I have lots of projects in the wings and parts to order so I'm selling my main listening amp for the last 4 months.



This is the very popular multi-loop amp running an AD823 into a pair of EL2001 buffers. This is the same circuit as the so-called "META42" amp - i just built it on perfboard instead of tangent's PCB. Cerafine filter/resevoir caps bypasses with Wima's and big honkin Wima input caps. I generally despise input caps but these sound pretty good. It runs off a Radio Shack 12V wall wart.



This amp, despite being naked to the world, is completely silent and sounds very very good. It drives my Grados with reckless abandon...

Price is $110 (not including wall wart) + shipping. I can mod it by adding more buffers, class A mod, switching input caps, etc.. - just tell me what you'd like and I'll give you a price.

ok,
erix

erix does good work, I'd expect this one sounds very good.

I am intrested but most of all I would want the amp enclosed in a case of some type. Throw in class A mod, extra buffer and some caps etc... I would actually like it... maxed out I guess is the term. I would like a big power supply that I could buy that would work with this amp; or one that you could build. COST IS A SECONDARY ISSUE! Send me a quote.

Hey neighbor!

If you're not interested in going down the road sacd lover wants to cover, I might be interested. I don't need it in a case; in fact I've been thinking about getting my hands on something like this that I could build a nice wood case for.

The only real "mod" I'd want is a secondary board to give me a couple levels of crossfeed. You'd just need to put it together with some leads and give me some instruction on where/how to insert it into the circuit. I can solder two wires together on a good day, but that's about the extent of my electronic capabilities. You probably have enough parts laying around in your workshop to whip something together.

COST IS A MAJOR ISSUE! I'M AS CHEAP AS THEY GET


Stuff a note in a bottle and throw it in the river if you're interested
. On second thought, you'd better e-mail me; who knows when the river might start to freeze over:

I cant really justify buying this thing but it sure is pretty. I love how nicely laid out, symmetrical perfboard amp circuirty looks.

*bump* for good craftsmanship.



Be sure and let me know what your plans are, erix;...regarding a possible trade mentioned previously.
