I'm pleased to announce that we are introducing a new DIY solid state preamp buffer board kit, the SSPB.V2.
The SSPB.V2 is "bag of bags of parts" kit where every part must be soldered into place on a blank printed circuit board. The kit is the buffer board proper only. It does NOT include all the other elements needed to build a complete stand alone buffer such as enclosure, input/output jacks, power jack, feet, wire, etc.
Some of you may recall that we introduced the solid state LDR300.V25 Buffered Preamp last year. The SSPB.V2 board is an updated version of a similar board we used in LDR300 before it was discontinued. The new design is smaller, has more flexibility and optional features, and in my opinion sounds even better.
This raises the obvious question of whether we plan on reintroducing the LDR300 with this new buffer board. The simple answer is yes. However the new LDR300 will incorporate several additional changes which we are not ready to talk about yet. Timing of this has not been nailed down yet so for now I'll just say first half of 2020.
The SSPB.V2 buffer kit can now be pre-ordered at a 20% discount. It will be released on Jan 14th. The pre-order price is $199. If you'd rather buy one fully built and tested it will set you back an additional $100 clams.
