My version of the DCB1 buffer based on Nelson Pass' B1 schematic.
Powered by a pair of shunt regs (slightly hotrodded with a bias of the regulators of 350mA per rail), with added capacitance of 23500uF per side.
Volume control is a 8th Note digital attenuator based on japanese mini relays (working beautifully).

The case is made of ureol with a front out of moroccon Thuja wood, both knobs turned from delrin.
