I've hacked one blue board to bits as you know.

Great project Salas, not least because you're here to hold our hand. How in hell do you speak such good English?
I have spent a year in Manchester before 20yrs. I guess I picked it up a bit there. Now, between the ''can you spare a fag mate?'' and ''ta love'' to explaining a CCS and a cascode it must have taken a miracle.
Was nice at the Hacienda though. Can't remember much more than Bassomatic and a constant thirst nonetheless.

Oh, and thanks for this info. I was hoping to use a spare 30VA 18-0-18 traffo just to get me going. This helps a lot.

Cheers

Plus Jon Dasilva and the chill outs in Subterranean with the New Order, or the pints in the Dry bumping on Shaun Ryder. Anti diva days.

Jon Dasilva was quality. Fair play you saw New Order, respect. I saw The Stone Roses there and once stood next to Tony Wilson for 10 mins before realizing who he was!

Amazing stuff! Have you seen the film about the Hacienda - 24 Hour Party People

Great film, by the way.

Guess what, I have "found" a whole bag of 10x BC550Cs in my box of delights, so the single reg RIAA shunt is on the road again. I'm getting 25.56v DC out and Vdrop across the 3K3 is 21.61v DC

Remind me how to calculate for a 28-30v supply will you...

By the way, this is with 1.7Vf leds.

Yes, I have added a link about that flick too.

3.978k in total. Add one in series to the 3k3 that will get it about there, or make some other new combination from paralleled ones, whatever.
