BOSC™ - HiFi Monoblock Audio Amplifier
more_vert
About six years ago, I was looking for an audio system for my house. At that time, I was not able to find anything that delivered the performance I was looking for at the price that I wanted to pay. As an engineer, I thought: "Why can't I design my own?" Two years later, I had a DAC and two 25W amplifiers. Friends and family would comment about how great the music sounded. In 2017, I launched Orchard Audio with the hope of showing the world that excellent sound quality does not necessarily equate to spending many thousands of dollars. Now Orchard Audio is about to release its second product: the BOSC™ monoblock amplifier. It is the culmination of many years of research and engineering expertise, that started out as a DIY hobby. I hope that you enjoy the amplifiers I much as I have. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/orchardaudio/bosctm-hifi-monoblock-audio-amplifier?ref=6244zs

This looks like a great project. I'm looking forward to seeing it offered on Drop some day as well. (hint, hint) I have the PecanPi streamer from Orchard Audio now and have been delighted with its sound quality and functionality as a Roon output. Highly recommended! I currently own Wyred 4 Sound mAMP monoblocks. My only reservations in upgrading to BOSC is that I would miss the 12V trigger in/out, and I have some concern about the lower gain (~15 dB for BOSC vs. 30 dB from Wyred 4 Sound). If the specs meet your requirements, based on my experience with the PecanPi, the BOSC will be tough to beat.

I had a quick look at your kickstarter page and I think you are going to need more technical specifications or for your amplifiers to do something that sets them apart from others. Some justification for the price that isn't as objective. I like the idea and with the correct marketing I think it could work but I think to emerge with a new amplifier in an already very competitive market is going to need Grado Labs level reviews and reputation. I hope I dont come across as cynical or too critical. All the best and good luck

ahh, I see I thought that was peak because that is usually what it means. If you label that rms and then put the peak power near that as well it would help to clarify a lot.
