Concerning that fancy pants shunt regulator....

Is it absolutely necessary?

Is it responsible for the magic?

Could one get away with a pass style bosoz regulated psu - especially since one has a few kicking around?


P.S. Hey, where's the mob that want's this pre? Wait, I know..... You are on thier ignore list!

you don't need that fancy reg for functioning, but remember that you need two supplies, + and - 36V........

you can use pass style reg, fer sure.........

I'm sure that you'll hear difference later,if you choose to make shunt regs, instead series ones.
as our friend Lucky Luke..........

mob......... if ya think on few lazy blood suckers and ego maniacs , guy like that blood sucker isn't capable to made Pumpkin without help of entire community even with pcbs ..........and to guy like this I'll never ever sell or give any pcb....
regarding ego maniac.......... nah....I already spent too much typing on first guy........

I didnt hear an Aleph P yet, but I beleive it to sound a bit like the BoZ/BosoZ family, so my shot at a comparison with the Pumpkin is that the Pumpkin will have a more extended topend with better details. This will result in a better soundstage in both width and depth Together with an assumed silkysmooth pleasant sound (J-fet-signature!) that is reason enough to pick the Pumpkin But thats all just speculations on my part, until our man, ZM gets the pcb's on the road
The shuntreg has the effect of a thin curtain being pulled away. At least when I have used a shuntreg, it had an open and direct sound. Like its a bit less "fuzzy" sounding than whatever its compared to. I am surely gonna need a few extra shuntreg-boards.

That was one of the weirdest incidents that I have seen here.
Kinda like a mad dog, biting off the hands of the one that feeds it

dunno......
I also didn't hear P, but I presume that xccswtf??! BOSOZ is pretty close,or even better with right physical execution;

P is sorta one stage (even if simetric) and Pumpkin is certainly two stage affair.

lookin at later Papa's preamp characteristics , they are certainly sorta UGS-ish (full X (up-down & left-right symetric ) or just half X (Half UGSish) simetric , like I made Pumpkin , so they must be at least two stage also;
I expect that Pumpkin isn't worse than P

better............ fer sure - with shunts.

Yes, I certainly believe you that it's better - I just need to get my brain around how it works. Also, it would turn a 1 year project into a 2 year project (I have lots of time at the PC- little time in shop); but it looks like an ideal upgrade path...


Steen please feel free to ignore my F4 and AlephP questions
