    Sundown 2012 Amp Line... first bit of information!

    Just got my first pictures of the first completed prototype of the new SAZ-1500D v.3 model... so the cat is out of the bag on this one! As the model that got us started it is only appropriate that it is the first model to be shown in the 2012 trim!

    Newly tooled 2012 casing -- you can still tell it IS a Sundown amp but it is a refresher and also narrower. The FETs are mounted at a 45 degree angle to shrink the width AND avoid spring clips (which I've never liked). So we are getting the best of both worlds on that.


    * Fully custom tooled boards for all of our new 2012 models complete with fans. More photos to come as I get the other models done! Yes... you do see 16 power supply FETs in this amp along with four transformers.


    * We will use the fancier RCA plugs for production.



    So this has many things I've been asked for (smaller size and fan) and MANY improvements to design that were really just personal goals of mine. The entire line is stable to 19v as well.

    Power testing to come when it arrives... the SAX-125.4 model should be showing up within a week or so as well. Pictures of the completed prototype coming soon too!

    The 2012 line-up is going to look like so :

    SAX-150.2 (last one we will do)
    SAX-125.4
    SAZ-1200D (now a full SAZ model)
    SAZ-1500D v.3
    SAZ-2500D v.2
    SAZ-3500D v.2

    All of them will feature the new style casing and all new board designs.
