Default ZM's (not) F5 thread

well .... reasons for this thread are obvious ;

feel free to write anything , except questions how to improve your F5 ;
please don't rant about lazy greenhorns , not willing to read numerous anaconda F5 threads .

hey - you can even write here why you don't have any F5 ( even if you build one )



( and if some lazy greenhorn shows here , asking how to bias bloody thing , I'll shoot him , personally )

I don't have an F5.

I'm still playing with simpler designs... hoping to graduate to F5 one day.

naah

not good enough

it will give just 7.8db of gain

not worth hassle with iron ;

if you can squeeze more gain ..... then I vote for Iron or Dust

btw - why Musical Fidelity 4 ?



( agree for muzak)
