Nice wood working! But what's with those funny looking outlets? ;)
Proper ones ... not like the little shaving sockets you get in the US that give out a blue spark any time you unplug something.\

Looks lovely Bill .. what's inside?

Hi Tom,

This uses various X and Y caps and a very heavy guage star grounding system. All wiring was done in 10GA vintage Western Electric just because I can lol. I avoided any chokes in this because my view is clean just enough and no more - mainly to avoid any restriction on dynamics. The connectors are Furutech rhodium ncf.

Hi All,

I have been developing a new mains conditioner. Just finished the burnishing process and happy with the finish
Looks great Bill... super nice and very bespoke. Dare I ask are there any other proprietary materials inside :eek:... I’ve been thinking of something similar but using laminated bamboo and also potting up the internals in a copper tray and also toying with adding tourmaline granules and green silicon carbide to the resin mix... for fear of being flung with kitty litter I might just keep that bit quiet if I do.

I do have a few cheeky extras in there lol.

Funny you mentioned the potting thing. I was just testing an epoxy formulation on Friday!

Bamboo would also be a nice material. I like to use tone woods wherever I can hence using Indian Rosewood with ebony splines.

The rosewood does look sensational and has cultural value in the crafting with tone woods as well. Nice.

Also am very much looking forward to the unveiling of your diy horns when you do. The realm of diy horns is most interesting stuff. Both good and inspirational.
