Thank you Russell,

You have owned just about all my amps in the last 15 years, and I am very grateful for your interest and patronage, as I have feel for others here, such as PSP, Jens, AndyR, and many other discriminating people.

I have approached the design issue as a detective over more than 20 years now. I tried to play down the technology; it is secondary, the music is the primal requirement. And because we are people enjoying an art form, we cannot be ignored in the sound chain and there needs to be more work into what works and what does not. I am now convinced that global feedback is pivotal; but I remember something said many decades ago, 'Design an amplifier which is as linear as you can make it, then use a little feedback'. This is my maxim these days!

Cheers,

Hugh

Thanks Hugh
I couldn't have said it better.

Another thing to note is that the Maya is very very quiet. With only the amplifier on and connected to the speakers I can just barely hear some transformer noise if I have my ear right up against the speaker woofer. The Maya is far more quiet than any other of the Aspen amps.

Listening to the Maya right now and its very musical.
With A tube Pre it sounds pretty fantastic actually.
Simple design has great merits .
Stevie Wonder is in my Room

Hi Garry,

Thanks for your post..... on 20th April I'm presenting the Maya to the Melbourne Audio Club at the Willis Room, Whitehorse Council Auditorium. I have been playing the Maya around Melbourne in recent weeks and everyone is entranced; it is very resolving and the ambient information of the performance is better with this amp that I have ever heard, and indeed all my previous designs. I attach my flyer for the MAC, explaining my upcoming event.

Cheers,

Hugh

Is this still under development? I wonder why it is not listed on the website.

Congratulations Hugh, your Maya presentation at the Melbourne Audio Club last night went superbly. Rarely have I enjoyed a meeting as much as this one.

Wow, thanks Russell!

I spent a lot of time on the music selection, and I was there at 6:15pm warming the amp and speakers. Nick run the Oppo very well and all my comments between pieces highlighted the aspects of the amp issues I think are important.

I do run out of words. They are there but the retrieval is slow; my HDD spins a lot less these days. But the ideas are OK, and a number of people during the break said that the comments were interesting and surprising.

I can never restrain myself from taking pot shots at the common lore of audio and the 'guru' who give us 'helpful' tips on design. I did not much dwell on harmonic distortion but I did take aim at the consumer, who thinks if the case is neat and the front panel is 15mm Al with CNC engraving and many lights and meters is a good amp. The visual presentation does not make a good amp, but the reverse does not attract buyers. The result is far too much money on the looks, particularly the front panel.

I thought Laurie's VSonics were just exceptional, very good range, dynamics, and resolution.

Thanks for coming along to the meet, Russell! To see you there and many other Aspen customers was very encouraging!

Cheers,

Hugh

Hi Sene,

Thank you for your post - I have a 200W in the market, and now you ask me for a 300W??? WOW!!

How many would you sell, do you reckon? Lot of heavy work to make a very big amp......

Cheers,

Hugh
