It's gorgeous Stixx, but is the fingertip sonically necessary?

Nice build. Clean and tidy. Congratulations!

Tom,

the board consists of two simple layers of Medium Density Fibreboard finished
in Walnut Burl veneer (something my preferred carpenter dug out under heaps of sawdust in his basement... wasn't even expensive )

And thanks alot!

- Salas SSHV2 with LC prefilter
- DC heaters
- Lundahl LL1689 wired 18:1
- custom wound toroid mounted on top
- all the guts underneath

Absolutely dead silent (Pitch Black background... ).
Very nice

What headphones do you use?

I see you have reached your maturity as a amp builder, Stixx. Not much room for improvement now.
