    All of my CD, BR players and discs are in storage in the attic. I struggled with this for a long time. Years. But when I turned 60 I found myself spending more time searching for CDs, songs and movies than I did listening or watching. Sometimes I never found what I was looking for. I have hundreds of CDs and have never been very organized. For that reason I bought a good DAC and a subscription to Tidal and I also have Netflix and Amazon Prime. No Cable. Just internet. Like I said I struggled with The decision for a long time but to be clear @ 62 years old my ears cannot tell the difference and the convenience is well worth it to me. I have never looked back.
    This might be of interest to you:

      Chinese amp cases (from China). Arrived very quickly in the context of shipped from China. Fairly good quality, thick front face. For the Amp Camp Amps. Some scuffs and dings on some inside surfaces, exterior very nice. Haven't checked out the hardware. I'll do a thread when the parts kits arrive (January). About $60 each, Amazon Prime. Free shipping.

        Just a suggestion... There is much less on Talk Talk than Diyaudio.com with respect to amps. If you are going to build the Amp Camp amps and are willing to document it you should start a separate thread. I've thought about the F5 several times but have yet to pull the trigger. Maybe your build will finally get me over the edge.

        [Edit: My Bad! I read your post on my phone and completely missed that you had said that. Doh!]

        That's my plan as stated. This is a DAC thread, just threw some pics up because I had mentioned this project earlier in this thread, and these cases arrived much sooner than expected. DIYaudio says parts kits in January.

      Got my Magni/Modi combo last week - went with the Heresy variation. Pretty happy with the combo for headphone listening at the computer. Made a little stand out of some scrap walnut and BB ply - looks pretty sitting on the desk

        Throw a picture up if you don't mind. My Modius sits on the two Outlaw amps. They barely get warm.

      Sweet. Just be sure they both get plenty of airflow. Hot little buggers.

        djg This one has Rosewood legs. The finish went on too thick so it needs to be sanded down and touched up.

          Thank you. Very elegant. DIYing little projects like this is very satisfying.

        Don't be shamed by using a cheap DACs many cheaper DACs outperform more expensive "exotic" ones.
