Black Diamond Headphone Amplifier, Part 2

In Part 1 of this article, I detailed the theoretical background to the design. This part will detail the practical build process of the circuit as well as the enclosure.

The Circuit

The idea of the circuit is to use an input buffer, a step up interstage transformer for gain, and an output buffer. The circuit used for both buffers is a modification of the so-called Diamond Buffer that utilizes a servo to control for output DC offset. Everything is DC coupled.
