I'm want to get a Headroom Micro DAC, so I also figure I might as well get the amp that goes along with it. So, my lovely JMT amp is now up for sale. I had this built by JMT back in 2004 with these specs:

PIMETA amp board
PacTec CM5-125 black plastic enclosure
AD8610 op-amp (ground channel), AD8620 op-amps (gain channels)
Single BUF634 buffers
Elna Cerafine 470µF/25v PS caps
WIMA 6.8µF/50v reservoir caps
Vishay/Dale RN55D 1/8w resistors, hand matched to .01%
Alps Blue Velvet 50k ohm potentiometer
Neutrik locking 1/4" headphone jack
Gold plated RCA input jacks
Blue diffused power LED
Dual 9v battery clips/DC input jack
Elpac Wallwart

JMT recently retired building amps, but he was one of the most popular builders over the last few years. The amp has been a joy to listen to and I will be happy to pass it along to another Head-fi member. I paid a little more than $250 for the amp and wallwart. I asking for around the $200 mark, but reasonable offers will be considered. Pics to come later, thanks!

Thanks for the info, Nate! I wish I knew more about the specifics, but all I cared about was that it is a fine sounding amp

EDIT: Chesebert confirmed that they are dual stacked buffers.

Here is another picture I just took with a closer look at the pcb:

Wow, I was sure this would be sold by the weekend. I had to wait 6 weeks for this sucker to be built, and I scanned the Head-fi for sale forum for two weeks before that to see if a JMT amp came up so I wouldn't have to suffer the wait, lol. Alright, I guess I will drop the price to $189, including basic shipping to the CONUS.

Alright, $175 shipped to the CONUS is the lowest I'll go. Any lower and I would rather just keep it buy a tbaam to make this a wonderful office rig.
