Help a noob build Pedja Rogic's J-fet buffer
 
I have one of the original briangt gainclone kits. just got it working and while it sounds good, it is a bit rolled off and weak, dynamically. Same as I have encountered with any amp with a passive attenuator.

so in my searching, I came across Pedja Rogic's J-fet buffer. I want to build one into Peter Daniel's integrated amp case.

questions I had were,

1. Where do place this buffer in the signal path? I assume before the volume pot?

2. Can I use the 25k pot I have now, or do I need a different value?

3. The schematic calls for a 15+15v psu. Can I just add windings to my current 100va toroid?

4. Lastly, will the j-fet be susceptible to hum from the toroid? Will it need to be shielded?

Thanks in advance.

And look for the recent thread where somebody is having PCBs made for these buffers. ;)
