I received the S.M.S.L. SA-36A pro amplifier just a couple days ago. This unit comes with a 24 volt adapter and uses the related Texas Instruments TPA-3118 chip. Delivery took about 2 weeks from amazon.com. I won't pretend that this is the end all be all amplifier but for the $55 paid, I am simply amazed. It drives both my Foxtex ff105wk speakers and my Ascend Acoustics Sierra 2s just fine.

Default Driving Markaudio 10p?

Driving my Pensil 10p pair with a Pass F5 clone (see Pass Forum for info). Class A, incredible sound. Also use TDA8920 Class D amp and DIYTube ST35 clone (EL84s). All amps sound fine on most material. For best recordings and female vocal/choir, Pass is the winner. You can build all three of these amps for less than $1K and figure out what you like best.

I have been using an F5, slightly modded for a bit more bass, and it's a rocking good amp! If I was doing it again I would like very much to try the Aleph J.

Currently however I've switched to a gainclone for the extra power, and I would say it's more musically engaging. Peter daniels gainclone is next in line for a build

Default Amp Camp Kit

Hi Guys,
I've made a dedicated thread for an Amp Camp kit:

Amp Camp Kit with Markaudio drivers

Not to take over from this thread, more to give Amp Camp Kit followers some info on matching Markaudio drivers and on partnering pre-amplfication and source.

Could be of attentional interest to all ampers on this thread.

Cheers
Mark.

I couldn't justify the nCores just yet, but have a Hypex kit on its way, with their DLCP and a pair of the UcD 180 HrX to get me started. Will need another few if I get some new A12PW's...
