Re: TKD pots

I'm also using another Muses implementation, this time based on some boards from DIY Audio, in a 2P29L preamp I'm slowly putting together,

Re: TKD pots

I built a buffered passive volume control using the Academy Audio Muses kit - works really well and seems transparent, The buffer uses vintage BUF-03 devices and has plenty of current to drive the input of an amplifier, in fact sufficient to use it as a heaphone amp.

Re: TKD pots

I'm just putting together a switched attenuator for my SIT amplifier project - I picked up a really good NOS 25way MBB switch on ebay for a few pounds and I'll build it as a shunt type with a 25K Charcroft in the main position and the rest using PSP metal films.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Sorry to hear about your bad start to the day Ant - hopefully things can only get better for you.

There's even a song about it, and the band are even wearing tank tops.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Tank museum trivia time.

The two heaviest tanks at the museum weigh 78 and 80 tons - which country built them?

Re: Nothing In Particular

I had a boys day out yesterday with a couple of colleagues - we're all of a similar age and degree of wrinkling. We went to the Tank Museum at Bovington;

Well worth a visit if you're down in this part of the world.
