an update on the amp build

Hi Ray,
Talked to Jordon yesterday. He is just waiting on transformers now. It sounds like the Carverfest amps parts and the first production run of 10 units will ship at about the same time in mid Sept..

After the Carverfest parts ship, another production run of 275 will follow. I have 3 of the first batch on order for JCS due in mid Sept..

Jordon said some people came down from Vancouver and had a demo of the 275 running the ALS.. He said the 275 sounded so wonderful that they were amazed and placed a pre order.

Very exciting product. He says it sounds almost exactly like a pair of 350 mono blocks in character and musical performance.He also mentioned the circuit design of the 275 being very similar to the 350 design. Basically dual mono on a single chassis. I’ll ask about the reason for not being bridgeable.

He also mentioned that the 275 does a great job powering the ALS 1/2 Stack prototype speakers, although the 1/2 Stack is capable of considerably higher input power.


I know nothing other than what you see. The amp sounds promising

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

I think many of us are feeling the same thing! I heard the prototype at Capital Audio Fest last fall! I think everyone will be pleased to have one! I am very grateful that Bob is being generous to our group ! He is truly one of a kind! We are all lucky to know him as a friend.
