I'm sorry but is there any chance someone could provide a link for Arjen's kits..?

I've exhausted google searches and only gets hits for threads discussing his offerings.

Any help is appreciated.

TIA

Opinions wanted...

Better to go with the Mk2 or the Mk3...?

Is it just me, or doesn't the Mk2 seem to have better numbers when compared to the Mk3.

TIA

The Mk 2 board uses the Tripath TA2020 while the Mark 3 board uses the Tripath TA2024 chip. These chips have slightly different specifications with the Tripath TA2020 amp (Mk 2 board) providing a bit more output.

That was the small amount I was able to figure out on my own...

That minor difference in output isn't a concern really, but newer isn't always better. So I thought I'd pose the question to the board and see what kind of feedback I got.

Thanks for the response...

There is a lot of Real World difference in the Output of these Chips..The TA2020 can easily power Larger Speakers than the TA2024...You can use a 13.6V Supply to do this, the TA2024 can take no more than 12V. I have a Modified Sure TA2024, and Arjen's TA2020...Given a Choice, it's Arjen's..Hands Down..

Damn...

I pulled the trigger on Arjen's TA2024 already. Well I was told that there is going to be a delay in shipping. Maybe they'll let me flip the order to the 2020.

To be honest I'm more concerned about the distortion levels than the output power. The intent is to use the amp with a speaker testing rig I'm putting together. So although the extra power would of course be nice, the THD is the most improtant spec.

I think I'll let the order stand as it is, and try out the 2020 at some other time. The Helder camp has been jumping through enough hoops for me already. I can't speak highly enough about the service to date.
