Many thanks, will get some J113s then.

You write the J310 is not ideal. I assume Rgs is R108 (3k3R) in my board? So what I have today is a J109 (came with the GB) and 3k3R. Please be certain you do not mistake the J109 for something else, we caused some confusion earlier in this thread because of this . Anyways, I take it from your answer that this is "not possible".

So you suggest SK170. I will have to replace the 3K3R with something around 360R? Does it matter if SK170 BL or GR?

Thanks for you patience.
Sven
And, trying to un-confuse this a bit more, to be more clear. The 'impossible' means that it is impossible to have a 1mA current source (in this application) using the J109 and the 1mA was the design parameter for this current source.

On the other hand, the power supply will happily function using the J109 and 3k3, but; the supplied current will be between 600 and 750mA (not the design goal) and it will not be a CCS (not the design goal). Especially the last (it not being a CCS) hurts the performance of the PSU (but slightly).

Some time ago it got an R1 board back from Hesener that still had some bugs.
AS Audio helped me to solve it.
One board had two transistors reversed and the oscillation was stopped by using base stoppers on the input of the bootstrapped diamond buffer.
Will be interesting to compare the R1 to the R3 now.

Thanks for the hint - too bad my R1 boards never oscillated.... Yes, it would be interesting to compare sonic signatures. Also, I was thinking about putting the "Calvin buffer" into my paradise R3.

With so many Paradise stages out there, we should be able to come up with a "Paradise Fest"

Alfred, when you implement the Calvin buffer please tell me how you like it.
I get really good results, especially more transparency and slam.

I am with you in this one too! Curious to know how you guys find its sound!

I only have one channel of Paradise so far, but I have just shy of half of the "Calvin buffer" done [right hand schematic in #52]. I posted a picture in Calvin's buffer thread. It is scary looking, but small enough to fit in some empty space on the Paradise pcb. Now I just need to muster the courage to tackle the lower half and the output Zobel, a few more wires to interface with the world are also still missing.
