Wondering if anyone is doing any DIY hardware projects (for example, amplifiers, preamps, mixers, etc). Any successes?
Kits tend to be either too cheap, or too expensive it seems.
Just finished a smallish simple but overbuilt (to my specs) headphone amplifier. Works fine. Uses a 4881 Boomer chip. Sounds pretty good, but noticibly harsh mids from such a cheap chip (but good output levels). May consider attemptiing a burr-brown version at some point, possibly driving a fet output. (like a mini power amp). Lots of luxury recording studios replace the op-amps in their mixers to the BB type.
