Twisting words and meanings in a perverted sort of way. Just enough for to convince yourself that in this site you are attacked instead of being praised (or “believed”).

Just for you http://www.jensen-transformers.com/as/as019.pdf This started life with an NE5534 and seems some one just plugged in a newer chip. However when I built one it didn't work correctly. So I'll leave it open as to how many folks can suggest how to improve this circuit.

I really don't understand why you would need a DC servo (even two) in this transformer coupled setup. You can null any DC offset using pins on the AD797.

Elaborate on didn't work correctly. I helped Mitch Cotter with a similar problem (if it's what I think). You need a turn on catcher for the Ib comp network (the one the user can't see).

Mr. Cheesy Weezy in the little Squeezy,

might as well take the opportunity to inquire what your stance is on DC servoing ?

Gpapag, you don't need to be insulting to me specifically. I expressed my criticism in general, from my point of view.
I do my best to put up with, as well as understand any criticism put up here.

You made me ring the bell.
When it comes to thick aluminium for front panels, there are many out there (cosmetics and “feel”).
The possible technical reasons for mm of aluminium in home audio gear have been discussed here for good and in a technical manner.
The “aviation grade’ and the tens cm thickness were criticized.
RF sections in avionics (antennas input) and broadcasting (“ball receivers” within repeater stations) have to be housed into chambers and channels machined into billets of aluminium. But there, the RF fields for which the electronics are to be shielded from, measure in kV/m

Thx-RNMarsh

Well, you could flip it around if you're on 120vac mains with a dual 120vac primaries. In either event, you'd be in 'violation' of Menno Vanderveen's US patent # 6087822. This is used in the Torus conditioners from Bryston.
It worked quite well on the primaries of an overspecified r-core powering a dac.
