Achievement Unlocked: 75 Watt Class A Zero Feedback SIT Circlotron

Soft clipping at 75W

Because of the high input capacitance of the 2SK180’s and the gain of this circuit, we have to pull out all the stops to get our 75W beast to make audio bandwidth. Here you can see that each SIT is getting its own transformer and buffer.

The topic of JFET and MOSFET matching comes up often in the forums, so I thought I'd show you the jigs I use.

First up, is my trusty old JFET IDSS matcher.

There's a 9V battery inside, and the meter probes are conneted across a 10 Ohm resistor which is connected to the JFET drain. I included a polarity switch for convenience when testing P channel parts.

It's pretty easy to connect the microclips, count to five, and take a reading.

And here's what I use for the big stuff. This is my MOSFET Vgs matcher.

First, I install a sample part and let it warm up for about an hour. There's a thermistor hot-glued to the heat sink,...
