The heatsink fins on the side of the case and meters look very BK electronics and they used to have an OEM service so they could have made it for someone else… send them an email (with a photo/ screengrab) and ask them if they made it…. sales@bkelec.com

I definitely had a lyonforge amp that looked just like that in about 1997! It didn’t work so I ripped out the insides and jumped two Maplin 150w mosfets off the PSU!

This is normal for Lyon forge. Every one i have seen is either dead or dying. Very cheaply made inside,cheap components ,the PSU filter caps are usually allways leaking,or blown to bits.

Imagine the Amstrad of pro-audio,and it gives you an idea of the quality.

Be seeing you.

TBH, I don't think that they were as good as that LOL

To be fair i used to buy quite a few of terralec’s lyonforge modules, the 140w, 200w and 500w units mostly. They were really cheap ( i recall around £39 for the 140w, and £65 for the 200w, this would have been early/mid 1990’s) and built them into my own consoles or rack cases. Never ever had a single issue with any of them. I think they were very good value for money.
