Sounds like the board is a drop in replacement for the original GK-1 and the only fiddling will be with sourcing a different volume control.

Please keep me posted on availability.

PS - My AKSA is still going strong. I have had many hours of enjoyment from your amp.
Volume control is the same, just connects in a different place in the circuit.

Mark,

Steve is on the money - same volume control, simply moved to the front of the preamp section rather than midships..... no other change there.

Knowing the market would be restricted, I did in fact design it as a drop in replacement. I see this as 're-camming the small block'.

Thank you for your confidence!!

Cheers,

Hugh

Hugh, don't forget to put me in the queue for a GK-2 board, please. (Stuffed, of course - weeell, not stuffed ... but "stuffed"! )

Regards,

Andy

Aha, that Oz idiom Andy!!

Here downunder 'stuffed' means completely destroyed..... we have to be careful, and it also means very tired, exhausted, but I get your drift!

Kafe Saturday?

Ciao,

Hugh

Steve,

If I remember properly, yours was a somewhat modified GK1. Mine has had the C4, C7 and platinum input mods and sounds really great but if yours was also similarly modified and the GK2 sounds even better, I guess I'll need to add myself to Hugh's list as well.

If so, I guess my plans to leave my kit as is for a bit are stuffed!!

The new one is far better than any implimentation of the old one.

Hi Hugh, surely this is going to be called the Phoenix and not the Hawk :-)

Put me down for one of these. I do need to put something inside the world's most beautifully made paper weight.

Sums?

I was hoping you were doing GK-2 PCBs

Cheers,

Jens

Nah, Jens, I'm presently doing:

#1 commercialising the NAKSA 100,
#2 building and despatching NAKSAs,
#3 finalising the FetZilla group buy,
#4 polishing a HPA with a friend locally,
#5 finishing the engine rebuild, and
#6 preparing a tax statement.

Semi-retirement has never been so busy.......

Cheers,

Hugh
