Ears in Austin

  1. barryt
    HI, I am looking for constructive auditioning and reviews of my new headphone amplifier now in its pre-production stage, preferably in or about Austin so we can meet and and I can learn more about what you hear.

    Replay here, thank you,

    Hello Buke9,

    Thank you for your interest. To answer the question let me offer that I have designed and am building an amplifier that employs neither global or sub-global stage feedback and operating in a Class-A regime. Gain is achieved employing a current-mode technology (the domain of transistor operation) rather than a voltage-mode topology (the domain of tube operation) resulting in neither a "tube' or "solid-state" sound but only transparency and 'speed'. It is an amazing headphone driving technology and I refer you to the Critiques on my website from auditioners who bought the prototypes and early pre-pre product unit.

    Yes, it costs a few bucks - they are expensive to make and hand build. I expect to release finished product before March as I am now resolving the final cosmetics, the 'guts' are production. There will be a few of these early pre-production units available after they have been used for early critiquing such as my request in the posting looking for auditioners.

    I also offer a most remarkable phone preamplifier (The Black Swan) and will soon have a DAC (The BlackDAC).

    Welcome to a celebration of American bootstrap entrepreneurism.

    Thank you.
