The question is: Does the fly operate in class A? The rod is after all a push/pull device...

think about decreasing output resistors to ~ 22E , from 47 as they are now ;
OK, anything else I should be changing?

don't forget to take cans off the head , if BG's need little burning in
I was wondering about it too. Let's say I want to double the Iq, what values should I be considering?

roughly speaking .........


halving all mosfet source resistors ;

so - R11 & R16 to 15~18E , R12/R26 & R17/R28 to 330//240E (all that in Pumpkin)


so - that also need changes in Shunty - besides xformer capable to give ~ 82Vct/800mA minimum for stereo , all heatsinks twice thermally capable ( that applicable for Pumpkin too ) and decreasing R7/R7a to 2E4 (Shunty)


in that case you'll double present current hunger of Pumpkin/Shunty combo , which is ~140mA/channel

so - you'll have preamp drawing 82V x 0,28A x 2 =46VA ......

more than some hifi DrekMKXX SE^2 amps

anyway - it's up to you to choose what's best for your ears
This is not a problem... no difference between soundsonics of 10xgain and 20xgain

Actually, i am not having trouble, with the gain anymore, it was just an idea i have, that maybee someone else was gainhungry like me too ! ... I allready adjusted the gain to my need's... I see ofcause that the phono-pre, can't be playing as loud as i would like it to, with a gain of 20x, but it's good enough for now.

I realise, that this is not the right place to ask, about howto calculate such thing's as X-feedback OLG, CLG... etc... seem's that anyone else but me, understand's this.

I am going to study these technicue's in future... regarding gain/loop etc... that i don't understand quite well... And maybee (can't promise) i will try the meassuring ZenMod suggested.

Anyway, in next few day's.... sneakpreview of my inputselector

Greeadylykkedk.... yes i am

Jesper.

I wonder...did steen ever get caught with his flies undone???

the real question, choky OLD chap....my F4 sings with my squeezebox and I can only get the volume up half way....this means that thinking about pumpkin is idling away the time for no good reason???
