After a few days I will be pulling the simplistic to the measurement bench. When I do that, I will hook up the power supply to the v1.0 regs and measure the current.

On the v1.2r, what a difference a night makes. The soundstage has returned and no hints of compression that I originally perceived. Percussion in particular has more drive to it. Still a bit more laid back than the v1.2 was in identical conditions, but pleasantly so. It has a very nice balance to it. yLinda Rondstat is absolutely stunning. Al Hirt and Pete Fountain are in their glory.

Your last posts rung more familiar to my experience with it. Don't forget that you had tuned your HF cap in the Riaa with the previous TT and cart plus 1.2.

True. I will measure in the next day or so and retune if need be. figure it should stabilize first

I cant see 150pF steps reliably on my screen when I measure the riaa filter but I can easily hear them for tonal balance. Maybe because they impact a wide band.

these are also my subjective impressions when comparing v12 and v12r.

All my builds have the same current and the same vref so the differences reside on the output caps and the error amp.

V12 has incredible detail, speed and projects a wide soundstage but in some cases I prefer v12r with the bigger projection of low mids, high lows.

As for V1 ... it adds more weight but looses detail, depending on the EL used.

I remind, don't forget to re evaluate cart's load and riaa HF cap with every regulator type. You can strike even more tonal synergy and retain mostly positive characteristics in each one. He, that's really esoteric stuff.

Great, fixed the problem (possible a cold joint), now I can say YES I am in the V1.2R Olimpos zone the best way to finish 2.010, thanks & congrats Salas for very good reg.

P.S. Really it's a esoteric stuff.

The esoteric stuff is what is fun and what keeps it interesting. Always something to fidget with.....


I assume EL is electrolyticCap
