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.
A portable amp wearing a CF dress.
Excuse me while I clean my pants.
Oh looks fun, maybe I should make one.
I would so make something like that if my soldering skills weren't so crap lol, I need to get a better 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.
omg wow! i hope some day can i make somting like this !....
Progress is awesome.
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
Nice soldering skills. I can't wait for your review lol.
it's not that hard with a kit
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.
You even lined up the colors on the resistors. OCD confirmed! Welcome to the club, brother.
what? you don't line up the resistors cheaps? hell, i would have done all the resistors before even putting any other component in, esp. the ic's
@.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.
Bad Langer! I hope you grounded yourself first! lol. Soldering skillz +1 btw
Hrm... I'm not english native, so someone can tell me if OCD si "Obsessive Compulsive Disorder" or I made a mistake searching in google?
I suppose that's right, but...
Yup that's right
