Default JLH Chiarra or Hifisonix Class A buffer?

Hi All

I am planning on building a headphone amp and I am tending towards the JLH Chiarra design as it seems quite elegant. Any Chiarra users here? what are your opinions on this circuit?

Problem is I also have my eye also on the Hifisonix Universal Class A Buffer circuit as a head amp as this looks pretty good too...


Anybody here tried the Hifisonix buffer?

Your opinions and experiences will be much appreciated!
