Maybe Mr Beyer can use someone who can introduce him to visit Mr Transrotor in Germania.

ZM,

Very Ugly

But when the lights are turned down, ugly girls provide pleasure same as beautiful ones.

Yeah, it's sad when quality suffers in the name of profit

Just to report to all you pumpkin builders: After BAF world wide Pumpkin presentation, I took it to my cave...

I did adjustment per Choky's instructions. I do not have F4 and wanted to drive my Aleph 30 so I needed to lower value for two resistors and voila!

I did had a brief listen at BAF but I wouldn't take that seriously. Now I had it set up and I had my X BOSOSZ to compare to. It is unbelievable difference. Do not take me wrong - I still like my X BOSOZ, but I was just speechless once I heard amount of top detail from Pumpkin. I was amazed how come that I didn't miss all that detail before? I do not know but it is like Pumpkin has opened whole another dimension on the top of the spectrum. It is very detailed and bright amp. When I say bright not in the negative way, and amazingly there is still very strong and deep bass.

My pumpkin is still based on make shift XBOSOZ power supply while I am waiting for Shanty boards. This pumpkin has special value! It was constructed by Choky, Anatech, Magura and myself. I am afraid to change it since it might loose its international flair.

There is a special shielded wire that Magura and Anatech called Wire from Hell, but they still succeeded in completing it for the BAF.
I will be trying different caps in output to see how it will affect sound. I would strongly advise to try this preamp for F4 or any other amp. It is just unrealistically good.
