Metro-Plex getting closer to production.

Post by VelvetGeorge » Tue Jan 13, 2015 1:22 pm

I tend to post most updates on the Metropoulos Facebook page, but will try to post here as well (if there is interest).

I have completed a full BOM, ordered prototype pc boards, sourced parts that no other amp uses, contacted Valve Queen for screened and tested tubes with a warranty, got rolling with a new cabinet supplier, tweaked the design until I can hardly see straight, tested the amp in band/gig context and had custom shipping boxes made. Now, for the love of all things Holy, I'm ready to build these amps!
It's been a solid year in the making. Longer if you count the concept and initial planning stages. Still a huge amount to do.

I saw some posts about speaker/cabinet tests you've done, but I was wondering you've decided on a model (maybe for the cabs you have planned).

George, Is it just your adjustable boost circuit on the PCB?
