The Shohin is an all new amplifier built with dual Burr Brown OPA627BMs and dual LME49600 High Performance buffers. It’s designed for those looking for our house sound but with a bit more of an analytical edge. The amplifier design is similar to dual mono in that each channel uses it’s own separate opamp and separate buffer as well as having a separate and compact circuit board configuration but where it differs from True dual mono is that The Shohin’s two channels share the same power supply. So, while it is not a true dual mono much of the benefits of dual mono are achieved in a pocket friendly battery powered amplifier. Another change from past amplifiers is that The Shohin now has three separate gain settings. The gain settings are now 2/7/10.
