DIY desktop audio system

Published: June 18, 2019

This is the audio system I listen to music on during the time I spend at the computer.

Currently the amplified and its power supply are different and I have also added a linear power supply for the DAC.

When I get the new components looking right, I am going to add photos and information on the upgrade.

The loudspeaker boxes are by the “Overnight sensations” project, the amp (at the time the photos were taken) is Hifimediy T1-M TK2050. The power supply is of some unknown brand with parameters – 24V 13A / 12V 2A.

My main goal was to make things as compact as possible and at the same time keep the power supply and the amp separate, so that I could use either of them when needed. From all integral amplifiers (D class) I have had so far, this one appealed to me most, so I chose it for the purpose.

I like the loudspeaker boxes, at least because after I made them, I started rediscovering heavier music.

At first I intended to use natural veneer for the finishing but due to the lack of time I had to paint, assemble and finish it in literally a few hours. That is why I coated it with film, which I also used for the rest of the elements.

The stands are made of 10mm MDF and currently full of coins for a richer sound. 🙂

The vector files for a laser cutting on the steel parts are available for download.

The entire setup on my desk.
