You'll miss them when remaining stocks are gone.

Yes it does, as long as the wiper is in contact with the carbon track

Then I will hoard them and in 20 years I will sell them as NOS parts to ensure my retainment pay!

We can patch everything up just in case, or we can throw as many components out as we can. If a pot becomes dodgy, noises will not be absorbed as with having a failsafe Rg. In a DIY case there is no face to lose, we replace the pot. I am aware of what Rg is for in B1. I can make final decisions after all else works as wishful thinking likes them to work. First thing is not to get offset in practice. If it will appear in a bad way, some capacitors will appear on the perfboard, and then the parts count and their quality will be overshadowed. I can patch it up as much as that Marv guy's face in Sin City then.

Anybody knows if the B1 preamp has enough juice to be a good headphone amp too?

Hi Udailey,

Have you finished your B1 and tried it with the chipamp? Your veredict?

I got involved in another project at home and have been working on that. My biggest issue is the enclosure. I dont know what I want it to look like yet. So, no B1 yet.
