    I subsequently found out that the board in the one I had wasn't the best so I'd be keen to try one again as I have a buyer for my Velleman valve pre amp so might be short of a pre soon lol.

    Does anyone have one I could borrow? I'll pay post both ways of course.

    If I liked it could someone build me one and if so how much would a finished one be?
    Let me know if you'd like another dcb1, i still have spare boards and parts.
    Could have ine built and posted in 3 days !!!

    Yes, have to confess that although I am highly sceptical about 'burn in' mine did seem to sound a little better each time I used it. The slight bit of congestion I reported when I first had it is now conspicuous by its absence.

    Hi Mike

    Price kinda depends on fit and finnish,

    type of volume control, critical resisters and case.

    I guess your looking at a price from 430 up over.

    That would be for one fitted with a Khozmo 50k series attenuator, Elma 2 pole 6 way switch, Dale 1% resistors
    If you start adding Audio Note Tantalum or silver resistors or changing the 2 x 0.22 wima caps for Jupiter caps then the price creeps up.

    Just an idea of price.

    Hi,

    Thanks for that, I'll give it some thought. If I sell my Velleman I might give it a try.
