On the modules, I'm waiting for a replacement to the 2SJ109 to be released
thanks for the info justin...looking forward to this.

I find that hard to believe, but I'll see (hear) for myself...

If it does drive K1000's well, let alone without clipping or distorting, the Pico will be a very special amp indeed.

Well, my standard ipod hp out will "drive" H2s (with TR2). It is audible but not quite powerful enough for my tastes. The H2 needs at least 10V p-p though. Justin confirmed what the Pico puts out and it's less than that. I'm not sure what the K1000 needs, anyone?

I've never seen an amp with less than 15V be able to keep the K1000's from clipping. And sounding good is another level altogether.

I should say, I don't know if Justin wants specs made public yet or if they are even finalised but the Pico does get very close to 10V p-p, p.

My Ruudistor RPX-33 only gives 10V p-p. It does a good job of the H2s but not great. Not good enough imo.

Of course other measures are probably more important than just V p-p.

Anyway, the Pico will do a great job with the ED9 I'm sure but obviously it's not meant to be a loudspeaker amplifier.

First Peek of a Pic of the Pico?

Have you all seen this over at Headwize:
http://headwize.com/ubb/newsshowpage.php?fnum=1&tid=72

It includes some information and this picture attached. It looks authentic especially in comparison to the earlier pictures of the circuit board.

Well it's finally good to be able to put a face with the name.

Wow great faceplate, classy!

yeah, it doesn't look too shabby.

I love the volume knob! Should be very easy to use even if it is tight. The knob on the Move can be trying since it is so tight and with its smooth surface can be difficult to turn.

It looks pretty good. Personally I like the move better, but I'm sure it'll be a fairly nice unit. Will probably top the Move with the addition of a 200$ USB DAC. Let's get one into skylab's hands ASAP so we can see how it stacks up.

What do you mean you like the move better? The looks of it?
Skylab probably already picked his favorite amps.

Whoa! That chassis exceeds my expectations! As nice as the AE-2 looks, the Pico looks even classier!
