Hi all
Saw Greg was having a special on his 150D/300D SKA kits, and, thought that I would let you all know. Refer to the following URL ... http://www.audiocircle.com/circles/v...ic.php?t=27344

Default Second listen - GB150D

Just about finished my GB150D - just final bias and put the cover on. So far I'm just blown away by the dynamics and detail. When I first connected up a couple of days ago and turned it on the silence was so uncanny I thought there was some kind of issue. It was a remarkable experience to hear the sound coming out of that silence as I turned up the volume.

The blue led shown in this view is still a bit bright - even after adding a 220R and then a 2k6 resistor so I think I'll try adding one more to try and tone it down before closing up.

Default GB150D back view

View from the back - I used Cardas binding posts and Vampire RCA's - also built the ic's using belden 89259 wire and Vampire male rca's.

Default top view of GB150D

top view showing plitron 300VA transformer. At Gregs suggestion I used a terminal block to distribute the power from trafo to ps's.

Rez, That is some mighty fine panel work.

Would you be able to post a pic of the front panel ?
It just looks so good.

What kind of cable is it going from
the input RCA to the input on the PCB?

Have to agree with your impressions of its
qualities as an amp.

KLe : It sounds exceptional .. Ive been looking
for a way of powering Linkwitz Orions.

Ive found it.

Wish I could take credit for the panel work but the chassis is a kit from DesignBuildListen in New Zealand. Although it was a bit tricky to implement I used Belden 89259 on the basis that if it was good for the Jon Risch formula IC it would be good to carry the same wire from the rca to the amp board. Will post another pic when I've finished biasing, tweaking the front LED and covering it up.

That's a nice chassis Rez.

I'm building my GB150D and GB150S modules this weekend but waiting for Greg's new chassis - only a couple of weeks away, I am told.
