    Well worth the read, I proof read the chapter on voltage multipliers for him. A strong argument could be constructed that an amp is really a power supply modulator, and as such the PS deserves as much attention as the rest of the amp

    Neato! I love his website and the preamp book. :cool:

    Totally. And "deficiencies" in that power supply can color the resulting sound in ways we like. :)

    For years I've been telling people "a great amp starts with a great power supply" to fall mostly on deaf ears. If it doesn't have something to do with the preamp you hear crickets chirping.

    I will have to pick up a copy soon as it's sure to be a great read. Thank you for the announcement.
