Thought I should feedback on the sound too - build went without a hitch per pics I posted earlier. Only issue I had was that the PC would not recognize the unit but after fishki slapped me about the head a few times I realized how silly the problem was. The doodlebug has to be connected to the dac first and then plugged into the pc  - has been working without a problem for at least a week in my office. I think the edginess of the odac is more tolerable now with headphones....

 Alex has said to me that there will most likely be another 1 or 2 LAu's available , there are extra parts for most of the build, he just didn't want to sell the promise of an amp without being able to deliver. But , this does not prevent you looking for other options, I just wanted to make it clear that there might be a few LAUs available. 
  thanks, I know have that set of unused padauk from the original if you would like to tinker  ..dB
That is cool Guru - the 6AS7 can put out a lot of current.   Here is a project that is long overdue    This project has been a long time comming. I have had the head-band and turned cups for at least 5 years and the final vision for which drivers etc has changed many times. The motivation came when my son accicentally killed my iems which I use for travel and as I am not a fan of iems, I decided to explore options for travelling. I love my Yamaha YHD1's as they are...
That is very well done. I don't find the stock band uncomfortable but if you have to make your own, this is surely the way to do it..dB
Hybrids like the LG but not OTL type tube amps
The Liquid Glass cannot use either of those tubes, they are power pentodes and not dual triodes. There are however more than enough options to try various tubes. and if you want to extend the number of possible tubes, a simple loctal adapter opens up a slew of others to try.    ..dB

It required a dremel and a good deal of faith.
