wow..this is such a fun amp...racked up another 6 hours today The details on the amp especially with my newly acquired source (DAC 2.6) is just breathtaking. i can't seem to turn it off and hit the sack..feel like spinning more and more CDs And the bass is just about perfect now thanks to the source. Had been listening with the Denon DVD-5000 till yesterday.

Especially as most sound cards can't generate a proper square wave over about 4khz.

This the socket you guys used?

Ridiculous, I think the price jumped from $3 range to $5 looks in the past few months. Still, that is the cheapest one I know of and it works perfectly for all Stax.

Very cool guys! Can't wait to hear this amp someday.
post #88 of 2969
Great work guys!
Looks like an amplifier with quite a potential, especially considering the parts cost.
