Thanks Russ! I am not ruling out the HD 600s, but if the dog got a hold of them (or anything more expensive!)...

I see the JVCs have 50mm diaphragms and are getting hard to find. Maybe I'll order a pair to hold me for now and then possibly upgrade when the puppy has outgrown the urge to chew (and the Ventus is running).

Cheers,

Frank

Oh-oh... I saw photos over on head-fi of two different driver units in this same model - one reportedly nice, one reportedly much less engaging. ...went for the sure thing and ordered a pair of HD600s instead. Will NEVER leave them in range of the canine! Thanks again!

Hi Russ and Brian:

I have been checking the TWA site for the availability of the Ventus kit. It has been out of stock for quite some time. When do you expect the Ventus kit to be back in stock?

Thanks!

I think we ran out of boards. Perhaps if there is enough interest I will update it and bring it back.

Russ; Have used it for years now as headphone amp driven by Opus DAC and still sounds great. But would love to use it as a preamp as well--(still miss the Kookaburra!)--so if you make Ventus available again, I would be interested.

If it helps, I can commit to two set of stereo kits. Thanks!

Would a little SMT scare anyone away?

If you are referring to working with surface mount parts then it's fine with me.

Having them in the circuit NO! Installing them ---anything over 4 pins with large pads YES!

Well the circuit would benefit from matched transistors, and the most cost effective solution for those is SMT - most likely SOT-363 which is 6 pins. But not very hard to solder.
