Another plug 'n play Maya is born in Melbourne this week, and to be despatched to Singapore tomorrow.

I auditioned it for 36 hours and am well pleased. A beautiful amplifier!

It will have a marvellous life in SE Asia, the jewel of Singapore. I'm quite proud I have it in SE Asia; and of course, there is one with Suresh in southern India. YAY!!

I have just finished a brochure on the Maya 200 which I can attach here for perusal.

Hi Darren - long time no hear!

I am in the final stages of a change to my system which will see me having no further need of my AKSA GK-2R ... so I am interested to know whether you are still in the market for one.

Currently, my signal chain is as follows:
* sources (3 digital sources plus phono) --> GK-2R.
* GK-2R ... 4x analogue outputs --> my miniDSP 10x10HD.
* 8 analogue outs from the miniDSP --> 8 amp channels (sub / bass panel / mid panel / ribbon for L & R).

Which means that my 3x digital sources have gone through a D2A conversion (so as to be fed into the GK-2R) plus an A2D step (in the miniDSP unit).

The change will be as follows:
* use a high quality A2D unit to digitise my phono stage.
* use a digital input switcher to select 1 digital source from 4.
* feed the selected digital source into the digital input of my miniDSP.
* the 8 analogue outs from the miniDSP will go into an 8-channel, digitally-controlled, analogue volume control ('Relaixed').
* sub & bass channel outputs then go straight into their amps; mid & ribbon outputs go into 2 of Hugh's TLP buffers and then on to their amps ... to give the 'tube flavour' to these channels that the GK-2R does, now.

This arrangement:
* saves a D2A+A2D conversion for my 3 digital sources,
* provides a higher quality A2D conversion for my phono stage than that provided by the miniDSP unit, and
* makes the GK-2 redundant.

I won't have finished with this change until probably the end of Feb but please let me know if you're still interested in a GK-2R. Mine has:
* digitally-controlled, sealed relays for push button input selection - which won't degrade with use like a standard rotary selection switch does,
* fairly new, cryo-ed Tesla PCC88 valves - with a spare set of cryo-ed Telefunken PCC88s.
* a TKD stepped attenuator, as used by John Curl in his cost-no-object "BlowTorch" preamp (Hugh can attest as to the improvement this made!), and
* Clarity Cap / MultiCap output / interstage coupling capacitors.
