  1. Pradeep, Steve Guttenberg has a youtube channel with some interviews with Nelson Pass. Part 4 of the series shows Nelsons listening room and his reference speaker is a Tannoy HPD385 DC speaker in a Jensen Imperial backloaded horn, and he has 3 different super tweeters to choose from sitting on top of each speaker. I thought this my be of interest to you and others on SNA, also I think all the interviews with Nelson are worth watching. Steve.
  2. Batty, Do you have access to a router if so use a 6mm router bit, put masking tape around where you wish to remove the required material, take 1mm off at a time job done in no time. Steve.
  3. Hi Gent's, I stumbled across this artist a little while ago thought i might share my find. Steve.
  4. Here's another preamp to consider. Tempo Electric. Universal EQ Mono Preamplifier. Steve.
  5. Andy, Yes you are 100% right the version at DiyAudio is a 20 watt amp and there is a 50 watt version also. I have built the 20 watt version and is a wonderfull sounding amp easy to build, no adjustments, and NO Unobtainium parts. If i remember correctly there is a 35 watt version using a higher rail voltage with different out put devices that was mentioned in the thread. Hugh talks about the AKSA commercial version in post #3155 DiyAudio thread. Steve.
  6. Gent's I think this might be the said Amp. AKSA LENDER p-mos hybrid Alepha over on DiyAudio. #3155. Steve.
  7. Bruce if you are talking about speakers could be. FAST (Fullrange and Subwoofer Technology) Steve.
  8. Steve, Good to hear you have the M2X up and running. If you do order the Yarra/Melbourne boards from X grab a set of Alpha 20 boards for your next project I can Highly recommend this amp, I have matched pairs of KSA992 and BC847C which i will send you if you require them. Steve.
  9. Steve, They are a bargain and the owner Julian is a pleasure to deal with. I had thought about going with Marks version but instead went with Zen Mods Bablefish M25 SissSit (or M2 on Steroids) Steve.
  10. Steve, I buy the heat sinks from Conrad Heatsinks in Melbourne and are cast in Melbourne ( They also cast pulleys ) The top cover is security screen which is around $100 for a 620 x 2100 sheet , my local glazier got this in for me and still have enough to make quite a few more amps. The base is a piece of 3mm ally sheet with 10mm holes drilled underneath for air circulation, I did find a leftover piece of ally sheet with 15mm holes punched in it at the local sheet metal fabrication place for $50 enough to make half a dozen bases. RCA jacks are Neutrik from Mouser $7 each (screw mount) AC inlets with fuse holder and switch i purchased from RS online $10 each. Speaker posts from Alliexpress $1 each pair. For the front and back cover i use what ever scrap timber i have on hand in the picture the timber is Tasmanian Myrtle recycled but a strip of plywood also works. And your time to drill and tap holes , not as professional looking as a purchased case but Still works out a lot cheaper than purchasing a case and you can build more amps. Regards Steve.
  11. Steve, Have you looked at making your own amp case. 2x Conrad heat sinks MF35 - 151 from Melbourne 2x Ally sheets 375mm x 310mm x 3mm 2x 20mm timber for front and back panel 151mm x 390mm All up around $200 AU including RCA sockets , power switch mains input , speaker terminals plus your time. I have made several amps using this method. M2 , F6 , MOFO , AKSA Alpha 20. Just another option. Regards Steve.
  12. Steve, I have the Tea Bag version of the M2 and am Very Happy with the amp, I'm using Linear Systems JFETs and dual Mono power supply. Marks Version has the different daughter boards for the front end many more choices to try. Happy Building!! Regards Steve.
  13. Eltech I use meanwell 24v 8amp smps units in a pair of MOFO mono block amps and check out Tom Christiansen from Neurochrome Audio he uses smps supplies in some of his amps. Steve.
  14. David, Joe is happy to send first class international which is by far the cheapest from the US. I buy all my wire from Joe and have done for some years now Good luck with your project. Steve.
