Halcro - The Worlds Only Super Fidelity Amplification Products
 
or so they chose to print on their pcbs... :p lol

for an hour today at work, I washed pcbs....

then for quite some time after that, I ground the numbers off the ic's so people couldn't copy the design... :xeye:

hmmm...

I thought that was illegal in Australia?

that was exactly what I was thinking... I couldn't imagine if I copied down the IC numbers that I'd be breaking any laws.... lol or would I??

I don't know why they even bother... maybe its more to hide how crap the amplifiers really are :p

$AU50,000 one of these amps will apparently set you back... and you need 2 for stereo... lol

Crap ? Do you know to make better :D ?

I can think of several civil laws you would be "breaking," to use your terminology. You might hope your employer does not read this thread.

I don't know its crap, I was just saying maybe it is... the PCB I was looking at was just the preamp.... nothing particularly special with the components chosen, so it MUST be a super duper design... :xeye: :xeye: :xeye:

meh... I haven't even looked at the ic's enough to remember the numbers... :p I have no intention of copying the numbers down either... even if my employer does read this thread, he has nothing to worry about, I have better things to do than copy IC numbers from pcbs, that would be next to useless anyway because no one has the schematic :p lol I personally think grinding them off is a tad useless....

I have read their amps sport the lowest distortion levels. They use switching power supplies and uses an error correction circuit they have a patent on. Complementary FETs are used in the output stage that are usually reserved for microwave systems...maybe to switch fast enough and render crossover distortion ineffective in the circuit....and more or so I read. I wonder if Nelson Pass has looked at their patent closely?
