Finally.

BTW, current asking price for 2SJ74 is 4€ a piece.
So just P-JFETs alone would be 2000€ ?

(That is of you can get them at that quantity at all......)

I read about power amplifiers that go for $100,000. What would you pay for
such an exotic beast?

Besides, Patrick, I have a photo of you holding one of the boards. You had
your chance to run away with it....

A dream of your youth came true creating the "beast", what a long line in your life and how happy the different turnings of the story.....

a great movie....

thank you! and your wife, turning dreams in a kind of real situation....ending (of course) in communication and the young man, fulfilling the monsters whishes...

Hi!

Since I have recently switched to another job, the last month or so had been quite freaky...Net result was the lack of time for forum or any audio activities...So tonight I decided to see what's going on here...

What a nice surprise! As always, thank you Mr. Pass!

Roth tested the Idss of each Jfet and soldered them into the boards
So I guess some matching is also required, so that would be even more expensive

That's why it's so hard to get those JFets in The Netherlands, Mr. Pass bought them all
