Beautiful cases, Filipe, congratulations on the detail and implementation........
You need only to put the modules in them! Not long now.

It should have come from you, Hugh. It looks very beautiful and especially the signature. I think it would be good if you create a "visual branding" (like Audio Research for example) of your amp instead just a logo. People then expected to relate the "branding" with something, such as that the product will ensure listening enjoyment.

Many people seems to be very satisfied listening to your amps. I just checked one of your amp spice file and indeed it qualifies as an amp to keep. May be your other amps are like that too.

Super-duper job with the cases... congratulations!

Look forward to more updates, specially when you get the modules from Mr. Dean.

Wow! Gorgeous!
It doesn't bother me at all to admit that yours is a much more attractive and professional case than what I did.
This amplifier merits a first class enclosure such as yours!

Ah...the Ides of March !! Beat them !

After some months of beer drinkin and some forced diet between glasses ( never start brewing at home...this sh** puts on weight like there is no tomorrow) i finally have my sweet litle amps...

My package arrived very snuggly arranged with all 5 channels of Maya Power goodness within. When opening the box i was like a kid on Xmas and both my youngsters were thrilled with the contents..even not having the nearest clue on what were those heavy bad *** looking things...

So fast forward, i did not sleep for 2 nights in a row...yes did i say that i was like a kid on xmas ? I have now assembled 2 boxes. Only one to go.
Of course i did connect them and i am listening as i write..........

Here they are, the litle buggers . All assembled with the new top cover with extra fins to ventilate :

I love the way the green LED shines through a 1mm hole...

The internal "arrangement" still needs some care.
The heatsinks were SUCH a tight fit (350mm long in a 350mm case) that i had to route the wires over the top of them. Not my initial plan, but my bad i miss calculated on that.

The RCA wires still need to be soldered properly and finished with heatshrink. Nevertheless it plays.

Oh...did i say IT PLAYS ??

I could start describing the sound now...but i only have about 2h listening...and the beast is still running in. So i will reserve comments for now. Lets just say : CONGRATULATIONS HUGH...YOU DA MAN !

This is the MOST musical amp i ever listened to...and i only started listening now....

Quick question for Hugh
Forgot to ask about quiescent current.
2 modules measured 40mv so I let them be.
The 3rd module measured 27mv so I increased to 44mv.
Maybe because this one is connected to much less demanding speaker and does not get so hot?
