Not only that, it also reads 0.02% at 20W if my eyes don't desert me. This is examplary performance with no fb. I don't know how Nelson comes up with these schemes, but he picks winner after winner. My virtual hat goes off for him.

This thing is realy fascinating for me.
But there shurely is a huge problem, how can i build this by myself?

Mr. Pass you realy know what patience and endurance are, do you?

It's the parts.

So far I only have the one, as it takes about 12 hours
to stuff it up, and I have 3 more to go.

Of course I still have to build a front end for it, so we'll see
what the final result might be.

If you want to think really tweaky, here's the 8 ohm
curve on a pair of car batteries:

As a follow DIYer, I'll be more interested if it will be a similiar project using thousands of N-jfet in single-ended setup.
Even if it take twice the number of Jfets to get the same output power and the THD is slightly higher.
Of course N-jfet has much lower capacitance, so for a set amount of output power, SE setup might actually have lower capacitance load for the front-end.

Unless the LSJ74 is released, then it will be a different story.

I need 3 weeks to find 2 pcs sj74 in my local (indonesia) market, N Jfet is far far easier

Ohh, starting to sound like my paralell LU1014s in B1 configuration... Like Mosnter B1??? But as John Curl might like to read, lower Rg!!!

Papa are we going to see this in BA09? It would be a big attraction.

I start to see a big jfet group by now... 1000 pcs per person, and we will get a better rate if we reach a 100K lot

BTW, I have a batch of Sony 2SK82 and 2SJ28's coming in.

Does anyone know the pinouts on them?
