Title: Ruby build pics
Post by: djmartins2 on May 18, 2004, 08:49:32 PM
Hi all,

Here are a couple of pics of my latest Ruby build.
It is a handmade walnut case with an old computer speaker,
a 9volt battery, purple LED, and the pcb stuffed in it.
It is a tight fit! I used a jrc386 and a mpf102.
What do you think?
It isn't as loud as I expected, but with such a small speaker
I expect it not to be too loud!

PS - sorry for the lack of quality on the pics, cheap digital camera
and an amateur cameraman.....
