Default Little Boop

Hi,
My little Dot headphone amp although sounding excellent does come in a boring case.
I thought I would quirk it up a bit and fit it into a Boop box.
Inspiriation comes from Andrew Ivimey's Quality Street amp.

Looks 'real cute', a huge improvement.

It uses 6C19s doesn't it? I have a few if you need any. I assembled a number; they are dead cheap and went a different way into OTL, as we saw at last eggfest.

My quality street amp is still on the go. It isn't bad!

For my next trick, I am thinking of adding some toroidal transformers to the PsuhPUll 6DN7 amp as 'wheels' on a dragster (or Trabant) ... well they have to go somewhere and there is nowhere else on or in the case.

You could use two Toroidals for Princess Leias hair style if you had a Star Wars bicccie tin.

I just had an idea that brought about a severe laughing fit, but I can't post details.... I clearly have a dirty mind
