Gonna get myself an BDP-105 for my SACD collection first. The old SONY is not gonna cut it.

Also a master7 for my HDVD800.

 

Guess money saving round 2 starts now :P

I just got a new HD800 recently, and have been searching for the ultimate amp. Sounds like this may be The One. smily_headphones1.gif
Gonna do a bit more research on this but it looks like this will be where my amp money will go wink.gif
The challenge is finding table space for it

Hey Justin, any updates re the current batch of GS-X mk2's? :)

post #2302 of 2743

PM sent to Justin

Looks like he's been working on the BHSEs over the last month or so. I'm sure our panels and parts are coming in too.

post #2304 of 2743

i've been working on both. the GS-X panels are being laser engraved at this moment.

 

it's always funny that the busier i am, the MORE i get the "are you still in business?" emails

Hi Justin,

 

the GS-X panels you mentioned above are still for the "2013 batch" ... right ?

Sweet! It sounds like things are going well. Thanks Justin.

Just to keep peeps informed, since it feels like we're all a family now waiting together - If the GS-X is assembled in a similar process to the BHSE, all that's remaining now is (from the BHSE thread for those who don't follow it):

laser engrave the front panels

mount the components onto the front panels (jacks which are already wired, front panel PCBs already assembled)

attach front, top, bottom panel to assembled amplifiers

Can I order a big bunch of patience somewhere :o ? Make that two ! :wink:

the raw enclosures for the 2014 batch should be here anyday. the connectors and PSU cables have already been wired. that leaves assembling more circuit boards (always an easy part) and the front panels. For the front panels i am waiting on evaluation of 2 new types of aluminum before i know what direction i can go on that. should be about 2-3 weeks till i know. then up to 8 weeks to get the aluminum, 8 weeks for machining, 6 weeks for finishing/laser engraving = 24-25 weeks.
