The Gar OA10 was created by Gary Barnett of Barnett Industries. This DOA is a twelve transistor amplifier modeled after the legendary Neumann OA10. Gary has reformatted the layout to match the 2520 footprint. The original OA10 layout was a completely different proprietary footprint. These function perfectly in CAPI, API, or other gear with 2520 footprint opamps.
The original OA10 was actually designed to run on +/-22 V rails but it should be noted that the garOA10 has been rigorously tested on +/-28 V rails with great success. So as a bonus, the garOA10 can be used in the GDIY 51x format which utilizes +/-24 V rails.
How do they sound? According to CAPI: "The low end warmth is what got us about it. So thick and hefty without being pillowy or flabby. I think it will rule for kick and bass. We also like the smooth top end!"
Some of the applications the garOA10 DOA can be used for: Microphone Preamplifiers Line or Booster Amplifiers Lossless Combining Amplifiers Balanced Transformerless Amplifiers Equalizers and Compressors
Additional features and specs: Industry standard 2520 footprint for plug-in or PC mount connections Low noise, high power output Low distortion Minimum load impedance is 75 ohms for full output voltage Power supply voltage is bi-polar +/- 12 VDC to +/- 28 VDC
