Bravo Audio - funny looking little tube amps

post #1 of 2605

Valve Class A Hybrid Tube Headphone Amplifier pre amp B on eBay (end time 07-Oct-09 17:24:57 BST)

Seen a lot of these turning up on ebay recently. Anyone have any thoughts on them or tried one? Is it dangerous to have the parts exposed like that?

I have one on the way, be interesting to hear it. Hopefully it will pass electrical safety testing at work!

There's more to it than meets the eye.
Shipping weight: 600 Kg.

Dude, it's still only $12 International Shipping. It looks cool!

They look cool but the exposed sides give me the willies.

I'm getting tempted. How hard can it be to add a surround of some sort that'll stop you putting your fingers where it's best not to?

I plan to get a guy in the workshop here at work to make me some sides from perspex.

Can't see those PCB solder/tracks lasting very long before lifting. Poor design.

Just a thought - tube amps can get pretty hot. Make sure you leave some vents.

These look interesting, look forward to a review.

Looks like there's another thread on these amps here.

Don't be afraid. It won't bite. It's only running on a 24 volt DC supply.

You want terminal case of the willies? Check out Don Garber's open-frame designs.

So this guy sells amps and tea.
Hmm why does this sound strange.
Cant wait for a mini review though, will probably buy one just for fun.

Got an email to say it had been shipped. Bit random for what must have been early Sunday in HK. Fingers crossed.

This amp has been out for a while, I remember reading about it a while ago. I do not believe many here have bought it.
