Each one to his taste ) They are some very beautiful DIY case.

The GX285 is not ugly at all ))) or other option for example :




I got your point. It looks really nice.I'm looking something customised to make it more hygge-ish.
A bit of wood would make it even more nice, in my opinion :)

I built my own from parts from Ghent, Hypex, and, of course, Purifi. The Purifi Eigentact from VTV uses those same parts, and most nearly replicates the prototype amp Amir reviewed and gave his highest rating. It's also just about the cheapest. However, there seem to be some build issues. For one thing they appear to have placed the SMPS in the case ass-backwards with the heat shield facing the Eval 1 instead of the front of the amp case. This leads to longer wires, signal wiring that crosses over the mains wiring, in short, a very messy build.

My advice would be to buy the VTV anyway, turn the SMPS around, buy a new wiring kit from Ghent, and rewire with that kit which will give shorter, more direct signal paths, and create a safer, and better performing amp.
What was the name of the Amp which got the highest rating mentioned above ? I am in the process of finding/mating my new speakers with amps - perhaps i will explore this suggestion. thx

If you want this, you should definitely take a look at this one:

Here, attention was paid to the design and unnecessary plug connections, as with other designs, were avoided.

Or one could buy the VTV Purifi, ship it to @Rick Sykora and have him perform a few mods to improve these issues. I did and am very satisfied.

Never mind. I dont need the Link. I can lookup the VTV Purifi. However, there seem to be a number of different Purifi's. Are you referring to the Eigentakt Eval-1 ?

Yes. The one without the aftermarket buffer.

If I see that correctly, they also use only the EVAL boards and have not integrated the circuit in their own PCB design or customized, the way T+A do it, so that you can also switch the damping factor, ....
