And am soooo jumpin up and down now..as its first 'in process' pic of my new amp...and i didnt want to keep it from u guys...as soon i have more pics and when i get the amp itself i will start a dedicated thread concerning this amp...for anyone interested ofcourse biggrin.gif



and u cant imagine it...its all handwork by one person!!!

And for ur info also...the psu and transformer will be something like this..same case..only completely black with glossy black front to match my amp case.

..although the amp case will have a real stainless cover..just like its backside! Look at the thickness of that stainless steel on the back! wink.gif
Front side with the round holes will have dual xlr 3pin and one single ended headphone output tongue.gif
As i said..its not MY PSU..but similar and it will have same case... biggrin.gif



Geez look at how packed it is internally. Looks very heavy

Am getting nightmares already about the postage costs for transport from canada to the netherlands, as it indeed doesnt look it only weighs 20lbs/9kg... If i am not mistaken the psu case itself would count for at least 20lbs..but i have to hear the concrete weight when its ready...this amp is going to be really expensive with all the xtra costs as i am not even calculating the +35% taxes and customcosts!!! redface.gif poor me biggrin.gif

@hifimanrookie, I reckon our national electricity provider would pay you keep that amplifier turned off at the wall.. After all we are sitting at a comfortable national utilisation level of 95%.

U reckon? biggrin.gif Shal i tell u a secret? I asked the builder to keep the on-off switch out! As i read his builts based on opamps sound on its best being always on... And thats what we all want right? Best sound possible for our budget...whether emotiva, lyr, little dot, darkvoice or blue circle audio or any other brand we use with our phones....we all want the same..

No, but I think one of the options is a built in vibrator... I meant "massager"  :D

From the looks of it, you can ride it like a bull and it has a heated saddle. I supose it can easily drive an HE-6. :eek:

Are you implying that his amp is battery operated? :eek:

Lolz..u guys are crazy biggrin.gif

But as i said before... The solely reason of existence of this amp is to drive a he6 the best way possible..in any way!..not just in the powerdepartment...
Its been designed and is being built solely for that... Critical Parts of it is taken directly 1on1 from their TOTL speaker amp, the NSL... The Main amplifier board is actually a NSL board!
Funny is that my amp is upgraded twice already since he started the built (didnt need to pay anything extra!). AS the power he wanted couldnt be reached by the original transformer and powersupply (it maxed out on 4,25w into 8ohm, he told me) so he came up with the monster of the pics i just posted..

the builder,gilbert, even stated to me in a mail that my particular amp is his personal petproject...no one of the production department touches it! So i am guessing he uses my amp to make it the best he can (i told him i am going to visit audio meetings with it through europe with my code-x and i gave him carte-blanche to do whatever he thinks is best) so maybe that helped to make him more inspirational? wink.gif ) and experiment with new things..i dont mind..as i dont need to pay any extra when he comes across another upgrade to put in my amp of which he thinks makes the amp better.. wink.gif

No not battery operated... But he told me that its no problem to modify it to do so..i just have to sent the powersupply back...he did it many times now..i just need to pay and its done..but for now i dont see the profit from it...but u never know..as he even is working on possibilities to drive an amp on solar power and car batteries...he already made couple of amps being powered by some kind of cells instead of the wallsocket...
That guy is really a genius and completely nuts..he doesnt believe in standard....just my type of guy i could call my friend wink.gif
