#AskewLabsGroupBuy initial specification

Posted on


Hello everyone!

As some of you may have seen on Facebook or Twitter, I am building a special portable CMoy amplifier for a group buy, based on the popular Carbon model (USB rechargeable). This will only be available via the AskewLabs shop and will be available worldwide. It will have a reduced price to make it cheaper than the usual USB rechargeable model and offer some rather nice modifications.




More details, pictures, number of units available and the final price will be available soon however here's a quick list of what it will be like:

- All internal signal carrying wires will be 99.9999% pure silver (not plated) instead of single core copper - silver solder will also be used throughout

- The AD8066 opamp will be soldered directly to the board to reduce any unwanted capacitances in the signal paths

- The feedback loop will have a low pass filter integrated into it to further improve on the performance of the AD8066

- The gain will be reduced from 11 to 5.7 - reducing noise further

- The input/output sockets will be upgraded to provide improved connections and jack fit


All these improvements are on top of an already impressive amplifier which has USB rechargeability, OSCON power supply capacitors, Wima film capacitors and superb sounding Tyco CBT series carbon resistors.


If you have any questions just let me know using the contact form and I will get back to you.


More to follow soon!
