As the title says ... want to tackle a DIY headphone amp build.  Pretoria / Centurion / Johannesburg area preferred.

Unless your looking for a second hand one, best bet is to get a magnum from Communica.  If its just to build the amp you can borrow mine.

Should have one of those you can borrow once you go ahead.   But the Magnums are nicer to work with if you intend building more stuff downstream  :rubhands:
