60 bucks for parts huh? Let me know where you buy yours, I'll buy mine there too. Then I'll have you put it together for me because you obviously work for free.
LMAO!

Hey Peter!

Much deserved CONGRATS! on a great review. It's clear to see
that the AMP-1 is truely a work of art that far surpasses it's
Eastern predecessor, both in value and looks


moe29


(i'd be glad to take that DEMO model off your hands if it
ever makes it back to you)

Thanks everybody.

I have to say that Positive Feedback declined on a review, as my amp resembles Gain Card too much. I had some reservations about it in the beginning as well, but this is really a smart way to built a chassis, especially if you are not into a big size. Another advantage of the Gain Card based chassis is lack of heatsink fins, which might introduce some resonances. I didn't really check it, but I feel that using those polycarbonate blocks to hold the filter caps, provides some additional damping, which may be beneficial for the sound.

You might also noticed, that I took Mrfeedback's advice from one of his posts and I'm using brass shaft extentions.

I'm glad that the reviewer was using acrylic base stand, as the amp indeed sounds better when positioned in that way. I'm currently working on a supporting platform, which will accomodate source switching as well. In this way, I'll move away from copying Kimura San, and will try to be more original

For $60 you could buy one blackgate.

After reading the review, I will have to finish my gainclone, and hook it up the my AKG-1000's and see how it sounds.

Good job Peter. I would expect some sales after that review.

Randy
