Default Any input on the new Dayton TK2050?

This sounds like a pretty good deal to me (when/if they get it in). Any input, advice or experience with this TK2050 amp and accessories?

Bump for me, too! I'm hoping this package will be great stock, and will be able to accept some of the more influential mods from the big Tk2050 thread...

Looks cool. Thanks for the tip. I am CRAZY about my modified Sure 2X100 amps which run the TK2050 chip set. I just ordered 10 more so I will have plenty ready as I move forward on my PC cross 4 ways.

FYI, I inquired at PE today and they're expecting the first batch of these on 4/20. They also do not have any further technical info available.

I wonder if those 4mm outputs are 3/4" apart?

Default In Stock

Looks like these units are shipping. I just received a tracking number, and the product page now says "in stock."

They don't say, but it looks like they only have one power chip, which pretty much limits them to 8 ohm speakers. And the 24v brick is nothing to write home about.

The Sure with a Meanwell power supply for the same money seems like a much better deal. You just need to find a box.

Default Dta-100

True, but the average person doesn't have the time, skill, or inclination to build and troubleshoot an amp (even a prefabricated Sure board). And it's easier to recommend a finished product to friends and family.

I suspect one of the biggest obstacles to wider Class-T adoption is the fact that most finished amps fall into one of two categories: 1) inexpensive but barely powerful enough for an "ordinary" set of speakers (e.g., TA2024, TA2020), 2) powerful but expensive (e.g., Virtue One). A TK2050 amp like the DTA-100 is a middle ground between these two extremes.

Thumbs up I had one of these...

Hi, I had one of these units. Some comments:

1) Performed very well, pretty good sound and a decent smps.

2) Not as good as the Virtue by any means, but much better than pretty much any receiver or even other chip-amps like the ones based on the National Semi sets.

3) If you want to mod it, it's going to be difficult due to the size of the package.

4) Easiest mod would be to outboard the coupling cap.

5) It's true this Dayton amp does NOT like 4 ohm loads. For that go to the hifimediy or Sure boards and build yer own... or get a Virtue which is a really, really great amp.

But for a quick and easy solution for 8 ohm speakers, especially if they are efficient, the Dayton is very pleasing to the ear.
