Ease of build is very good - All the components, jacks, plugs, etc... connect to the PCB, there's no wires.

Generally I think the sound quality is fantastic! I've tried it with a few different headphones as well using it as a preamp, it sounds wonderful. Enough gain and drive for even hard-to-drive cans, and as a preamp the circuit is impressive, I personally am very impressed. A member was at my house a few weeks ago and had a chance to listen to the one in the photos of the guide, he was so taken with the sound he ordered one immediately upon release to the store.

Thanks Jim! Looks like a fun build, hopefully I can snag one when theyíre back in stock. Are there any issues with it being used as a preamp for the M2 or is it ok since the outputs are SS? I recal Mark mentioning an additional part needed if a tube preamp were to feed the M2.

It works wonderfully with the M2x, that’s the amp I used it with the most!

Seriously, you’ll love the combo.

I took a look at the schematic for this and it is really interesting. I like the heater load on the MOSFET outputs.

Thanks again Jim for the quick reply and info. Could you also give the approximate height of the unit with the tubes installed? I havenít seen any dimensions listed. Also, which chassis does the unit use? It looks like one from the Galaxy line in the DiyStore.

Thanks!

Put one 18FX6 to the test -- note that the left axis is logarithmic.
