sanyo has announced that the 2sc3675 will be end of life'd in december of 2010. So if you want the exact same sound

buy your parts now. Although there should still be tens of thousands of parts in stock from what i'm told.

KSC5042 is also a replacement, but has been end of life'd too.

A Replacement is a 2sc4686A part from toshiba which is still in active production and is a higher voltage part i'm

using in the new KGSSHV. (+/-500 volt power supplies, same as T2)

So i just got the email that the first chassis is done, and i should have it tomorrow.

So the first person that wants it, gets it, but due to CJ i won't be able to ship till

tuesday. Don't have the invoice yet, but they said something like $300 for finishing.

So its $987 plus about $300 plus shipping plus 3% paypal... (plus $160 for the board set if you don't have it yet)

8 more sets of tops and bottoms done, need to finish up the fronts and backs.

I'll hang on a while for my casework in the possibly forlorn hope that the exchange rate will improve a bit. $1.47 at the moment - up a cent on the bottom. Even though we aren't in the troubled Euro, we're still tainted by association. Wish I'd taken the plunge on a pair of omegas a couple of years ago when the dollar was at $2 to the UK pound.

Its still at work. Trunk full of various CJ stuff...

If i go in to work on monday (depends on amount of booze on fri,sat,sun)

i'll take it home. Otherwise tuesday. Each piece is wrapped so nice.

The heatsinks polished up the best. Actually the front and back polished up the

best. NO wait...

And besides, taking pictures of black stuff is a pain.

its definitely BLACK.

A bit like the black spaceship in Hitchhiker's Guide:

"It's the weird colour scheme that freaks me. Every time you try to operate one of these weird black controls, which are labeled in black on a black background, a small black light lights up black to let you know you've done it. Hey, what is this, some kind of galactic hyper-hearse?"

If there is a second run of boards, we can certainly change things at that time.

No way am i doing another 700 lbs of aluminum.

My recommendation would be to use a multiple of 100mm. Then at least you can slap a pair of heat sinks per side. I think shaving 12mm off the board size would be possible.

Here's the profile I'm getting a quote on now, I'd cut it to length myself

I'd be willing to handle the second run on heat sinks, but I cannot really commit to complete cases.

Its the flame thrower burned volcanic ash icelandic edition :D

Yes those were srx3 pro's. Probably close to 30 years old. Owned by mypasswordis

For those of you that have seen the sony 5400, the finish is absolutely identical to that.

And its a very deep anodize. Which means that the screws fit kind of tight the first time.

(waiting for a swt61 comment...)
