It's nothing fancy. Just wanted to use the P-Ch MOSFET leftover in my stash.

Ok I just finished my ACA......I didn't finish it when Macfixer came over as I hadn't finalised the case.

I still haven't sorted the case but I wanted to hear THAT sound again. Been playing with it in the raw (the amp not me ) and flying thru my CD's.

What a sound!! Again thanks team DIYAudio and Mr Nelson Pass

Still got a monster turn off thump. I was hoping to use these with compression drivers but it will blow them up!!!!!!! need a soft shutdown thingy - any ideas

It sure is a virus - sometimes it makes me Insane In The Brain

(Cypress Hill dubbed up by Prince Fatty ft. Horseman) - my favourite track at the moment and descriptive of diy lunacy

Default pleasantly surprised.....

Having heard many good things about the ACA, I bought a pair of Kit from DIY store. The service at DIY store was top notch, kit was shipped in a day and received the package in less than a week.

Spent 2 nights assembling the kit and volia now it is singing. Source is a old niam cd2 > BA3 FE > ACA > Markaudio Alpair 6 floorstander. I am amazed by the sound quality.

Once agian, thank you Papa Pass.

Anyone tried build them of them for HT application? It would be interesting...

Hi,

I just got my aca's up and running. I am using a Bottlehead Quickie preamp, and DIY bookshelf speakers with Fostex FE126En drivers. My source is an old Nakamichi CD4. The system sounds great and seems to be rapidly improving. The Amps work flawlessly. The speakers are quite bright, but the drivers only have a few hours on them. They improve by the hour. Overall, the whole package sounds better than I ever imagined it would. Thanks for the great amp kits. The only problem is, now I am whithout a project. Hmmm... Maybe bigger speaker cabs... An F5?
