Not exactly cheap but acceptable.

I just saw that. Not bad as I paid $6.00 ea for six standard back when they were readily available. Not sure if the difference is worth the $16 shippling.

Black Gate FK costed, when I last saw them at a decent price, 16US$ each.

If F are at least 80% as good as FK I would buy them but I didn't tried them so I can't say...

Dario, I have other DIYer version of MyRef. When increase the volume to more than 70% its clipping. I am having 6400uF pannasonic caps. Using 10k DACT attenuator as volume pot. Using 6ohm Monitor Audio RX6 speakers. Do you have any idea why its clipping? Have you faced problem like this? Is clipping is normal? Has anyone faced this kind of problem? Sorry to post this kind of noob problems here in FE beta build. I am just a beginner learning things.

Thanks
Badri

What is the voltage of your tranformers?

With 6 Ohm speakers and the My_Ref it's wiser to use 22-24V secondaries to avoid clipping.

Also 6400uF smoothing caps are way too low.

Default PCX Black Gate

I talked to the guys at Parts ConneXion today. I had already ordered some Black Gate PK, but forgot to order some Mundorf power supply caps. While I was on the phone, I asked him if he had enough PKs to fill my order. He replied that they have quite of few of those.

Just an FYI
