The Whammy headphone amp / preamp was kind of bright when it was fresh. 20 or 30 hours of continuous play when I wasn't around seemed to settle it in.

Get some time on it then see where it's at.

I was listening to mine for hours while at the computer yesterday. Noticed some splashy sibilance with some vocals, so I'll give it another listen today with a different recording, and give it some more hours of use as suggested.

Edit: Nah. It was the recording. Just went through a series of tracks with vocals, and some cymbal-heavy stuff. Sounds quite well balanced, which was my impression yesterday listening to mostly instrumental music. Forgot to mention I've been using headphones which bring the detail up close.

Thanks to all who stopped by and auditioned my two headphone amps (one tube, one solid state, both Class A). Pretty much everyone agreed that the amps had different character, and the split was about 50-50 as to the preferred amp. Some preferred the "punchiness" of the solid state, other preferred the "smooth tube sound". There will definitely be more headphone amps in the lineup next year, as I have about 4 more designs in the pipeline, and one design on paper waiting to be fleshed out. The first thing on my list, though, is to hook up with a source of decent output iron for my tube efforts - my current vendor doesn't cut it.

Mark that was you eh? Thanks for bringing. I did the Hab on the first go around, it was delicious. And the ghost on the 2nd. Smoky, hot and even more tasty. That one got me! But it was a good hurt lol.

Yes I read post #172 in this thread, and the follow on replies, from BAF attendees concerned that their food might be underspiced. When you're spending a lot of money to travel a long way, you want everything to be perfect. And I thought to myself, I can easily store a few unopened bottles in my fridge, and bring them with me when I drive up to SF for the meeting. So: I did it, and I was glad to do it, and given the chance, I'd do it again. Although someone eating their lunch on the pier did tell me, they really wish I had also brought a Carolina Reaper sauce. Sorry about that.

I'm not a fan of hot food, and I thought the Indian food was really quite delicious. Thanks again, Tom!

Several folks asked for the slides from my "Insights on Hybrid Amplifier Design" so here is a link: http://www.denisvilfort.com/BAF%2020...rt%20Audio.pdf

See you all next year

Denis, totally agree with the other comments. Your presentation was an excellent way to start the day. Filled in a lot of gaps for me. And your delivery was an excellent mix of high voltage with plenty of current.


Thanks.

Mark, I take full credit for Post # 172 and can vouch for the joy of JeffreyJuice - thoroughly recommended. Thank you for being so thoughtful. Not enough time in the day so, unfortunately I didn't get to say, "g'day". Maybe another BAF in the future.
