Rudistor realeased a new flagship amp - Page 3

post #31 of 170

They see my Beta...they hatin...

 

I saw a Ferrari the other day at the dealership, it was full of fail. The leather felt really stiff, the pedals were too close together, and the stereo was too loud.  Wish I could afford one.

anodizing   per chassis             $100  (ATA anodizing in skokie, IL  one of the biggest and best)

All chassis parts including 2 tops, 2 bottoms, 2 fronts, 2 backs, 4 heatsinks, 4 transistor angle brackets, material for 2 stax jacks and 1 knob

                                               $382

(all of the custom extrusions came from M&M metals in Texas which last time i checked was still part of the USA)

 

total                                        $1312  per chassis

 



Is this what you're referring to?

Kevin, is this the chassis of yours you said you had made for $1312 each?

If so, you know very well it looks absolutely nothing like the chassis on my amp.

 

 

Edit:  Looks like Steve beat me to it.

Pretty sure this chassis cost more than yours to do.

Hmm that does look pretty nice. (Not weighing into the cost debate.)

post #36 of 170

Just to conclude the argument( at least from my side)

 

1-For the friend who plan to drop by to HK show room, i must say I'll leave on friday, sorry.

2-About potentiometer, I agree with Gilmore, it's not attractive to see, but a 4 section potentiometer must be long and never nice.

Dact are very nice to see but do not give enough precision in volume adjustment so I never use it ,(is  hard to find the right volume level ) The RK114

( that cost much more then 9 $?? ) apart to be practically the only 4 section pot really available on regular production, have the great advantage to be 

modular, so form a bunch ( I buy stock of original Japan made straight from their German branch) i can select the better matching 

sections for left to right precision and phase to phase precision, we set our limit in 0.02dB. 

The motor ( easy to dismount ) is left in place in order to make possible a future upgrade to remote control

3-The power resistors are placed on the edge of the bottom plate, close so the side heatsinks so almost all of heat goes straight to the the side wings.

4-A top quality switching power supply, who have the  working frequency far away for audio spectrum without any measurable EMI, followed by a traditional RC filter based on capacitance multiplier, deliver the cleanest DC supply, and it's totally insulated by the main AC noise,  and even immune from most common ground problems,most of  the ultra expensive "power conditioners" work on this principle apart of battery backup/buffer option. Listen to believe. 

 

Regards to all of you guys

I know mine is pedestrian in comparison but it cost me 1/6 the price and still sounds amazing. No I didn't build it myself. Although I did do some work on it. :)010aa4c5_IMG-20110303-00018.jpg

It does look really purdy.

I've always preferred silver as dust just shows up so much more on black.

I guess black amps do look better in the shade. (Shameless 80's music reference here...any Gino Vanelli fans?). tongue.gif

I'm not weighing in on the arguments either, but great job on the casing baka.  It looks really good.

Agreed. Cory really did some fine work pimping it up.

Thanks. Fishski13 did the work. We collaborated on the design. I did a (very) little internal post-op work on it.

who wants to discuss your 'pedestrian' amp Ross?  i want to see the pics of the Bellatone's gutz.  biggrin.gif
