I've been using (sparingly) a rather basic but nice little preamp I picked up last year. The last owner called it a Dynalo Gilmore Lite. I can find only a website or two regarding this information. Is there any other way I might find out a little more about this thing? It looks like it certsinly wasn't a mass production model.

then it's not a Gilmore Lite :)
 
here is the old page for the Gilmore Lite: http://www.headamp.com/home_amps/lite/index.htm
 
sadly, i had to stop building it. the amps are now a gold mine of expensive discontinued transistors.

It's most likely a clone then. The website I got to check was:
http://www.djgardner.com/headphone/gilmore/

I can't post any pics yet but it's a simple metal box with a Neutrik locking socket and a an Alps Volume pot on the front. On/off switch, left-right rcas, and power port on the back. The power supply is an Elac power systems wall wart.

Hey, ALSO, how do you like the TH900 through the GLite? I'm considering a pair of TH600s and I do want to change the amp...

dmort, I've since traded the Foster, so I can't reproduce the pairing to refresh my memory, but at the time, I found it a good match, within the restrictions of a closed phone.  I mostly listen through electrostats, so GLite is the only dynamic amp I own, and unless I make major changes in the future, the only one I plan to own.  It fits my needs, and I use it with the HD600s, which is one of only 2 dynamics I own.  But it's such a clean amp.  For a while I had a HE-6, and for that I needed something with more power, but the TH600 should pair well, I'm guessing.  Sorry I can't be much more help.

No worries, and I meant I don't want to change the amp - I very much like my Gilmore lite.

and we'll be bringing back the Gilmore Lite in a Limited Edition model soon! This new model features improvements to the circuit that we made for the GS-X mk2, higher quality parts throughout, more power, a much nicer volume control, 2 inputs, and an active pre-amp output that can be turned on/off. This in a classic but slightly beefier version of the original chassis which will be in all black with laser engraved panels. A custom volume knob is in progress

Super nice!
Any idea on the price?

Will the limited edition use the external regulated power supply (how GLite Special Edition had), or it will use the regular Elpac power supply?
Thanks.
