Here's a post for anyone interested in the power consumption of the Dynahi.
Purchased a Kill-a-watt meter from Amazon recently, and I've been having some fun measuring a bunch of stuff at home. Among the measured things, my Dynahi, of course.
Keep in mind, I built my Dynahi using two Condor power supplies, not Gilmore's designed power supply (in case that might make any difference in consumption.)
Playing Prodigy's "Fat of the Land," and driving two headphones simultaneously: HD600 and HD650. Volume at ~10:30 am, which is the one I commonly use with these headphones. Here's the values I measure:
Input AC: V = 119.5 V, F = 59.9 Hz
Measured Power Consumption of my Dynahi:
84 Watt / 111 VA
PF = 0.75
Right after powerup the amp was drawing only 0.84 amps, and pf was 0.82. But after 25 minutes the measured values were already as shown above, and they remain the same and stable after 40 min.
