MH, I've never seen an explanation of the differences and/or benefits of the new modules for existing GS-X owners. Can you elaborate?

Sorry, I'm at work and I can't dig them up...but they are in this thread (or the GS-1 thread).

The info is somewhere in the GS-1 thread.  Surprised Justin just kinda snuck it in there and never made any formal announcements!

 

The GS-X is so close I can taste it, figuratively speaking heh.

a summary of the improvements with the GS-X mk2:

 

- higher power supply voltages = more power

- new Gilmore Dynalo+ module design, one of the feature is increased output current = more power

- larger power supply transformers

- new circuit board layouts

- added a 2nd RCA input

- added a pre-amp output on/off switch 

- improved 3-way gain switching

- option of Alpha 21mm potentiometer or the DACT stepped attenuator

- added a 4-pin XLR balanced output, changed 2x 3-pin XLR and 1/4" stereo outputs to combo jacks

- improved build quality (thicker, polished front panels, laser engraving, powdercoated body)

they are nice and the best quality i've ever had from that kind of enclosure vendor.  no scratches or any other flaws.  color is consistent between runs.  in the end, i had to go another direction because the thin panels just werent enough.  and that brings me to all of today's headaches of getting everything custom machined & finished :)

As a very short term GS-X v1 owner I recall first time opening the box how much smaller and lighter the GS-X was than I had expected.  Was not disappointed however!!

When you say they were too thin, was it physical or electrical? The amp section does not appear to be all that heavy. I agree it is a beautiful case, despite being silver wink.gif

Thanks for the insight on the mk2 Justin and all.

I would like to hear if someone has been able to compare the v200 to the GS-X as that's what I'm replacing with the mk2?

The metal wasn't thin but it wasn't thick enough for fancy stuff either.  That and it may not look that way but those cases are really big... and most were black :p

post #540 of 3434
