    Only the one thing, and that wasn't built internally by me either, but I'm proud of my first attempt at cheap recasing.

    Well...you _did_ ask so I'll bore you all to death!



    This is my CD Pro2 based CD transport. Bought form Daisy Laser as a mechanism and the controller board. I built the power supplies and the case. Metalwork for the case came from Schaeffer in Germany to my own spec. Soon after building this I discoverd SqueezeBoxes. Thanks Neal.



    And the SqueezeBox Receiver based player. SBR feeds into a reclocking circuit based around a Tent Labs XO3 and D flip-flops and then on into the Pedja Rogic TDA1541A DAC pcb. Output buffer is provided by Hawk Audio's MP-DAC output stage.



    WAD 300B PushPull clone. I went for a tagstrip based system instead of the pcbs as originally specced. Great sounding amp!!



    And my IPL S5TL Golds. Built from pre-veneered wood kit. I'm not much of a woodworker. Very nice sounding speakers.





    WAD HD83 Headphone amp. (Pre-WD one)



    Hawk Audio MP-DAC III Kit DAC. Great DAC. Would've still been using it as-is but got into the TDA1541 chip a couple of years after building the MP-DAC and steered a path to non-oversampling that I've not recovered from! Hawk's buffer stage and psu are in my current SqueezeBox/TDA1541A hybrid unit and I can always go back to the Crystal based DAC pcb if I feel like it.



    WAD 2A3 PSE amp. 2003. Wanted a single ended sound, eventually went back to Kit6550 and then onto the 300B PP that I'm using now.



    WAD Kit6550 Amp. 2001 My 2nd kit after building the WAD Kel84. This version is as it was just before I sold it recently. Very much beefed up with Blackgate WKzs, etc.



    WAD Phono2/PSU2 with the PSU part built on hardwired tagstrips.

    And finally....see if anyone can guess what this is:





    Oh well, ok. It's nothing to do with audio. It's my own design remote speed controls for Scalextric! Little tx/rx radio boards from Maplin and PIC microcontrollers at each end to send the speed signal in serial form from the hand controllers to the box pictured, which drives the track. It was a blast being able to walk around while driving the cars! That was back in my pre-DIY audio days!

    Fantastic, chaps. Keep 'em coming - it's just what we're looking for!

    Well done, Leo. Keep up the good work

    Sorry Marco. I have linked it so now you can see all the Hi-Fi related tat I have / had lying around... Obviously the pic was taken a while ago before final glueing.

    Ah, that's better. I recognise that room and those excellent speakers

    Marco.

    P.S What does "linled" mean?
