Sapphire it's sapphire here and everywhere. "Zafiro" would be in spanish but "Sapphire" looks more cool ;-)

Then, there's no bias tune up? Reading older posts and your manual y thought it was.
Zobel filter have no adjustement too? (I was solder everything opcional, zobel filter and all capacitators).

Here it some photos; many thanks and greetings!!

Ok, I will rotate the heatsinks; thanks for the advice

Rca's where from Audiophonics (Audiophonics - Câbles, Amplificateurs et Accessoires DIY), a French shop. They have a lot of hifi items but the shipping costs are expensive, so the idea is to join some hobby friends and make one order.

Embases RCA - ELECAUDIO ER-105 Embase RCA isolée PTFE (la paire)

Last thing : Does the Zobel filter have necessity to adjust?
Thanks again an greetings!

No, it's fine as it is.

I only mention tuning because you can adjust it if you want to.

Now get some nice Ft3s at 0,22uF and bypass the K75-10 and you will lose you mind with the sound

From the color of your NOS capacitors, I m getting that they are paper in oil or something like that. Most likely of the K75 variety. This is a VERY nice capacitor with dreamy mids, but it tends to roll off highs and lows a bit.

When you start to get an itch to upgrade, check ebay for FT-3 capacitors. These are the best of the russian NOS and they are available in 0.47uF.
Bypassing is putting another capacitor in parallel with the main, to alter its behavior. But since there are already 0.47 FT-3s you can just replace them and not worry about bypassing and stuff.
Here is a link for you
Russian Teflon Capacitor FT-3 0.47uF 470nF 200V 1pc. or more | eBay

Nice build

Thanks!
At the moment, it's in burn-in process but with LCD2 or K501 sounds very good
