This thread has gone eerily quiet. Did everyone get electrocuted while building their Crack?
Tbh, I've only looked at the contents to check them off the list and that's it!
Quite slack but I have everything ready to go really, just need to jump in and start it
I've been enjoying crack.... it's damn good, planning on trying the speedball next week when i got some free time. Theres also some dodgey wiring/soldering i'd like to re-do.
If people could reccomend 2 or 3 tubes i could try out to test a variety of noise that'd be appreciated.
So anyone here got one of these working with some DT990's? If so how does it sound? is there a noticeable improvement? does it power them properly?
Still havent assembled mine.
Now I finally have a soldering station and multimeter.
Beefy79 - how does your Crack sound?
I'm damn keen to try this kit and a bit gutted I missed the group buy, by over a year!
I'd be definitely interested in an unbuilt Crack kit...
I doubt beefy comes on this forum much, he's not in Aus anymore.
There should be heaps of info on the crack on numerous audio and headphone forums.
Should look at this http://nwavguy.blogspot.com.au/2011/08/o2-summary.html
I'm loving my crack, waiting for a break from study (and some funds) so i can do the speed-ball and some film caps, new jacks and pot (and check my old, dodgy soldering maybe re-do the signal wire).
Hey beefy, got a DAC recommendation for someone that's still a bit of a DIY n00b.
Wow, haven't been here for over a year. Get an e-mail notification about posts being made and find that the fur is flying. I built the crack, did the speedball upgrade and am loving it. I think they've just increased the price of the kit from $99 to $125 US but if you hurry up you might get it at the old price. It was a fantastic experience building it and if you can paint by numbers, you can build this thing. The manual is made for electronic morons like myself.
Nice to see Beefy's still around and hasn't been buried in some avalanche somewhere in Canada.
A DAC invariably requires surface mount soldering, so start with something cheap to get the hang of it. AlienDAC, GrubDAC, SkeletonDAC etc.
Does being stuck inside because it is bloody cold count?
Haha, got an email update as well!
I'm still yet to put this beast together. Obviously quite slack, but at least I've read some of the instructions and was a little hesitant to build after the warnings!
Will get around to it one weekend whilst someone else is in the house
I'd be interested in one of these too. Don't spose there might be a group buy round 2?
That's two of us already!
Good to see this thread is still active.
Been wanting to get one of these for like... a few years now haha.
LOL I haven't come around to building mine yet!
How much for a kit?
So after almost 2 years I finally got myself a soldering station. Last night finished soldering the sockets, today I'll do the components.
Seems to be going smooth as butter except for doing a solder when it said "do not attach"
I just hope I can find that wood I put aside for painting
God, I still haven't constructed this - I'm so ashamed /cry
I think I might give the kit to a techy friend to put together for me (she likes constructing things like that).
I would love to join in, if there is another group buy for this.
