well - if you have two pairs of Semisouths , it is finished business for you

and , if made properly - it will outlives you , for sure

I also have a stash of 4 x R100s, 2 of which were originally lined up to upgrade my F2, but that was a long time ago and the urge has passed. I'm not inclined to wade through the whole of this thread so could some kind soul let me know if they have to be matched for F6.......

no, I said kind soul....chokies might not qualify

does the naah mean 'No, they don't have to be matched?
or
naah I'm not telling?

lhquam: I have part answers. Post #1317 showed MOSFETs in the output stage of the old classic. Also, pls search for the DIYer wimdehaan; he too had a schematic [c/o flg]in the early posts.

Wim DeHaan's design I posted is a complementary output design. Still a nice idea I will attempt...

I think I have the answer to that question and I am doing simulations right now.

Build the F6 using Nelson's "F6 with Variable 2ND Harmonic" schematic with "ordinary MOSFETs" and the lower (maybe upper too) source resistor with a higher value like 0R47. The FET degeneration will be determined by the Zen pots P3 and P4, not the source resistors. BUT the bias thermal stability will be improved by the DC drop across the source resistor(s). My guess is that this will work without thermistors in the same manner as the many F5s built without thermistors.

Zen Mod. You are logically correct. lhquam and buzzforb have them too. Fortunately, they are searching for solutions so DIYers [who will never have R100As] can appreciate diyF6. You too have a stake in diyF6. I hope that you augment their efforts so as to keep it alive.
