I have been interested in this, the time lag made me afraid you were not
going to publish any additional details.

What other distribution amp plans or kits are others aware of?  I know of
the TAPR TADD design, which is op-amp based, and the G4HUP design, which
is based on MMIC devices.  The design Hoffmann is working on is the first
I have seen based on optimized discrete devices (assuming that eventually
full schematics and Gerber files are published, to be able to consider it
in the "kit" category, even if I have to get my own PCB's built).
Are there others which I just have not seen yet?
