Thumbs up UCD400 w. AD8620 upgrade for sale or trade!

Hi folks,

I have 2 brand-new unused UCD400 modules with AD8620 upgrade and would like to sell them or trade in with 2 Zappulse SE modules. Shipping is free in Europe!

Anyone interested?

Michael

P.S.: I like the UCD's, however I was unable find a place in Europe
where they can sell me quality capacitors and transformers
within a reasonable timeframe (less than 5 months). I've been
waiting more than 2 months for a reply from a dealer and I realize
that I must give up building this amp now...otherwise I'll still be
waiting for the caps until I retire...I must get a complete kit now.

My advice,

Keep the UcDs, the ZAPpulses are more expensive so who wants to trade them? Just use the LCaudio predator power supply (assuming you are referring to those as being a complete kit). I'm sure the UcD is easier for DIY then ZAPpulse. The predator supply works perfectly with UcD (I'm doing that)

Best regards

What exactly are you looking for? Almost any supplier should be able to supply you with caps and transformers and I can't see how this "problem" could be solved by switching to ZAPpulse.

You are buying your parts from the wrong suppliers. I bet there are several forum members close to where you are located that can help you to obtain what you need.

Doesn't hurt to ask...................

Default Transformers

The transformer part can definitely be solved by http://www.trafoshop24.de/. The stuff they sell is made by http://www.transtecrk.de/ who I sent an email a little over a week ago.

Yesterday two nicely potted 800 VA transformers arrived at my doorstep. Compared to what I've seen elsewhere, the price is very fair and shipping cost of the 15.x kg package was also very reasonable.

What about capacitors? Did you have anything special in mind? I have more or less the same problem, so unless something interesting shows up, I will order some RIFA PEH200 22000uF/100V from http://www.elfa.se/ ...

I have 2 unused Zappulse 2.2SE waiting for some components. But if I woud have to chose again the ucd400 would probably be on the top of my list (mainy because it seems a little more foolproof and also because I'm from the Netherlands).

However trading now is too much trouble (and I already have 2 1000VA/45VAC trafoos that don't fit on a UcD400).
Actually my advice is to stick with them, you can use the LCaudio powersupply parts or buy some separate parts easily (but I'm not familiar with inet shops in the UK).

I know a guy in Holland that wanted to sell his Zappulse 2.2SE (from the same groupbuy),

I agree on that one. Maybe if you give us more detail I can suggest some suppliers or advice.

And if you just want to buy a complete PS module (like the predator) this one may be a alternative (depending on your sec AC voltage)

http://www.bmm-electronics.nl/Produc...roduct_ID=3367
http://www.bmm-electronics.nl/Produc...roduct_ID=3311

Just add a 800 or 1000VA toroid.

My experience with this Dutch vendor is that he answers the email very quickly and also is willing to help with searching for special parts that are not on their site

Thank you guys for your suggestions. My problem is that I am looking for a high-end PSU like the NT-E from Schuro. However,
Schuro is unable to deliver this PSU at this time. If I decide to
build everything from scratch, I still need good capacitors.
I had Slit-Foils and T-Nets in mind. I don't know whether
the LCAudio power supply can be tweaked or whether using
Slit Foils or T-Nets make any sense in terms of sonic quality (compared to the performance of the LCAudio PSU). My idea
to try Zappulse was primarily because LCAudio claims that the
sound quality of the modules was independent of the PSU caps.
My second problem is the transformer but I could try www.trafoshop.de

I will be glad to hear your suggestions regarding sources
to buy capacitors.

Thanks again,

Michael
