    I just never got around to using the amp. I know something is only worth what someone is willing to pay, but what would be a fair price if I were to sell it?

    Thanks.

    Yeah I have tinnitus too, the only thing that makes it go away is loud music. I saw Jr on another avenue as recently as last week, still selling his old SS parts. I have a strange question, but if you were responsible for the building and designing of those amps, why aren't you putting out your own amps for audiophiles? I know about china and major corporations, but I would think a market could exist..

    Re: old school Soundstream amps.

    rickmandick,
    interesting question. The company i owned that designede and built the Soundstreeam amps was oroganally a professional audio companynamed Stewart Elecrronics. We did products for other companies including Soundstream. Since I am an audiophile and like loud music, Soundstream was a natural. I had been screwing around with car stereo since the 60's. Since Stewart I have started 2 companies but had money problems both times. I also worked for other companies. now that I'm back in sacto. I figured I will do Soundstream repairs and eventually figured once the economy turns around or get funding, I will start a new car audio company. I want to do it but money is my current problem. What do you think of the name: ACELABS, or something like that, my long term goal is to make updated amplifiers of the quality I did only with new technology. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    ace956

    Scott, I wish I could help you but I'm not that up on what that would be worth. Tha best I can offer would be to try and find people on here that might know its value or try a internet search. sorry.

    Re: old school Soundstream amps.

    Hello momofx,
    I really don't know that much about that Soundstream amp. All I can do is compare them to the older Soundstream amps that I designed. I looked at the specs for that amp. First thing I noticed is there is no spec for frequency response. Class D amps use the speaker as part of the output filter, this can scew the response of the amp. The S/N is about -85dB, where the old amps were typically about -103dB, this is signifigant, and the distortion is 1% which is ten times the old amps at .1%. Without testing the DTR1.3400D-D this is the best I can do.

    Here is a shot of my Rubicon 1000-2. Can you tell me what the writing on the board means?

    Does it mean it was Refurb'd or does every amp get tested before packaged?

    Icon6 Re: old school Soundstream amps.

    Hi all.
    So about 4 years ago Lance sent me just about all of his SoundStream parts. HUGE BOX! So if someone is in a desperate need for hard to find parts for the reference series, let me know so I can see if I can help.
    About 10 years ago I purchased a broke Rubicon 1002, can't remember what I fixed on it but holy crap that thing had some power! I did sell it though and now wish I hadn't.
    OK, I just purchase a RUB 1000-2 and I already know that all the electrolytic caps will be changed and I will upgrade the mosfets. The only thing I'm having a hard time finding is the 2SC3281 and 2SA1302 transistors in the final output. There seems to be a lot of fakes from china. I hope it does not need any but if it does, what would be a good source or a decent equivalent for the output pairs? Unless ACE956, you have them? just in-case I need them. I will be getting the amp next week.
    OK, after some poking around, I guess one could use 2SC5200 and 2SA1943. The spec sheets look the same.
    Mouser has them....
    Thanks All
