I want a Cmoy amp, and i need some help getting it!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I want a Cmoy amp with a tin casing, just for the sake of it :)

 

I found this seller on ebay who sells alot of different ones for a good price (  for me who is a swede ) But the problem is that i don´t know if its of reasonable quality. I don´t expect the best amp in the world but i want a good result when i am away traveling. 

 

Here is the amp in question http://www.ebay.com/itm/Micro-Cmoy-headphone-amp-Opamp-2227-Amplifier-Dragon-/251109667875?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item3a774d7423#ht_1982wt_1396

 

What you guys think of this? Are there better alternatives in the same price range and shipping?

 

Thanks in advance!

Try checking out the JDS labs BB cmoy.  Very mature design, great sounding and opamp rollable.  Plus you can customize it and have it built.  They should be able to ship to Europe as well, I believe.

 

The ebay one has no details about the design, power supply, socketed opamp, etc.  At the very least on the JDS amp you can see the total cost for the parts is over what the ebay guy is selling so there is probably a lot different.

Well you could always build one for about the same if not less than that using great parts (unless you want an OPA627 or something... in which case the op amp is nearly the cost of that amp). Then you know what you're getting... and you got to eat the mints too biggrin.gif

The way I see it, that's half the point of a CMoy nowadays. It's a very simple circuit that you can learn from and it's not the end of the world if you do screw it up. Though about all you can screw up if it's done correctly is frying the op amp with some ESD which is why I'm against things like an OPA627 anyway.

Thanx for the answers!

 

Well i ordered the 30 dollar cmoy some days ago and i am going to pick it up tomorrow..I don´t really need it i just thought it looks cool and it may bump the volume up on some heavy driven cans when i´m out traveling. The JDS cmoy looks good and i have heard great thing bout it, still a bit juicy in price for something that i don´t need :D I consider to modify this one in the future. It was cheap and i always want to fiddle with stuff.. Who knows it just might be a "GIANT KILLER" deadhorse.gif
