Destino is a simple but effective 3HP Eurorack headphone amplifier. It is intended to be a cost and size efficient version of an essential module. At only €40, it is intended to help budget conscious folks start their first rack, while also allowing more established modular synth folks to get a second or third system going. It has a single mono input and stereo output, controlled by a volume knob. It is also designed to be easy and fun to put together, so is an ideal kit for DIY novices.
The circuit and PCB are simple and easy to assemble, with a clear silkscreen and all through hole components, making this a nice beginner kit for those starting out in building their own Eurorack modules.
Destino has a black and white panel inspired by a classic ‘Hick’s Hexagon’ design (created by Mr. Hicks and made famous by a spooky carpet). Though the unit ships with a purple knob, this is mounted on a standard 6.35mm round shaft, so is easy to customize with different colours and shapes (check out Thonk for nice alternatives).
