Default Thank you Salas, this motivates me a lot.

We already have someone to produce nice speakers... folded dipole internal tubes, and good imported drivers... you know, Selenium was sold...now we have imported made in Brasil

What is problematic is that my people will certainly join group buy for that purpose, but, speakers and enclosures are heavy... this is something i feel some sadness, as i cannot go on because of that.

Last week i have sent 12 kilos of electronics to my sons... i have paid 100 USD to the shipment.... this increases to much the price and them the cost turns this operation not very interesting.

But i am really thinking about that... also DIY switching power supplies and power peak meters (in development).

YouTube - Mede potencia e não usa fonte...brinquedo nôvo!

Thank you,

regards,

Carlos

You could just provide the assembled crossovers, the cabinet blueprints, and a special price deal for the drivers assortment with a loudspeaker units distributor in Brazil. You will collect and send him the funds and addresses, he will ship. But he will not make or send crossovers. So you can avoid a possible full kit hijack from the dealer. People would have to make their cabinets, or a woodworking shop associate could provide flat pack ready cut and fit grooved panels. Again his shipping.

Any amplifier is just a servant to the speaker. Caters for it. By creating a speaker that you feel it cooperates to your aspirations for what you feel is the DX voicing and correctly proportioned driving as a package, you will save uncertainty for many fans. Also any tweak you make to the amps you will know how it will translate to the fan's set up. A DX monitor in other words. Just my 2C.

Default Yes, for sure is the best way to do... speaker tuned to the amplifier

a system.... this is perfect.

I will manage to do something alike that..but will need some help from Brazilians.

They were already invited to do this... seeds where planted...let's wait them grow....i will be putting water on that and taking care of this seed for a while.

My people loves this stuff...we had group buy for transformer, for heatsinks, for board's kits, for parts to amplifier, condensers and all stuff..... they give up about enclosures because heavy and expensive..was not possible to obtain cheap price....but they love this way..... someone may be interested.

regards,

Carlos

Time to thank!
I've finished to build my 2 DX Blame, ST and ES. They work perfectly and the quality of the sound they produce is beyond all hope. I'm admiring: your amp is a masterpiece, Carlos. Many thanks to you, to Metal for his clever design and to Rudi for his enthousiasm and devotion to help and advise.

Default Merci beaucoup mon cher ami...thank you my dear friend

This is what drives me on...what turns interesting to work the way i use to work producing advertising and providing board's layout and also group buy......because this amplifier (Blameless in the reality) is really very good in sonics.... the best in overall performance i have ever listened too along this 50 years of research.

Thank you.... tjese red boards are lovely.... i have them here, but i had no courage to put solder on it....not to touch this Art Masterpiece....it will be keep untouchable as an example of good cooperative work we had; Rudi ,Metal and me, in the past.

Supercharged boards, the blue boards, were made obbeing my personnal rules and needs...but i could not achieve the manufacturing quality the German group achieved because of price...so....in board features, board quality, the red ones are the best.

Next amplifier.... an amplifier to produce an earthquake....more a demolition tool than an amplifier...the Troyan revisited and redesigned, will have red boards that gonna beat the German group quality..for sure they will.

a bientôt,

Carlos
