hi.
why it's that bad to thight thermo-couple the transistors? That is what I understand by using a thin strip of copper. My solution is to fasten all the transistors in each stage in a bouquet with a strip of copper, soldering them to a little pcb, then to the main pcb.

and if the paradise goes balanced, what with the amplifier.? I think already to add balanced inputs to my amplifier because my Oppo has balanced outs, but I can't figure it how. Is it worth to add a balanced input stage to an amplifier that is not designed in this way?

I use this thread now for an off topic question related however to the shunt regulator. Sorry!

The question: how could I get 26 -27 volts from the shunt regulator used in the paradise? I need a shunt to supply the voltage for a preamplifier.

Which are the differencies between Salas shunt and this one? Bref, I want to supply the preamp stage in my integrated NAD 375 from a shunt instead the simple regulator that is used. The NAD 165 preamp use a shunt instead, but it's a classic design, with a zener diode, not with leds and other spices. So, what do you recommend?

Ricardo, do you hav an ideeea what kind of improvements DYNAVOX.CH brings to the Swiss version of NAD they sell?

I have seen some revamped Myryads and it seems they have better psu's and caps, but I had not the opportunity to compare.

Add more LED's to the chain of LED's or replace them all with a zenerdiode of the desired voltage - 600mV or replace one LED with a zenerdiode(26V) - LEDcount * 1.8V - 600mV.

The big difference is the CCS.
