Tom, yes. it works, tighter Bass with a touch more drive.

Thanks chris, i just bought a whole wack load of parts, pretty much quantitys of 40& Up for each item, ie plugs panel mount and solderable ones, stand off's leds resistors etc etc Now to find a knob for this chassis.


I still REALLY like this one tho,

If I get brave I will post my prototype chassis...still need to build the nice one. It's open so that parts swaps are easy.

All, Did we come to a consensus to modify the values of R102, R104, R202 & R204 from 1K to 221ohm for improved sound? Thanks, Tom

would greatly appreciate your reasoning for lower the values. since there
is no gain, I'm scratching my head as to why the lower values help.

are these lower resistor values dependent on coupling cap values?

thanks

Bengali,

Lower values of R104 and R204 provide a lower output impedance with the risk of oscillations if you go too low.

best regards,
psz.

Default Newbie question- conceptual rather than DIY

I am rebuilding a system after a number of years out of the hobby. I am interested in the B1 but I want to understand why it improves sound quality. I have heard the pre to passive difference. I understanding their is no gain in the B1 and impedance matching is the goal but please read on.

Take two scenarios-Cd player to B1 to amp VS Cd to integrated amp. My understanding is that typical Cd player (not tubed or nos, correct me please) has a typical output impedance of .3 to .5K. The B1 as originally designed has an output impedance of 1K although some have modded it to have a .1 to .2K final resistor.

My understanding is that a 50K pot would be fairly typical for an integrated amp. So would not the Cd player to intergated amp be capable of driving longer interconnects? Is the 50K pot in the intergrated amp to a inch or two of wire to the following electronics the issue?

I am not questing Mr Pass or anyone here. A involved electronics explanation would go over my head but i would appreciate someone getting me into the ballpark. Thanks John

Ill try this, soon, Im having hard time looking for the 1ohm@3watt resistor, im not buying 10 or more only need 1 and im not spending 30$ for 2 15,000uf caps either.

I will change / modify the values of R102, R104, R202 & R204 from 1K to 221ohm to see if there is a difference.

I have a bag of ~100 that probably has ~90 left. The are KOA Speer (Kiwame)...send me a pm with your address.
