Default Pass ONO or XONO PCB???

Hi there,

I am looking to build the ONO so, looking for a PCB board for it. I know the Pearl 2 is coming out, but I have and use LOMC and need the ONO as it can handle the LOMC...

Does anyone know where I can find some of the ONO Boards

Thanks
Tuan

In case you're not lucky to get Ono-boards, a pearl with step-up transformer can be a wonderful thing.

Have fun, Hannes

Try rstaudio in Germany. Ralph Stens supplies excellent boards.

Hi gotoma8;
Ralph Stens is at DIY Audio Projects .His site is in both German & English. My build using his boards is sitting powered up on the dining room table waiting for final adjustments. I hope to be listening to it over the weekend.
Regards
Keith

Hi Keith; It has been a couple of months since you powered up your Ralph Sten Xono, so how does it sound? Hopefully you havenít burned a hole in your table. I only ask as I plan to try one of his boards.
Cheers; Glenn

I am more than satisfied; it just keeps sounding better and better! The Xono is a big improvement over the JLH phono I was previously using.I did not use the onboard 317 regulators opting for VBE boards from Avondale Audio here in the UK although I believe Woodturnerfran has built one and used Sala's shunt regs[DCB1].I am currently using it single ended. I've yet to try balanced output.
Build one you will not be dissapointed and Ralph Stens pcb's are excellent quality.

Keith

Hi,

I support Marra's suggestion for using the boards from Ralph. They are very nice, sond good and give you very good options for experimenting with the output coupling caps as well as not using them at all. His explanations and instructions are good as well.

piccie of my build using them below, almost there...

regards
joris

Hi Joris; are those Blackgates on the output of yours? Did you try to adjust and take them out? I could never get a stable low reading so I left my Wima's in place.

Hi Keith,

yes those are black gates, pk series. it's what i had in stock and for now it suffices (they are quite nice actually). Adjustment worked just fine for me but i have not experimented with it yet. To get stable offset i'd suggest linking the output fet's thermally. just use some aluminum or copper sheet and isolate electrically like you would in a power output stage. that should help. same thing goes for the 9110d's (i think) in the inverted stage.

I did match everything including the output fet's for vgs btw.

regards,
Joris
