Lost link to a Dynalo amp?

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Somewhere around here I saw a link to a Dynalo amp that was around $250. There wasn't much information about it around the forums but on the webpage it said Gilmore had listened to it and liked it. Does anyone have the link to this?

Here

Note: Basic dynalo. Not sure about the Kevin Gilmore checked it out bit. . . . . I mean why would he bother?

Thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for. I was talking about the part that said

Yeah I know it's there but I'm not exactly sure that really happened or not. . . if you know what I mean.

<_< that sets off a red flag/warning bell for me.

someone want to send Dr. Gilmore an email or pm?

Well I just CBF and I'm pretty sure the busy man doesn't have time to reply .

But let's have a good assessment of the situation. It's $280. I don't care if Mr Gilmore has heard it or not. It's a dynalo designed at being the cheapest dynalo without sacrificing too much on what exactly makes this amp design great. "essence of DynaLo without the huge price tag" as in the sales blurb to me means, "Hey this will sound awesome for the price but don't expect it to sound like a $1000+ amp!" So yeah, it's largely irrelevant. If it were $500 or $600, then I'd be changing my point of view. I'd be wanting some reviews before taking the plung over the highly praised Headamp Gilmore Lite.

[As for the original version, they probably tweaked it before release, like every other company]

I definitely own the final production version, and i like it a lot.

Its part of one of my office systems now.

Its very hard to compete with the labor costs associated with
building something like that outside the US.

Wow cheers Kevin!

Whoops, mixed things up,

Well Kevin has given it the approval, who else has had a try at the amp?

I'm very interested to hear about it's sound sig - cold? neutral? warm? are the highs exaggerated or rolled off etc and how well it pairs with Grado/Allesandro.

No one yet. I think someone from another forum ordered one so we'll wait and see.

wow, so if i understand correct, this is a scaled down G-lite for under $300?
post #14 of 40
Sorta. The Gilmore Lite is a dynalo which was designed by Kevin Gilmore. This is also a dynalo. To suggest it is a scaled down GLite is a bit misleading.

Looks like it has internal PSU, Gilmore Lite uses extenal PSU.
