I can't tell that that is a kit. Does it come with the enclosure? That enclosure looks good.

Those aren't for order though. DIYZone runs huge group-buys through their commercial channel, and this is one of them. This usually means that less than 500 people will own these babies and they'll get them sometime between 6 months to a year in the future, after all the custom parts come in.

These also seem somewhat nicer than the usual clone rip-offs, just check out whet they're using. Vishay Dales and Rifa caps are standard for these guys. Too bad that they only seem capable of blatant rip-offs in design though. (But I have to say their Iris OTL headphone amps is pretty original)

Someone's making a buck somewhere down the line for sure. But if your gonna blatantly rip someone off, at least be subtle about it.

Since I read through their descriptions, I can provide some highlights of what the copycat is capable of doing for an A1.2 clone kits:
4 BHC ALS40 33,000uF/100V filtering caps per channel.
HOLCO resistors in most places.
2KV toroidal with shielding can in each channel.
2mH foil inductors for CLC filtering.
Matched MOSFETs.
With the enclosure, weights 220 lbs per monoblock. Heavier than the X1000.
USD$483 is only one of the three installments so the total is about $1500 for two monoblocks.

It's a shame that they are copying Mr. Pass's IP. Could be making some nice products for people capable of putting together kits like that.
