The special edition Hypno is geared up for easier hot rod current and has less tolerance to offset for audio fets matching. The blue Mez is the first reissue that has the T connected shorting to ground output relay tweak.

This looks like a great enclosure for the dcb1 buffer.

richard can also supply his cores in a similar enclosure to the antek. if you are considering it, then I would urge you to go for it, I have nothing but good words for the man.

do you mean that the CCS sets the current draw for the regulator circuit, or do you mean how to set the CCS current draw?

I've used Richard's trannies in a headphone amp I built, and I was very pleased with the quality and service. I'm just trying to decide if encapsulating the transformer is really worth the extra $20. You have any opinions?
