stvnharr,

For the 120W Maya, do you use some different parts like 50V rail, less heat sinks, transformer, etc? So cost of parts for 120W Maya is a little less? Is the 120W Maya more
practical to build? I know most people if not all want a 200W amp.

Hi AS,

If you want to reduce the costs and require a lesser output, I have just the product for you, the SAKSA 85.
This can be set up to 50V rails on a pinch - not other changes - and the output devices are extremely robust 280W Fairchild mosfets. This is a very good sounding amplifier, in the same league of the Maya, but normally 85W//8R. With 50V rails you can get around 120W, and at $AUD1060 (around $USD650) you save a lot of money on the Maya.

I misunderstood, AS. I thought you wanted a 300W amp, but it turns out you want a little than the standard Maya 200W! My bad......

Hugh

There is no 120W Maya. It was part of the R&D for the whole Maya project.

However, since Hugh sells the modules and heatsinks as a package, and leaves the transformers for customer purchase, you could purchase Hugh's Maya package of completed tested modules mounted on heatsinks and save a little money by buying transformers with 35V secondaries. However, transformer cost varies more by current rating than secondary voltage, but you could likely save a little bit there. You would also have to inform Hugh of your intentions as it makes a difference in setting the quiescent current when testing the modules.
