I built the 10R version for now, maybe I'll up the current later. The power resistors I used are non-inductive planar 10R 5w thick film resistors (BI Technologies BPC5100J). The noise figures are comparable with metal film it seems. I just thought I'd give these a try, and since I'm using many fancy flavoured parts (at least for my taste) it fits the bill. I had to remove the original legs, which were some clamp-on soldered types, and fit them with bent copper leads since the original spacing was too small for the board. If you look close enough you can see it in the second picture.

The MOSFETs are IRFP140N/9140N. The 5-LED chain is matched to 9.30V/9.29V (values measured in circuit), using 12VDC and 1k in series with it. The 3-LED chain was matched to 5.59V/5.58V (measured in circuit). The 5-LED chains are fed by 2SK170 that I once measured to...
