Who we are and what Project Starlight is all about: G1217 consists of two audio enthusiasts, Myself (Jeremy H) based here in the US and our electrical mad scientist (Frans G) across the pond in the Netherlands. The short story: Frans designs our gear electrically and somehow comes up with this stuff – absolutely a master at his craft. Myself, I handle the physical designs and actual products you receive from G1217. We both really do 10x the work of that brief description, but it gets the basics across. We are all about getting the most for your money which is why we are factory direct only. This keeps prices low and value high. Offering excellent gear over the years, our customers have spread the word which has let us grow from a single amplifier offering to 6 designs with more products on the way! Features of Starlight: Easy Set bias via LED indicators. No need to use a multimeter anymore when rolling tubes! Access from the side of the amp, no removal of top cover Easy access to bias trimmers. You can use a jewelers screwdriver to dial in the bias through the top cover, no need to remove the cover to set Access to the 6/12V jumper through the top cover, no need to remove the top 3 Output impedance settings Revised protection circuit protects your headphones and audio gear 1A dedicated heater power supply for current hungry tubes Ability to run a pair (one per channel) or quad opamps for increased output Ability to roll several opamps and see what you like Designed in the U.S. & Netherlands.
