Hello,

Panomaniac is this amp better than the SI Super-T?

I have the Cheap SI and the super-T which I have modded with poly input caps and stiffener caps.

I want to get something better, I found alot of DC offset on the super-t, the left channel has only 22mv DV, but the right channel has 144mv DC. I find the super-t a bit edgy and want something smoother.

Do you think think this amp sounds better than the super-t?

Thank You,

Robert

Hello All,

I just couldn't wait so I ordered one from buyoyo.com.

I hope I just didn't waste some hard earned cash.

I will post after I get it.

Out Here,

Robert

Hi Robert.
Good for you! You'll like it.

Is it as good as the Super-T? I don't know yet. There are no Super-Ts here for mods at the moment, and my own personal amp is out on loan. Need to get it back.

I think the first place to look will be the power supply. Maybe add to and/or upgrade what is in the box. The Trends seems to be a bit lacking in stereo seperation, good bass, and dynamics. May simply be a power supply cap problem.

The input caps look easy enough to replace. Might be worth while to do so. I'm sure it wouldn't hurt.

Let us know what you think!

Hi,

Thank you for your reply panomaniac.
You said it lacks a bit in, "separation and bass and dynamics".
If this is true then maybe I won't like this amp better than the super-t.
I am thinking you have a mod that includes panasonic FM's pretty soon. LOL.

Thank you again if it wasn't for this site I would never have learned so much.

Out,

Robert

P.S. I am using the t-amps with a pair of fostex fe167e's in a 24L cabinet tuned to 53Hz with a FT17H's crossed over with a 0.33mF GE cap.

You are correct, sir! That, and more. Panny caps, rewiring the inputs, shielding the inductors, some little caps here and there, maybe replace the pot.

I've already replaced the knob....

I guess the thing that I liked about the TA-10, is it has adjustment for DC offset, which on my super-t is just too much (atleast on the right channel which has 144mv DC, nice pop at power down).

I am sure you will come up with a great mod (please post when do, please).

Out,

Robert

Default for Roland and his Azumi

I just sent a mail to your site. I don't know if you got it though. It's about Trend and your speakers/compatability. I'm interested! Tranmission lines are usually power hungry. Please get back to me

Hi Shepperd

I got your mail. The Azumi's mini tl's are 85 dB/W/m 8 ohm. I designed the azumi's with rooms up to 20m2 in mind. The -3db point is 40hz in room. Small rooms boost bass. So it's possible to "tune"the tl much lower.

Here is an picture off the line:

The small enclosure at the beginning of the line is an internal helmholtz resonator to smooth a small resonance. The placement of the driver at 1/3 off the line closes the tml gap.

Groeten Roland
