What its build quality like ?
post #32 of 42
Very good, very happy with it. No issue noted.

I quite like the brush silver front with mine.

Overall very good but as stereophile noted, not audio jewelry.

Volume knob looks very nice and the feel is very, very smooth. On/Off switch feels positive and not too fragile. Feet are very soft rubber so I assume it's properly damped. Headphone jacks feel very tight. Front faceplace feels very good but not 'expensive'.

There, first part of my review done

Do tell us what you think of it.
Never liked the cheapish-looking (and vulnerable) on/off toggle, though; would have preferred a rocker switch or button. : )

I, too, was concerned with that cheapish-looking toggle switch and discussed the matter with Rudi before ordering my amps. (I was particularly concerned with whether the packaging was protective enough.) But I can report that it feels much more rugged than it looks. It hasn't been a problem.

Definitely there is no way to satisfy all customers, we have previously a black rocker in the first edition of the RP33, IMO an ugly switch. We changed it to a more stylish and nice looking one, as per many requests, and now customers complaint anyway about the new one...

BTW the toggle switch we use is no different to any other used by any other manufacturer, not sure what the beef is, IIRC Ray Meier, Headroom and many others as well use that same switch, so they last for long time, they are well made, silver contacts, rated to 250 volts, 2A, and proved to work, and they do not look as bad...

Why does it need a switch ? I use wall socket switch to turn my rig off.

But to redeem myself... here it is, first hand impressions on HD-800+RPX-33 Enjoy!

Totall agree! My only concern was with shipping, but when I received
my Rudistor NX-02 the packaging was very well thought out and actually
took account of this design feature.
