Default Aksa questions

I'm looking at the Aksa 100 as a possible project. Two questions- can a rank beginner handle this, and how difficult is it to build this as dual mono?

It should be okay if you know how to solder and use a multimeter, and understand how the power supply works.

By dual mono, do you mean completely separate power supplies for each channel? If so, then it's no more complex, just more work and more parts required, more chassis space required, etc.

How does the AKSA 100 come? Pre-assembled, or do you need to solder in all the parts? Either way it really just comes down to your soldering skill. If you haven't got much experience, practice soldering something else first until all your connections are shiny and strong and didn't take 4 attempts to achieve.

Good luck, it's a wonderful amplifier. Worth the effort.

Start small

Even though Aksa amps are "simple" and easy to assemble, just small errors can ruin an expencive project
And repair work is the harder part that could ruin it even further if not done properly

Im not saying you cant do it, but you should really build a cheap kit first to get just a little feel of how it all works
sometimes we know very little, and sometimes we know too much

You can get this amplifier any way you want it. You can do a complete build, soldering in all the parts yourself and testing the boards. Or I believe Hugh has quite a number of Aksa 100 trade-in modules all ready to go.
The psu is designed as separate for each channel, so it comes as dual mono, with no extra work required on your part.
You have to supply the transformers, chassis, and a few other parts.

Best to email Hugh directly with your questions.
