    Spent a couple of hours on the DCB1 today,

    I now have power to the board and switches nicely fitted.

    The Khozmo is in place and just need to cut the extender bars to fit. Just measuring up for the Elma selector switch.

    I need to buy and fit two more RCA sockets too.

    This is my DCB1 built by a friend for me. I went a bit foo with Khozmo attenuator, Audio Note Tantalum resistors and Mundorf caps but it's defintely worth it!

    Orbe + SME IV + Accuphase MC-5 + Trilogy 907, Bluesound Node2 + DIY DDDAC, DIY DCB1 pre + DIY Aleph 60 monoblocks, Graham Audio LS5/9.

    Looks very well made.

    Somehow, on mine, the predrilled hole isn't central so the volume knob is off centre!!!!

    Lol, I know!! It's been dead since I broke the original off at MMA (Mixed martial arts as seen in the UFC)

    Nasty injury that, opponent trod on my foot wile my toe was folded under itself. Broke the toe and popped the nail off. It doesnt grow properly now and when I've been swimming it literally just pulls off lol. Makes the kids cringe when I do it
