    My new custom Gary Dodd amp using Hypex modules on a balanced power supply, both with separate switches; 200wpc 8ohm, 400wpc 4ohms and no noise. :cool:

    Man just goes to show can't judge an amp by it's appearance. That thing looks like a knock off adcom :smile:

    Thats because it is a repurposed Adcom chassis with a pair of these http://www.hypex.nl/product/ucd-amplifier-modules/ucd400st.html and a custom linear power supply.

    Wow, I love how they used to build gears like this one. a lot of shielding for sure!!!. it is a shame that many companies do not want to spend in "extra" metal or quality parts and have pride to show the inside of their gears. Most the time you will find a very nice amp, receiver etc, etc that look very nice from the outside, but as soon as you open it, you will find it's low quality build. Business, business, business...:rolleyes:

    One Class A Krell KSA-250. 140 pounds, 4.5kVA transformer, 250WPC @ 8 Ohms, stable to 0.5 ohm at 4,000WPC.

    There were three revisons of this amp. First build had vertical binding posts, second version sported horizontal binding posts and different soft start board with no separate low voltage power supply to activate the relays. This is the third revision with higher bias and some board changes.

    Once upon a time Krell would mod these into mono blocks.:eek: I know a fellow here that has a pair of these converted to mono blocks. I bow to him.:cheesygrin:

    Swiss made heavy platter Lenco L75 idler drive turntable, shown in typical stock hollow plinth and in modded heavy plinth form. Do this right and you get a table that can mount any arm and cartridge made. The plinth can be as wild as your imagination and budget for exotic woods. This one sports an automotive clear coat finish over layered Baltic birch with linear tracking air bearing arm. Some folks cut the OEM top plate, others leave it full size. Some leave the table stock and use the OEM arm.

    Aftermarket parts are available such as stainless bearings, stainless platters, stainless top plates (full and minimal) and custom idler wheels. The top plates decouple the motor from main bearing plate. Using plates allows for increased surface area of plinth as there is less cutting to clear the OEM stamped steel top pan. You can achieve belt drive quiet with direct drive speed stability. Highly dynamic and detailed sounding.

    Pics 2, 3, 4 and 11 are borrowed. 12 could be my next project.

    Seriously bad **** looking amp - the heat sinks look like all business. 140 lbs requires a foot in the middle of the bottom panel! :cool:

    One of the local shops got a Mark Levinson pre/pro and amp in on trade today. They had the amp open for cleaning and I snapped a quick blurry phone pic...

    Attachment not found.

    Thing was huge.

    Nicer than your average CDP (or CD-recorder, for that matter)! ;-)
