There are options between high CCS, low CCS, reg only, full buffer. Matched fets are the quad behind the relay.

Big diodes and big 10W 10R resistors and big heatsinks make it hotrod. Small diodes, 47/47R small resistors, mini heatsinks make it regular.

Tea had a blog I think showing the prototype constructed.

Blue DCB1 is not a kit, its a better board for a very extensively discussed project. Has its options, and its very easy to figure. All builders are happy to explain specifics.
Wonder why 10 ohm resistors did not make it hot at all ?

Which bit do you want to get "hot"?
The 10W resistor, or the Shunt mosFET, or the CCS mosFET, or the PCB traces, or ...... ?

The shunt mosfet or just something .As I remember nothing got Hot at all. It is in our club and for some reason we have not used it yet. It was intended for use with bad designed Audio Note dacs.

Use 2.2R 10W resistors and it will get hot. Those MOSFETS are 0.83 RΘJC devices included to can go in amperes constant current if chosen so. Use green 2V+ leds in the triplets to aid voltage drop over the Rset as the Vgs nears the total Vf with stronger current choices. Have your K probe or laser aiming thermometer handy to check your sinks are sufficient.

Maybe I will try that in the New year ! We have to listen to it first to exsperience if there is need for that.

Those MOSFETS really pick up when run heavy, they are big VMOS like the ones you have seen in class A American amps. 10R is just stage one. If its sinked on a biggish plate or chunky sinks you won't feel it hot.
