Default First official review of the GainClone

http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/a...audiozone.html
Looking back at our first 6 months of 2003 with its 40 hardware reviews total, the Audio Zone AMP-1 strikes me as the most exciting discovery yet - and there were quite a few bona fide hotties already. The AMP-1 is the one I'm most keen on turning fellow music lovers on to. It's got the mindblowing sonic merits and complete package perfection I'm now intent on getting across. Hopefully today's review accomplished that. In case things aren't clear yet, here goes the matching award:

If you ever needed proof of the hipe and rip off involved in the audio industry this is it. 60 bucks worth of amp for 1765 what a bargin.

Wow, Peter !!!

Congratulations with this achievement! I hope you'll have success with this nice amp. And don't forget to sell it to somebody in the Netherlands, so I can hear it

The part about the gaincloning in the article is funny. I think it's really cool that your amp has been reviewed! You'll be busy...

Dear Peter: Congratulations on a fine review!

If your posts on DIYAudio shortly diminish to a bare trickle, we will all know the reason why.

best, jonathan carr

It is actually $1795, but for you I'll let it go for $2000.
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.
