because the power supply voltages have increased more than 20% in the new GS-X.  the older GS-X would not support these higher voltages

GS-2 or GS-X2 or  anything else..... please.  eek.gif

 

Hang on - which one of you is building this amp ? If Justin builds it, I think he gets to name the thing ..... assuming Kevin has no objections to that naming standard.  :)

Some user named DigitaFreak said he had it first.  I never saw him until he pop up out of nowhere and politely asked that I change it

back on track - the GS-1 is a fine amp. my variant of it, the v2se, has been a wonderful device over the years.

How long before the amp modules for GS-1 are ready for order?

the longest lead time parts (the transistors) are scheduled to come in end of September, and then assembly of the PCBs will take a couple weeks.  I will need to start taking orders in advance of this because I have no idea how many existing GS-1/GS-X owners will want new modules, I only know how many I need to build for upcoming new GS-X amps.
