People 'round these parts will make you an amp out of a paper clip, tooth paste and a ball of twine if that's all they had. Bring it on!!!

I didn't mean to offend all the MacGyvers out there.
Your talking to someone who buys surplus heat sinks and mostly used music. Of course I pretend/try to be eco-concious...but really cheap cheap at heart

Default F5 is great poweramp

Few days ago, I complete my F5 project based on only this thread's info.
Now I use it, I can simply say it's great amp!!

The change point:

1. Power Voltage is 19V, bias is now set for 0.8A.
2. do not use R15,R16,TH1,TH2.
3. Q5 is changed to 2SA1020, Q6 is changed to 2SC2655

My impression:
1)Easy to set bias and very stable
I made ZV5 with JFET inputs before, but F5 is more stable.
That's very important point for PassDIY beginner I think.
I was very scared the bias setting of ZV5, but now I am not.

2)Very tight bass, clear mid and high
I prefer the sound of F5 than ZV5 with JFET inputs.

Now I'm happy with my F5.
Thank you for Mr.Pass, Your amplifier stimulated my creation mind.

Default F5 specs

How noisy is the amps, is it close(r) to F3 (100uV, rather noisy when driving 106db horns) or to F2 (dead silent)?

Still have no idea about power and other spec (except that it is all more of everything.....), but i reckon i'll have to wait for the AXP article to come in the mail box or wait until it appears in FisRtWatt web site. Both fine

Regards

Maybe I missed this, but what are people using for jfets? I can't seem to locate a source for the 2SJ108. Will a Fairchild j108 do? Mouser has them.

Thanks

I imagine many people will be using 2sk170/2sj74.

Cheers,
Dennis
