Default Bad earthing- again!

Hi AJT and others. I have been guilty in the past of not "doing it right" in the past so far as earthing an amp goes. Check out the rather dodgy "earth lifter" arrangement in an early pre Quasimodo amp I built some time back- for shame!
I have since repented and now do a proper job of it...
But as this post is about showing solid state builds, I thought that I would throw in this rather crazy effort from the past!
Check it out; no circuit boards, no tag strips, no protection zeners on the output stage mosfets, no output inductor, so source resistor on the p-channel mosfet, no screws holding the output devices to the heat-sink, no protection circuitry and, some would say- no brains involved!
The funny thing is that it sounded very good indeed, and just slightly better than an early version of Hugh Dean's NAKSA 70 that I had just built up.
Hugh is a very generous guy and has only just broken the habit of giving me free samples of his latest pcb creations!
The gent who owns that amp now uses it on his Yamaha NS 1,000's, and apparently it does an excellent job of it! And, after several years of use, it still works a treat- who wooda thunk it!

Default ne5532 pre-stage

Got my 5532's today and assembled and measured my pre-stage.
First image a reference of the sound-card and the second one channel of the pre-stage. There is some 5 times gain in it.
