DIY Sony VFET Amplifier - Real VFET's etc


Recommended Posts

Hi,

On the DIY Audio store, there is a chance to purchase a Sony VFET amplifier kit for $499. Apparently, although this was announced on 2nd April 2021, and the thread is 1st April 2021, it is a true offer.

There is another forum where people have been relieved of £2k for a VFET amplifier that does not exist after 7+ years. As such, here is an opportunity to own one at 1/4 of the cost (including chassis and parts etc)

Regards.

Shadders.

The age old warning comes to mind ....if it’s too good to be true

I would buy in confidence from the diyaudio store. Nelson Pass himself is supplying the vfets.

DIY store is kosher. However, read the small print. There are limited numbers (enough for 180 amps) and it's effectively a lottery. When sales open up, you've got a short time to register interest, then the 'winners' will be chosen at random.

I'll have a go. 9.00pm Wednesday the door opens, incidentally. You can find the link. I won't point it out, as it's more competition :D

I wish you all the best of luck in getting one of these. Ive been waiting for a design like this to use the Sony SIT's I bought some years ago "just in case".  Ive got most of the bits to I can build my own so I wont be competition. The chassis looks very nice though, better than mine

Has anyone done this? I thought about it a lot but ultimately it was in danger of becoming another thing sitting on a back burner! And I was asleep at the time!

In my usual manner, I forgot and when I remembered, it was too late. A shame, but then probably just as well really. Like you, there are already way too many things unfinished and I really don't need yet another.

I managed to get in, now just waiting for the results of the lottery to be announced.

I haven’t built anything for years but if I do manage to score one I’ll put the build up here, fingers crossed.

Winners announced today, it’s not me :-( but I’m automatically in the next lottery in a few months time for the next batch.
