Roll Call: Who's building, built, or thinking of building a beta22? - Page 71

post #1051 of 3168
Ya I can't wait for mine to be done. My uncle has decided all the parts and has begun, so very excited! Hopefully near my birthday Ill have it. Now I wonder if the y1 Gamma is good enough or a buffalo is going to be noticably different.

... and that puts you one step ahead of me
Maybe someday when all the other project get done, and nothing else pops up in the mean time.

If I decide on getting another ss amp I will be building one of these, or wussing out and paying someone else to do it for me. I've heard too many good things to NOT go with a beta22 if I stray from the tubes.

For the sake of the thread, I'm planning on building a b22, after I get a y1. Seeing this thread bumped every day makes my wallet quiver in terror. I need a new multimeter, hopefully my 2 olds ones will get sold in this garage sale i'm about to have to pay for a new Fluke 179 to replace my 77 and 12b.

It has been said many times before but...
I have spent the same amount on caseing as almost all the components plus tooling combined~

Looking back on it I should have just put it in a cookie tin hehe

hi guys, i'm deciding weither to build this or not, If i run a balanced setup, how much gain would i get from having 2 seperate power supplies? or even 4!

i noticed amb recommend 1 supply for each board??

Speaker amp or HP amp?
post #1059 of 3168
most likely headphone amp,

how well would they drive a pair of jbl monitors, 8ohms at 89dB sensitivity.

I'm planning on building one, but it seems my laundry list of wanted features will have to be pruned down a bit for practicality's sake. On a more positive note, I think I've figured out how to mount the six beta22 boards I have planned in a nice and efficient manner with bigger heatsinks
HERE, SIR.

sorry for my noobness, but is it possible to build a beta22 into a hybrid amp with balanced and unbalanced input/outputs?

Yes you can. Info about this is available on the forum and on amb.org
post #1063 of 3168
Yes. See Amb's website. Also, here.

awesome thanks. time to save some money and find someone to build it for me.

how much do you guys think it will cost to build btw? i wish i had the electronic/soldering skills to build it myself.
post #1065 of 3168
There's a huge range. A basic two channel with minimal case work can be built for about $400. Then there's the other extreme of 4 or even 6 channels with fancy wiring/casework/etc. which can easily eclipse $2500.
