Hi Schalk

Iv seen the amps that you have built for Harold Day and man i must say that those are serious pieces of equipment.
Fine workmanship at it best.....
Goes rather well with his Infinity IRS Beta speakers and those are huge speakers.
Great stuff your hands create Schalk :thumbs:

Hey thanks man! Really appreciate your feedback on Harold's system. I still have to swing by there one day when time allows and listen some.
Now if only I knew your real name, I could award you some VA Voyager miles for one day when you become interested enough to indulge  :pleasant:

A lot! Once you have one of Oom Schalk's products you will never want to do anything but try for the next tier of membership.   As for customer service, you will never find better.

Im lucky enough to have a pair of the Genesis Mono's, and all i can say is Perfection! Every type of music ive thrown at it it just throws right back at me with precision and emotion. The type of sound that makes you stick to your couch and the wife has to shout to get you out of the man cave ;) Well done Schalk, i can happily say these bad boys will stay with me for a very long time!
