I got 30 of those Apex Jr. switches, and they are not drop in replacement. They require larger hole.

I knew that when ordering them though and I'm still looking for drop in replacement.

For turning off "long-term"(ie vacation, weekend/weeklong trips etc.), removing power cord either from the amp or from the wall shouldn't present that much trouble

Default Thanks!

Hi Peter,

A big thank you for making this chassis available.

It took me a long time but I finally managed to
put it all together last night and have a functioning
GC.

Cheers,
Dennis

P.S. I looked at the LM3875 datasheet this morning.
If I calculated things correctly (using the typical figures),
my GC burns a total of ~4W at idle.

Peter,

I wanted to thank you as well for putting the kit together. It's really a sharp looking little amplifier. I didn't use the included maple sides, but instead some peruvian walnut. I keep meaning to post a picture, but it has to be the most well documented gainclone chassis on the board so (except for the walnut) everyone has basically seen it already.

Scott.

I also used more exotic wood in my personal version. Here's the amp with Mardon Burl side panels.

Hey Peter-

Sorry I have to ask.

Why did you do the chassis under "Specialized Kits", and now your signature reads "Audiosector"?

Sorry if I'm being nosy.

Specialized Kits was actually created for the chassis offer only.

With AudioSector I have more ambitious plans.

Besides, I really like that name, especially when industrial music creates my main musical interests. The domain name, audiosector, was sugested to me by Brian, during one of our telephone conversations.

In one way, it's also continuation of Audio Zone, with more personlized projects, reflecting my philosophy and approach to audio equipment building.
