Hey Carlos,

this is beginning to be boring and annoying. Start a new thread or leave this alone.

One last thing:
I think I own an explanation to Brian, and also maf_au.

I did receive an offer from Brian, we wanted to send me a PCB. maf_au just did that too.
Someone else (by PM) offered to send me a completely assembled Rev. A amp for me to try and send back.
I declined all this.
Why?
I could accept everything and make some more amps, wouldn't I?
But I don't think it's correct, and the reason is: would you all accept my honest oppinion about the amp, for the good or for the worse?
And if I would make some changes and report back, would you accept?
I'm not willing to do that, anyway.
So, these offers, although I thank to those who did, would generate more discussions and trouble than what they are worth.
And I don't have the time and patience for all that.

As for reports, everybody has them, and I have them too.
Here's someone that dared to build an amp following my schematics (amp and psu):

There's much more, including the only person that I know that dared to build my AD815 preamp. His reports are so enthusiastic it's contagious, but that's on my PM.

You follow your discussions in a creative way, and good luck.

Okay, I have a question for everyone. Is anyone who bought or plans to buy a RevC Kit planning on building a RevA with it? Or is everyone going to build a RevC? I'm wondering how important it is to include RevA parts in the kit. RevC parts are basically all the revA parts, plus some additions, and the replacement of, I think, just one cap.

FWIW: I think it is a good idea to keep the extra parts for rev.A so that people can try both, if they want...

It's a good idea to keep both but if it means waiting longer before they ship I'd source them myself.

Okay honestly, I probably wouldn't bother trying Rev A unless I wasn't entirely happy with Rev C for whatever reason. And if it's so few parts could easily source them myself.

What's the verdict on which version is more musical?

I just hooked up with 200 of the RevA caps, so I will be shipping the first batch tomorrow. RevA will be standard part of the kit as planned.

Default chassis

Hello all

Just started the case work for the rev. c amp. Material is 1/8" aluminum; this one will have wood front and back; heatsinks are recycled motorolla mobile radio; will be attached to the metal insides for thermal transfer.Top and sides are rotary sanded; thinking of finishing in clear lacquer.Size is 11-1/2" wide, 13" deep, 4-1/2" high; on-off switch and power chord socket will come from a comp. power supply; fuses to be inside for rails and main power.And maybe my blue l.e.d. fan mounted underneath.

cheers
doggy
