|Please let us know when you get to see the OBH-21 SE's schematics and reveal your thoughts about it.
Someone will have to trace out the circuitry, since Creek hasn't been known to release schematics themselves. Since I won't be buying one of these amps, it won't be up to me to get schematics out into the world. I'm not even sure I'd want them to be released, because that leads to messes like the RA-1, where everyone freaks out at the cost of what amounts to a repackaged CMoy amp, forgetting the cost of the custom casing and all the costs involved in international distribution. "Why, I could build one of those for $20!" But in fact, they can't. They can only build a cheap knockoff for $20.
|I understand your opinion is quite authoritative on this subject.
I'm not offering an opinion yet, I'm just being skeptical about press releases. I simply know that there are several ways of running from a single-voltage power supply and still avoid capacitors in the signal path. The fact that this "advanced circuitry...split[s] the
power supply" is a big clue that they're probably using some form of rail splitter. It's not magic, but the press release would have you believe that it is.
