Have you compared your J2 clone with an F5 clone?

Yes and I like the sound of the Semisouth in the J2 clone much more, so I am happy Nelson gives us the F6 in some time.

And the combination of the Semisouth and the M2 like iron interstage could be a dream......!

The J2 circuit has never been available, has it? How could you build a good clone? So I guess the F6 circuit is welcomed.

Yes you are right!

It were always bad clones....!

And I believe it is not really possible to clone the J2 even if you had the circuit, because it has extreme matching demands.....!

I am not speaking of Zen Mods Babelfish J2, because this circuit has precautions to handle less matched devices.

But the discussion is in my eyes a bit futile, because F6 is a real gift from Nelson, soon available and fully described and a so interesting combination of the advantages of J2 and M2!

F6 idea is electrifying me......Thanks Mr. Pass, depression gone....!

The F6 should be very interesting. I hope it isn't just a low power amp for chamber music but able to drive real world speakers with a bit of slam.

I suppose it is again a MU follower constellation, so I would suppose similar values like J2, means

around 25W for 8 Ohm speakers and about 14W to 4 Ohm speakers....

The good pronunciation could come with the iron and the subtle part from the Semisouth....

@labjr

just looking at concept (without knowing Pa's intentions - how far he intend to hold our trembling hands ) I presume that only your wallet and your courage are deciding factors , in chase for volts/amps on output

well - looking at first post schmtc , it isn't

xformer is phase splitting device here ........ so - type of outputs modulation is already chosen

of course that you can drive lower one as presented , with upper one connected in Mu fashion

design permutations are countless .......... as Papa said several times

Thank you Zen Mod!

I am not yet accustomed to phase splitters and must learn to recognize them....
