I remember Thomaseliot's first response after finishing Truepath. He wondered if he would ever use the AMP10 again...

TA3020 has been used in several commercial designs that have been reviewed as being amongst the best of the best amps in the world...

I own two Truepath amps and have never heard better yet...

AMP32 is amazing for portable designs and blows any amplifier in it's size completely away, but horses for courses....

AMP10 is nice, much better than many midclass amps.

Truepath is really hard to beat, any commercial design that comes close will cost several times more money. But you need to be confident about your skills, experience with building amps is really necessary...

But as I always say:"most of the times you're too scared..."

So is it the best of the 41hz.com solutions in terms of sound quality?
Is it even better than the 2024 chip? The latter can really sing with the right speakers...

If your looking for the Tripath TA3020, look at the Motorola DCP-501 HT receiver - it has 5 channels of the TA3020 and can be had for less than $100 shipped on ebay.

The Moto Unit has a crappy preamp/DAC section, a DVD player, Tuner, that you SHOULD just toss. Just remove and rehouse the 5 channel Amp board. The amp board are clamped onto a large heatsink... and has a power supply board with a 500VA toroidal tranny. Real cheap stuff for modders/tinkers.

I have two of these units (10 channels of TA3020), and haven't had the time to rehouse/mod the units since building my UCD400s...they are just sitting in my closet...maybe next week...
