Default know of kit that is clone of BYOB or similar?

heard a BYOB recently that sounded pretty darn good.

However, $1350 us for a chip on spruce board is pretty steep, IMO.

The Altmann BYOB amplifier

Granted, it sounds really good, but it seems that this shouldn't be rocket science or some sort of "marvelous" chip.

These have been out a good while, anybody figure out what chip is being is being used?

Any kit out there that is equivalent and uses 12 V battery supply?

or maybe even something better?

Thanks

Ken

I would also be interested to know the "secret recipe" behind this top dollar board. Anyone? :-)

Expensive, yes, but it is hand selected spruce, after all............

I considered that.

However, hand selected spruce often depreciates more rapidly some other species.

All kidding aside, I tend to think a good bit of the benefit comes from the power supply being a battery. I

I heard one of these a number of years ago when they were much cheaper. Memory dims over the time, but I remember it was so very good that it was surprising.

Would make a killer project if someone has a similar or better chip
