Huh, for that price, you'd probably be best off with a lower end Meta42. Contact Tangent, eric343, or JMT for more information. Use private messaging.

Well, either Tangent or JMT. I'm currently not accepting orders due to heaps of schoolwork. And I'd ask for stacked buffers and a well-grounded case (wall-mount power supply if you can afford it)...

No, wait. Check this one out:

Or the slightly larger, slightly better version:
http://www.fixup.net/products/pktamp/mini.htm

Right in your price range, and about the size of 4AAs next to eachother. Definitely the smallest DIYFSE amp availible... And better than a CHA47, if this thread is anything to go by:
http://www.head-fi.org/forums/showth...0&pagenumber=1

Obviously, a META42 from Tangent or JMT would (probably?) sound better by a fair bit. However, I think that $130 or so is really the bottom end of the META42 price scale, and you'd be better off saving up a bit and spending around $200-$250. And if you can do that (just eat Ramen for a week), by all means get a META42! Y

*note that these are my recommendations based on my experience building META42s; JMT and Tangent probably (almost certainly) have different experiences. My ears are also different, and I definitely have a conflict of interest.

hmm, well i might as well post my specifications.

i want the best amp for my application within ~$130. the source is a MA2496, maybe using the digital out? im not sure... the amp will go into a cdrom case [ maybe a old 2x cdrom with the contents thrown away]. it would be powered by the power supply molex connections. not sure how that'd work. heat isnt really a big deal. i can just stick a case fan in there and its fine.. umm.. yeah. just a volume dial \ mute button and perhaps, if there is such a thing, dobly headphone? haha doubt it.. =)

Hi! That's provocative community
I accept a indubitably all round travelling.

I make a schengen visa issued inasmuch as multiple entry
quest of 1 year for subject travel.
Can I expend it to go on festival in Spain?
Or do I lack another visa in the service of tourism?

I bring about odd opinions on this story, e.g.
budget travel thinks that in Spain no problem with you comming here on a function
visa and using it as a tourist... But
travel line says that according to Visa rules and regulations, you cannot sojourn in a motherland exchange for touring purpose on proprietorship visa.

What do you think give this?
