I have two of Nelson Pass' "burning amp" amps for sale, one BA-1 and one BA-2. This ad is for the BA-1 amp.

These are nearly-complete prototype stereo amps that Nelson Pass donated to the Burning Amp festival in 2008. Some amps were auctioned off, others were given away as door prizes. Each amp consists of a chassis and heat sinks; speaker, input, and power connectors; power switch and fuse holder; 12 pairs of output devices matched and mounted and output boards; and PS caps, bridge rectifier and transformer. The only thing missing are the driver circuits. Boards are now available to complete these amps. Build and install the driver boards, wire it up, and off you go.

Read the main thread about the amps here. There are spinoff threads for single ended and push-pull designs, BA-1 and BA-2.

This ad is for amplifier number 18 on the list posted by Nelson. The dymo label serial numbers and original post-it notes are included!

Amp 18 is a single ended class A amp with twenty-four IRF240 mosfets. This is BA-1 which you can read about here.

Driver boards have recently been designed to complete these amps. Board info can be found in the above threads.

Make me an offer for one or both. Sorry about the bogus asking price in the ad listing: this service doesn't allow OBO pricing.

I figure the retail cost for the components in each amp at about $300-$400. The chassis are difficult to price. Suffice it to say that the metal alone would cost a bundle.

Each amp is very heavy. Local pickup/delivery in the San Francisco Bay area is preferred ... I'll ship if necessary ... suitable shipping boxes will have to be found.

Both amps have identical chassis. You can see the fronts and backs in the first photo, and a close-up of the amp in next photo. One cover has a very short but shiny scratch that penetrates the anodizing. Amp numbers can be seen on the post-it notes in the photos.
