Tanks Joachim
I shuld have put this better, I do not imply design flaw, if this is not clear you and any naive reader have my apologies.

Just jumping the gun realy as I am thinking about next build with 1% resistors and limited suply of Jfets.

Did you build with resistors that do not have 1% tolerance !

The latest version of the parts list match these PCB.
Very cool!! I like it. Sorry you couldnt participate in the group buy.... In fact, we have 3-4 people on the waiting list so that may eventually lead to another group buy, unless you would like to do one with yours?

I assembled and tested the Pre-Reg PCB. There was an error that is now corrected. Output voltage is around 31V at 120ma supply current. I find it a little on the high side for the preamp shunt reg (35Vmax to 25Vmin recommended). In order to lower the heat dissipation of the shunt reg, I did a simple RC PCB (forming a CRC filter with the caps on the preamp). It is intended to be installed between both preamp pcb. It will lower the pre-reg supply to about 28V, adding some more filtering in the process. I did it using parts I had in stock, nothing fancy. I modified to BOM to add these parts.

Hi Algar

Do you use 0.1uF caps to bypass the rectifier diodes or did you plan snubbers ?

Hi Joachim

is there a line amp and a power amp(DIY) that fits to the qualities of the Paradise phono amp?

I have posted that before. The Rose and a fitting power buffer. Have to find it though.
