Looks like there are going to be a lot of mods attending.....
We will have to have a Moderator Dunking Booth- Hit the target and the mod falls into a tank of water!! No promises on this one!

Of course! I even bring the schematics (and take them back with me ).

Hi Jan,
If I really like it, can I build one for myself? This means getting the board layout and schematics with the understanding that they go no further.
I'll leave that until after I hear it and you can ponder this later. Just a possibility.

I'm sure SY will have his Heretical there, and Nelson might be able to provide the odd pre with balanced inputs.

No doubt about it, there will be lots of balanced gear, including Sy's Hot Rod Heretical Highest High Voltage pre.
We will have plenty of non balanced sources too. Check out just AR2's list!
How about the Punk Pre choky? does it take balanced inputs?

Sweet! This is going to be great...

Now if only I'd known earlier... alas, I recently finished disassembling a couple of old projects I was done with, including my version of John Swenson's BDT (Beam Deflection Tube) preamp. That one had a special sound to it... would have been fun to share.

But, I can probably bring along the prototype of my current-mirror UGS preamp. Hopefully I can make some more progress on that soon - it has been stalled for the past six weeks or so while I've been out of the country and otherwise far too busy. I've got to cobble together a proper control circuit for it's binary-stepped attenuator (right now I am doing manual bit-flipping, making use of the latching relays).

What else... I could bring along my Zaph L18's for a listen. I could also bring some test equipment, if it is needed... scope, diff amps, distortion analyzer, precision meters, tube tester, bench supplies, etc. Whatever I can fit in my car.

Really looking forward to this!
