    Default Interesting pre amp article

    'Political Correctness'.........defined

    "A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

    I hope Charlie credited Walt Jung for the design.Jung published that design back in the early 90's in The Audio Amatuer magazine and it is decent sounding.I have a stuffed board with the 744/811's installed if someone is interested.

    Apparently the guy likes Charlie's pre.......

    Of course, if he gets another job...do you have to wait 14 months to get your preamplifier? With only two out there [not identical] guess one would have to be either lucky, or very trusting as to Charlie's design.

    It is an interesting article. Charlie has a job right in front of his eyes if it is that good IMO. Just start building the damn things and go from there. Well, he'll have to boost production to make a profit..........

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    I would try one for the right price. I don't know what the right price is... In the end it all comes down to how it sounds for me. This is not the case for everyone. It could be a great design or it could be synergy.

    I saw where the writer was saying that the Lamm gear made the vocals sound "sweeter" and he seemed to like that. Perfectly (and we all know that is impossible) transparent preamps or any gear for that matter is not necessarily what I like in my rig.

    WOW Charlie does nice work.Checkout those stepped attenuators and how about those dual power supplies to power 4 little IC op amps.Sweet.
