|Over 80 hours work to mill this 40 kilo block of aluminum. About 30 kilos of aluminum-chips (= waiste) was the result.||The "Artist impression" of the final result. One of the newest and fastest servers still had two days work on this picture. This picture is also "drawn" by TechGraphix.|
|Drilling a few horizontal holes and tap threads to mount some of the components.||The final result of this Dutch product: 50 kilogrammes top-technology.|
|Days of sanding and polishing to wipe out all the traces of machining. After that the frame was sandblasted to get a nice surfacestructure.||Another nice view. On the floor, in front of one of the Klipshorn-speakers. The wooden horns, as decoration, are also made by TechGraphix.|
|The necesary Lathe-machining. Here still a dull surface. To see the difference the decorative ring for the 300B-tube is polished.||Adjustments for the tubes reside just under the nameplate. The current can be read-off digitaly. With the switch, both tubes can be selected.|
|Before the frame was anodised all metal parts where checked to fit well. Really a nice view.||Thick silver wires are laid in the canals which are milled out of the teflon plate. After the wires where wrapped in teflontape they fitted exactly.|
A silversmith made this
central-earthpoint from 99,999% pure silver.
Later this is polished too, for pure optical reason.
|A few of the used PCB's: The Delay/Bias/meter PCB, the rectifiers for the auxiliary voltages and the voltage controlled currentsources.|
Made from a 10mm thick
brass plat. On the backside the cut-away for the meter and switch.
This nameplate is also made by TechGraphix.
|A view at the inside of the amplifier. Many costly components like Blackgate, Mundorf and Tantal resistors. All wiring is 99,999% silver......|
|A huge plate of 12mm thick teflon is machine to a real piece of art. Almost too beautifull to treat it with formaldehyde (to obtain a good bond with a special kit )||Under the T-bridge is a teflon-sheet as the WKZ-highvoltage- capacitors come very close to the bottomplate.|
|The plate fits exactly in the frame. All holes correspond perfect, Thé advantages of CAD-CAM.||With the bottomplate attached it is hardly visible. Here still in the wooden Assembly-Transport- and adjustment crate in which the amplifier can be placed upside-down .|
|First modification: The input is balanced now and all signalwiring to the first tube is gold with cotton and leather.||Second modification: Rewiring of the rectifiertube-socket for the Philips EY500 tube.|
|I have some tubes on stock||some are available||check my stock HERE||and ask for a price|
