In fact I'm using 2 of them running two amplifiers as dual monos
This SMPS does a very good job powering the AMP CAMP AMP.
I'm using the 24vd version and the power supply/amp couple plays music which sounds simply amazing.
I'm very pleased with the whole setup
The power supplies are hidden so they cannot be seen, sorry
My F6 is running since several month. It's a great amplifier, fine and dynamic. I used an Hiraga 30W power supply used (capacitor bank 1.2F) with double C power transformer made by Dissident Audio (DB226) .
I was very excited to receive my kit, beautiful chassis, extremely well thought out construction procedure. I hadn't built an electronics kit since I was 16 and a budding ham radio operator. In the old days, there weren't pc boards, everything was wire to wire, and tubes. With my amp camp, everything was presented so logically, and the pc board was labelled so clearly, that I didn't have much trepidation, soldering the resistors etc. into it. Double and triple checked my work, aided by fantastic on line photographs and narratives. The only concern I had was my soldering skills, worrying that I may have burned out a switch or transistor using too much heat. I crossed my fingers and plugged it in. Sounded wonderful, but only one channel worked. Both LED's lit up, and both sides got hot. I thought that maybe (per the trouble shooting suggestions in the instructions) my solder joints from the back panel to the pcb were faulty. I unsoldered the wires to the board and the back panel, unscrewed the board, and resoldered everything, making sure the underside of the board had shiny solder joints, and none of the ends of the wires might be sticking out and touching the chassis. Put everything back together, and started it up, same problem. I was pretty depressed at this time, as I had no confidence in any serious trouble shooting ability, ie. measuring voltages and resistances at particular points in the circuit. I then wondered if one of the wires in the RCA plugs from the cd player to the amp might be defective, and decided to reverse them at the amp. In a very fortuitous accident (thank you Gods of electricity), the tip of the RCA plug brushed against the outside of the jack, and voila the dead channel came to life. I plugged the plug into the jack, and found that if I pushed it in all the way, it didn't work, but if it was half out, or touching the outside of the jack it worked. I did this a few times, (reminiscent of the ape in 2001playing with the bone he finally figured out what to do with), and realized there had to be some kind of ground issue. I went back to that part of the assembly instructions, where it's very clear that the insulating rings on the jacks need to be installed in a certain way. I thought I had done that, but apparently I had not. Fixed it, and now I am happy as a clam. As I said earlier, almost idiot proof, but apparently the ingenuity of some idiots is unforseeable..... I thank you so much for providing this kit, and for being so conscientious in ensuring that the less gifted among us can be successful.
The components arrived quickly.
I mounted them on an ARC PH3 clone and from the first electrical tests they seem to work very well.
As soon as I finish the tests, I will update my comments.
For now, excellent components and excellent sales service.
PCBs do not get better than this
Very nice chassis for a very nice amp. Heatsinks stay about 40F above ambient, well within spec.
I found the amp camp amps fun and easy to build. It took a few hours to solder up the four boards and the a couple more to assemble everything into the two chassis. They look great and worked first time. Using them with a pair of Focal 1038’s and they sounds pretty nice for putting out so little power. Looking forward to building another Pass design someday.
This chassis makes the amp look like a pro job. Everything fit like it should. Plenty of hardware made it easy to assemble.
This parts kit was perfect. All parts were there. Amp was easy to assemble, and sounds great.
This is a great chassis for the Amp Camp Amp!
Very good sounding amp. Several years ago, I built the tu-8200 and still really enjoy it. I tube roll and changed the capacitors 4 times, finally settling on a combo of tin foil and aluminum foil caps from Jupiter, and boy did it really open up the sound. I've always wondered about the "magic" of the 300B tube and I thought I would like the tu-8600. It was a little harder to build only because the PCB is much bigger and has many more components. I took my time and tried not to hurry. Well, wouldn't you know it, I got 2 resistors mixed up and ended up with an amp that put out very little sound. Victor helped me and got it straightened out , it's now up and running. I've got about 25 hours on it now and It's starting to sound more balanced. It's got a certain sweet organic sound and vocals, violins and other acoustic instruments sound especially good. For upgraded caps I chose Jupiter copper foil. It's still all breaking in, but I'm enjoying it already. Everything I've played sounds more like music and less like an electronic machine reproducing music. I'm already thinking about building the "next" Elekit. LOL.
Received in time and i am pleased about the quality. Thanks... A+++
I have enjoyed one aca as stereo but after using it as monoblock I decide to get the second one
As 2 mono blocks they sound fantastic, amazingly transparent, better bass but yet very pleasing
Surpassing the level of these couple of class A will defiantly be very costly
Amazing design so simple with such amazing results
It was an easy and fun build with my Son. Powered up and played first time. Sounds lovely. I tried to power with a passive preamp. The ACA needs more volts in the line level input. Plan to use an active preamp. I’ll build a second one so I can play with them both in mono and bi wiring/amping.
Built and using to drive my 16ohm altec Valencia's horns. Perfection!!
Easy build and great diy community!
