Talking Harharharhar...

Yeah. Really, I think he meant yF and not F. I mean the inrush current would blackout a small city.. that is, if the transformer and bridge rectifiers would survive!

Seriously, WHY did DynAudio make that ****? If they have plans to sell *lesser* gear based on that technology I could understand it. I don't think they are however. If it's for developing their speakers, then I could understand it. But why go trough all the trouble with the design and stuff, if it's a lab model?

It's gear wanking, nuffin' else.

Wink Out of the world price.


Don't know why people would be upset that somebody is selling something for an extreme price. Nobody I know is forced to buy the thing. Free market at work. If someone who wants a one-of product to brag about wants to pag mega bucks to get one, that makes no difference to me.

People with more money than they know what to do with buy all kinds of things that are priced out of reason, cars and jewlery to name a couple of items. If they wish to pay for Dynaudio to do its research, that is great, as far as I am concerned.

Default Dont make fun: I'm planning to buy this amp

This amp will complete my system, which consists of

source: sansui cd player

speakers: Cerwin vega thumpers with 18" dual woofers.

I think the high current capicity will give the vega's some etherial transparency and a touch of nuttiness. I mostly listen to Beastie Boys, and so need precise imaging.

Er, i think potential energy stored in a cap is
1/2 C V*V
so for say 400,000F at 80V
Energy = 1,280,000,000J
1280MWatts for 1 second

I wonder if the nuclear reactors come with it?

On further reading i think it was designed by a RF nut, i see that the preamp works in to the 'multi-megahertz range'.
I wonder if it is still linear at that range?

Looks like the power amp will only just be sutable for low power type earphones because most loud speakers 'turned mushy and deformed'. What an outstanding review! give that man a jurno. of the year award NOT
