Hi Nelson,

Yes, I Ďm using the 2sk170 and 2sj74 they are BL and the Idss is 6.89 in a cool environment out of the chassis. So they should creep up a bit with heat.

I have the 330 ohm load and 22 ohms on the drains. Iím not complaining, I didnít want the THX sticker anyway. Iím just trying to figure out how it works. Iíll run some distortion measurements and report back.

Thanks,

Not to despair, I will put it online very shortly after. In the meantime,

this is what I was referring to when I said "But we can hope for a little spin on things can't we?"
My system's balanced, so I'm MORE than delighted!!!!

Are we going to be able to mod it using Store boards? They tend to be a little cleaner than what I come up with.

I don't know how different they will be. So don't know if you can mod the store boards or if we'll come up with new ones.

Nelson really likes surprises , so he doesn't tell me either..

If he current store boards ca nbe modded then each board would only do one channel, so you would need 2 boards for 2 ch balanced.

Probably can''t be done as there will be new components that tie the two together. Just didn't know if it was known ahead of time and the boards were made with the change in mind.

Well, yeah, I'm sure some traces would need to be cut, but extra components can be used to connect the two sides probably.. ehh we'll just have to be patient- like Christmas. We'll make a new optional version if it is too complicated but that takes a while. .

If there is to be another set of boards can I put in a request on behalf of those of us who are using Elna SilmicII. 1000uF 25V are just a little too wide for the current front end boards.

It's a simple mod to the existing board. No trace cutting.
