Nice job, bcowen! That's the same high-quality enclosure that my Zerozone 100VA PSU features. BTW, have you considered placing a set of your carbon fiber discs (with indentations for spikes) implemented as coupling discs under the tips of the brass cones?
Thanks Duster! I hadn't thought of the carbon fiber discs, but I'll give 'em a try. Thanks for the suggestion. I have one set under the Art Jota amp where they offered some nice improvements over the stock footers -- more definition in the bass, better imaging (which is a challenge with my speakers so every improvement there is welcome), and a more relaxed treble presentation that's especially noticeable on less-than-great recordings. All in all, one of those tweaks that offers sonic goodies way more than the cost would suggest. I have the other set just sitting that I was going to try under the DAC but haven't gotten around to it. Maybe I'll try them under the power supply first...
Another benefit of the 10mm x 40mm carbon fiber disc is good dynamics, especially if a *low-mass* Herbie's Audio Lab 40mm Thin grungebuster Dot with optional adhesive-backing is affixed to the bottom of the disc. BTW, I found the most profound placement of the 10mm x 40mm carbon fiber disc with a Herbie's Audio Lab 40mm Thin grungebuster Dot with optional adhesive-backing affixed to *both* sides of the disc, is between the top plate/pillars of a speaker stand and the bottom of a stand-mount monitor. It makes sense, since the substantially large carbon fiber composite disc provides excellent vibration wave blocking and self-resonance dissipation, while the *low-mass* Thin grungebuster Dot with optional *low-mass* adhesive-backing affixed to *both* sides of the disc provides a notably uncolored/linear sounding mild decoupling action.
