Just curious if anyone thinks that they will spring for Doc B's new headphone amp kit? Sounds like it will go for $300 or so. I don't have much personal experience with his other kits but there aren't too many people who don't consider the vast majority of them "high bang fpr the buck" products.

I almost fell for the foreplay but circumstances pushed me towards my wooaudioI. Everyone likes Doc B's stuff though...but if it's $300 for the kit, I'd get a wooaudioI again.

Doc's also got the paramour, the foreplay, his original amp was also named the sex, which is why the preamp is named foreplay, and his phono amp is called seduction. All in good fun...

Wow this thing is extremly flexible.

I already run a Bottlehead amp for my K1000s though.

Try explaining to your wife that you're about to pay for sex. Or for that matter, that you're going to write a review on sex. That would go over like a fart in an elevator!

I have heard the proto-type (spelling?) of Doc's SEX amp with my HD-600 Equinox. Very nice sounding!

Was that your set at RMAF? I was less than thrilled with having to listen to the HD497s connected to the thing since I knew that the HD497s aren't too responsive to amplification although it seems they were trying to demo a budget set of cans to folks. I quickly swapped for those HD600s since I wanted to hear how the thing sounded with a set of cans I knew were more responsive to amplification. While it wasn't bad overall, I thought the amp sounded a bit thick and slow although it was quite pleasant sounding. For $349 it certainly wasn't bad and probably fun to put together.

Wish the enclosure was a bit nicer. The MAD amps use the same materials and looks 10x better.
