maybe next year...

I have the pc boards, and when I have a little time I will stuff up the
official copy and write the article.

It is comparable in power to the rest of the FW amplifiers, uses the
R100 power Jfets (but can also use regular Mosfets) and is unique in
a couple of ways.

I'm only going to make 10, and there is no intention to sell them, so it's
strictly DIY.

If you want more juice, then the F5 Turbo is probably what
you want.

Thank you again, Mentor Pass--for your gifts of years passed, and of 2012 to come (F5 Turbo, F6, and ????)

excellent!! i can feel a GB for the R100A coming on, have you tested these parts Nelson? X? unfortunately anything that wont accept balanced inputs is kinda out for me except for novelty reasons as my main rig only has balanced outs

i'll echo the thanks and amazement of above!!

I have tested lots of R100s - that's the production J2.

The F6 has RCA inputs only, though.

Awesome, it sounds like 2012 is shaping up to be a really big Pass DIY year.

Should I fear this is a harbinger of the the world's end?
