The benefit is that the amps can all be warmed up, we don't need a big venue and if it is close the finalists can be A/B'd :) All we need is a dealer with 4 affordable sets of ICs, PCs and SCs to lend. I can bring a rack, the EERA, a pair of reference ICs and the switcher. I can also bring an 8 output power conditioner. Wala naman sigurong magdadala ng monoblocks to a 35k challenge :)


I can take care of lending 4 pcs of identical and affordable power cables (shameless plug :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: ) just say when ;)


Reserve one for me.

Bagay sa theme ng event - audiophile grade gear for less. Bestseller sa kabilang bakod 'to!


Sure bro. :)

My transmission line speaker entry is tuned, FINALLY :sweat: :) . It's a freestyle design. No box calculators here. I don't want to be constrained to a boxy design. Finishing na lang and I'm done with this one. The cost to build this one is way, way below the budget, but, took a lot of time and effort to tune it, the xo in particular. Still have a lot of headroom on my budget, so, these will be veneered (leftover from previous builds: ebony, teak, wenge crown or rosewood) and the tweeters in machined aluminum casings. These will look weird (retro/modern), as always, but, awesome. Better make the most out of the 30%.

I'll start working on another one next week. Much more simpler in design but bigger and louder. I just hope tukayo's SET amps can power them up. It'll have 15" woofers. Pasok pa rin sa budget as long as tukayo keeps the SET budget within the midrange. He'll make 2 amps also. Mix and match na lang kami when he's done as well.

The venue will play a big factor here. So, the more choices, the better the chances. :)


tingin ko, 2nd place nalang pinaglalabanan namin :)

The event pushed through, but the contest did not (push through).. It was more of a friendly shootout. So, lahat panalo :)

Thanks again to all who participated.
