Hi Guys   Thought you would like an update on the preamp and integrated amplifier.   Currently I am buried in the design of the stand alone pre-amp, which is moving ahead very well

With respect, I disagree entirely I think it is pretty well established that this will be kept as simple as possible and I have not seen any evidence here of people wanting DAC, 12v switching or

 hi, you mentioned about using tkd potentiometer they do make a motorized version.

 

Hi Ray

 

Yes I have seen those; a bit more pricey as well.

It might be I can offer this as an option, with the motorized pot and remote control circuitry.

Early days yet, so we will see how this pans out :)

 

A show of hands might be helpful, how many would actually like to see remote control volume?

I'd raise hand for a remote control version.

Personally happy W/O volume Remote as my front end has this feature

Maybe as an upgrade, like the upgrade to 100w and an option

 

Would like to know what price differences are between 

1, base model

2, base model with power upgrade

3, power upgrade model with volume pot

4, power upgrade model with motorised pot and remote ability, possibly remote ability for input selector as well (covers all the bases) :) 

Knowing these things would help

I like amps and very much a "collector" of best quality Amps regardless of operating voltage (but that's another story)

The current dual die device output stage is capable of 150 watts power output no problem.

However I could make provision for an extra set output devices for those that like to have a little extra into the lower impedance loads, say 2 ohms.

and that with a larger power transformer could make for a very compact powerful beast, all for a little extra of course. :)

Thanks for the rough price guide! Can now calculate how many meals to skip before Christmas to save up for this!

@Aussieamps  Andrew are you displaying your produce at the show in Nov? Seems like a no-brainer with so much interest from an educated audience here(not me though obviously:() already and a good few hundred more coming to the show not to mention all the through traffic.

Prices below 3k always elicit interest, that's Holden Ford prices right there or Mazda Toyota if you prefer.

I'll be in the market come Christmas hopefully and a good eyeful of your models will help the decision process no end.

When you are ready, I can make a substantial deposit on the Silver Supreme model with motorised control. Would pay extra for the 12AU7 pre stage ;)

Almost!

 

 

Durif

Durif is actually a cross between the noble grape Syrah and the less well-known Peloursin. It was created at the University of Montpellier in the 1880s by a gentleman named Dr. Durif - a nurseryman who was looking to develop a grape variety resistant to downy mildew, one of many scourges of the vine.

Although only a few token plantings remain in France today, Durif is both successful and popular in Australia where it makes characterful, pitch-black wines. Even long-term Shiraz fans are recognising the appeal of the incredibly dark, powerful wines from Durif.

This sounds just perfect. An amplifier with the lot. Any views on timing?

I might have to consider what to do with my DAC...

@webs0r

I am aiming to have the integrated amplifier available around October 2017 if all goes well.

There is quite a lot of development in the IR remote control volume and input selection to be done and then integrating it into the pre-amp PCB.

Also a bit of chassis redesign to be done as well. A lot of which I have already started to do.:)

Anthony, I was wondering if the remote input select was necessary? Just volume control is all I would need.

 

Are you finding the demands from all of us a bit tricky? Would you rather be dealing with high-end super amps than building modestly priced integrated's? Anyhow, I am enjoying this thread & wish you all the best.

@mikey d I guess it is one of those features that is expected to have. :)

While I like the convenience of remote control, it does add to the PCB real estate needed and yes it is not easy to please everyone when it comes to features.

I am more of a minimilist type of person, so just as happy to just get up from my seat if I have to change the input or volume control.

I enjoy building both types of amplifiers, it is fun to see how much good stuff you can get into an integrated without actually taking away from it as well.

Shown below is a high end version of the 050 power amplifier, has a 800VA power transformer mounted in the top of it and produces 150 watts per channel 8 Ohms and

260 watts into 4 ohms.

This is one of Five Holton power amplifiers that will be installed into a new home in Switzerland in August 2017 :)

 

More to come soon!

      Selling my Bryston 4BSST2 + MPS2 + BP26, the complete set was brought from Carlton Audio Visual in 2016.  It still has 16 years warranty remaining on the units. Unfortunately, I do not have the original packaging, but can organise shipping.  The units are in very good condition, no remote is included as this was a factory option from Bryston. 
       
      If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Willing to separate, but preference given to those wanting to buy the complete set.

       The Rotel RB-1582 MKII amp (RRP $2799) is in perfect working condition and is pristine in appearance.  The unit was purchased from a local dealer in late 2018. My job roles changed since the purchase and I barely have time with my gears since.
      The unit is extremely well taken care of and was covered with cloth while not in use (I tend to be away from home for weeks!).
      The amp is barely used for 120 hrs in total. So, make sure you allow more burn-in time.
      I have all the original boxes, manuals etc.
       
      Details:
       
      Rotel’s largest stereo amplifier at 200 watts per channel provides the massive current to drive the very largest hi-fi systems effortlessly. And like its smaller brother, the RB-1582 MKII has been designed to excel at resolving the subtle details in music as well as supplying the brawn required for extremely dynamic passages. It is able to achieve this difficult dual requirement because of the meticulous attention paid to circuit design and parts selection.

      The RB-1582 MKII ‘s high-end performance begins with an extremely large toroidal transformer combined with a total of 60,000uF storage capacity in special “slit foil” capacitors to provide completely stable power to the output stage. Slit foil capacitors have the ability to charge and discharge extremely quickly, thereby ensuring signal fidelity during orchestral crescendos or repetitive kick-drum impacts, for example. Both left and right channel construction are laid out in a mono block design (after the toroidal transformer) and all grounding is terminated in a star pattern on a copper grounding plate to ensure low signal to noise. The output stage is a discrete design that consists of 10 high current bipolar transistors per channel. Input options consist of both balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connectors.
      The RB-1582 stereo power amplifier is yet another outstanding example of Rotel’s Balanced Design Concept and will form the heart of a very impressive stereo or home theater system for years to come.
       
      Specifications:
       
      Power Configurations: 2 x 200 watts (20Hz-20kHz, <0.03%, 8 Ohms)
