am disappointed to see these suggestions that it is a bit of advertisement. I was asked for a link, which I provided. If I wasn't asked for one I would not have given any. Damn if you do provide a link, damn if you don't it seems.
Thank you for the link Stanley BUT I thought the "initial" idea was (when you contacted me almost a year ago) that you would discuss the prototype here?
The idea for the headphone amp started in a thread here.
Yes, and you said you would stay here and discuss / gain opinions / ideas etc. but you disappeared off the map.
And as I already wrote just above your comments, I built a prototype on a PCB and a couple of forum guys came round to listen to it and offer advise etc. A few posted their comments online after hearing the first prototype. I am at a loss why you are comparing the performance of a DIY prototype to a Graham Slee finished product, especially since you have not heard them side by side. Even talking about price comparisons are far fetched. Jumping the gun to attack me in order to come up smelling of roses? And one wonders why this forum is now avoided like the plague by many? With the kind of helpful comments like yours it is easy to see where it all stems from.
I don't see any attacks Stanley, just a bit of disappointment that you renaged on your promise to discuss your design here maybe?
And one wonders why this forum is now avoided like the plague by many?
Quite simply because there is no input from members maybe? (or YOU? Don't start buying hair gel just yet, I STILL haven't got a f**kin' clue who you are) Lots of questions from lots of people looking for answers but very few people prepared to keep "answering" time and time again (with no thanks).

I haven't read the entire contents of the "link" you provided Stanley and I don't know who compared your prototype to a production example of a Graham Slee amp but I can confidently assure you that ANY prototype, from a competent DIY'er, will VASTLY outperform a Graham Slee production "op amp in a box" type (slip the reviewer a few quid and let him keep the review sample) amp. That was unfair to compare your design to anything "remotely" associated with Graham Slee (or his type)..... I can only apologise for that and can imagine your disgust at being compared to a snake oil outfit like Slee and Russ Andrews

Alex, actually, smells like sh1t (all Australians do) you can blame the colonial penal system for that......... they still don't have running tap water in the colonies. At best, Alex would have loved to have come up smelling like a gherkin but he would never, and I mean NEVER, think he could smell like a rose Alex would NEVER "attack" a fellow human being, he's a decent guy (who I consider a GOOD friend) so you've got that one wrong Stanley....... I think Alex, like I, was just a bit disappointed by the way you went about things after being given the "go ahead" to post "freely" on RockGrotto.
It's not a biggie but I trust you can appreciate why Alex (and myself) are a bit miffed.
