The Ultimate DIY Part 2 ? The KGITSOJC

Recommended Posts

so it turns out the hawksford already came up with the idea of cascading a current mirror (well sort of)



it also turns out that the single ended version where you ground the input, and then drive the emitters

makes an absolutely wonderful I/V converter for your favorite dac.

also previously released in a simplified version by pedja rogic.



so the building blocks are now piling up.

need a really sweet output stage (not the headphone kind)

and this preamp should be able to compete with the big boys.

well there is this



I'm not going to finish the ultimate preamp till a reliable source of audio grade complementary jfets

is available. Too many fakes out there to design with old stuff, and linear systems is a bunch

of incompetent fucknuts. But I do have a working one on the bench. It has to be a jfet input otherwise

the input impedance is too low and the bipolar parts have too much offset with high impedance sources.

Hi ! 

Sorry for hijacking the tread ))

I check this tread and find only schematic for Vendetta - if i miss something -i am sorry.

Any chance to see the board picture for this phono stage clone - or even order one through the GB ? 

I am quite interested to make this unit - heard a lot of good reviews of this one.


Thanks in advance 

With  respect
