Glad to hear that...
I have thought I'm only one feeling so...
I already said that I would not give up both F4 and (F5)...
Yeah, sure I am...

Question Why?

This could be the coolest amp ever!

If it's push-pull, how does it comapre to the single-ended stuff?
Aside from some pretty nice specs, how does the F5 sound? Not many can comment on this right now, but can anyone explain why this PP is worth building besides the simplicity, higher power and gained effeciency? That might be enough for some, but the Zen series had a philosphy. Is this some new break-thru in PP technology?

I've heard some nice PP amps, but none of it compared to the SE amps I've heard.

Please comment,

Vince

Nelson had released a ghost from a bottle, when he wrote about "single-ended nature" of air compression/distortion

Yep: fewer stages plus mild feedback AND low distortion.

My man Jacco!

That's what I mean...why is the F5 all of a sudden special? All known stuff with a twist!

Nelson has this ability to take known "techniques" or topologies and make You look at them in a completely different way. There's an open-mindedness and genius about that. Making something simple seem hard and visa-versa.

This cheap to build, yes.

Audio is like underwear, the color/fabric may vary but trend cycles keep repeating and it's hard to think up something really new for lowering Johnson's noise.

He is an excellent salesman and excellent in promoting, and that counts.
