Hello,

I'm absolutely new to the forum, but not new to the world of audio. I'd like to try my hand at building a Pete Millett Hybrid MAX, but the Beezar site states they are out of the MAX PCB's and that they would be available in a few weeks. Does anyone know "Available in a few weeks" relative to what date???

I'm pretty psyched about it and any information would be nice.... thanks!

Ron

p.s. my other goal is to DIY an all tube amp similar to the Woo Audio 6. Any suggestions for a like amp please post...thanks again.

If you want an all tube amp, why the MAX Hybrid?

All tube? I'd suggest you look here: The Bijou Headphone Amplifier

Thanks for the recommendation on the "all tube amp".

Any other recommendations...?

Why not build the Millett Hybrid MiniMAX ? It's essentially the same as the MAX, just a little smaller!

I'm not sure how safe it is to jump straight into a bijou or the sorts just yet, you could potentially fry your willie off with its high voltages... or worse.. fry yourself off your willie... or both.. aargh

I'm a test engineer... building and testing is what I do for a living. I have access to a well equipped lab and all it's offerings. I'm sure my willie will be just fine

glassjaraudio is the main proponent of kits. not sure if he has mini-max pcb and kits yet, but he has others. he has the SOHA II as well, just ask him, hasn't put it out as a kit yet on his webpage. I wouldn't bother with the regular SOHA.

One that hasn't had much mention is the EHHA. I am going to do that as my next hybrid, after I clean out my todo list of builds. It should be interesting, to say the least, as the topology is different from all the other hybrids. I don't think Jeff Rossel (glass jar audio) has kits for that, but I think sourcing the parts from mouser/digikey/ebay/etc. will run you roughly $300 or so, so plan a budget of $500 and you should be OK with the EHHA.

Embedded Hybrid Headphone Amlifier for parts list, etc.

Enjoy the build. You'll be chatting to some helpful folk on the miniMAX thread. Tom is a marvel on his own though, and the site that he's put up... <goes off to listen to his miniMAX>
