Hmm, so after having read the top conversations, which I saw after posting that they were from 2 years ago (I believe it was an old drop of this), I am having doubts whether this will follow the original NWavguy's design or not.
Can anyone confirm this will be using BOM from original design and it is going to be truthful in performance?

also interested to know more info on this as it would be a deal breaker for me if they had sacrifice performance just to bring down the price.

Don't suppose you saved any links to the posts you're referring to? I vaguely remember some concerns about this issue around the time of the first drop, but as best I recall they were adequately addressed by Massdrop.
I do remember that an early prototype produced by the manufacturer in China was made using compatible components they had on hand rather than sourcing the proper BoM listed parts, and that caused a bit of fuss. But actual production units should have been made with BoM sanctioned components.
The only lingering doubt I have is that the parts are presumably being sourced in China, and I can't help but think that there's an increased chance of counterfeit parts in the supply chain compared to other countries. It all depends on how reliable their suppliers are I guess.

I didn't save anything. But if you press on "Sort by:" and you select "top conversations" it is one of the first posts. You can load comments to check.

When I select top conversations, the very first post is this:
https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-o2-amplifier/talk/241801
Which is the start of a discussion triggered by the non sanctioned components used in the early prototype I mentioned above. That was posted before the first drop and some time before any actual production units were made.
It's nothing to worry about. These responses from @Will at Massdrop address the issue:

Yeah, I was speaking about that first post. The response from Will addressed this issue back then. Are we getting the correct BOM in this one from the start?
