The inputs are balanced but can be driven SE for both versions.

Details are coming.
One thing I'd like to point out, that $325ish number pabbi1 gave is all-inclusive.
You can stuff both the PS and amp boards with Mouser parts, and that Mouser order is under $200 including the iron.
All you need aside from that is the boards, suitable hookup wire, a socket compatible with your chosen headphones, and a box to stick it in. And a power cord for the filtered IEC inlet.
A determined cheap bastard could bring it in under $250.
That is just amazing!
This weekend we'll get to try O2 Mk1, Jade, HE60, SR-404LE, and Smegma Pro with wiatrob's. I'm assuming it's Pro bias, or I'll have to grab my SR-Lambda as well for normal bias.
Bill, do you want me to bring two balanced DAC's with me to RMAF? Also, how much more costly is one balanced volume pot vs having the two volume pots?
