Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today


#4054

It is proper Class A Pete, and you’re right, it gets rather warm rather quickly.


#4055

In which case, needs way more space around it.


#4056

What is it? Only viewing on a phone & all I can see is NEW.


#4057

On it Pete, will be in free space shortly :slight_smile:


#4058

It’s a Nirvana Electronic Works A60 Guy, 60W / Ch pure Class A.

Apparently a dual 30W Nelson Pass design.


#4059

What speakers are you using with it?


#4060

At the moment, my Heco Celan 300’s, which do sound pretty good, I must say.


#4061

Not surprised. Good on tone.


#4062

VERY good tbh and bass is pretty fast and tight too.


#4063

If it sounds great now, just imagine how good it could be if you put some Musical Bliss sound improvers in & on it…


#4064

Don’t thinkI could take any more Nirvana, tbh.


#4065

Oh yes you can

Get yourself over to the foo corner


#4066

It says 160w maximum on the back on the photos on line, at 60w per channel that’s not very class A. Its probably class A to 10-20w depending on the design. I don’t think these were a Pass design either.

Its probably fine in the shelf :smiley:

Neat looking thing though.

They seem to be a bit of a rare beast, with not a lot of info online. Of what there is, about 50% say NP design and all say pure Class A. :confused:

The heat it generates, within about 15 minutes of switch on, would suggest that it is fairly heavily Class A biased.

It certainly needs to be in free space, too.


#4069

There is a lot of marketing gibberish about class A. The 30w amps I build are class A to 30w, and are the efficient later Aleph design, they pull over 180w at idle and probably have larger heat sinks than that amp. And I’d run that in a shelf (I do) because meh, what is 60-70 degrees to decent electronics :wink:


#4070

You can, I promise. I highly recommend them, and put one of the small improvers in each ear when listening to Naim systems. It’s amazing how much the whole experience improves.

I run my amps between Crikey and Bloody hot :slight_smile:


#4072

About half the lifetime of 50-60 degrees.


#4073

Shush you.
