For sale is a tiny little Gilmore amp and ultra burly dedicated power supply.

From the front it is a small brushed aluminum box only 4.5" wide and 1" high on tiny stainless steel legs.

From the back, (upper L to R) inputs, power switch, power jack, bottom row, (lower L to R) fan switch, fan power.

FAN?!?!?!

Yeah, she does run hot! No hotter than your standard Gilmore but because of the tiny case size, all the heat stays in. The fan is almost completely silent, is powered by a seperate 6V wall wart (isolated from the amp's power supply = no noise), and switched so you can elect to leave it off.

Obligatory Gut Shot

This is built on one of the Subsonic boards (do a search) with an additional capacitor bank providing some more filtering capacity right at the amp (where it's needed). All wiring is teflon covered silver.
How does it compare to the Headamp line? I would say, based on Justin's descriptions, right in line with the Lite + Power supply. Probably a little better as I can afford to run the output stage at the original design bias level without fear of roasting the transistors - Thanks Fan!

The entire rig

The big box in the background is the power supply. A sturdy 35W dual supplying a tightly regulated +/- 16.4V of DC. Connection to the amp is via a 4-pin connector with threaded collar.

Instructions For Use:
Stash the power supply under your desk. Stomp on the power switch to turn on the power supply. Turn on the amp, turn on the fan, and all the phone calls, pages, intercubicle chit-chat melt away.

This has been my main rig for the last 12 months+ and the finest sounding amp I've ever built. I'm selling because I rarely have time to listen anymore.

Price is $333, shipped directly to you via speedy delivery.
