Adamus - Have you posted impressions on your DAC and preamp anywhere yet? I love building DACs, and I am also curious about the B1, as I have some of those Salas boards and also a Pass Labs board.

Beefy - Nice clean looking Gamma2...like it a lot.

not yet, the dac is still a new toy so waiting to live with it for a few weeks. Early impressions are good though, and its very different to my previous dac (transformer coupled using sowter)

The dc coupled B1 is the 'cleanest' buffer i have tried yet. seems very transparant and made an important idfference in my system - which was suffering a slight impedance mismatch with just a passive pre.

The b1 is very good at its job.

With the Dac + the B1 i now have 42 LED's in my system, most of them acting as voltage references. seems rather excessive doesnt it! thats for 5 Salas shunt supplies. I would thoroughly recommend the salas boards supplies, they do a fantastic job.

i was considering the Salas shunt but opted for a Pass PCB instead. i hope i have enough gain from my y2 and F5 to drive 88dB speakers. i just finished routering some sapele for the chassis.

Finally got some photos of my M3. It is a single chassis M3 with a sigma 11 PSU configured for 27V. Bulgin power switch is wired with the e24 circuit and using thermal breakers on all heatsinks. M3 is set to gain of 5 and using the OPA627 opamps. Also have the e12 headphone muting and protection circuit.

lots of nice options on this build.



Did not see the point of only protecting half of them
