Hi,

Altho it's already been addressed, I'd say these things will cure this colouration lot:

- clock (only with good psu) [improves PRAT and solidity a lot]
- hdam bypass [speeds things up, and it's just sublime]
- dc block cap shorting [the bass becomes more free etc.]

As for the 'information' - do most of the things discussed in this thread (yes, it's a lot of work) and you'll be surprised at just how much information there is on CD (I was!).

For the tonal balance/colour etc. I would suggest that's largely down to resistor choices, the op-amps used and their psu bypass caps (perhaps!).

If I estimate from the KI picture I have, I would say 7cm. maximum.
That would correspond to about 30VA max. I think it can be done.

Thanks dude, that's better. Mine was a bit small
How big is that thing?

Now, would you be so kind to unsolder some wires and do a current measurement on some of them?

Ray.

Uh, humm, looks like someone got a bit excited with his regulator boards and dumped his salty lassi in the player...

Hi.
I've just looked at Antrims site.

The 50va has the following dimensions :

Power rating 50VA

Regulation 13%

Dimensions: 81 x 38mm
Weight: 0.8kg


Would that fit??
(My 63 is not accessible at the moment!)

Andy

It will be very very tight against C803/C804.

Will it mount the same?
