RSA * Dark Star * SE and balanced, dual chassis amp designed to drive most any HP . .  

post #1 of 172
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if anything was going on with Ray's "inventions" but figured he was just busy putting out amps. So I ventured over to his site today and now he has a new amp! For the hard to drive HE-6 and any other phone, this appears to provide the horse power to move phones to their max potential. 

I can't believe some of these figures:

 

80 volts in SE but the amp is also fully balanced for 160 volts peak to peak. 9 amps of current and parts to match.

 

Here is a link to current information:

This is something I really want to hear. Now to get off this island.

I might not bother if it only does 160 Volts...biggrin.gif

Y'know, I think there's a limit as to how much power we really need here... I mean, this is basically like a speaker amp that didn't bother with the speaker taps right?

Many people drive the HE-6 with speaker amps. They suck up the current. I have driven horn speakers with a lot of power to stay in the lowest distortion area of the amp, as long as the amp was good to begin with. The proof will be in the listening.

Is it Dark Star or Black Star? I like Black Star better. One of my favorite Radiohead songs, too

Hey, good catch. I guess you can choose the name. :^)

 

 

Looking forward to images and to what it sounds like. I can only imagine how my HE-6 would sound powered with this.

I do love that Rays number one fanboy "happened to visit his site today". Just in the nick of time to catch one of the once-in-every-9-to-10-months-or-so updates.

 

What a world of coincidence we live in.

Imagine that!  What are the chances?!

Huh, RSA isn't a sponsor here??? But there is an ad in the sponsor section? Weird.
