Hi Shane, The Forewatt is also a diy project and you can check it out on the diyaudioprojects.com site. It can be built rather inexpensively if you have lots of parts hanging around. I am always happy to assist folks with their builds. There are no funky parts in the preamp and the transformer (often a pricy thing) is under $20 from Edcor. You do need to shield the circuitry from it, but there are many cheap ways to do it. It would be interesting to hear how Sonicaps sound in it. So far I don't know of anyone who has used them. I use Jantzen Silver Z in mine. With only one cap in the signal path the choice has a big effect on the sound. One diyer found this out the hard way, by using a brand X 50 cent one. Then complained about the sound. I was polite and did not tell him what to do with his soldering iron. Laughing I suggested that maybe some better ones at least $2 might work better.

Good Listening
Bruce
