I think sometimes posters forget some of these "Manufacturer" areas (this one especially) are not the same as the regular areas.

might be ok and fair to state the fact that its expencive
but a long debate about how much it costs, thats just silly and pointless

hoped to read about something interesting, and not boring posts about price tag

as if we are all stupid and know nothing about prices

It looks fine, even with SMD parts! What happened?

I guess, I "only" have to say good things about NAKSA modules. other way all will jump on me. I ONLY said that these modules are way too expensive for just "assembled and tested" amp kits.(We can all assemble and test them).
If you're taking your time to read the story of Hugh Dean at his website you don't say these things anymore.Than you'll understand why is offering these modules.

Hi All, I think I found a perfect chassis for your next AKSA:

Aluminum heat sink before the amplifier chassis A09 - iBuyLa_Tmall_Taobao Angent - Online Shopping at iBuyLa.com in Singapore

I'm dying to try an AKSA one of these days.

I'm glad that Hugh finally made such a fine looking pcb and also used SMD parts. This is sign being modern although you must know the drawbacks of SMD and also the advantages.

Hugh is quite famous around here and he has the right to set any price of his products. It costs quite much money to manufacture pcb's in a small scale so if all development costs are summarized I wonder how much is left.

I wish you good luck and I think it was brave of you to do something like this.

Hugh,

I heard you had a new amplifier out - I must say it looks very nice !

The finished box looks great too - just needs an Aspen logo on the front

Rgds,

G

Default Belated Congratulations

Hi Hugh

The new "80" is indeed a fine looking beast ... to my eyes its the best looking Aspen design yet, and that's saying something. I look forward to future developments from the same part of your mental racing stables - a 110 watt per channel thrasher of NAKSA 100's and Lifeforce 100's:, perhaps?

Regards,

PJ (probbo)

I am not interested selling into the low end of the market; I regard amps as musical instruments rather than cheap commodities. I have too many years spent in careful R&D to waste throwing pearls before swine.

If you return to my forum with a combative, negative and sneering way again I will delete ALL your posts. I am the moderator here, and I have given you fair warning
I don't think this Forum exists for the primary purpose of supplying commercial
vendors like Aksa a platform to push their Ideology and Products to all exclusion
of other views.

It is shameful when the Major spokesperson for the product engages in threats
when presented with contrary opinions. Unfortunately others fall in line with
your personal tactic of, silence or insult different view points.

I have no personal opinion about the Amplifiers but I am unavoidable forming
one not based on Merit. I hope you gain control of Aksa's public and corporate
sales pitch ? Some of your well meaning support is a definite Negative bordering
on Cult status.

How about discussing Engineering and Electronics for the benefit of all of us ?

Maybe this venue is not the appropriate one for selling your more recent Products ?

Good luck with your endeavor.
