Really looking forward to reading impressions on the new amp boards. I love how clean HeadAmp gear always looks.

Some stats on the new modules:
Max volts peak to peak into loads:
No load - 23Vpp
25 ohms - 20Vpp
10 ohms - 14Vpp
double this for balanced out. Note that these results are with the power supply voltage increased from +/-16.4V to +/-20V. Use of these modules in an older GS-1 or GS-X would have accordingly lower output voltages.
Distortion (1khz @ 1Vrms)
No load - 0.0011%
10 ohms - 0.004%
Freq response: -1dB @ 50KHz
I will re-measure the old modules to offer a comparison

The prototype heatsinks for the new modules are in, now I can finally see how much I can turn up the juice.
I may call it the "Dynalo+". It's inbetween Kevin Gilmore's Dynalo and Dynahi in terms of power output and design.post #327 of 5418/6/12 at 11:22ampost #328 of 5418/6/12 at 11:48am
changes to the design, final boards wont have thatpost #329 of 5418/6/12 at 3:17pmpost #330 of 5418/6/12 at 3:55pm
there isn't one. but an existing GS-1 can be upgraded with the new modules.
