Leo, can you expand on that?   I know a DIYer that could be interested.    What's included/excluded?

This is just the board that is used inside the BOSC amplifier. No case and no power supply. Pictured here:

The BOSC amps arrive tomorrow.  It is going to be a musical day!  :D

I have the test data from Leo now.  I suggested for each amp to add a voltage gain measurement and Leo added it to the test data.

The Orchard Audio BOSC GaN amps have arrived.

Will be setting them up the Magnetar open baffle planar speaker for listening trials.

Ditto here!   Da BOSC are in da house!   It'll take a few more days before I've got time to get them setup.  I'll post what I hear when I hear it.

My BOSC are up and singing ever so sweetly via Roon --> PecanPi Streamer --> BOSC amps!

They sound every bit as good as I remember... detail and clarity galore with a tight and well defined bass.   And all this in a secondary system overlooking my dining room and kitchen.   I'm using an old pair of B&W bookshelf speakers that never sounded so good.    My justification is that I told my wife i'd spend more time in the kitchen cooking.   Hey, it could happen.

And I couldn't resist... I've also ordered a short pair of speaker cables from Pete @ Triode Wire Labs since the BOSC are sitting right next to the speakers.    :thumb:

Thank you Leo!

The BOSC amps are up and running with my new planar speakers the Magnear planar magnetic OB speakers.  Spunds really good and still tweaking the dspMusik crossover.
