I have just sent the orders that have ticked in the last week - please let me know if you have ordered, but not received an email about shipping.

Default Current limiting

Like to try removing the current limiting now for comparison. Is it simply a matter of replacing R17,19,20 and R18,19,20 with wire link?
Thanks.

I'm glad you asked before trying that....
No, if you want to remove the current limiting, all you need to do is to pull out Q5 and Q6. If you want to remove more components, you can also remove R17,19,21 and R18,20,22 , but that will have no impact.

Thats right. I only looked at the ratings. There is a guy on ebay selling antek transformers for at good price. I think he might be from the forum - perhaps he'll make you a good deal. The anteks can be wired both to 115 and 230.

Hi Renron,

It was very nice to meet you at the BAF and thanks for the beer!

The F5 I brought to the show had only played for a few hours, but this circuit has always been so nice to me - never any hiccups!

I have attached a photo Vladimir took at the show while the crowd listened to a tube amp and looked at my F5 powering up.

Glad to "buy you one", It was a pleasure to meet you in person.
You took the kidding about your plywood amp very well! It did sound great, I had a wonderful time at BA3 and understood some of what was said by the guest speakers.
Christian it was indeed a pleasure to meet you, and thanks for the offer of troubleshooting my F5, at this point I'm sure Steve has it handled, he's pretty sharp. Thanks for the offer though.

Vlad, I appologize again......................you know what I'm speaking about.
Thank you for the generous offer with you business card too.

GREAT PEOPLE All of us!

Hey, who brought the give away goodies? Was it Nelson again? NHT had the speakers and some drivers, but who provided the chips and Caps?

Ron
