But, the high and low frequency roll-off is present, at levels depending on the amount of negative feedback. Thus I would expect the F6 to sound even less like a tube amp than the M2.

What sound has Nelson achieved with his F6. Only he and his buying customers know and experience. Flip side question: What will your Teaser6, buzzforb's Franken6 , triode_al's, flg's other DIYers' sound in Mr. Pass's experimental setup? You'd love to know! Maybe for a modest fee, Passlabs [or an entrepreuneur DIYer amongst us] test the subjective and objective performance of your Teaser6 compared to an authentic [investment] F6, and issue a Certificate? For all I know, you are well-equipped to do the testing of amps by other DIYers! It shows through your posts.

The fragment you abstracted from the M2 User Manual belongs exclusively to all of the M2 amplifiers assembled [and sold to users] by First Watt. It is also a guiding light to the DIYer to expect the subjective and objective performance that can be attained in a diy build of M2.

Ilquam. Take the time to play with P3 on the F5, paying attention to the harmonic structure of the distortion and trying to match it what you hear. It will not tell you all, but will give you an idea of what can be done. Of course a non feedback design like the Ba3/BA2 output stage will have the same ability, but perhaps a slightly different sound due to no feedback. Nelson's brilliance is his ability to decide what he wants and make it happen on his terms. Takes knowledge, and perhaps more important, experience. Its easy for me to tell the difference, cause I got the "Golden Ears".
