    Hi:


    Are any of you familiar with this blog:

    http://nwavguy.blogspot.com/2011/07/o2-headphone-amp.html


    This guy is a hard core objectivist audiophile, who designed a cost
    minimized, performance maximized headphone amp with the measurements to
    prove it.

    Some of the reading is hilarious, as he shreds audiophoolery myths.

    Enjoy.

    It is a bit excessive, but there is some great stuff in there that make
    audio folks and probably quite a few engineers don't realize, such as
    low noise specs don't make a low-noise circuit. And detailed
    measurements and comparisons to other products is a lengthy process.

    O2 amps to go with the Oxygen audio cables.
