I found the thread and request 4 pcs. I don't have time to read the entire thread this morning, but will tonight after work.

This looks like fun!
I enjoy audio so much that I constructed a web site. I share my ideas at:

Might the Semisouth Jfet be a worthwhile upgrade in the Zen V4? Q1 and possibly Q2?

Yes. I think you can shoehorn it into any place you would
use an N channel power Mosfet, and I expect (but don't
guarantee) lower distortion for every case.

Mr. Pass, lower distortion aside, do they have their own signature sound? I don't know if such a thing even exists for other gain devices.

In simple circuits, I think low distortion has its own signature,
probably by virtue of comparison with other simple circuits
that have higher distortion.

I think it sounds like a fine amplifier, but more relaxed than
your average solid state.

Due to only N devices avaible today, my first application is in a circlotron topology with gain.

Other good usage for me is in circuit as F xx or as Zen xx together Vfets, but in this moment i have some doubt about which devices to use as main voltage amplifier and which to use as CCS.

Can't be too wrong to start somewhere around their. will ask cviller at BA-3 what's going on with those front end boards.
Yes, some iteration of the BA-1 would be great as I prefer balanced signal path most of the way to the speakers...

Maybe a circlotron output to try that with FETs 'cause it can sound awesome with tubes (check Atma-sphere).
