    Default Project ONGAKU - A project too far....?

    Would it be possible to build a clone of the Ongaku monoblocks?

    A clone, yes, perfectly possible. The problem will be getting the exact output transformers.

    I've just had a look at the cost of silver for the transformers , it would cost A LOT!

    So you're going ahead then?


    (Surely copper wound equivalents should be available?)

    You could certainly copy the circuit without using the very highly priced items. Won't sound the same as the original though..

    Possibly, it would be my late 40th pressie.

    Probably not but I bet you could emulate 95% of what you hear from considerably less than they charge.

    Yes probably. A friend on another forum built an Ongaku clone.
