Rightly so, buyers of the top-dollar drawer do not favor their items on nude display at the giftshop bottom shelf.

On the other hand, fur coats are interesting only if the hurd recognises the animal outside, or outside animal.

If you hang out in the Solid State forum, they will be happy to explain to you
that everything is feedback. That said, whether it is local depends on how
far away from which it came.

Loosely based on Claydon's '09 epic work, but filmed in an art-decoish setting, very mondain and plushy storyline (sponsored by Kleenex, so I gathered).
A masterpiece of cinematography, and highly relaxing.

A large part of the gay female circle has elements of Tran-Sylvia.

For Xs info, takes patience and sticking a finger through the cage, hoping it will be squeezed for ripeness.
Are you leaking next bond film. Goldfish.

No, I don't believe this.
IMHO there is an UGS6-module inside of XP30.
May be the Xs-PreAmp has a similar circuit topology like the front end of Xs-PowerAmp

I was just informing what the link reported. Its OK which came first; the XP-30 or Amp Xs; as long as their circuits are similar.

My long-experience with Papa is that things turn out way simpler than initially thought. (simpler not interchangeable with simple)

Another acquired finding, from observations over recent decades, is that the most basic and least pretentious often better describes the most complexed of matters. (cerebral jump : in time, gossip tabloids and low-budget movies indeed show reality clearer than e.g. the NYT and Oscar winners. MiB)

Example, the Xs shows plates and wires (few plates, many wires)
You find the aluminum plates interesting, but not the wires that run directly from each pole (much more on the 300, than in the Xs-150)
Xs for X-Special, or X-simple ?

(more the type to stand in line at the box office, in a trenchcoat with a skunk fragrance, looking at bottoms)

jacco vermeulen. Post #94 by Zen Mod showed the clearest picture of the PCB entitled "Concept Amp R0, 2009 Pass Labs; Made in U.S.A. Each of the twenty above TOSHIBA Complementary Enhancement MOSFETS MAY reside on its private small heat sinks thereon. At the center of this PCB appears to be an interesting find. There are many resistors lying in the plane of the PCB; but most importantly note those 6 upright rectangular components [ black] among them. Each rectangular component has 6 legs; clearly labeled on the PCB as G [2] and D [2] Thus each rectangular component MAY be comprised of two similar or complementary TO-92 JFETS; glued together; possibly for optimal thermal tracking and/or boosting Idss.

Best regards

I call them 7-legged trenchcoats.

Also note the six tallest blue rectangular components on the PCB; taller than the trimpots. They maybe capacitors. I accidentally stumbled on their look alikes on the chipamp.com site. They were 0.1 uF polymer as shown in the LM3886 chip amp kit.
