Hi Gerhard,

I was just wondering what "SmellOfPoo" means, is it German?

Regards

Default One ohm resistors

Loking over the BOM for the twisted pear mono boards, did not see the 1 ohm resistors listed. Are they in the 1/4 watt group?

sometimes in life you discover something so precious that you want to keep it for yourself. well i wanted to..........

as Ryan suggested. place a 3k3 resistor form the -ve supply pin4 to the output pin 6

viola your stereo becomes a holographic machine. well almost

very worthwhile. try it you might be suprised

cheers

Hey Russ, How is the conversion comming along. once you've done that then try the 3k3 on the 318. this is one tweak that left me cold

Yes I did try it, but I only had enough trafos for one channel. So I will reserve final judgment, but off hand I would not say I was overwhelmed. Still I don't think it was bad.

I actually used a current source to bias the LM318 to class A once. It is indeed quite nice, but it lowers the headroom on the chip a little.

I meant to try it again. This is as good a time as any.

Cheers!
Russ

I don't blame you if you say you weren't blown away if you used one channel. you obviously need two channels to get the full effect. i think you can even run one trafo for the 18v power supplies. anything over 30va will then do. 9not the best solution but will work) i feel the secret lies in the 18v not 12v

the "class a" trick. well i did not think that it robbed it of any headroom. What it added is so much better than a bit of loss in headroom

cheers
Rudi
