Default Hybrid X line amp

Hello all,
I came across an interesting looking line amp on the Welbourne Labs web site (http://www.welbornelabs.com/hyb.htm)
It seems like an interesting build, what do you guys think of it?
Is it worth the money or should I just build the Aikido?

Any thoughs are appreciated.


Thanks
Lawrence

With these small heatsinks and integrated regulators it looks like headphone amp

Has anyone tried the Hybrid X line amp?

What do you guys think of Erno Borbely's stuff? Do they sound good. His stuff is usually very expensive so I shy away from his stuuf.

Any thoughts?

This is sort of a "Should I buy a Civic or lease a Hummer?" question. It's not easy to compare option A and B. Do whatever turns your crank.

Don't think I've ever read anything bad about EB's "stuff", so you shouldn't have doubts that it works as advertised.

If you haven't already done so, check out the original Glass Audio article. Other interesting reading can be found at Mr. Borbely's web site - click on "Special Articles".
