That is a problem with e-mail and such - no personal interaction to let you know what is serious and what is not. I am not a serious person, and now that my wife stopped reading this thread I can make fun of her too.

Please continue, and do not worry about a thing.
believe me or not , now I feel relief

then please - exactly from reasons you wrote above - use here and there some smiley , so some non native English speaker can grasp more realistic shades of your expressions

regarding Babysitters - Papa's amps are worthy trouble to make a few ..... and it's certainly better when you can put a hand on heatsink indefinitely ; my main goal is always - preserving those precious speakers any possible trouble - even in distant future .
I don't care as much for amp internal parts (caps etc.) longevity alone.

Actually it was a lot worse than that photo shows. I helped Joe mount the driver in the small baffle earlier, played my hi-res music for so his speakers sounded good, and helped put things away afterwards. Joe is a great guy, and I would help in any way I could.

See that ZM! Not a mean bone in my body.

Thanks Jon for these very interesting and nicely written impressions. I get the feeling that this adventure is becoming more and more exciting.

Oh, wifey is not a problem at all. Let her fall in love with the sound of your gear, do not build horn loudspeakers the size of sequoia trees and allow her to place some doilies, ivy plant pots or something onto your speakers.

Hi Jon the bass with S2 may be deeper than J2 and less deep than F1J because of the damping factor.......with your (and mine) Tiny Open Baffle

J2. 0,4 Ohm

S2. 3 Ohm

F1J. 60 Ohm

What this tells me is that there are no sharp edges, i.e. ringing and other artifacts that can create a the false impression of speed. These cause listener fatigue, and it was not there.
Excuse me Jon that I use your words, that is a quality I feel present also with the new BA-3 stage. It was very irritating at the beginning for me.

May be partially a result of non-feedback.....

Default Come Listen

So if you are interested in this amp, it will be in room 1007 at RMAF. Since there are only 3 in captivity, this may be your only chance. Drop by, introduce yourself, and enjoy some music. Then feel free to write your own impressions.

Thumbs up Class A SIT amps

The first production Class A SIT amps will soon be available.

from Reno HiFi


November 14, 2011

First Watt News: The much anticipated First Watt SIT/ Static Induction Transistor amps will be available in early January. The S-2 is a stereo amp with 10 WPC will list for $5000. The S-1 monoblocks are 10 WPC with control knob and meter for a list price of $10,000 a pair. A short but titillating 6moos article is here: 6moons audio reviews: Nelson Pass' NewWatt As of the moment, there is no other information about First Watt SIT amps, but more information will be released when the amps are in regular production.
