I would love to see pictures of your amp!

This amp looked very promising, then fell off the radar.

Any comments on sound quality?

I see these are used to tweak the low frequency sound. Your version might have better low frequency responce, tighter bass.
Sorry, my mistake! SXT-2 is a SS amp.

The fan isn't "on" all the time, should only turn when overheat or fullpower(use it as a speaker amp).

I bought it from Master 甩袖湯, the only way to have the beast.
And my family hand carry for me, it's almost 20kg.

Here we go~
Inside



VR is stepped, not ALPS. Resistors are Philips 1% and 0.1% for signal path.

The white MKP2000 caps is not standard

Nice finished.

Two box design, small one is power box.

Ha, pics with Supra.

See, bigggg.. heatsink in one piece. SXT-2 can drive speakers(8 ohms up).

looks quite nice. If the cooling fan is used to cool the transistors or mosfets, it's in favour of active cooling. I just made a custom active cooling system for my modded amp and it makes a huge difference.

I see there is some room to furhter enhance the amp. Hmm, i see the mosfets/transistors screwed to the bottomplate at the left and right near the parallel caps. That's why he's using a huge cooling system as bottomplate, to dissapate the heat of the transistors/mosfets. I am baffled as to why he is using active cooling in that particular place, since the transistors are not even close to the cooling system. Ah, i see, the fan sits there to actively cool the massive bottom heatsink. it was much betetr to put 2 cooling fans above the 2 x2 parallel transistors/mosfets. Direct, active cooling has huge impact on sound.

I would change the white caps for oils or teflon caps, they are in parallel. It will considderably improve sound quality.

powersection looks very decent though, i see elna cerafine's and black gates? Overall very decent.

If the amp is biased in class a, you would have at least 8-10 watts of pure class a power; with high efficiency speakers say above 90db, you could have a nice rig.

How can we go about making this thing available to the HeadFi crowd without jumping through a ton of hoops?

edit : too everyone that is concerned about the noise of the fan, if it is loud, I'm sure it could be replaced with a top of then line unit relatively easy.

Attractive looking amp. How does it sound??

palchiu, got impressions of the sound?

Is there something hiding under that fan? Which direction is the air moving. Into the picture or out?
post #41 of 77
look like there's not much of chance of getting this product oversea,
according to this thread by the creator of this amp on :
http://www.erji.net/read.php?tid=126...toread=&page=1

it seem like it's a one man company. to order people have to line up in
the queue, and even their order are accepted, the waiting period is 2 months.
i just pm the designer, asking if he can ship oversea to australia

SXT2 is in Class-A, the heatsink is become warm(not hot) last night.
The caps are Silmic and LPO.

Sorry, it's brand new one. I will write a short review later, but English is a pain to me.

Under the fan did not hide anything. You may see the PCB.

Oversea order isn't the problem, but you need patience to waiting for.
The designer甩袖湯 will finish every SXT-2 by himself.

I don't need to be teased anymore with things I cannot get without jumping through hoops. My ex-girlfriends have put me through enough of that for 5 lifetimes.
