    my friend of many years has quit his day job, and went full on with his own little manufacture, so if anyone's interested:

    I have his prototype g-ssl and i'm very happy with it, the guys from Hertz bought a pair of the 1176's and they are happy too

    Hey dude, do you know if it's possible to do different compression button combinations on this clone? The reason I haven't bought the Prime Analog clones is because you can't do 20+12, 20+4 etc. All buttons mode is too much sometimes and other times 20:1 isn't enough...

    EDIT: I'm just gonna send an email to your friend but get back to me if you happen to know, cheers!

    It's a bit dear for someone from across the world like me. I got a dual-1176 made up for less than that, and that's without shipping...

    I can't recall writing anywhere "cheap 1176 clones"

    I'm sure my friend has his reasons for pricing it the way he does, i'm sure if you write him up hill shed some light, or i'll just ask him tommorow.

    899EU - VAT = ~725
    725EU = ~950AU
    +100AU shipping = $AU 1050, si?

    I'd kill to know where you got a dual 1176 setup for less than a grand!

    I agree, it's quite a bit more expensive than the Prime (which I know sounds KILLER)....but I gotta admit this one looks really really good, wouldn't mind trying it.
    it's definitely not "too" expensive though, if it's using only the highest grade transformers etc it's a fair deal I think...after all the builder has to make a living, too.
    does your buddy send out "test units"?
    What trannies is he using?

    Yeah, no offense to your friend. I'm sure he makes great units. Just saying it's not that enticing a prospect to someone in my position. Sure he has his reasons.

    I'm sure he does, I believe he sold two units to Hertz after sending them a test unit first, I'll talk to him tommorow in person

    About the technical stuff, if you could just write him an e-mail, i'm sure hill give you all the specs

    Ok so I sent the dude an email. They're based on a Revision G - no input transformer. He uses Carnhill output transformers. Can anyone shed light on the quality of that? I'm not too clued up on it to be honest.

    EDIT: Oh and he said you can use ANY button combination - just like the real deal 1176. That puts it one level above the Prime version for me.

    Lastly, what's the deal with the sales tax for VAT registered businesses in the EU? Can the 23% be claimed back?

    true


    that again sets it 3 levels back though....
    but I'm sure you can order them with lundahl input trannies as well, just gonne be a bit more expensive then I guess.

    the Carnhills aren't bad at all


    @xFkx: thanks, would be cool!

    I might just wait until a decent Rev D comes up on the Sound On Sound for sale section then.

    I don't grasp the whole mechanisms behind it, but if you're a european vat payer, you can buy the unit without tax
