Has anyone checked the 'ammo tape' devices from the first group buy? If so what were your general findings regarding suitability in this application?

Many thanks

Joe and I have just gone through 1000 transistors from the group buy + 300 I sourced externally. We managed close matching on the 327 but the 337 were 20 higher and looser matched. I guess they will do.

All soldered up just wondering about how to wire up the loading resistor? Am i right in thinking it just goes from signal to ground. If so can I place it at the input on the pcb

I think you must jumper the "Neumann".

That is R3 with imput offset on top pf board ?

On R2 I have cartridge loading resistor on spare imput terminals as there are 2 sets side by side just on right side of off set pot

Sorry, but I think you have mounted the two caps on the upper right (6800F/6.3V) in the wrong direction.

I had noticed that, amazing that at the time I hadn't seen it. Can't see the wood for the trees.

I do however have other issues, like none of the LEDS lighting up on one board- they are all good though. And 4 of the LEDS on the other board having shorts. Of course they are 4 of the LEDS under the heatsink.

Much work to do, sorting out faults and building a PSU I can actually trust rather than the one I borrowed that i'm not 100% sure of.
