Burson Timekeeper power amp

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Looks really promising, 80W into speakers (single) and 240W (Bridge mode)

 

Srajan introduced it

Official product page:

Also, i've heard there was a prototype unit at last year RMAF's. Anyone had the chance to try it?

I really like the size of that transformer. Just imagine what kind of juicy audio power is going to burst out of there....biggrin.gif

I like fans and no ventilation.

Can someone explain what this is for? Does it have anything to do with headphones?

Although this is not a headphone amplifier, it does appear to have air slots on the sides, where the fins are.  Wondering if the fan blows air into the case from the back and out over the fins, or the vice versa.

As far as I can see there is no ventilation, just a fan, to me it's kind of a weird thermal management decision... Good ventilation vs a noisy fan...

According to their page, the fan is idle 90% of the time. It will depend on the weather of your country. cool.gif

Probably not with a 1ohm speaker like an Apogee Scintilla. wink.gif

The 1 Ohm version its incredibly hard to drive. It may get hot tongue.gif

 

Unless you have the version that lets you change between 4 and 1 ohm.

The world needs more decent class AB amps. 

 

I wonder if it would blow up on my Quads?
