Mainline Build & Sounding Great
« on: July 10, 2022, 07:33:43 PM »
Thought I would share my Mainline build. 
Had some minor problems with the initial build but easily solved with time, patience, and support from the forum. 
Details on the troubleshooting of my build can be found https://forum.bottlehead.com/index.php?topic=14226.0

Thank you, Paul and Karl
Sounding great so far. 

Next project will be a balanced cable for the HD800s.

The HIFIMAN HE1000se with factory supplied balanced cable sound great as well.  No problem driving these planar's. Bass has the right amount of impact and the overall presentation is speedy and musical.

Hi.
I was looking at other Mainline builds posted and discovered others show the builds from the circuit side.
Thought I would share as well.
