Will you listen and critique?


I have developed an amplifier technology and a phono preamp that I have taken to the 'pre-product' stage and am looking for knowledgable listeners to critique so that I can improve my work.

I have a website with specs and like showing pre-production hardware.  My goal is to get first article product in late March, now I want to finalize the sonics.  That means I need smart ears to tell me what they hear (I subscribe to the "Every Mother's Baby's Beautiful" Principle so I have taken this work to point that I can no longer objectively trust my perceptions).

The epicenter of this is Austin, Texas and I would prefer proximity so I can meet you personally but the intranet video will do.

The Black Amp is a headphone amplifier, no feedback, Class-A, all current mode gain structure.

I am scaling up to a 50-watt version as a concept amp, I have never seen this approach to a power amplifier and I have been at this 60 years. and i can scale that up without any pain. This will be available in 3 weeks for listening.

The phono preamp is called the Black Swan, resolution with fully adjustable front-panel real-time cartridge loading.

This is not about sales, this is about making sure I got the sonics right.
