Well that's simple. Just connect the source directly to the amp
and see if it's loud enough for you.

OK. Didn't think of that. I guess that's why you have a company named after you and I don't.



I'll warn my wife first.

Thanks, Mr. Pass (I don't feel comfortable calling you 'Nelson')!

OK. Tried that. Very loud.

I guess I wouldn't have a problem running the B1. Thanks for your suggestion!

Why thank you.

No, no larger color pics. I had a color 8 x 10 but some years ago I gave it to a friend to scan for me and he lost it. I still have a 4 x 5 color transparency here somewhere and I may get that professionally scanned someday. But for now, I just have an 8 x 10 black and white.

Here's a larger black and white.

Back to B1 ...


Could I omit CRC filter with 15000 uF caps if I use shunt regulated power supply?

Yes, you can. Although it won't hurt to place some capacitance to the supply rail.
