Dennis Had Inspire Amps – What to expect?

Recommended Posts

Inspired (no pun intended ;))  by answers in another thread (https://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/300b-amps-are-they-really-the-best.1154619/) , I came across Dennis Had's "Inspire" amps.
 
I'm particularly interested in the 300B version. Of course, ordering from Germany is not that easy (tax, customs, repairs, etc.).
 
Hence the question of who has had experience with the Dennis Had Inspire series? What to expect from it?

They are reasonably good... and Dennis builds them very quickly when you order from him.

These amps are not be all end all top of the food chain amps... but the are decent for the price and a good way to get our feet wet.

@rmlowzhas a Dennis Had amp. Post at least 5 times and you can private message him.

I just found one of his posts on this forum where he stated that your 300B is his favorite one! :) Which one do you have? :)

I made the 300B for Rich. Probably identical to the Had 300B. I don't know for a fact because I have never seen Dennis publish any of his schematics.

Thank you! Wow, very cool. Do you also sell yours?

I did sell it to Rich, but typically, I do not make and sell amps to anyone. He was an exception. I'm selfish. I like to have all my time for myself to build when I have the time to build. Money could be good, but for the way I like to build, I'm not interested in making money building and selling amps. I'll leave that to others.

I'll help someone build for a DIY project, but that's it.

Okay, I see. Thanks for answering! 

If you have basic mechanical skills you could always build a 300B amp yourself. After locating all the parts with shipping you will be looking at around $1,000USD just for parts/basic aluminum chassis.
