing crazy(70mV ish) but more than I would like)

    Well I got on mousers case and had them send me the parts of my order they did have now... had to make another small order of mostly smd resistors, waste of shipping money ;( and I just dont have/can't seem to source 2 miniature relays in through hole form... I may have to just get some surface mount versions and solder them to the vias ;/

    Also don't have the main transformers yet. Mounting holes are for R cores but it sure would be more convenient to source toroids ;/

    But I have gotten this thing under way... semi pass related f5x preamp.

    Very cool. Patrick's engineering is a masterpiece. Shoot me a dm with the relay part numbers, I have a bunch of random stuff.

    My engineering on the other hand is a little questionable. I messed up measuring the cutout holes on this one, just aligned for the holes if it were backwards... still looks okay from the outside I suppose.

    I would prefer I had tabs on my iec inlet so they would be covered by the connectors but these were what I had on hand for this sized cutout. Pretty sure I have some chassis mount fuse holders around here somewhere...

    Getting really close... missing some smd caps because I had the BOM for an older revision of the main digital pcb and the schematic only covered part of it. Have to try and fit smd versions of the mute relays to the through hole vias. If that doesn't work I will leave sockets in and hope that I can fit the relays in at a later date without having to take the whole thing apart. It should work fine without them just no mute functionality.

    Also gotta drill some holes to mount the toroids and do a bunch of testing before wiring up the amp chassis. PSU chassis is not so hard to work in even with all the walls and wires in place... amp chassis practically everything is nigh unreachable if the walls are in place ;/
