5am, can't sleep... let's draw up the concept of the Usagi-Yojimbo.
Yojimbo turned out to be a no-R no-C amp in the concept (in the signal part at least). Initially I wanted a 2:1 stepdown, if any, in the 26 preamp as it seemed like such a waste. I remember I had a set of Tribute amorphous 1:4 step-up transformers, so I could actually get back the gain of the 26 preamp which now sports a 4:1 stepdown in the output. Best of both worlds?
