    No relation to this seller, but I saw this and was curious what people with more knowledge of amplifier design thought about this:

    Don‘t know about the modifications, but the normal OBH-11 by today‘ standards is extremely mediocre to say it politely...
    And not really a need to start a thread for your question. There is an all purpose advice thread for such questions...

    Offer $125, the going price on the 'gon. People don't get any more selling modded cars, so why should they get any more for modded audio gear?

    The opamp Class A mods via the resister pull down are nothing special. People did that same exact mod on the Matrix M-Stage on HF, which BTW had an LPS instead of a cheap wall wart. Don't know why Nelson Pass was invoked. Actually offer $99 just to be a dick because of all that fluff about PNP NPN and TNT buttholes and Walt Jung's sPLOOGE.
