Peter,

Your response did not answer my question on any tweaking(s) required, eg power supply, etc...

Does that mean I don't need to with Gainclone?


Every system is different, some tweaking is necessary in variety parts of the equipment maybe it be CD player, DAC or speakers and also applicable to amplifier.

If you don't believe tweaking so then we may have agree to disagree.

You need to provide more information about your system, your amp and what you are expecting to accomplish. Otherwise how can I recommend anything?

I do believe in tweaking, but only in order to achieve certain goal.

Hi Peter,

Are those USB boards for the All-In-One DAC ready yet? Are you going to supply any extra parts as a kit?

Robert

The layout is completed but the boards are not fabricated yet. I will be supplying all the parts as well.

I think Peter is the king of tweakers, otherwise he would not have the sonics he's achieved. I have not been disapointed with any of his offerings be it GC or DAC.

The only tweaking I've done on ChipAmps is to try different resistor types (carbon vs metal), rail voltages, cap types and values, location of these caps (PS or next to the chip), transformer VA, PCB layout and snubbered supplys. The differences are only small but can be very beneficial to the final sonics which is a personal thing.

I've found it more important to get the partnering equipment right and getting the right combination, system matching, is hard. One system can sound quite ordinary but add a pre or change a speaker can yield brilliant results. So you are 100% right on tweaking the system as a whole as they do work as one.

I might be wrong, but I feel the looseness (not the best word but is all I can think of) of the sound from the GC is what makes it more musical than a lot of amps that are really tight.
