Default Odyssey Stratos schematic.

Has anyone seen the Odyssey Stratos schematic ? A friend tells me that it sounds great . He adds that it sounds very 'dynamic' . So what is the general opinion about this amp and is there anything special about the configuration ?
They have been around quite some time I think and so I think many of our US members might have come across one.
Anyone ?
Cheers.

Default I almost bought a pair just before I found this site

Pound for pound and dollar for dollar they are a lot cheaper than the one and only babies. Do not know about how they fair if compare their sound quality though. May be Bryston are closer match?

I much prefer them over the Bryston's 7BSST. I did have a pair of them once.

i own a pair of odyssey mono extremes and had previously owned odyssey khartago monos. they are both based on the symphonic line rg 11amplifier designed by mister rolf gemien of duisberg germany. i also own a odyssey tempest preamp based on the rg 2 mk3 also designed by mr gemien and i love the way all of the gear sounds. i think that odysseys cost vs performance is tough to beat . i also own a symphonic line vibrato cd player designed and hand made by rolf gemien in germany and it sounds more like a good phonograph than a cdp and i firmly believe that rolf gemien must have very good ears based on the sonics of his designs.

I would also like to have schematic of stratos.

Although I really like the build & sound quality of stratos, I alwasy wondered why it has such big heat sinks when they don't even gets warm.
I was thinking about increasing the bias a little bit, but couldn't justify.

Any experiment with Stratos anyone?
Well there's no reason to ruin the 10-year warranty if you're the original owner, but I guess the warranty is shortened if you buy used, and now Stratos' are selling really cheap (considering the quality).

A lot of commercial gear uses too small heatsinks and rely on the customer not driving it hard. If driven hard over some hours it burns out. See it as proper engineering. Good thing.

Don't do that. There's an optimum bias point, changing it will only make distortion worse.

Have fun, Hannes

Hannes,

Thanks for the reply.
Yes I agree with you it's already designed to be optimal so I don't need to ruin it by experimenting.
However, I sometimes just feel like try different things and I believe I'm amused by "different" sound, not only by "better" sound.

Doug
