It's pretty quiet in here these days!
For all you AKSA fans, I thought I'd let you know that I've posted my 100N+ on the Swap Meet. Please put the word out if you know anyone who's looking for one.
I hope all is well with you, Hugh.
Hope you found a happy home for your 100N+.
I've been designing and building tube amps for the last 5 or more years
I suddenly had need for another power amp.
I had previously sold my AKSA 55N+ to a local guy who had been buying and selling amps for several years but not finding anything to his ultimate liking, until the 55N+ that is. I really regretted parting with it.
Out to the shed and pulled out a 50W version of a prototype Maya I built some years back and some half populated AKSA55N+ boards.
5 Hours slaving over a hot iron and a 55N+ is reborn. I really do love that old amp. I don't care if it doesn't measure fantastically it just sounds "dare I say it" organic.
Listening to some Brewster Brothers while the Blackgates settle in.
Regards to Hugh and Aksaphiles everywhere.
I would love to chat with you.......
I have been trying to get in touch with you!
Could you please email me Ian?
Thank you for your post.......
More recently, I did a direct comparison between the 100N+ and my faithful Arcam AVR. Again, the 100N+ was the clear winner. Admittedly not quite a fair comparison since the Arcam was designed for seven channels of bells and whistles while the 100N+ has a much simpler task, plus the 100N+ was fed from a Benchmark DAC, but the difference was still more obvious than I was expecting.
I still have my 100N+. I've had a few offers, but none quite close enough.
Thank you for your post, and for your best wishes for my insanely good health!
I'm disappointed you are selling your AKSA 100N+, but I hope you get your sale!
Best DIY amp I ever had but I haven't heard Hugh's more recent creations.
Bugger the Blackgates and if your are talking about C4 (I think), I threw them away and used Nichicon KZ instead.
I thought the Lifeforce 55s were a step up from my 55N+s - and then the NAKSA 80s were again an improvement.
