Has it really been that long? But as they say, classics never go out of style..

Mine are 9 years old. Still work perfectly though I don't listen to them very often. My room is fairly small and the fan noise get to me after a while.

Default Yeah

Terry, I hear you on that!

Also anyone who says 60C is when touching the Heatsink hurts, I cannot believe. I think it hurts about 53C but maybe I'm just a wuss.

Seems like you and I have built quite a number of amps- should we start a comparison thread? Which one do you like the best?

Maybe I'm just wondering if I a have lost out on the the newest DX amps and Honey Badger? But then again, I have a few amps over here that have not been plugged in for 2 or more years.

It really doesn't seem like ten years since I was finalising the PCB whilst watching the snooker, but the World Championship has come around again so it must be!

Mine is currently on the shelf, needs new PSU caps, the s/h ones I used finally reached the end of their natural life. I think I need to design some new speakers to use it properly, currently I'm running multi-way systems with active crossovers, and it just won't fit in the rack with all the other amps.

Or, I could build a bigger rack.

I didn't know what a s/h capacitor was, so tried to look it up-

Type SH is a radial leaded aluminum electrolytic capacitor with a +105 șC, 2000 hour long life rating. The SH is a high reliability product and is ideal for high quality applications that require long life in high temperatures environments.

Can't wait to see your electricity bills. You must have been using the amp a LOT!

Is "second-hand" a UK term?

Widely used in the States also to indicate formerly owned but not junk. Similar to how 'inexpensive' replaces cheap - which can imply low quality
