hi Zachsic

your configuration is identical to mine: ) Now you can use the heatsink as a shield against the toroids when grounded.

I finally added my AKSA photos.  I haven't taken any shots of the inside yet... but they'll be there eventually.
Here's my Gallery images.

Does the ON/OFF switch on the front come with the kit?  If it doesn't, what does it have to be rated for?  It seems like a nice heavy duty switch....I also need one for my tube preamp that i am building so I wouldn't mind knowing what the specs are on this one.

I'm using a 3-position switch made by Arco.  I can swap neutral for hot with this switch.  I bought it from Hugh.  I know it's availabe in the U.S... just can't remember where.

The power switch is not included in the kit, though.

Hi Josh,

This might work.

I ordered these for my AKSA 100 N monoblocks.
(No, I haven't installed these switches yet.

Advanced apologies for bad spelling (if any)--I've got a couple bottles of chianti in my system right now  :thankyou:

Benny,

Paul is right;  I have on/off/on switches suitable for this very application.  They cost $AUD8, about $US5.60, but please don't ask me to post a picture here, too much braindamage on a Sunday!

Cheers,

Hugh

Folks,

I've just added three good photos of an AKSA 100W N+ to the gallery, on page 28 here:

http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?action=gallery;area=browse;album=393

This is the same case as the audition amplifier presently winging its way around the US.  Very strong, nicely powder coated, front panel is 5mm thick aluminium, mushroom head Allen studs to secure the top panel, all laser cut holes/slots, LEDs are both High Efficiency blues.

It's possible to trace every wire in the first photo;  this should be helpful for anyone assembling a 100W AKSA.  Note the epoxy holding wires in place on the toroids and the power supply pcb.

Cheers,

Hugh

Hi Hugh,

Do you sell the finished front place like the one which is shown in the picture?

That is one of the best finished aksa's i have seen.

Very very nice. On looks alone you should sell buckets.  Very much worth the effort put into the CAD and CNC part of the project.

Like very much the logo.  Very classy. Major improvement on the old decal. Can I get a copy for my impending case upgrade? PLEASE!!!

Sean,

Thank you for your comments.  Off to the metal work man to have another 25 of these boxes made.  I like 'em too, very strong, quite elegant.

The logo was created by a retired Director of Art and Graphic design at BHP.  I think it is terrific too.  Jeff Rompala, who hails from Boise Idaho and is U4EA on this forum, burned the logo onto a number of small pieces of timber at a friend's laser installation.  Through my good friend DSK (Darren) here in Melbourne we have ordered a number laser-etched onto stainless steel, and this should be suitable for metal glueing onto any front panel.

Rod, yes, I have a few front panels;  all are power sanded aluminium, powder coated satin black.  I have just enough for about 10 boxes;  they are sold together.

Slowly, inch by inch, Aspen is becoming more professional and consumer oriented.  Production costs are always the issue, but to some extent this is circumvented by cunning design.

Cheers,

Hugh

Hi Hugh,

I will see if i can pony up and buy one of these in a couple of weeks.

I was thinking of putting the aksa into my old n.e.w. chassis but the chassis you sells with power coating will look pretty good imo.

Can i buy the power switch from you?  Will you have any logos left over?

regards
