Alex: This is an interesting circuit. How low a Zo at a voltage gain = 1 [Transfollower] did it achieve?

So you have experienced a similar low frequency oscillation. How much modulation of the bias voltage (or current) have you seen? Do you fully understand the feedback mechanism?
nope , in fact

I didn't make one sole solder joint in direction of making F6

I'm speaking (all the time) from previous experience , both with small bias circuits intended for SJEP's and fun with xformers (various purposes)

I have 1K Nichicon Muse and they add their electro sound to the amp. Don't stone me please. I have some 470uF Silmic II's to try. I will be byassing with fancy Film more than likely. Although i cant grasp why you would want to do so considering the balanced nature of the circuit, I have considered putting two resistors in series to form the Rs Total. Put pot across top one and pull modulation point from their. Wouldnt lose all you DF and would allow for Zen adj.
buzzforb. Are the results from auditioning?

Yes, but just single channel. Maybe get the other up tonight. Voives come across as very natural, clear and airy, but there seems to be a veil with more complex music. I don't think much of it for now. I need to hear two channels. I added 4uF Film caps. Helped some. I will try other things tonight. It has enormous potential. I am sure we will be very surprised at Nelon's version. All others are just play things. I will try the trafos from BudP tonight. THey should have a little greater extension, but I am in no way saying that it is the transformer. Just havent listened enough.

18dB. My bad.

don't be surprised if surprised , when you include BudP's xformers

I tend to agree. More info for folks interested. I am driving it with a DCB1 with shunt cranked up slightly. It makes me want to hook up my Alpair12's with their 92dB efficiency or plug in my 6V6 pre with about 15dB of gain. THis is an amp for efficient speaks. I have a feeling it has a wonderful amount of detail in that FW region. My current setup does not allow for this. It will be rectified

Half-wave or full wave?

considering lowish gain , it will benefit from using livelier pre , whatever SPL needed

THis means its time to redo 6v6.
