Congratulations!!

Seems that you have hit the spot.

I haven't been here for a while, since when did you abandon the inverted design?

Anyhow good work!!

I started experimenting with non-inverting topology in late October and there is no doubt in my mind that it sounds better with those amps. It is not only my opinion but everybody elses who tried the new amps.

I'm also eventually convinced that some input buffering may indeed be beneficial and the TVC stage is particularly a good match for a chip amp (although at the moment, my Patek amp sounds very good with a switching resistor attenuator at the input as well).

Just build it yourself. The pictures show pretty much the whole story

Peter,

The Audio Oasis web page needs to be updated to show the
new amps too. You don't want to loose precious hits.

i'll build a GC one day soon, but i doubt it'll be up to your quality
build standard
