    First steps of modification of the Neurochrome are ready to go!

    These two tasty Valab rca sockets are mounted on individual aluminium blanks, carefully drilled and ready to go. No urgent rush as the Khozmo won't be here untill Friday.

    Spotfire hookup wire has been delivered too.

    I'll not start it just yet, as Visitors are coming for a little listen tomorrow, so I may make a start on Friday and try and do everything in one go. I will have all the bits that I need!

    Exciting.

    Looks like I've got some sorting out to do.

    A cousin of mine recently moved to a small house on the island of Anti Paros, Greece.

    Said he'd send his CDs as he didn't need them anymore. I didn't expect 3 and half boxes!! Decent set of B&W 602 S2 came with them.

    One needs a tweeter though.

    Busy morning before I go off to hospital for my preop

    Decided that as I be hanging on to the Neurochrome preamp for the foreseeable future, I'd have a play with input options for the new chassis it's going in. I haven't picked the chassis yet but I am really disliking the pcb being mounted to the back of the case via the input sockets.

    It's causing a bend in the pcb so it's obviously under strain.

    On the rebuild, I'll have 1x output, 2x balanced inputs, 1x unbalanced input and the Raspberry Pi, Pecan Pi combo will be hard wired in.

    All I need is the Khozmo to arrive and I can finally hear it in its full glory.
