Hey Wombat! How about letting us know a little about your new
amps?

A simple chasis is a good chasis!

Nice set up. Congrats

Hallo moe29!

Against your project that took even years i am aschamed of
the simpleness of mine. I talk about your cool ZENs.
You are the real diy´er. Mine where nearly finished as i got
them. Just some holes and some parts to change and listen in
the next weeks.

I doubt i can tell you to much about the technic behind them.
They are based on Avantgardes amplifiers. I think just posting
this picture will get me into trouble
But i am so proud of their sound...

Cheers!

The most annoying thing in here is to talk about what technic it uses.
To me it looks like some threads in here lame the whole community to
discuss further.
All amps seem to sound the same, leave alone the cables!
After all, all our CDs are only Zeros and Ones - Very easy.
Speakers which are only moving cylinders can´t be that different!

Why to try further

Very nice work, Wombat. I like the way all the power supply components are mounted on the PCB - moving them closer to the point of action must be a bonus for stability.

How powerful is the amplifier? The output devices look quite small given the size of the power transformer - is that a 500VA part? How warm does the amp get during use?

I particularly like the ground plane on the top layer of the PCB. Is it your own design?

Nice one,
Tim.

The Power Transformator is only a shielded 270VA. The PCB are left
over prototypes from a fellow. The heat transfer seems pretty good
and the whole case gets overall a bit more than handwarm.

After all these are prototype boards from Matthias Ruff.
I had the luck to get my hands on these.

They are pretty damn accurate sounding Mosfets with a very fast
scheme. These are the first solid state pieces that sound tube
alike in a way to me on my system with controlled bass.
Unbelievable! Isn´t it!?

I am just starting to enjoy them more and more...

This may look like thread pushing or promotion but it isn´t!
I heard these Monoblocks now for many weeks and nothing can compete i owned!
Just wanted to celebrate the experience in listening.
My health tells me otherwise and the next weeks will tell more.
Glad to had all the sound around me till now!
