Remember, I'm not the one who spec'd 25V for C1 & C2. I'm just wondering where everyone else was, including N.P. with this. I would not really expect to see more than 6V on the 100 and the pot||cap together. You need about 1V on the source R, 2Volts Vgs add some signal and mabe thats 2 more volts, and a little more for when the drive gets tough. But it's a pre. So a 6.3V might work but I'm not goin there. A 10V at min and I think thats doable. My 16V caps are 12.5mm and they fit but my 25V caps are all 18mm!

I used the 1000uF, 25V Silmic II and you are quite right, they don't fit. Doesn't look good but they sound just fine.
I had the same problem with the Silmics on the BA-2 board.
I'm getting used to my boards looking like Stone Henge.

Hey guys, I'm at a point where I need more gain in my system, especially for the digital front end. So, I'm thinking of adding the BA-3 at the output of the DCB1 (the current pre). My question is, can the BA-3 be used this way? From what I can tell, its output impedance is about 300 ohms and should be fine as a standalone preamp into amps other than the BA series.

standalone , yeah

that means DCB1 will be redundant

Yeah, but I'm thinking of just stuffing it in the same chassis... you know how much work a new chassis is.

I think I'll keep the DCB1.. it allows many inputs and does a good job of buffering the sources... Planning to put a switch to flip the BA-3 in and out of the system. I really don't need the gain for the analogue source (Pearl II).

Beyond its output impedance, it has su stantoal drive current, having no problem driving the BA output with an input Z of about 7500, if I remener correctly.

What would be cool, is if Salas came up with a hot rodded BA3 front end with one of his power supplies.
Then put the output stage in separate case with its own supply (eg CRC).

BA3 is my current favorite amp. Some diodes in the output seem a novel concept.
