1. Are you referring that sonic experience with Legato+buffers (or without buffers) will be worse than with IVY-III I/V stage? Legato is more adequate with headphones listening?
2. What about building a single multichannel I/V stage or in BIII embeded, is this in future plans?
3. Could BIII be configured to voltage output?

Sorry if this has been asked, but how much current does the BIII board take (just that board, with it's sub-regulators), but without any IV stage, etc.

Thanks

Then Legato will work very well for you. If you plan (or even think it is possible you will plan) on driving headphones then get the version with the buffers.

IVY III would also work well here too, but it won't drive headphones SE as well.

Really its just going to come down to personal preference for you.

My question might've been missed on the last page; can four IVY III boards be powered by a single Placid HD BP?

You question was answered before you even wrote it down:

In any case, the IVY3 uses so much less power that you could get away with just 1 Placid HD + transformer

When configured for multichannel Buf III the Legato actually uses close to or even a little less current than the IVY-III

Yes that was a bit surprising for me, was your test with the altered resistor values (on both)? I'll have to change my document a bit ...
