calculate

max output swing is ....

or - even better and easier - L'Amp is hawing how much Watts at output at 8R ...

then divide that power with Rbleed/8R ratio



(put 3W in case of 150-220R)

(or put 3 x 1K plain metal films in parallel and chill ).........

The amp ideally shouldn't be turned on and off without a speaker connected anyway. The schematic includes an 8 ohm load at the output.

When you try to measure DC at the output without a speaker and or bleeder resistor connected, you are measuring the voltage on the cap which is discharging through the 1M resistance of your meter, and that will take a long, long time to reach zero.

I've mentioned all of this before here, and a note has been added to both articles.

Ok. I'm sorry.

No worries. I just wanted to explain why you were seeing what you were seeing and take some of the mystery out.

I have a standard Panasonic 15k cap at the output. I'd like to by-pass the cap.
I looked at couple of similar topologies (Zen 4 and Zen 9) and it appears to be OK to proceed.

Anyone try by-passing the output cap? What did you use?

Does anyone know the output impedance of the CCS version?

If memory serves (and it may not) it was somewhere around 4 ohms.

I just looked at the ironamp which caught my interest...

I have a balanced source so I have a 10k/10k Jensen JT-11P-1 and so I wonder if I should put it in front of the simple sit as planned, or if it would be better to do the Ironamp frontend and skip the input cap, R1 and R2.

Should work Easy enough to try. Mind your wiring. You might need the damping network. What say the group?
