Over at 41Hz Audio they feature some of their customers completed projects. This one caught my eye, simply because of the simplicity of the design. Sébastien has used their Amp 1 kit and squeezed it into an aluminium project box that has been very nicely prepared.
A friend of his has drilled and painted it using Automotive spray paint. In the photograph the paint finish looks very good to me. Considering the project box only cost 17€, and an amp 1 kit can be had for 33€ this project is reasonably priced.
The Amp 1 kit is based on a Tripath 2024 and delivers Maximum continuous output of more than 2x100W (4 ohm) or 2x60W (8 ohm). 41Hz sell two variants, the Amp1B having an additional protection circuit.
I love the Tripath sound and I have heard good things from 41Hz owners. Sébastien has really shown how a unique and stylish amplifier can be built with a little cash and a lot of imagination. Colour wise I would like to see this case painted in a duck egg blue with a vintage Bakelite Volume knob… I think it has a certain cool-retro look to it.
