Soon to be released (pics coming soon):
Dual mono Stereo amp 25 watt per channel (50 into 4 ohms) pure class A amp with rca inputs or if you buy two amps then I can configure them into 200 watt a channel (400 into 4) mono block balanced only amps. The balanced amps will sound better and give more power but must be hooked up with balanced source/preamp.
Some of the goodies that are probable include:
All the above is around $1300 in parts....the goal is to sell it for $2500. This is unheard of value, even at direct wholesale. Usually at retail it is 6-7 times the parts cost.
Possible? options could include: nude Vishays, Bybee goodies, Audio Magic Pulse Gen ZX, etc.
Right now (4-14-2015) the proto is doing things I never heard before.....really palpable and real. Every instrument in its own space and wider soundstage than ever before....super inner detail. It should get way better with all the goodies I am about to try in the next few weeks. I will be taking orders soon. This amp should be world class. There is no solid state amp that I know of that has as simple a circuit combined with all the tweaky execution this will have. World's firsts include: binding post bypass system, damped/isolated input jacks, damped heatsinks, WA Quantum chips, Mad Scientist Kegs and footers.
The goal with this amp is to make the most transparent transistor amp that I can. This is the first product since my 1995 "Hand Made DAC" that is totally my own design and done all out. I will try everything possible to make this amp sound as good as possible.
Possible 50 watt mono blocks and 200 watt balanced bridged mono blocks (all in the same chassis).
