Default VSP LABS Trans Mos Amplifier

I picked up this amplifier today for next to nothing as it is in need of repair. I really purchased it for the case and power supply and I got it really cheap but when I got it home and had a closer look it seemed like a very well designed piece. Also the damage was more extensive than I imagined.

It is very difficult to find any information on the net about this amplifier but I had a little time and I managed to gather the following and thought to share it.

Default Break on through...

Originally I thought the VSP Labs amp chassis would make a wonderful home for some new design but I continued to scour the internet to research its origins. I wanted to find out what VSP Labs was all about. It was very difficult as there is very little documentation or information to be had. The opinions I found on the internet boards seem to echo the same information; that the Transmos amplifier was awesome, unique and marketed at too low a sale price.

I continued to search the net and then I stumbled upon the VSP “creators” name. Then I Googled this information and I found the patent (earlier posted).

It wasn’t enough for me. I called a bunch of companies that once sold or serviced the VSP products in the US. All I could come up with was a few scanned pages of the owner’s manual. After that I had to drop it for a while but I left the amplifier beside the computer at home and I kept looking at it.

Like some crazed maniac I started to Google the authors name until I found an internet post indicating the firm the author is currently working with. I don’t need to get into the details of all that and it is of no importance or significance to this thread. This thread should remain VSP topic focused.

I called the authors company and left a voice mail in the appropriate mail box. I got a call back the very next day. I am shocked by my actions that I pursued this amp so far and I am amazed at the results. I’m a little embarrassed to share this information but it is now part of the story.

Cheers,

Shawn.
