Yet another Gainclone

This was unavoidable, I guess. Dual mono LM3886 kit from (the site is down) with Avel Lindberg's transformers in a wonderfully compact enclosure from Design Build Listen. I liked the simplicity but not the sound.

However, this project started the whole line of exploration of how implementation of opamp circuits affects the audible and measurable performance of those circuits and eventually led to HiFiOcean. I now make and offer Gainclone boards that sound and measure much better.
