Thanks for the reply, I too find direct into the F5 very good.

So, the buffer will be used with the phono stage only.

Just finished my symmetric B1.
Volume is controled by LDRs and it has three inputs and two outputs, one direct and one through the buffer.
Just want to thank everyone who helped so much here for this project.

Vgeorge,
Are you using the DCB1 just for power supply? It looks like the B1 portion of it is not fully populated. Maybe its just a pic before you finished. What is that little board on the right?

Mosfet are hidden (black on black) but they are in. Iguess he used 2 IR/Vishay and 2 Fairchild Resistors in the buffer stage are blue and difficult to be seen

P.S. Nice "luxury" knobs

I just haven' t implemented the relay part yet. It works fine without it, a little bit risky though.
The little board on the right for the input switch. The LDRs are located on top of it. They have a separate transformer and supply.

Not yet, as I still have to finish my speakers and doing renovation work on my house.
I am going to use on my other system in Athens, driving gainclones with my Sonus Faber Electa Amator speakers.
