Default new Battery powered TK2050 Amps! 2 right now, I might build more later.

Hey guys, I have put together a complete amplifier kit using the TK2050 chipset and cigar box enclosures. This is for all the people who might not be ready or have the time to put a complete amplifier together. They sound amazing! They totally beat the pants off of my "boutique parts" Gainclone in terms of sound quality (not raw output, of course). In my opinion, the TK2050 is the best-sounding T-amp.

the eBay listing has all of the info, check it out. These are new, I've been building them in my spare time on weekends.

The price is $395+$20 shipping. That includes an Amp, Battery Box, Charger and input cable.

This is not meant to be a criticism rather an observation, your main board looks that that board from China which cost $50, then you add, input caps, 2*RCA, 2*cigar boxes and 2*batteries(I think), then you charge $395.

+ a good volume control + knob + switch + wiring + XLR charger socket + an auto-charger + a few hours of labor + a little bit of profit margin. It's really not unreasonable.

also, there is only one other fully-assembled TK2050-based amp available -- the Red Wine Audio Signature 30.2, and it's $3000. It has a nice case, an auto-shut-off, PIO input caps, and a beefed up output filter.

I'm offering something excellent that no one else has at this price point.

Okay, consider this:

- TK2050 board
- 2 Good MKP input caps
- 2 12v 5ah SLA batteries
- 24-step 1% SMD attenuator
- Auto-charger
- 2 gold-plated RCA plugs
- XLR Connector
- 2 Wood Cigar boxes
- Volume knob
- Mini-switch
- Various wires

- 3 build hours @ $40/hr

- A little profit margin


Consider that, then tell me how much YOU would pay for one of these? Thanks!

Good on you! Its a good price and considering it will probably sound as good as the Red Wine $3K commercial amp.

Regards,

Steve M.
