  1. Trilogy H1 electrostatic amp

    There is certainly a lot of diodes on the center board but yeah, those heatsinks are tiny. They pretty much have to be 6N6pi's as nothing else would fit.
  2. Trilogy H1 electrostatic amp

    Well 50 years old but yeah... I kinda want to make a clone of this but better done and sell if for a lot less.
  3. Trilogy H1 electrostatic amp

    I agree, no HV regulation there and I found another pic taken at the same time: A few things spring to mind, see the red and black wires coming off the input board? Has to be the input wiring for the amplifier channels so they must just be on those small side boards. Also, they used the same twisted wire for the output wiring so the left channel has a bit more capacitance to drive. Pure engineering excellence here... I dug through the Russian tubes out there and the outputs sure look like 6N6pi and the inputs pretty much have to be 6N2pi which is the noval version of the 6SL7. Also the small PCB with seemingly few parts sure points to the SRX. This company also doesn't do SMD so that isn't an option to hide parts.
  4. Now that this amp has been released and we finally have an internal pic, it is time for a dedicated thread. Here is some info about the launch event: http://hifilounge.tumblr.com/post/162193518708/trilogy-h1-energiser-for-stax-earspeakers-launch So 5000UKP... and nothing else which is relevant at all. The usual HF retards claiming this was the second coming and all that BS but here are the internals...enjoy: Not the best quality but good enough to know what is going on. In before Jim and yup...this looks a lot like an SRX. Some Russian dual triodes for the input and those look a lot like 6N6pi's to me. Two plate resistors as well. So over all, a pretty horrible way to spend 5000UKP...
  5. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Sorry for your loss Kerry
  6. What Are You Building Today

    I went to the thrift store and there was nothing cool there until I saw this on a bottom shelf... They were asking 20$ with stickers that they were unsure if it worked so perfect for me. This is a PSU for Mackie mixing desks with a super long umbilical cable which I have removed. Heavy fucker too... at least 10kg. Healthy output current so the idea came into my head to use it as a bench supply should it work. After some cleaning it looked ok with no bad caps or any visible damage. Just look at that monster of a transformer. So I turned it on and well it worked so this was next: No current limiting here but hey, this one was cheap so who cares. Also I can test large class A amps with this beast.
  7. Stax SRM-T8000

    Clearly superior to the T2...
  8. Stax SRM-T8000

    They know about us and do care to some degree but are mostly annoyed by our comments...
  9. HC Bike/Cycling Thread

    Very good day...
  10. Stax SRM-T8000

    Nope, that was the 007's and the SR-Omega. The SR-009 is the overpriced hype product...
  11. Part Sourcing Assistance/Advice Thread

    Never seen that happen. Was it one of those cheapo hot air systems?
  12. Stax SRM-T8000

    I don't doubt that will be the case. Just see the old SR-207 replaced with the L300 at a higher cost...
  13. USB Audio tweaks

    Eneloops are cheap...
  14. Stax SRM-T8000

    With Stax, the price anywhere but in Japan will fluctuate for natural currency reasons so Stax prices never change. The SR-Omega was 180kYen in 1993 and only the 007Mk2 was increased to 192KYen in 2007. Hello zero inflation... As for the whole "flagship" business, it is just silly. I fully understand the whole issue of making something better can turn out to be really expensive but this stuff just isn't better.
  15. USB Audio tweaks

    There are a lot of misconceptions about batteries in audio so yeah, they have noise, power delivery issues etc. All of them really as the chemistry factor is so often overlooked in favor of the "free power" BS. Don't get me started on supercaps either...
