Belated hello from Northants, England
Iíve been registered on here for a few years now but never posted. I was originally toying with the idea of building a Krell KSA50 clone using the boards from Jimís Audio but decided against it.

Now I fancy a go at building an F5 but not sure on which variant yet, although I am looking along the lines of more output devices and more power than standard trim.

Iíve done a little messing around with Naim equipment and Iím just finishing a new dual rail PSU to replace my old SNAPS to power my much fettled with NAC32. Also Iíve put together a dual mono NCC200 that sounded good to my ears, just fancy something a little different.

Iíve just about got half a clue of what Iím doing but plenty yet to learn!

Hi and a belated welcome to diyAudio :) make sure you check out the store if you are going to build an F5. The quality of the boards is excellent (I've a set of BA3 boards that I'm yet to find the time to start on).

Thanks Tony, I've already been checking out the "cviller" version. Just need to read some more of the documentation on the F5 and F5 Turbo to get a better understanding.

Hello Johnny.

Hi Johnny,
Nelson Pass has an F5 article on the First Watt website.
There are also many articles on the PassDIY website.
I got some red PCBs from Jims Audio and they were quite good. The parts in the kits are fair.
I'm planning to build a pair of balanced F5 turbo monoblocks to heat my home this winter.
Good luck with your project.
