That took longer than I thought... it's Peter's son's face on mine... figured I'd post one message with that, see if anyone caught it.

I would retaliate by photoshopping myself into Lisa's face, but I don't have a picture of her.



EDIT:
Ooooh, I didn't mean it like that, really.

For the Canadian wanting to try one of these amps, but not wanting to order from the US: A guy from the Canuck Audio Mark is selling one with adapter for $55 here.

Just thought I'd give a heads up.

2x6--

What do you think of this power supply? Small Power Supply

I know you recommended 2.1 amps, but at 2 amps this little power supply seems to be a bit smaller and is a bit less expensive as well.

Anyone ever try one of these?

Looks good samandnoah! From what I've read, sounds like folks who are using great big 12 Volt batteries with a trickle charger are pretty darn happy.

Thanks for the endorsement! I know folks are using batteries, but I keep imagining a car battery on my wife's desk, and that isn't going to fly. Am I misunderstanding?

What appealed about the power source I linked to is that it appears to be fairly small. She's not going to be happy with anything that is large, takes up space, can't be easily moved around on the desk, and has many parts to it.

Take care,
Rich

Hey!, Here's a thought:

Optima Batteries(and probably others as well)produce a battery(In Designer colors)that is sealed, so no outgassing occurs on charging(Important, as a neighbor lady was killed when a battery on her mobility cart exploded in her home during charging due to outgassing of the battery, accompanied by some errant spark from somewhere-so says the News-apparently she was unable to walk away from the house fire)

But perhaps a "Designer" "Safe" battery wouldn't offend!?

It may not work well in your application, but might give a heads-up for any other readers considering a similar set-up with batteries in the home.

We had one of our boat batteries go "poof", rupture a cell and splatter acid in a relatively confinned space when-oops-we failed to turn off the charger prior to disconnecting it from the battery!

We were younger then! And so was battery technology!!

Still....

My two amps arrived this morning. Ran with the M60's for a bit, and now the M40's. Have some Neil Young going and I am impressed....they're soo friggin' small, yet do a pretty good job right out of the box. It's quite hilarious. I'm using a 12V wall wart, but will get a regulated power supply (I don't want to mess around with a car battery and a trickle charger).

I'll be starting the mods soon enough. Fun!

did you run one for each channel? or just one?

I finally used them with M60s yesterday and the thing didn't hold up well with cds that had a lot going on. Simple acoustic singer songwriter stuff sounded great. I used it in battery mode. perhaps they were low as I was using it in a bedroom with Klipsch speakers.
