You are correct, I did not add any. I will try it and see if it makes a difference in the sound.

Normally, they are needed, or Jfet drains voltages will move with signal.
Why not cascoding?

That is a good description of the F6 sound!

I took the blue LEDs Nelson mentioned in the BAF lesson, the deliver around 2,8V, so you need only one per side and of course....

You have the "blue"sound Nelson intended, only with these one...

NOT to speak of the green ones, some well known Greenhorn uses every day in myrads ....impossible!

Guys can you comment on how F6 is expected to behave with lower impedance speakers? 4 or 6 ohms?

Unfortunately not....!

The available Edcor XS4400 is a good choice if you like the sound a bit darker and a bit more mystified...
