Two words: resale value.

Hi Arturo/Golfnutz,

Thanks very much for the input, guess I'll keep the RK50 option to make the BHSE a better amp for 009s.

Cheers

You also could change your system at some point in the future, one that would involve using the volume controller.

These don't change hands often.

Doing my own inspection of the amplifier boards. Next the volume controls are soldered according to the orders so far, and then assembled into the enclosure

Justin, were the blue circuit boards what gave the amplifier it's name or did you have them made blue to suit the name Blue Hawaii?

I decided to make them blue for this batch. The amp circuit was named by kevin gilmore

IIRC a Blue Hawaii is the name of the cocktail KG was drinking when he came up with the circuit design.

updated on the build -- things are coming along quickly now. i said i would take a comprehensive photo of where everything is, and i will, just dont really have the time right now to gather those pieces and put them together for 1 shot.  Last week the circuit boards were attached to the heatsinks that are the sides of the amp box, and this week & next week the circuit boards are being assembled into the power supply box and the back panel put in place. This completes the power supply except for attaching the front panels, which are not yet back from polishing/anodizing.  The amplifier is not far behind -- the wires on the heatsinks/back panel get soldered into the main board pictured above, then the rest of the enclosure parts are screwed on - that part should be done in the next few weeks. Same thing w/ the front panel for the amp.

Picture of the amp boards... thank you VM Justin. Same picture for the PSU? And what about the Shuguang Treasure option you mentioned a few weeks ago? Best regards.

Hi Justin,

I have an order with you for a BHSE and SR009 and just found this thread here where you are posting BHSE build status. This is great !!! 

 

Appreciate you are keeping us up-to-date on build status; I'll be checking this thread on a regular basis now.   smily_headphones1.gif

Who cares? People want their amps, not more delay, so I think if people want that they can buy a set themselves. smile.gif
