Hi all,

I was doing some checks prior to firing up my Mesmerize and I noticed that the outputs are shorted to ground. It seems as though the relay on the outputs is closed. The three inner sets of pins on the relay have continuity. None of the input relays are like this. Is this normal? I've gone over the board looking for shorts and can't find any.

Thanks,

Mark

When off its shorting the output to ground. When on it restores signal line continuity.

Default IRFP244 instead of IRFP240?

Would there be any ill effect if I use IRFP244 instead of IRFP240?

Theoretically no. But I haven't used it.

Matched 2SK170-BL pairs

Hi Guys, I've been a forum member for about a year and a half but have been a bit low profile so far.

I've just finished a Gainclone using boards from Brian GT and have now embarked on a Mezmerise. Can anyone point me to a UK/EU source for matched 2SK170-BL pairs? (Andrew T maybe?). Thanks.

AndrewT supplied me with sets for the DCB1 a while back but whether he still does I'm not sure.Best bet would be to pm him.
Failing that Spencer is a good guy to deal with and supplies well matched fets and delivery is usually pretty quick.

Default Looking to regulate a class "A" power amp, F5

I was wondering about using IRFP044N for the positive regulator and doing an upside down positive reg for the negative side. I want to use the IRFP044N due to the current they pass or should I just do a cap multiplier like Juma uses?
+/-+/-

Use a multiplier, its going to be a very hot reg if shunt for F5. Has to cater for PEAK current plus margin. You can see how to use NMOS for positive in SSHV1 & 2.

I'm using an R-Core transformer from diyclub and am wondering how the secondaries should be twisted together, if at all.

The model I have is R26-34 with 9V and 15V secondaries. Each secondary has four wires, 2x blue and 2x grey for 15V. As I understand it I should connect one blue and one grey wire together to create a 0V center tap. Should I twist these together? Or do I twist each color seperately and simply connect the blue and grey together at the PCB?

--------- 1x blue
xxxxxxx 1x blue + 1x grey
--------- 1x grey

xxxxxxx 2x blue
>1x blue + 1x grey
xxxxxxx 2x grey


Also, for the primaries, is it beneficial to twist the hot and neutral wire together?
