Hoping to be taken seriously for once in his life

I posted this on an Oz forum but they all appear to be asleep down here so I thought I'd try Head-Fi. It's a sort of DaVinci Code mystery, electronics style:
I'm looking for more info on this little amp:
It's the same amp as is discussed here:
which is almost certainly based on the same circuit as Onkyo use in their upmarket integrateds and receivers (5532 op amp, BD139/140 transistors, 2200uf power caps), which is discussed here:
and favourably compared to a well-respected $800 dedicated HP amp. Why am I interested in this? Because I own an Onkyo 9555 integrated which uses this circuit and I'd like to know more about it--plus it would appear to be something of a real bargain if published impressions are any guide. It certainly sounds the business through the Audeze LCD-2, but I just wondered if anyone had bought one of the Ebay amps and if so what they thought. If not, maybe someone would like to invest $50 and let us all know.
Here's the circuit for the separate HP amp in the Onkyo 9555:
