I would like to see what the guru's guru calls sketchy

OK I will post a pic when I get back to the bench. Also one of our listeners finds my avatar offensive on religious grounds so I will change it but that needs great care. Funny no one recognized the REALLY offensive one.

Why? Because it's simple and only requires a few parts to be matched, and by most accounts, has clean wide-open soundstage and resolution.
I've seen it. Used a similar but improved version for a passive RIAA phono preamp - decades ago. I like the newer designs -they are better, more refined performers and some are simple as well.

Cool! Did you try it in a shielded box or a screen room to see what's causing the 100mhz fuzz? Very interested! Ray

I disapprove ... the test gear is not suitably mounted on isolation feet, and then on an audiophile prescribed rack system!

How on earth can they be expected to measure the required high end credentials of the circuit ... ??!

No need to change it - anybody can use Hindu iconography without any fear of retribution, divine or earthly. Lord Shiva bears no ill-will to anybody for the use of his likeness, which in this case appears to be of early 20th century origin - the only possible objection could be on copyright grounds, which appears to be covered adequately by fair-use exceptions.

You never know -- a guy tried to mess with a Hindu shrine on the corner of a busy street and large hotel in Bangkok (a Buddist area) ..... he was beaten to death by the bystanders. None went to jail, there. And, this IS the Internet for all types, everywhere to see.

I know it isnt popular to be respectful of one another on this forum/site.... we regularly trash each other. BUT, beware or be aware ... .

Even though I know first hand that for instance cab drivers in Mumbai have little shrines with flashing LED's hanging from their mirrors of any number of Hindu gods I will change it because I would have anyway. BTW my Hindi friends at work don't know what the problem is.

Richard - strange things happen in India all the time that we can't relate to. Kevin Cosner was heavily sanctioned for giving a slight kiss to a Bollywood star in public.

BTW - no more religion or politics on this please.
