    My brother-in-law just built one of these and really likes it. I haven’t heard it yet.

    I’d love to hear your opinion. It could be a fun experience for my Avantgarde.

    OK Joe. I'll get him to bring it down next time he visits and slip it in my system.

    I built the monoblock pair from the first round. I have them powering a 3 inch FR bookshelf from Tekton. (an older offering that I have not seen available of late)
    Wonderful little amplifiers, running on a switching PSU.

    Digital : Bricasti M12, Oppo 203
    Analog : Technics SL1200G, DIY K&K Audio Maxxed Phono Amp

    Headphone : BHSE + Voce

    I built one last Monday, took 5 hours taking my time, great little amp, pre is B1 Korg and it drives my Castle Howard S1 speakers with ease.
    They are 92dB for 1w1m though.

    Here are some non-studio quality pics of my little work office setup, which I mainly use for headphones (Focal Utopia) The headphones, and audio gear are directly to the right of the right speaker. I am particularly looking forward to Christmas music in my office while I wrap the kids presents, which is a yearly thing.
