Buyer selects amp from three options, purchases necessary parts from only two vendors (Hypex in The Netherlands and SiliconRay in HongKong), and instructs vendors to ship parts to builder James Romeyn in Utah. Fee to thoroughly inspect parts immediately upon arrival (promptly return parts and/or file damage claim), build amp, play music through Dynaudio Esotec 2-way (clone of French ASA Pro Monitor with many refinements), safely pack in new double carton, and ship insured worldwide is $155 for three models currently offered (3-ch amp higher cost if/when offered). Builder fully refunds $155 Build Fee if he does not ship amp within two days after all proper parts arrive.
