Great circuit porn...

How hard are those output devices biased? ~5W per device?

And how does this sound different to fewer devices biased harder?

I'm a bit puzzled... the mantra in this forum seems to be higher current equals lower distortion, but does this still apply when the current is shared between many devices... ?

Depends on the language the review should be in. Image Hifi (1/2008) in Germany has a nice review of the XA30.5 that also includes an "informal" review of the firstwatt F3. And the excellent LP Magazin (2/2008) - also in Germany - has a nice review of the new Pass Int 150. And as a bonus it has a picture of the latest (?) UGS modules that reveals the new cascoding devices

What are the plastic tabbed TO-220-ish devices edge-on to the camera?

Hi Grey,

have a look in my schematic (AX-PP-SE (v2)) in the Aleph-X builder's thread!

:-)

Regards
Dirk

Sorry, meant the specific devices. One of the pictures appears to show a C, which leads me to think they're bipolars. I'm always open to suggestions for different critters to play with.
