  1. Hi fellow travellers, Just wanted to add some clarity on how the build is progressing given I have received some very flattering PM's. Okay, I just want to confirm that the amplifier has been started up without - fingers crossed - any issues. It has NOT been connected to any speaker so I cannot make any comment regarding performance. You do not need insulating washers etc to fix the FETs to the side heat sinks. I went for 2 mm ceramic spacers and went for the pricier versions given what they are meant to do. As always there are good and bad. What I am hoping to do is subject the amplifier to some rigorous testing to see what the data yields and report back.
  2. Mate, Dont be disheartened, Having a 1 KVa transformer these days is a rarity. Many a so called hi end amplifier does not have that.
  3. Toroidy from Poland. 25 kg of 3.0Kva beastiness by itself.
  4. Lights, camera, action. Finally powered up. Thankfully no smoke or bang. Interestingly quite a few LEDs light up on the board. I'm guessing they would highlight circuit issues.
  5. You know I heard these when I bought my Maggie MMGs a number of years ago and I have to say I was thoroughly impressed. They are a damn good speaker that belies its size and massively punches above its weight. Great price as well.
  6. I have taken delivery of Chris's latest iteration. Pics to follow.
  7. Times have changed moat definitely. If you speak to Anthony he will tell you that ceramic is the best option. These spacers are 2mm thick.
  8. Not quite yet. Testing to commence soon. Photos and data to follow.
  9. Hi guys, If any member of the Stereonet family is travelling from Melbourne to Sydney in the next month and willing to transport an amplifier in the process could they please let me know. Of course you would be remunerated for your kindness. Cheers. Ozzie Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  10. Thankyou for the clarification. @Marc or other mod, could this be please moved to the "pay it forward". Apologies for incorrect placement. Ozzie

  12. If this falls through then may I be considered please. Cheers. Ozzie
  13. Nice honest amp that I have seen drive maggies well which is testament to its understated power capabilities.
