Me too Rich, I particularly love your two channel rig. . . very, very nice!!! One question, where is your turntable?
LOL OK, Ill put your name on it.
Mike, what effect does changing input capacitance have on sonics? I read an article on how to determine the input capacitance setting, and it also said to experiment with different settings.
Thanks Joe! Still waiting for the top rack section. It is supposed to arrive today.
I had the TT set up on a small table in front of the rack just to get an idea of what it would sound like. It was not vey stable. I wouldn't even let the dog walk around with it set up like that.
I didn't have enough shot from the reloading days to fill another rack section and went to buy a bag. Sweet jebus, it has gone up in price!
My oppo 970-HD dvd player with Underworld inside.
where is the powersupply in this one ?
I have one. Underworld inside??? Is that a modification? I know of Underwood.
This thread is for audio gear guts, not nuts. Would you mind removing that please?
Well, finally got around to doing the usual internal checks/adjustements on my new big Parasound. Took a few shots while it was apart.
This is the amp that started to make a name for Parasound, and its widely known that its the Father of the Halo A-21.
The inside is kinda busy, but when you look close, its not overly complicated. There's just a lot of everything, build overkill. You can't see the output section because its attached to the heatsinks and beneath the boards. A shame, because its got 12 sankens per channel (6 matching pair). This is a true dual mono design that shares only a power cord. Twin torroids are stacked on top of each other. 4 big 25000uf caps buried underneath the separate power supply boards for each channel.
Here's the insides of my Parasound HCA-2200.
Notice the massive stacked torodial trannies and dual sets of caps.
Everything else seems pretty bread & butter, just on a bigger scale.
Anyone know where I can get some nice metal binding post nuts to replace the crappy plastic ones that are breaking? I'm gonna post this question in another thread since this one is way looooong.
ETA: Seems like the MkII has almost double the little white, ceramic looking things that are part of the output sections. That and the switches for un/balanced seem to be the only non-cosmetic differences that my untrained eye can see. ***BTW, my 2200 is SDA-safe.***
