I read a lot of it and its a lot of good stuff, but you don't have to go thru all of it to do a build. So if you want to get started straight away, just focus on the first post that has the schematic, use EARSE inductors and caps (these are the consensus if you sift thru the thread and I can confirm they work/sound great), and ARCOL or similar power resistors, and then read my posts on page 23 about orienting the pieces and avoiding placing ferrous parts like screws close to inductors. And when you buy parts, I suggest also get a 33 ohm 50 watt in addition to the others so you can tame the sizzle if needed or wanted. You're gonna love the box. I'm using Neural DSP for my simulated amps and they're among the very best out there at this point and my real amps thru this box are definitely better.Mike, you convinced me to try this circuit instead of the real speaker thing! Niw I have to read the whole thread
Hi Mike,A bit of history is that people tried the idea you have several decades ago with less than great results which is what led to these types of circuits being developed.
The ones I saw were mic'd.Back then there were no IRs. So did they use mics inside the box or a DI box?
Just leave the switch out of the plan in the first post.hi
i want to built the reactive load but im not good at schematics and i wanted to ask if anyone can make a layout for this without the switch for resistive/reactive i will not use resistive so only reactive
banzaiJust leave the switch out of the plan in the first post.
I'm interested in building this as well, but the most difficult part seems to be getting the right components. I tried Mouser but they don't seem to have those winded inductors. Can someone point me to a (European) distributor?
The plot looks close enough when I model it with a 40H primary inductance (the Edcor 10K:600 xfmr specs out that way).I reckon the loading is fine. No matter how you set that, the signal to the transformer is through at least the 5k which is plenty high enough to have no effect on tbe amp. Im interested and not sure about whether thd inductance of the tranny will affect the line out tone, and what sort of level range you'll get.
