Default What to build after Bride of Zen?

Thank you so verry much mr. Nelson Pass! Thank you for sharing your knowledge!
And thanks to everyone at this wounderful forum.

I have now built the BOZ preamp.
Is this more to be had from this design or should I move on to another preamp project? (or should I just sell the house, car and my soul to afford some Pass Labs gear? )

I would like to suggest that some form of comparison between the diffrent DIY projects be posted in the wiki.

The market is down on housing right now, so I suggest the
balanced line stage (BOSOZ), which I think is quite a bit better
and is similar to the Aleph P.

FWIW, my BOZ preamp is the ONLY preamp of all that I have built (DOZ, Leach, Clepsidra etc) that has NO problems with hums/buzzes whatsoever...... Made me wonder. am I just a klutz or there is something about things designed by Mr Pass? Grounding scheme is the same for all..... Need more time to troubleshoot..... Only problem with the BOZ is that it's HOT........

If you mean listening impressions, there is an implication that you trust the hearing of the person writing the review. There are very few people whose hearing I trust.

There is only one way to find out for sure, how a circuit sounds!
Build it, and listen to it
Anyway, the suggestion on the BosoZ is a good one.

Trust me, the BOSOZ sounds better than the BOZ.
I built both. They are leagues apart. So far, I only used unbalanced inputs and outputs on the BOSOZ.

The amusing thing is that BOZ puts out nearly pure 2nd harmonic
and the BOSOZ puts out 3rd, although at lesser levels.

I have had the same experience with the BOSOZ -- clearly a great design.

Is the DOZ a preamp?
