After last years casualties with the Orchard Audio Amplifier project. I’ve decided to go for it again this year but with a much smarter and more powerful mouse trap.
The new StarKrimson Ultra Amplifier will do 500W into 4ohms. My build will do 350W into 4ohms because I’m reusing the Antek 57VAC Transformers from last year.
After running the StarKrimson two channel Amplifier on loan to the Club for the last two weeks. I’m smitten with the sound of these amplifier module. I’m even going to do most of the Surface Mount soldering myself except a few parts which require special soldering equipment that I don’t have access to.
The owner/designer/assembler Leo Ayzenshtat has been helping me sort out the various Power Supply Voltages required. You see, like the PS Audio Stellars, these Amplifiers with their GaN devices normally use a switching power supply but I went with all Analog
I figure about 6 months before it’s done.
