I tried increasing r4 on both halves from 221k to 2x221k did not work.
Worth decreasing R1 to 10k ?

it must work , even if I wouldn't go to double value

you didn't make something right

In my understanding (perhaps flawed ) gain is set by a combination of feedback resistor,input resistor & resistor to ground.I rechecked their values and they are proper.
Increasing feedback resistor,decreasing input resistor (whatever I do) gives me additional 1VAC gain.

I must have done something wrong. Any other parts of the circuit that affects gain

ref. to original Pa's circuit , ratio of R4/R1 is defining CLG of amp

that's 221K/22K1

you can freely ignore R2 (221K) from that

Problem resolved...

I had explicitly grounded the daughter board to PSU.

I was trying out ARTA & it gave me a THD of 0.48% at 2.8V.
Generally I was unhappy

As part of fiddling process the ground wire came loose & to my surprise the THD dropped to .038%.

Whipped out my multimeter
Relative DC 12mV
Absolute DC -130mV
Gain 20dB

ARCHIMEDES MOMENT

Arta measurements attached

Hi Everyone,

I'd like to build the AX-J, and have Peter's boards. Is it possible to build with the following specs and parts. I have used the A-X v2 spread sheet, but would like to ask the experts if I'm doing something wrong.

Transformers are 14.25v secondary volts at 267VA. Basically building around these transformers because I have several. They are Amveco toroids and look well made. 130C, potted centers and thermal protection.

From spreadsheet:
Rectified voltage is ~20VDC
19v at mosfets. .55A per mosfets.
8 mosfets per channel.
8 ohm is 24W output.

Spread sheet says Factor 3 is 251W. Factor 1 is 167W. Not sure what "factor" means.
Dissipation per channel 84W
Dissipation stereo 167W


Is the 20 volts provided too low?
I'd be willing to lower the current through the mosfets, if it helps.

Thanks,

Vince

wow, I was not aware of any of Peter's boards still being around. I gave up the idea of converting my PD Aleph30 to AJ and started planning on building F4s instead w/ a tbd preamp (probably BA-3 FE). still, if I had AJ boards I might be tempted to try a quick conversion over the same footprint on the heatsinks.
