    A little something to cheer up HTR.

    My portable headphone amp has arrived. It's a Decware ZenHead kit.

    I can't wait to get this baby put together... I hope to make my own carbon case for it this week.

    Here it is... sort-of

    If you'll excuse me I have a date with my soldering iron.

    I built stuff like that back in my college degree program except we only had vacuum tubes(valves). Made the stuff a bit bigger.

    Most excellent Jesse!

    PS: Can we get some feedback on the still thing?

    Progress + Caveat:

    First the Progress

    The the Caveat:
    Bloody Decware forgot to pack 3x10k resistors!
    Ahhh, but as chance has it I have a collection of resistors.
    However chance is a real son-of-a-gun - my 10k drawer is empty.
    Message sent to Decware requesting expedited replacements - but I'll just take a trip to the hobby shop tomorrow.

    Progress is awesome. :thumb:
    Caveat is just a minor niggle. I half expected you to take some carbon dust and break out a multimeter to make your own resistors :p

    We never mind or censor people suggesting somewhere else - but it was written as a blatant "go here to receive love and join our community and win prizes" which we simply remove. We have to maintain a zero tolerance to spam and blatant pimping, regardless of who posts it Im afraid.

    If it's that important to let people know another community, there's nothing wrong with putting a "Watercooling specialists: http:///" in a signature.

    Bad Langer, where is the IC socket you should have used to solder to the PCB rather than direct contact of hot solder to the poor little IC, i hope at least you used a small heatsink to protect it, like a small clip or something.

    @.Fatality. - Truth be told mate it's a fairly simple kit if you have a hand for soldering. Thanks!

    @stonedsurd - If I could I so would man. Thanks for the vote of confidence.

    @Nooby4Ever - True words mate.

    @Bindibadgi - Sincere apologies Bindi, I didn't realize it when I posted. Sorry.

    @Burnout21 - I didn't have any sockets that size on hand and I'm an eager beaver. Hoever I licked my finger and used it as a heatsink actually, but I was really quick and I used a digital temp controlled soldering station. Thanks for watching my back though man... and welcome to RRR ;).

    @Cheapskate - Mad OCD my friend - a place for everything and everything -parallel, color coded, arragned by size and date of purchase- in its place . hahaha

    @tominated - Normally I'd do the resistors first. Since I had to solder the opamps I figured I do the 'hardest' part last... If I had of heard any crinkling noises (bye bye opamp) I didn't want to have to waste my time any more than necessary.

    Thanks all!
