Buy NSMT-Lepai Amp

Our modified Lepai amplifier reviewed by Positive Feedback had a 2 amp power supply. Since the review we have been shipping the amplifiers with a 3 amp power supply. As of 4/15/2013, all amplifiers have a modification to reduce the noise floor in the amplifiers and to reduce noise from the pots. This mod is mostly important to people who use the tone controls. Our latest modifications (Ultimate mods) include an optional 3.5 amp power supply and optional 5-way binding posts.

We provide the amplifier with either the five-way binding posts or the banana connectors. If you plan to transport the amp regularly, we recommend the amp with banana plugs because the terminals are less prone to damage.

The cabinets are sealed with a non-toxic sealer and painted with several coats of "certified green" water based paint. Each coat is hand sanded before the other coat is applied. The cabinet is now health-friendly, eco-friendly and stunning --- worthy of a keepsake.

The Chorus gets a new stand

New Stand for the Chorus


Sensitivity: 96 dB

Positive polarity to preserve waveform

Time coherent, minimum phase design

Crossover-less woofer, 6 dB first order crossover to tweeter


We have designed a new stand for the Chorus that is more end-user friendly. In its basic configuration, with spikes attached, the tweeter of the chorus is 34 inches from the floor. The speaker, and therefore the tweeter, can be repositioned up to two inches higher.

The stands cost $295 per pair. They require the installation of 1/4 - 20 threaded inserts into  the sides of the Chorus (two per side). The Chorus can be easily retrofitted with inserts to accommodate the new stand.
