Default FS: Hypex UcD180ST based amplifier

For sale is a completed and wonderful sounding stereo amplifier using two Hypex UcD180ST channels powered off of a single Hypex SMPS180 power supply. All components were purchased at the end of September 2011.

The case is a Hammond HM906 of size 8.66"x6.50"x2.03". Connectors are the gold plated ones currently available directly from Hypex.

The sound is accurate, transparent, and rich. The base is strong. After building, I compared it to my Hypex UcD400HG with HxR regulators and couldn't detect ANY difference in sound quality (hopefully I don't start a flame war with that statement, this is just my ear with my setup). The tests were performed blind with my Adire K281's (dual 8" woofers each channel) and 1969 KLH Model 5 (with 10" woofer each channel). I find that the Model 5's are good for testing because they're power hungry, needing a good amp to push them properly. These Hypex amps really make them come alive!

Total cost for me was ~$500 plus labor. Since I know there's high demand for Hypex amps and this is a fully functional unit I'm asking for anyone interested to send me an offer above this amount and I'll sell it to whomever is highest in roughly the next week.

Maybe some pictures of the inside would get people to open their wallets a bit more.

You're absolutely right! Those were some pretty vanilla photos so lets give a look of the inside. The closeup in the fourth photo shows how I've managed to cram the Hypex amps into such a small enclosure, by using 1/8" thick angle aluminum to thermally couple the heatsinks to the aluminum case.

My apologies for not responding earlier... very busy at work and didn't have time to dig for information. According to the data sheets on Hypex's website, the idle power loss of the power supply is 2 watts and each amplifier module has an idle power loss of 4 watts. So 10 watts total idle power loss.

For shipping internationally from US to the Netherlands is ~$50. For anyone else who would like to know, check www.usps.com and select the "Priority Mailģ International Medium Flat Rate Box".
