A quote from The F5T article:

One thing that many will appreciate is the addition of P3, which due to inattention on my part was not public until recently. It allows the adjustment of the distortion character between complete nulling of the second harmonic distortion to an arbitrary ratio of second to third harmonic. It definitely alters the sound, and reaffirms that things going on below 0.1% are audible. In any case, you can adjust it to taste.

Did you try that?

Default Pre Amp?

Norb

What a build. The case looks very solid.

I noticed after a few days of listening that the F5T sounds a little bright with my Thiels. Despite the hum from the pre amp, it does sound very good. As I have replaced all the coupling caps with Jensens, it has that characteristic mellow sound, which I like.

I read that the B1 is very neutral so I am not sure whether it would fit my gear and listening taste.

Thanks for the suggestion and sharing. Really great work in routing all the wires.

Thanks very much, Mr. Pass and Mr. Colburn.

..... and yes, the case was the hardest part.

Default P3

I read this in the Pass manual too :-). However, I haven't tried adjusting yet. From my recollection, even harmonics are 'good' and should improve the listening pleasure. However, I am not sure if my ears are as sensitive as Nelson's.

Anyway, the amps sounds so good currently .... why mess around with something that is already perfect, right !!!

Bridge mode is the way to go. The sound really opens up and bass extension is ... well .... out of this world.

Hey, is speaker protection using the upc1237 realiable? Any one using these successfully? How do the relays affect the sound?

Oh ... I need to rush as I am F5T'ing.... ha ha... even harmonics and all ....

Default Mellow Sound

Dear TC,

maybe the A75 would be an option for you, as you can alter the sonic characteristic of this amp in a large range.

I tried different values for some components as suggested in the A75 article (feed-back amount and folded cascode operation) and the amp could be made very mellow and softly sounding (Speakers are Isophon Europa).

Since i´m more the rocking kind, i set up the amp in the opposite soundwise, but the difference in sound characteristic was amazing, espacially voices and classical music could be made like honey: sweet, soft and golden.
