1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    It took me a time to figure it out.

    Go to the wiki link, register on the site, under the login link top right, iirc. Once you are logged in you can edit the table.

    IIRC each board will soak up 2V of DC, I only use one board before my Balanced Mains Transformer to supply my entire rig.

    Keep the thread updated when you try it/them to report on any sonic benefits.

    The copper in the PCB is massive, so you need plenty of heat..

    Hi Alan,
    I had problems as it wouldn't verify my login details, I posted a message on the DIY Audio thread and Pers emailed me and verified my details.
    I was then able to log on to the GB page

    When you "edit" to register your interest you have to go to the bottom of the page and click on then "Edit" icone
    then scroll down the page almost to the bottom and enter your details on the next available line which begins: User I Country I 0 I 0 I
    just fill in the first 3 columns i.e. your user name, country and quantity of boards required

    Hope this helps

    Having read Rod Elliott’s pages on this I think I am going to give it a miss.
    His looks like a much more compact and economical option.
    Cheers Andy.

    Am I at risk of destroying my system ?

    I am planning an active system using mono "QUDOS" modified Naim 110's with Les' minicaps.
    My system will require 3 mono 110's for each channel and an active crossover for each channel.
    Looking at what you have done with 3 power outlets, could I run 4 power outlets off it ?
    (i.e. for 3x "110s" and 1x active crossover)
    If so then 2 boards will suffice for each channel, the other option is to get 4 DC blocking boards and put 2 in each case and run 2 power outputs off each board.

    Thanks in advance for any advice

    I had not, until fairly recently, really noticed hum on my naim kit, but since going active and going from one Hicap and a 250 to two Hicap and two 250 I notice considerable hum on occasions. It comes and goes, but it is annoying when in a quiet passage of music it starts up, really puts you off the moment! Hoping a couple of these will solve my problems. Was going to stick a plug on one end a socket on the other and run my diy hydras probably so 250s off one and hicaps off the other ... thanks for the heads up on the group buy!

    The limitation is the current through the filter. The DCT03 (mentioned here) has 12 A capacity through the bypass diodes and the caps themselves can handle approx. 30 amps.

    @peranders Hi P-A, I guess you never quite got enough interest to hit a threshold, is this group buy dead or just resting? Would appreciate an update if you are able, thanks!
