i bought this board from DAT, who got it from thehatedguy. other than the fact that it works flawlessly, thats all i know. i just finished up machining a custom one off heatsink/chassis for it today:
and, now that it is usable, it is also for sale. i have about $800 invested. that includes my time! this kind of work is not cheap. our shop rate is $85hr. i used my freelance rate of $30hr to come up with the price. the material alone was $200. not shown in the pics is the window-grade 1/4" thick polycarbonate (yes, bullet-proof glass LOL) bottom panel. it will be finished next weekend. soo, there you have it. i am in no hurry to sell. but, it is available. reason? there is another amp available on here right now, that i want to buy and do the same thing with!

thanks guys! i appreciate the comments. i dont know about art though LOL. its kinda plain for art, but i guess that depends on who is looking at it. i really like the plain, understated, very industrial look. all business. and it happens to be easy for me to pull off LOL. along with being plain, it is big, it is heavy! it sits at over 18lbs now, and there are still a couple parts to install. it is powerfull! holy crap! i am listening to it right now. this thing has balls. it is a BRAX! and it is one, of one. there will never be another one. i still dont know much about it. i managed to find a PDF of the manual and print it out. it took me about an hour of reading to be sure i had the cross cards installed right for full-range LOL. the gains are in the basement, and i can tell, my little satellites i am listening to could be char broiled at any second. it is quite powerfull. so far it ranks right up there with all but one amp i have run through here, and i have had some doosies! the one that would walk all over it, would walk all over just about any 2 channel from a power standpoint. that was an MBQuart QAA2500 (yes, just like the one that was just posted for sale here) that amp is just rediculous. but this BRAX is really cool. very high end. and very unique, now! it would make quite the conversation piece actually.
trade for mb quart qaa 1000 or qaa 4250? both like new.
i like the QAA amps alot. huge power, but also huge chassis. and they really arent worth much anymore. the last QAA i sold i had to practically give it away for less than $300!!! (check my statistics in my profile, you will find the thread). i may consider if you offered both amps. but no way for just one. i may have a trade deal brewing with another member already. i ordered the poly-carb for the bottom yesterday. but my vendor for it is painfully slow. combine that with the holiday this week, i sure hope it gets here by friday!
welp, a deal has been struck, and this bad boy will ship to his new owner ASAP after its completed. i am going to incorporate a BRAX placard into the top of the heatsink. and obviously finish the bottom panel (which the material hasnt shown up yet). but, since it is no longer available, i am going to lock this down, and i will update the build thread for this amp with pics once its finished!
