Rock on, Brother. Very impressed with the effort.

To make it easy to change FETs in Teaser-6 I added 3-pin Molex sockets to the PCB and a 0.25" aluminum plate to the heatsink. Works great.

What happened to that neat PCB you had made.
Seriously, I have sat down quite a few times to design a board that would allow for mulitple tweaks and testing, but i never follow through. I have M2 clone 90% finished before I got stupid cold. What about listening impressions. I am a sucker for a good opinion.

The back side of the board looks even worse. Actually I am very happy with the ease with which I have been able to tweak the first version of the PCB.

I have Teaser-6 V2.1 PCB ready to go as soon as I am done with tweaks to V1.1.

I restarted listening tests today after the modifications I reported earlier.

My first tests are with both channels having a measured THD of about 0.05% nearly flat from 40Hz to 20kHz at 1 watt into 8 ohms. The sound is much improved from before the mods. It will require more listening and tweaking of the Zen pots before I can have a definitive opinion.

I am not sure whether the F6 can reach its full listening potential with the B&W CDM1 speakers I have.

I have looked, but it gets sketchy sometimes. Found some 414's that look descent. Will keep looking
