Compared to a Starving Student, yes, but even a Starving Student is too expensive when compared to a CMoy. The best that you can hope for is that there's a proportionate increase in performance at each level. I'll leave that judgment to others, though.

Yeah, I know but my budget is about 100€ and I can't buy a complete kit
I'd like build the Starving Student buying only the necessary, it's possible?
In any case I must pay the duty from US.
Solutions?

There are almost none here mate :S I'm with the exact same problem here. Import taxes and shipping is just killing me, so I end up spending close to double the US price for a project. I think there are such projects around, but it might take some searching. Maybe the YAHA, it's not a highend build at all but it's a great compact, fun and learning scheme to build. I'm planning on doing that myself one day soon.

talk about thread revival lol

 

if you really want to build a starving student, refer to Pierre's custom build. he hasn't been active on the forums in a while but he's from France and may be able to help source parts.

This is common knowledge in the Starving Student support thread, but I guess it should be posted here because I keep getting enquiries:

 

The SSMH PCB is no longer available.

 

There are not enough stocks left of the 19J6 to support a full manufacturing run of PCBs.  However, the 12AU7 variation of the SSMH is documented here:

and many have built this version point-to-point with great success.smily_headphones1.gif
