Default Hypex UcD 180 4 channel amp finished

Hi all UcD fans,

I wanted to share my experience with the UcD amplifier modules, while building a 4 channel by using 4 UcD 180 modules.
See the website below to watch.

It's been used in a bi-amping stereo set.

Housing, some parts and trannies came from Schuro in Germany (www.schuro.de), the rest from RS.

It's sound amazing, best I've heard so far.

Enjoy
Dan

Very nice, Daniel

Mine is not so good looking from the inside, but it has a two inch wood base that I suspect contributes to the sound (I hope).

two questions:
a) Where did you get these McIntosh caps? (And how much and how do they perform, ...etc).

B) Didn't you need a "soft start"?

Thanks for the pics.

Mauricio

a) McIntosh caps: I found them a few years ago at Apex Jr. (www.apexjr.com), not sure if they still have some.
Measured, the ESR is rather low, and as I say, I'm thrilled with the sound. I'm finishing another amp (but 2xUcD400) with the same diodes but Cerafine caps, I'll see if there's a difference.
b) Well, indeed, I think I need one because I blew already some fuses, and two days ago the 5amp main switch went short circuit

Hmm, much nicer than mine:
But the next will get a similar housing and MUCH more power.
Congratulations!
Regards, Timo
