Once you have one built, and it doesn't have to be a Warpspeed, then listen. Let us know if you are able to tell the x amount of distortion there. Then please measure...

Down the road will do...

Are you David Lucas or are you related to him? You sound just like the snake oil salesman he was....

Default Balanced 2-IN/1-OUT

Found a way to do this and will be part of the model line-up called the V12.
______

It still is, as all Warpspeeds, possibly the shortest IN-OUT signal paths with the LDRs directly soldered on the IN-OUT connectors. No long wires, switches, or relays on the signal paths.

The Warpspeed will not create low-pass filters detrimental to the audio bandwidth with long, capacitive interconnects to the power amps as well as power amps with highish capacitance from its input stage.

Virtually infinite range of smooth log volume control response controlled by a 1080-deg turn precision pot. Will control low gain/sensitivity or high gain/sensitivity power amps.

Battery operated. With no music playing, it is dead quiet at any volume knob position even on high sensitivity 16-ohm headphones hanging directly off its Outputs.

Loading it from 16-ohms to Megaohms is not a problem. Goes about its job very well with standard headphones and it goes without saying low input impedance power amps as well.
