Bring on the statement rig. Man am I excited about this combo. I have been hanging out for it since December 2010 and yet I am still excited. Look out HE6. You are only 5 months away from singing your best ever tunes!

Ps - Mooaarrrr power! :-)

What is the price indication of the upcoming Statement Amp? Nearest $500 will do - and delivery time is what (nearest 6 months will do).

A little lower, and quite a bit sooner. Think end of the year.

i just remember you saying you were going to be announcing sometime this fall. and i was hoping that it would be close to 1000 dollars, but i didnt want to get greedy on that one :P

I have decided to wait for the statement amps since they will be out in the next year or so. 

 

Under 1.5k is bloody awesome. 

post #203 of 3351

This year. Less than $1500. OK I´ll bite - all in. :)

 

Thanks Jason. Final question: Any valves / tubes involved in the statement amp? Now - that is a question I am really curious of.

NFI if this is still the game plan because it's an older post but....

Thanks for the input. It's definitely helped us solidify what we're going to be doing for the balanced side of things. What we've decided:

 

1. We're going to change our plan for one single "statement" hybrid balanced amp. It's now going to be two amps: an all solid-state, simple balanced amp aiming for maximum balanced performance for the price, and a hybrid statement amp.

 

2. We'll have both 4-pin, 3-pin, and single-ended phono outs on both amps.

 

3. Both amps will have single-ended output as well, and it will be the "high quality," not the "utility" variety. This isn't as trivial as it sounds, since our balanced topology is not simply another amp stage running an inverted signal. So, single-ended is an entirely separate output stage (using the same differential voltage gain stage, though.)

 

And now, the news you've really been waiting for: the winner!

 

Please congratulate Duetta, of Post#138 fame. You're the winner of the Valhalla! I'll PM you to get the shipping address, and we'll send that out immediately.

 

For everyone else, thank you sincerely for all the input. You'll see the first evidence of it in a few short months.

 

All the best,

Jason

Old info. It's really been an evolving project. 

post #207 of 3351

1 or 2 statement amps?

post #208 of 3351

NFI 1 or 2, but that is the reason I popped the question to Jason.

NFI?

No @$#% idea.

Price was meant to be close to $1k and have the option of tube or solid state stage.
