I have a complete build video for this, but I wanted to go ahead and share what the working product looks like. It doesn’t make a ton of sound using the setup I have here with a Schiit Audio Magni2 driving the plasma speaker.
In the photo below we have 4x Burson Audio V5-OPA-D, 4x Burson Audio V5-OPA-S, 3x V6-OPA-D “Vivid” along with two Orange Amplification discrete (Dual-DIP).
