Re: BMP component comparisons
Yes, I saw that one. Looks interesting. I was planning to take the BMP circuit and directly replace the bipolar gain stages with JFET gain stages, to see if it sounds better than the green Sovtek BMP I have sitting around. I'll be sure to mismatch the second set of diodes so that it switches over to a high degree of 2nd harmonic distortion as it fades out (thanks Mark!!!).... I picked the 2N5485 because its transconductance is 3500uMhos and its bias voltage is rather small. I figure that it ought to give a good deal better gain than a 2N5458 or similar, especially with the source resistors bypassed.  
C ya,
