XLR and Speakeron connectors, is this for your home Hi-Fi?
Yes, although I'll also use it in my home studio; I've grown to like the robustness of studio-type connectors. Speakons in particular allow very easy and quick A/B tests on leads, amps, and speakers.

Cheers

Possibly the plastic in the package starts smelling nasty at 150C...

I'm sorry, I didn't take any photos of the bare boards. They conveniently have the component values screen printed on the top. You should probably mail Les at avondaleaudio@tiscali.co.uk to ask about buying outside the UK. I'm sure it can be arranged.

I don't have a Naim to compare it with, I'm afraid. Naims do seem to have a reputation for instability if you muck about with the loudspeaker cables too much, and I've seen or heard no sign of this in my amp. Subjectively, it sounds like a 'wire with gain' - I'm aware of many faults or foibles in my speakers, room acoustics, CD player and the recordings I'm listening to, but haven't found anything yet to pin on the amp.

Cheers

Default More temptations:

With the XLR inputs do you find that you have to run the input pots at very low settings 10 account for the +4dB to -10dB difference?

I'm actually envious of the speakerons. They are too convenient. A friend set up his broadcast facility with a speakeron patch panel so that he could swap amps and monitors on the fly. Very convenient.

I enjoyed the Avondale web site a lot. Just what I need, more temptations.

No; in fact there's not enough gain to reach full output with -10dB input.

CD players have about 2Vrms maximum output (I seem to recall it's actually part of the CD spec). I usually listen at 50%-70% on the volume knob, which I'm very happy with - why impair SNR and everything else with more gain than you need?
