It does. Part of the allure of the H10 was it's modest price and the ability to easily roll opamps. While the H20 is not expensive, it likely will not appeal to the same buyers. I also did not see that the LM49720 chips are socketed. But this is difficult for me to see from the one picture of the internals that is available. I still may be interested, but it will need to sound significantly better than the H10 to make that happen, and better than some of the other amps that I have around the same price,... or Massdrop will need to drop it and knock 40% off of the pricing that I see now. I impatiently await reviews.
