Does anyone have a copy of the Concise Guide? The hosting website is no longer functioning.

Hi folks,

As a few people have noticed, my old sounds.wa.com domain is gone. Long live audiobanshee.com! Note: I edited the first post to correct the link.

Question phase reversal

As I age I need to ask for help from younger minds: is there a Nelson Pass design that leaves the final phase inversion to the user (reversing black and red speaker terminals)? I found no mention in this guide but I have this notion that there is one...BOZ maybe?

Good point!

I just wanted to know if, like some Conrad Johnson designs, NP came up w one and similarly concluded it was simpler to have the user do the last phase inversion.

If I do that, I label the output terminals so that the user will connect the
positive of the speaker to the "red" and negative to the "black" and then
I tell them about it in the manual in case they are connecting something
else to the loudspeaker and need to know who is Ground.

Very nice. Straight to the point.
There are quite a few designs that are missing though.
"If you leave this point unattached to some circuitry, an ideal constant current source will emit a small lightning bolt which will travel until it connects to something." Nelson Pass

Looks like it hasn't been updated for a while. Perhaps we are at the point where a Wiki guide to all the circuits with links to forum posts containing circuits of interest would be beneficial to all? I know I am curious about more than one circuit which has a thread running to hundreds of pages...
