Just placed an order for new SAKSA 85, coming off a Hypex UCD180.

Looking forward to the build, this will be my first AKSA amp.

Nick, Welcome to the Aspen Family. The Saksa is a good introduction to what goes on here. Once here, you might never leave. Hugh is always coming up with new and better amps.

Groan, I fells asleep last night with a very odd drive system for a mosfet output stage...... it never leaves me alone.

Welcome to Aspen, Nick, it will be despatched on Monday!

Ciao,

Hugh

Up and running for a few days now and very pleased with what I'm hearing. Definitely a few levels above the UCD180 it replaced. Sounds much more powerful when the watts are almost identical. Very rich mids and bass produce a very full dynamic sound even at lower volumes.
The resolution is similar but SAKSA takes it further, instruments are more delineated and busy passages easier to interpret. Its also easy to listen to with no fatigue. I took a gamble being new to Aspen and glad I did.

Thanks Nick,

A nice implementation, and a thoughtful, insightful view of the sound quality. I suspect the resolution at low output is the result of a very high S/N ratio; VERY quiet indeed.

Thanks for taking the time to let forums members the latest Aspen amp, I'm very proud of this entry level Aspen, it's a corker......

Cheers,

Hugh

Boy you are correct, I am so impressed with this amplifier Ive fallen in love with my speakers and system all over again. Hugh said that a good amp is the foundation and I now believe that's true.

I honestly don't know how Hugh produces such big rich sound out of such a small board. You would think the amp would have capacitors the size of coke cans. The SAKSA really is a bargain!! If I ever upgrade I won't be looking anywhere else.

Thanks Hugh

WOW, this is what it's all about - the music.

The music is what it's all about and what I try so hard to bring back........

Thanks Nick, these subjective comments keep me working hard to do better and better amps. I really do think the SAKSA AND the Maya are my best amps......

Hugh

Hi Hugh, I am enjoying my Saksa, have a fuse question. My favorite affordable audiophile fuse only goes up to 8A, would that be okay to replace 10A??
