Ha! Probably so. I sent Mouser an email when I got my “half a fuse holder.” But I had to admit I got exactly what I ordered. So I ordered the other half along with some other odd pieces I still needed. It’s the select switch that’s been the toughest. Balanced circuits are not the easiest to source parts for. Maybe I just need to go with a relay, but that means more work on the front panel for LEDs and room for another PCB inside the chassis.

Hello, I am planning to get 2 pcs of the Amp Camp v1.6. Can I use my Oppo BDP-105 as the preamp and I am planning to use the XLR output? Otherwise can I use the Schiit Saga preamp? Thanks in advance

Hi, just wanted to check if I can use my Oppo BDP-105 as a preamp for this Amp Camp v1.6? I am planning to build to pcs so I guess the XLR output can be used? Otherwise can I use the Schiit Saga preamp? Thanks.

Can't speak from experience for the Oppo but you can find some thoughts of others out there on the interweb. Here's what my fingers turned up:
Oppo BDP105 as a pre amp - Media Servers & Source Units - StereoNET


According to Schiit website, the Saga has a gain of 1 whether you opt for tube function or not. All the intel I've gathered for selecting a pre- for the ACA is that gain helps. I've got a Schiit Freya running max gain possible (2.5) via its tube buffer and that works a treat for me (speakers are rated at ca. 92dB/W@1m).


If your speakers are really sensitive, using a passive pre- will be less of an issue. Depends on what you've got and what sort of room you're trying to fill with sound ... as far as I know ...

This would be a good Preamp for ACA:

Was this 'secret' you mentioned a few weeks ago the recently released B1 Buffer with Korg triode? (B1 with Korg Triode)

I'm really interested in some either objective or subjective pros/cons between the Whammy and the B1 Preamp for the ACA.

With a 50K pot, the B1 has a 16dB gain, the Whammy a 14dB so they are pretty similar in terms of matching. Other than the obvious "you get an additional heaphone amp", merely as a preamp, how would they compare in terms of audio quality?

Obviously the easy answer is: build both and test!. That is the most fun as well... alas, knowing a little bit beforehand would help a lot!

Thanks for all this, its so incredible to have stopped spending in off-the-shelf equipment to actually have so many options for the DIYer. Thanks!

Best regards,
Rafa.
