This in case no diodes are used.
As diodes minimize losses.

I would expect the diodes to have at most a marginal effect on current contribution while the amp is operating in ClassA mode.

The diodes would in my opinion only provide significant increases in available current when output current is significantly more than the Max ClassA output.

If the diodes were already passing significant current in ClassA mode then I think you will find that they over-rule the stabilising effect of the source resistor.

For his amp at 18V+/- he gets 15 watts; his formula at 33 volts this gives 50 watts too! I assume that this K is a similar 'drivability'.

At 3.5A, loss is 1.65v into source resistor let alone .
Diodes should keep about 0.65 volts across that resistor at the same current.
Which is 1volt less.

Prior to that K, everything is correct.


ClassA output current.

I have assumed the power factor of the linear power supply at the range of 0.6~0.8
Shouldn't it be calculate in this way? If its wrong, please point me out

peak output voltage level + voltage loss across the drain resistor + voltage to open up the output devices.

(and a little extra )

Just about now, people are discussing few layouts. They are not available to buy from anywhere. You can probably make your own PCB following the layouts discussed here.
DIY F5, F5T, F6, Aleph J, Fostex 206 based BLH, Altec Onken with 515 LF & 288 HF, Technics SP10 MKII & EMT950 turntables

If you are in a hurry, you might use Cviller F5 V2 boards from diyaudio store.

Or the F-5c V2 boards from the store

But they would both need some reworking..
