I have been enjoying my gear unchanged since about 2013. Maybe I should be banned? Suffice it to say I've had minimal activity in the past few years, that said, what might people say could be a cheap and easy way to try out OB bass before making a full GR Research plunge? I want to, but I'm also conservative in the COVID era, and would love to start w super easy prototypes before getting into something I'd want for years. I'd love to hear your ideas, or suggestions if you have any. Important factor, and to make things more complicated, is that I don't have a lot of time to build. We started having kids late, and we have 4 young ones, so the activity must be cleared w the significant other. That's a reason why I'd like to try something like a prototype before going full bore, or just purchasing a finished product from someone on the site. Secondarily, one of my prized possessions is a Gary Dodd amp with all of the trimmings, it uses a Class D 254 chip. Think it's worth trying to update w a new chip? Or is that a bit crazy? Peace to you, be well, and have fun.
