Simply Stunning!

Ti that's at least as beautiful as any Krell I've ever seen. Just a stunner!

That amp looks so incredibly masculine... it's like it's powered by pure testosterone. So bulky, so chunky and industrial. But it's also so professional-looking even I like it, and I've never been a fan of the overbuilt-industrial look.

That thing is beautiful, and it looks like a Professionals work, I would be honored to have one of those in a equipment rack.

Sorry if it is in the headwise thread but from curiosity, what is the cost of each of these

Amp only, more or less barebones build without super high quality componenets
Amp only, the way you built it (no case)
Finished product (including any milling fees for panels).

This is the first ever completed build of this amp. It will be a long time before average build costs are known.

Even just an estimate based on if you used all boutique caps or resistors, the price inflation of those vs non boutique etc.

You and Ferrari always have works of art.

I haven't built one, and there isn't even an official/final BOM yet. But I believe AMB was allowing for at least $1200 for parts - and none of that is boutique.

I recently built this Beta22 + Opus DAC for another HeadFier. It's got the an Opus module, plus Metronome and Ballsie output. There's a Joshua Tree Attenuator as well. This took way too long to assemble and too much time on a drill press. The case is from HiFi2000, with custom milled 10mm front panels.

Nice work Mazuki, looks really good. May I ask what power connectors you used?
post #3388 of 9591
They're Neutrik DIN connectors. I was originally planning to use the PowerOn series, but the Opus DAC needed too many separate power connections.

^I love the clean black look of that Beta22 Mazuki
