Nevermind, the battery on my DMM was practically dead. I changed it and measured 31.5 and 31.3.

Well, after soldering the wires on the rectifier board for the power to the amp boards, I find out I am out of decent hookup wire, so now I don't have any for signal and speakerposts.

I will return shortly

I finished the amp yesterday, and everything is awesome, except for a humming iin the left speaker, also if I turn the pot all the way up, there's a lot of hissing noise, Maybe it'll be more quiet with the B1 instead of just an Alps...

No pictures yet, I have to open up the chassis again, first. Also I need another pair of longer RCA plugs, because the ones I have (CMC from hificol) really doesn't fit. The chassis plate i stoo thick. Otherwise, this thing is awesome, especially for the price. Works wonders with my PSB Image B6. Clean, clear sound, articulate, deep punchy bass, smooth detailed mids and highs thats crispy without getting harsh.

Thanks to Peter Daniels for sharing and dealing

Actually, both channels are humming, but it's barely audible, and not with stuff playing.

Is there a way to increase output impedence for use with single driver speakers?

I'm using some Horn Shoppe Horns. I find the amp does well with them, but maybe could exert a little more control.

I really have no idea..

I also tried to plug in my bluray via the box with the alps, and the hum and buzz became unbearable....

I was asking a question for myself, not for the buzzing.

The buzz is not RF? Ground loop? My amplifier makes a little noise despite every suggest given on this board and by Peter. I gave up on figuring it out.

Ah, sorry. Maybe. The tronsformer is huge and its a tight fit in the case.

You follow instructions and avoided connecting to the top and bottom of the bolt through transformer correct?

Really low quality transformers might make extra noise. If you have the amplifier open and on you could possible hear it humming, if it is the transformer. (some are so bad you can hear it in the room, but I've never experienced one that bad myself)
