Default I want to build Aleph 2's.

using these circuit boards: http://web.vip.hr/pcb-design.vip/aleph-2.html

I'm not a veteran, but I know just enough to be dangerous. Would the above project be "over my head"???

Does anyone know if there are plans included for a powersupply? I've emailed them and am patiently waiting for a response.

If not, would someone be willing to help out???

Matt

Back to the Future reference?

thanks! I don't know how I missed that (P.S. Schematic) .

I emailed you before about building a case. How much do you want for your amp cases?

Matt,

They come with a nice instruction booklet - it's not a paint by numbers
guide, but will help you a lot.

just remember... big heatsinks!

if you look on my site now, ive added a little paragraph about people wanting to buy the cases. i was tired of getting emails offering like $200 for them, being that the metal is well beyond that.

How about just the face plates?

you guys are too cool.

the faceplates arent a whole lot less than the entire case. i dont know if i mentioned it yet, but the cases are getting scrapped actually. they dont meet my standards.

im working on replacing them right now. i have some solidworks drawings (some are on the site), which i will have all the case plates as 0.5" T6061. i didn't like those thin panel things. they didnt look right with the amp.

the new 0.5" plates will look great, add some weight to the amp (i thought it was a bit light before), and add sturdyness.

keep in mind that the metal for the faceplates was almost $300 each piece. and that milling for that kinda stuff is $70 or so an hour. they took 5 hours to do each. SO, at least $500 or so per faceplate.

btw, i will be getting a new digital camera here really soon, so i will have new pictures up, HIGH res pictures of those faceplates, and i have resumed working on my projects.

as soon as the preamp is done, those are next.

$750 for such a case seems rather fair to me (around 600 euro )) ). I bet the cases of an AX160 are a more expensive (should you be abe to buy them).

But $900 for 4' of that heatsink. That is a lot! You didn't get any discount

Btw why not build it of titanium for uber coolness

In the mean time, how will you finish them (to prevent stains etc). I use a spraybus with some transparant lackspray, but I don't like it. Makes the aluminium rather gray and dull. Still, its better than a lot of fingerprints.
