Default 1000W is greater than 700W

The "Ko'lok" seems to be vaporware. Dr. Gizmo was going to build a 50KW amp and write a book about it also. Never came to pass as I remember.

Nelson, I'll bet you sleep just fine..... What does anybody need with a 1000 Watt amp by the way?

Hope you guys don't think I'm into BIG amps. I just remembered seeing such an interesting creature on Dynaudio site.....

I'm running my JLH'96 amps at the moment and they give me some 10+ watts and I'm very happy with that. Ooo but wait, if one considers the physical size of the amps mine are guite big also 50cm x 32cm x 14cm (19x12x5.5 inches for you there over the ocean) and as they are monoplock theres two of them. It's quite fun - every time a "non audiophile" visists me they oooh and aaah about these babies being ONLY 10W : )

Try playin some rap or R&B and see what happens =) 10 watts goes real fast. For non bassy material 10 watts can indeed go a long way.

I hope there was no pun intended here ..... it was a shocker if intended !

I wasn't going to even bother to look at this, then I recognised the URL as Rod Elliot's page. I have to concede it does sound a little "entrepreneurial", however other aspects of Rod's site have been quite helpful (to me at least, ie. a non-EE enthusiast) and most of his projects seem solid enough.

I appreciate the site probably offers little to the likes of Harry, but there you go!

Oh god ..... I have flash-backs to my efforts in trying to explain dB/W to some fellow rank novice

It would actually be quite interesting to hear the high-end X-series lined-up against each other.

Actually, down here at the bottom of the globe, it would just be nice to go along and hear any of NP's offerings

cheers, mark

Default Even bigger...

The fP 6400, 2 x 2300W @4 ohms, 2 x 3200W @2 ohms, 10 kg (22lbs)

The amps from swedish Labgruppen are quite cool(!) but they are intended for PA.

http://www.labgruppen.se/

BTW: The 20kW amp from Australia is "wapor amp" right now. Bold idea though. I'm very interested in the future result.
