Default Finemet Transformer Volume Control

Feastrex Guys in Japan were using newmann W444ST for their volume control, preamplifier.

W444ST is VERY good preamplifier for the price. It has transformer coupled solid state circuit. After refreshing electrolytic capacitors with Panasonic FC, it sounds very nice!

Development for NF9ex is done, and finally we have time for experimenting with Finemet Transformer volume control

Seiden premium rotary switches, Custom Finmet Transformers, and wiring with same solid core wire in the transformers.

Aren't they beautiful?
These are Akiyama-san's handy work!

Teramoto-san's unit has beefy base and Stillpoints Ultra SS. These Stillpoints feet are amazing thing! These particular Stilppoints Ultra SS were mine, but when he saw Seiden Switches, Custom Finemet Transformers and base board, he decided to snatch my Stillpoints! He did not ask... He just sent me this photo

Default Amplifiers in Progress, with all finemet irons

Maekawa-san (Amplifier builder @ Feastrex Japan) is working hard on my amps. CV4055 push-pull and TA300B SET. These will be my demo amplifier for Audio Feast.

If you are a Feastrex owner in USA, please contact Audio Feast for special pricing!

Both amplifiers use finemet transformers and finemet chokes. Yes, power transformers are also finemet, and rectifier cuircuits are choke input.

CV4055 push-pull
8w/ch
This amp is just assembled and finalizing the detail. Conceptual design for CV4055pp was done by Teramoto-san at Feastrex. Detail design and building were done by Maekawa-san.

Takatsuki 300B SET
9w/ch,
Urushi wood work is done by Tanaka-san.
We are waiting for some parts for finishing capacitor wiring on the top of the amp. I am expecting to have this amp in early May in Nashville, TN.

Vintage Maxonic drivers are very popular in Japan. Some of their drivers are field coil drivers. Their price on auction market is much heigher than original retail price. We had demonstration with all finemet TA-300B SET, with all finemet field coil power supplies (6 channel). Speaker crossover inductors and level attenuators are also finemet inductors. CD player in the picture is also heavily modified with finemet DAC transformers and other special devices.

Default TA-300B SET

Hello merk,

This is our first prototype, my demo - personal amp for Audio Feast This is 300B SET, and power is about 9W. Yes, you can use your WE300B.

TA-300B itself costs about $1600 pair in USA. I think this amp will be no less than $30K. This amplifier will be made to order, and chassis and finish design can be arranged.

It weight over 30Kg, over 70LBS. We are considering mono block due to this weight.

Kenji

hello!
I would be very grateful if someone could give me information about Feastrex and Mr. Hal Teramoto. I'm trying to contact them through email, without success. They seem to have disappeared into thin air. Can anyone tell me if the company is still in business?

Guy

Default Mr. Teramoto left Feastrex

Mr. Teramoto left Feastrex over a year ago. Feastrex is not same any more. It looks different and sounds different.

Mr. Teramoto is developing his new line. I will continue to support the master craftsman, Mr. Teramoto.

Cheers,
Kenji
