I didn't like them at all: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...129#post162129

Still have few left, if somebody's looking for sample.

So would I connect my binding posts ground to the star power ground, and then from there run some more wires to the OG?

Not exactly, those pictures show it best (the black wires are from PG+/- on rectifier board)

Peter you need to update your PDF for the 3875 kit. It would be really hard to explain where all the information came from to get my amp where it is now. The process never ends.

You sure I can not just connect it all to the star ground? I am mostly just trying to avoid an assload of work.

It looks like you do not even have PG+ or PG- on the amp board wired to anything, are they just grounded through OG, and the ground from speaker binding post meets up there? Then they go to PG+ and PG- on the rectifier board?

That pdf is not mine, I'm just posting it there as it may be useful for general info, the specific info with regards to my kits is here: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...3&pagenumber=1

You may try to connect it all to star ground, but the method described earlier is probably most elegant.

That's the main thing: in some setups multiple wires from rectifiers PG to amp PG were creating noise, that's why I switched to the other method: connecting OG points from both channels; central point on that wire is your power star ground.

Still got noise.

I assume it is the toroidal that is too close. It is an Avel not a Plitron too. I thought Plitrons cost way more, and they use to take like two months or more to get so I got the Avel this time. Although if it is FM well I have no way to tell, it sounds like nothing. Perhaps I should add the cap, will it do anything bad for sound?

It sounds the best it has sounded though.

I took the cover off, removed some extra PG wires I forgot about. Still got sound.

When I turned it on without the case lid on the sounds from the speakers sound like the transformer. When the transformer powers on it is like twice as loud.

Maybe you could post some pics of your setup?
