I went out and bought the May issue. I am translating the article into modern standard Neanderthal as we speak. So far I understand that water goes down the drain, through the gate(valve) and becomes the source of many fine sounds. The rest is still magic. But since I can barbeque on a rock, I feel competent to build this amp.

Those little things are homes for magic genies
so long as they are kept inside, they work their magic.
But if one escapes (looks like smoke) then things stop working

Wow! I ordered a brand spanking new subscription and already got the May issue. I haven't had time to sit down and read it yet, but it is indeed sitting on my desk right now.

You definitely need to sit your postman down and have a little "chat".

Hello everyone,

Sorry to be annoying but that's funny how no one did give a damn about the Profet schematic in it's time despite the rave reviews by audioXpress... So it's all by a well-known french designer named Plantefeve and he's got a nice website about amplifiers too. So, as he was somehow the first to introduce this design, I invite you to have a look at his page. Just to give him a little thumb up for that. And yes, he also has a low impedance feedback version of it...

Just my 2 cents

Thanx

that's how things works ;

anyway - for curious ones , Profet and Plantefewe's work is well known ;

you'll see (if you search) that his schematics are sorta often cited here

in any case - hat is certainly often off , regarding work of eccentric French constructeurs .......

not to mention that you have some of nicest loudspeakers in recent history ..... (meaning on Cabasse oldies, Triangle , Supravox, Fertin)
