A few amps at this size wont make any difference

Use of aluminium etc and shipping of various components around the world is much worse
But still very small in the big picture

One person taking a single flight trip might use the same energy as all of us use in a whole year
One person taking frequent flight trips may in a single year use as much a you use in a lifetime
Or try looking at how much your flat screen TV consume
And how many people have power consuming flat screens

If you look at the amount of components involved, possible recycling etc Im sure you will get a completely different outcome

Not at all, but there is no need to be extravagant.
I am shure Teabag built it as a training exercise, not to really use it.

The planet shall endure...

I'm surprised Pass Labs hasn't been shut down by the state of California where they've just banned energy wasting televisions.

I saw that flick on tuesday...Quite a rockus. Besides, where am I going to come up with a billion euros?

I've finished up and started working on some new projects with my time off lately. My original headamp variation doesn't stay stable, so I tried this, just to get an idea. As much as I listen, I dont think either will cause too much global warming, but glad you fellas are concerned.

Throwing in a question..
I am using this DAC Experience with this DIY DAC ?connected to my F5,but when i take de signal from the LL1517 i get oschillation,workes fine from the opampoutput.
But The F5 gets realy hot when taking it from the LL1517,it sounds fine thow.
I´ve been trying to lower the bandwith on the F5 with a 10pf or 20pf cap paralell to the input of F5,I runs a little cooler but not enough as without the DAC connected,how big cap can I add without lowering the bandwith to much?Or any other suggestions?

Would anyone have any input on why I would have 500mV pushing out my outputs on one of my channels?
