Thank you! Mind you - this is still work in progress. I have just finished putting the parts for the electronic x-overs on MDF boards (for easy installation) - see photo.

These will go into the treble/mid enclosures, and once that work (including the wiring) is done, I will be able to enjoy all NAKSAs mounted on the rear. Right now the NAKSA 70s intended for the treble/mid drivers are not in operation, as these drivers are still being driven by off-enclosure NAKSA 100s through the passive filter.

A friend of mine just changed from passive filtering to active operation, using the same GroundSound x-overs that I will be using, and experienced a very good overall improvement, so I can hardly wait to get this done - I believe the GroundSound/NAKSA combination will be absolutely stunning

Cheers,

Jens

Wow, Jens....

What sort of power supplies do the crossovers use? It looks like four separate discrete regulators. This is kinda important - they look very nicely designed.

Hi Hugh,

The PSU is very nicely designed indeed. It uses a real transformer and good filter caps, and not some of the very noisy switchmode stuff. And yes, it has separate supplies.

Details for the PSU can be seen here: http://www.groundsound.com/pdfdoc/Gr...20PSUDCNII.pdf

Details for the filters themselves: http://www.groundsound.com/pdfdoc/Gr...0-%20DCN24.pdf

The GroundSound stuff is very neatly made and has been around for a while. The DCN24 filter that I am using is second generation, also using second generation software. The filters have USB connections and are easy to program with the accompanying software. You can even change settings while playing music!

I've got two audio friends who are already using these filters with very good results -and as I said, I expect the GroundSound/NAKSA combo to be awesome - not least due to the NAKSAs

Cheers,

Jens

I am posting here, simply in order to keep up with the advances in the project.

I like Hugh's 'take' on Audio and amplifiers.

Hmmm, Theo, would you be a friend of Peter Roberts, by any chance?

No Hugh,

Merely someone who has been in love with Music for all of my life, who appreciates the fact that hi-fi can open a means access to the greater Beauty of Music.

I've never heard one of your amps, but I like the manner in which you consider things 'hi-fi'.

GOD bless you.(And Peter Roberts )

You need to buy one, theophile.

I've been using Hugh's amps for ... maybe, 10 years (ever since I took my Naim 250 over for a shootout against his original AKSA 55 and it blew it away! ). Now on the 3rd generation of Hugh's amps (but not the NAKSAs).

Regards,

Andy

I'd prefer to hear one, before buying one.

Nah... Just go ahead and buy one! I've heard one and WOW!

Now I'm finishing my chassis for FetZilla but I would sure hope I owned a Naksa
