Congratulations on your complete amplifier!

I must agree with the other posters, your case is very attractive and has a balance and proportion that is very harmonious.

Great build---- lovely work and vision. Someone once said, "A laborer works with his hands; a craftsman with his hands and mind, and an artist with his hands, mind and heart." Jpedro is an artist.

Anyone know if the F5 clone boards in the store have been updated with P3 and other changes in the circuit? The schematic in the store shows P3 but it doesn't appear to be pictured on the board.

I ordered and received F5 stock PCB few days ago, v2.20 and no P3 on board

Well, here's my latest F5 in operation -- I now have 8 F5's in operation including some for which I did the PCB's by hand -- this version has some stuff I've found necessary or helpful over the years -- I provisioned parallel surface mount JFETs -- pairs of mmbf5460/mmbf5457 which get you close to the J74/K170 and are very inexpensive -- P3 is there of course as well as mounting holes for paralleling in various source resistors.

I put some local capacitance on the board -- when testing these amplifier with long leads you invariably get some oscillation. The RFI mitigation cap and output zobel aren't strictly necessary until they become necessary.

I constrained the board dimensions so that it would fit in the chassis/cases which the DIYAUDIO store is offering, although I roll my own.
