    Cool speakers, simple, yet great looking design, reminds of some visual illusion pictures.

    Cheers guys tyvm :thumb:


    I knew once this mod was operational enuf it would end up on my desk asap :D But the beauty of it is it's giving me time to think about last few additions.

    The speakers while not painted yet are sounding amazing and really handle some volume and put out some really nice deep bass. I recently brought the Topping MX3 Dac/Amp/Headphone Amp. And while it's a great AIO Desktop solution it lacks a the solid punch these speakers need. The headphone stage dosn't quiet stack up to my Schiit Modi / Magni Combo.

    So.......

    Hyper Amp ! ......
    Well Amp/Dac :)

    I always loved the look of the Peechtree Audio gear so went with that style with a little Hyper-ness thrown in.


    The victims being a 2020A+ amp and a Muse Dac chosen for the power and the sound and seem to combine pretty well.

    The first thing i'll do is chuck the plastic knobs for some sexier ones

    The new housing is pretty simple with a slight angle to match the case mod and speakers.

    There's a fair bit of work to do inside still and a active fan and back panel will round it out.

    A single 12V / 6 amp psu will supply more than enuf grunt for both amp and dac.

    Some gap filling sanding and primer work.......

    And some high fill... then left to sit for a week before a final wet sand and paint with the speakers and side panels :grin:

    :lol: Shipping from Australia. I'm more worried about the effects of having the phone in my front pocket all the time.
    ...Not sure if that's speaker wire or print filament. You would be pretty unstoppable with a printer.
    I do need to slap together a work site boombox.
