Can't resist.  50 watts of Tripath class D beauty.  Only thing that's sweeter is my 2A3 SETs.

 

One tweak - that stick on label (about 5 of them actually, one on top of the other) to kill off the BBBL ( bloody bright blue light )

See that blank black box on the top left? That's dual Hypex NC400 monoblocks.

 

Oh yeah and the ARC 250SE power amps below.

Having seen your ARCs before,  I still think they look nice.

 

 

I think I am just gonna build a big fake box, and put huge eye-candy meters in it, and plonk a little class D behind it.

i considered the big box with mini class d inside. i would need top plate not screwed in so i can open it up to show people.

The are some Mark Lev and accuphase chassis on ebay that would have cost more than a class D module.

Never really thought of it as pink, that's just how it turned out in the photo. It's red, honest... But it's nice a thick and shaggy for my slate tiled floor.

yeah mine is like a very dark pink magenta colour. i bought it around 17 years ago, so maybe it is fading a bit?

still, very shaggy yes, and keeps me warm in the winter, i have it sitting on carpet.

$55.000 for a sound system do you think its worth it  I use a Rotel power amp paid $700 in 1998 good to know its the same brand as yours ?

This thread isn’t about the cost of systems or the relative “worth”. 
If you have a power amplifier to post then please do so. 

Perhaps you could private message @Sime and discuss?
