"Monolith Liquid Platinum Headphone Amplifier by Alex Cavalli"

Recommended Posts

Unlikely to be a transient but only Alex knows at this point. Something with the clever way the filament and high voltage power supplies start up. You would think that rudimentary real world testing would have found this before a batch of them were made.

then again on the liquid carbon version 1, using balanced and unbalanced headphones at the same time, and the amp blows up, something else that should have been caught before a large batch were made.

Those pesky users doing completely normal things and the product blowing up.  They should know better!!  ;)

Apparently another problem that has cropped up is that someone who substituted a linear power supply for the stock switching supply caused the on-off switch on the amp to go AWOL, so whenever the LPS is turned on the amp turns on regardless of the amp power switch being off. The "solution" is to ban linear power supplies. And Monoprice has no repair facilities so they refer it to a local repair shop - I wonder if they cover the cost of repairs - that's a rhetorical question,
