The very first amp I ever built from scratch was the Low Tim by Dr. Leach in the Feb issue of Audio magazine, I do not remember the year...

I will miss his writings, and that website was a legend. A great, gentle, and inspired man, clearly gave his life to teaching others, humbly, and with passion and dignity.
