    The information I have gathered on this amp is that it has sockets for changing out op amps and buffers, can use up to 15 IC's and puts out a little over 2.4 watts per channel. It is a quad design (all channels are separated) with a layered board having copper traces that are gold plated. The size is about the same as the iRiver H140 or 100mm long. 
     
    The PB2 is 12.6V when single ended, and it is 25.2V when balanced (swing). Run time is around 15 hours but varies widely depending upon what op amps are chosen and if the buffers are bypassed or not. There are many choices. The volume control is a custom ordered Alps for extremely close matching and is further checked to insure a extremely close tolerance with rejects being tossed.

    And the guys manning their sales desk are very courteous and quick to respond to any requests or questions that you have which is not too common with a Chinese based company. Win win situation I say  ! :D

    Good stuff [​IMG] Now we just need to advance 10 years into the future where these things can fit in thinner chassis

    Inevitably, definitely waiting for someone to pit this against the RSA SR-71B when it's released.

    With 15 IC's that can be changed and 2.4 watts of output and 26 volts of swing this should be another nice compliment to the portable balanced amplifiers. 
     
    It is supposed to be released around the 5th or 6th of January.
