Here are some unique features of CRISPIN:
  • The Maraschino Modules inside the CRISPIN unit are plugged into sockets. This means that in the future you will be able to upgrade your amplifier with the next generation technology instead of having to buy a whole new amplifier. With other manufacturers you would be forced to buy a whole new unit.
  • CRISPIN has an integrated linear power supply (toroid power transformer). This eliminates the need for having to buy a separate power supply.
  • All of CRIPIN’s connectors are mounted and soldered directly to the motherboard. This eliminates the need for wire harnesses.
  • Using a 4-layer motherboard allows CRISPIN to have all critical signals routed on inner layers and be shielded (protected) by large ground planes on the outer layers.

How do you like them apples?

Currently CRISPIN is available at a discount though our Kickstarter campaign - http://kck.st/2jE4e3C

Where stands this amplifier in relation to Maraschino/Megaschino/Classic Cherry Soundwise? Analogue? The design refers to a more professional product and less high end by the looks of it on the outside.

Are those RCA jacks I see?  Leading to a DAC module?  Oh the Horror!!

Seriously, I wish everyone involved all the best on this endeavor.

This unit has both RCA and XLR inputs. Either RCA or XLR can be used. I am not sure what you mean by DAC module. This amplifier is a stand alone unit.

CRISPIN is high-end without question.  It offers the same fast, clean, high bandwidth sound as Maraschino.  Differences include built-in RCA inputs, signaling sandwiched between ground planes, linear toroid power supply, and a built-like-a-tank steel chassis.

I allready got my stuff but I'm slowly getting IT! If this one is a success... The next thing would be a unit with the DAC DAC inside. That would be an awesome unit.

CONGRATULATIONS to Orchard Audio for their successful certification of the CRISPIN Amplifier, a Maraschino based product.  Maraschino is an Amplifier Technology from the makers of Cherry Amplifier (R) audio equipment.  It is the driving force behind the Maraschino Cherry product line.  This technology has been made accessible to other firms and proper implementation in the end product is assured through a certification program.  Tests include ears-on long-term listening, always-on operation, intermittent use, demanding passage handling, rigorous bench testing (all specifications), low level listening, thermal analysis, and ability to drive various speaker systems.
