Your graphic is too small to look at in any detail..
Plus your clone of the amplifier may raise IP and copyright issues, particularly if you are planning to sell this board to others.
I'll end by not saying what I really think of most xxx designs..

This one is even worse than you think. I really can't imagine who would want a clone. Maybe someone who's already enjoying a Matis or Marantz 7 clone

My feelings about the merit of this design aside, I do feel that cloning other people's designs and making them commercially available to others without permission is akin to theft.

Whether the design is Analogue or Digital, it still a type of theft if you copy and in so doing, Profit by selling the copies....

Just look at the hookie DVD trade going on....!

Would YOU like to design something, spend many hundreds of hours (dot to mention cash!) modding, altering, refining to a point your'e happy with, only to find some cheapscate copying and flogging out YOUR design as their own, or even worse, saying that it is a 'Clone' of yours, and you get nothing out of it all....?--I think NOT!

Obviously a lot of this stuff is prior art, but copying verbatim the circuit of someone's product, and by someone I mean a company or individual who might reasonably be expected to lose revenue in the process, is wrong if done for commercial gain and without permission. Obviously ATT could care less if people clone the old WE91 and other designs..


This is a particular issue for me as years ago I released a driver board upgrade for the Dyna MKIII which was if not unique certainly fairly original and a lot of my time, money and development effort went into it. Someone actually copied the board and sold it commercially while I was still in business. The only difference between this board and my own was the lack of my logo, and a couple of different branded parts. I sold about 20 pairs of the MKIII board, but I have no idea how many rip off boards exist.

Apparently my lame sarcasm was entirely wasted. Original poster's location is "World of ANALOG".

Nah! I got it right away. Those Asian countries have a long history of copying everything the rest of the world does. And usually in an inferior manner. This is not a shot at these particular boards, just a general statement.

My grand father used to work for G.E. many years ago when they were making tv transmitting equipment I'm talking in the 50 and 60.

He remimbers that when they were builbing a station one time they invited people from a Japanese company and they took a very strong interest to at the time a very new and state of the art amprex magnetic tape vtr.

Well to make a long story short a year later a mirror image magnetic tape vtr was being made in Japan I dont remimber if it was sony or fuji. The funny thing is Amprex gave them a vtr to take and basically free rane to do what they please.

Don't get me wrong I have nothing against Japan they are world leaders in technology it was just the time. After ww2 they were rebuilding the country and they had to allow them to do these thing to make the country self sufficient.
