Hi..
Yes I've received maybe 15 pages by mail, they are translated from Chinese, but I don't mind a little detective work

Most of the parts easy to get hold of. Less common parts are the style of phono socket used on the input board as well as the heatsinks for the voltage regulators. On the PSU board I had to get the Songle relay and the barrier blocks from China via ebay. This is from the UK, may be easier from elsewhere.

I got schematics, BOM, and pcb layouts for each board plus setup instructions and latest parts revisions. Also got drilling templates for the heatsink and back panel for the input board. As Amplitude says the boards are thick and well made. You don't get an exact Bryston clone - very close but not exact. Some small plusses and some small minuses. I must admit too that I haven't stuck exactly to the BOM. For instance I used 100uF bipolars for C4 (input) and C5 (feedback), instead of 68uF elcos, in the interests of distortion reduction. This highlights one of the small differences between the original and the clone - the Bryston has a dc coupled input whereas the clone has and ac coupled input via C4.

Wow lotsa parts used in that !
Certainly belies the Notion of a Wire with gain.
Beyond that is it any better/cheaper than a Used Bryston (which comes with pretty well a lifetime warranty ) IF you like the bryston sound.

Yeh much cheaper than a used Bryston - in the UK at least. Don't build stuff to save money though, just like to try new things. If I wanted to get a really good amp for the least money I'd just build a Self blameless and stop at that.
