I have been doing some serious listening to my "improved" Teaser-6 and it now brings back memories of some of the old tube amplifiers from my past in the 50s and 60s. Since Nelson described it as "basically it's a classic" I suspect I am listening to something similar to what he intended.

Excellente! What do you think? Keeper? Isnt interesting how different the sonic signatures of amps can be. Have you tried tweaking edginess out of f5?

I suspect that I will switch back to my balanced F5 after a few days. One idea would be to find an antique cabinet used for the best radios in the 30s and 40s and equip it with an F6 and a decent 12 inch speaker.

I have not really played around with the P3 adjustment on the F5 other than to null the 2nd harmonic. I wouldn't say that there is much "edginess" with the F5, other than perhaps needing a little high frequency rolloff.

F5 has a lot of capability. If you have not heard a mulitple pair version, you have notheard the F5, IMO. At least this brings it into line with my listening taste. I have adjusted it a for a little more 2k, but not much. Try the BA3.

ZM: What is the material of that grill and how long does it take to get it hot enough for pancakes?

Off Topic, please excuse -

For those contemplating to "soften" the F5 towards something like the proposed sound of this F6, changing the resistors for Rhopoints for the crutical positions, TRW/PRPs for others and the Isabellenhutte PBH for the power resistors is a complete "gamechanger" - pity the darn things cost so much, plus the "necessary" upgrading of power supplies.

JH, The natural sound of the F5T circuit with even one set output's is worth noting. A bit calmer and more controlled, as discussed elsewhere.
I've noticed the most changes with F5 in general by changing the signal resistors, input and gate.

material is plain stone

it must not be sandy - meaning - it can't have sand layers , because that sort of stone will not last long

you must be careful during first fire - start with small amount of wood and add slowly ; if stone live that without cracking , it's most probably good

some sort of support underneath is wise to have , so it leaves only thermall issues to stone

wrote that several times already , in all sorts of threads in Papaland

before heating it for next BBQ , clean it with wire-brush and some other sort of hard brush

when hot , add grease or oil ;

regular time for full temp - less than you need to heat up casted iron BBQ
