Francois, how could I forget Here is a pic of the UGS preamp I am using with the UP's.
The clarity is extraordinaire. Gettin' rid of all those caps in the signal path; great stuff.
As usual its stable as a rock. Have a look at the offsets of the preamp.
Seems that I am heavily suffering from the spreading "UGS-effect"
I used a couple of Toole reg's , ofcourse running them as hard as I dare.
Thanks again for sharing these superb projects. I will like to say, that these are some of the easiest to build amps that I have made. Not in terms of simplicity in the cct's as such, but everything just works out right away in first shot. Amazingly well made circuits

Hi Steen,

Wow ! Another awesome piece of DIY !
Very very nice work (as usual, may I say)
Is this a Joshua Tree, or a Dantimax kit for volume ?
And thanks for your kind comments on the ease of building.

So... Did you have the opportunity to compare the ugs to the NS10, the famous orange cucurbitaceae, or something alike ?
Any comparison between the Toole's regs and the "regular regs" of the ugs ? (Something I MUST try, for sure)

And sorry for the ugs syndrom. I hope you'll find a relief someday

Happy listening,

Best.

Thanks, glad you like it
The Volume control and selectors are indeed the twisted guy's work, in a fully balanced setup. The Joshua tree works just fine.

I have compared to the X-CCS-BosoZ, NS10 and the B1. They all sound great with the UP (which is an easy job with as fine an amp as the UP ) But I do prefer the UGS. The combination is just splendid. I am certain that the UP+UGS-preamp will stay in the main system for a very long time

I have your series reg. boards on the working-bench right now. I will put them together and try them with the UGS. It will be interesting to see (hear) the difference from the shuntreg's. Also I would really like to hear your oppinion on a shuntreg if you build one for the UGS.

If they find a cure for the UGS-syndrome, I will not know of it

Guess most of you know but for those who don’t and are interested on the Tooleregs see this thread starting at post 180
Threshold NS10 Lineamp PCB

In the next days we will have a Wiki setup for a GB on the Compact version.

Cheers

Thanks Tony, you are too kind
Here is another shot of the rearplate with the volume control and input/output selector mounted. The reason for doing it this way, is ofcourse to maximize as much free space as possible, inside the case.
