Pete B Posted April 28, 2006 Report Share Posted April 28, 2006 I have a Hafler DH-110 that I built from the kit many years ago. I saw and heard it before I bought, but did not like it after building it and seeing what was on the inside. It does have *very* impressive specs. It was designed around the time when poly and low ESR electrolytic caps were coming into use and uses some in the signal path and power supply. However, there are 3 electrolytics in the signal path for each channel of the line stage. The phono section also has electrolytics caps, there are 1000 uF caps as emitter resistor shunts.Header connectors are used internally and one became intermittent in this unit.I always thought that the mute circuit was odd, anyone else notice this?I used this DH-110 on and off over the last 10 years or so and recently it started putting out what seemed to be a full rail pulse on power up. This went away after using it, could be an electrolytic cap that reformed, don't know.Pete B. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
