    There is a lot of technique in that case.

    Little bump on this

    Im intrigued by the rack equipment again could you give a rough explanation on what they do and how they improve sound quality? or if they don't improve quality what they show you?

    This is so cool one of my personal favourites so far :)

    I also have taken great interest in this build, a great read!

    Is this a 2 channel amp then? Do you use it just for music?

    Hello, soory for my late answer ... :)

    A litlle explanation :

    The convecter is configured as "sample rate convecter". Input in 48kHz 16bit and Output in 96kHz 24bit.

    ----> From convecter to the analyser I use AES output in XLR.

    ----> From analyser : AES output to the crossover.

    The crossover configuration :

    Tweeter Davis Acoustics TW26K left and right (chanel 3 et 6) cut at 3500Hz
    Medium Monacor SPH135Kep left and right (chanel 3 et 6) cut between 450 and 3500Hz
    Boomer Monacor SPH300Ke left and right (chanel 3 et 6) cut between 20 - 450Hz

    ---> Crossover output to the pre-amplifier MV-06 6 chanels.

    ---> And from the pre-amplifier to the 3 amplifier :


    Ampli 1 : Boomer and Medium left
    Ampli 2 : Boomer and Medium right
    Ampli 3 : Tweeter left and right.

    The frequences are cut very precisely, no probleme with the speakers impedance, the sound quality is clearely better than a passive crossover system.

    It is a 2 channel 3-way system, I use it only for music... :)

    Tks :)

    The half R/C on the table is a very old model... The car was destroyed... I rebuilt the rear in wood in order to see the mecanical parts ... :)

    man thats some nice audio kit and build. Just one thing, even with the nice metal isolators, does the bass bin not send vibration through your machine? I'd be more inclined to place it on a shelf, much like the audiophile turntable shelves.

    You are right, some vibration are going through the case. But for the moment I have no choice and no place...
