Newest office setup. I sold the SH-8 amp, and bought the THX. This setup is what I wanted before I started this. I didn't know it yet, but this what I was going for. I just wanted great sound, and power. This gives me both. Next is a good closed back set of headphones. Any suggestions?

Here is a bit of what the DIY stuff is looking like. Pardon the mess, the dust, and the cigarette ashes. Garage is the smoking room for the house. Small board is an AMB σ11 and the large board is the aforementioned AMB M³. A couple of R-Core style transformers hanging out behind them.
search
The board in the chassis is another AMB M³ along with a tiny AMB σ25 regulated power supply holding an AMB σ78 low noise voltage regulator. The board with all the lovely red caps is a cheap CIRY audio Ti/BurrBrown PCM1794A balanced DAC I sourced from ebay.
search
This is just a pile of freak boards. Many more of those AMB components as well as a gaggle of random Chinese PSU boards I sourced from eBay. Most of them are viable, even if I have to jumper or dead-bug.
search
Traaaaaansformers. So many transformers.
search
The board on the top left is a cheap tube preamp kit I snagged from Amazon. Came with cracked 6j1 tube, lol. The two other boards on the top are those Pete Millett Korg NuTube buffers. Everything else is relay or power related. Hey, more trafos.
search
Tuuuuuuuuubes and a few jack components.
search
Resistors, and Caps
search
Electro-mechanical, Connectors, and some more power related components.
search
Even more Jacks, Sockets, Connectors, and Terminal blocks.
search
Opamps and other chiplike objects with 4 or more pins.
search
Piles of diodes, rectifiers, and regulators. All 2 and 3 pin crap.

Waww. Seems like my dream environment. I really like to put my headphones on and spend few hours with soldering iron. Damn. I need to buy the house with garage:))) Nice. Kim
