Excellent but bring your glasses!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I ran across Chuck's preamps while on eBay. The board is extremely well made and all parts were present.
The SM caps and resistors were the smallest I have ever seen and to be honest were touchy to install. I have repaired SM boards before, but this was the first one I fabricated.
I mounted the amp in a cast aluminum chassis and powered it with a 9V battery. The board has a voltage regulator.
I was amazed at the gain and lack of distortion through out the frequency spectrum.
I am not associated with Chuck and suggest you visit his site for prices and specs.
I love this little amp!
