Yes sir. I am not saying that they are not better, but whether or not you will reap great benefit from them. They are quite fragile, TBO, and I have measured very little difference in them vs mica or SP2000.

Thanks for the info. Several good options it seems. As soon as I can get to building I can stop obsessing about the minutia!

Needless to say, your GB kit efforts and build threads like this excellent one by 6L6 are appreciated by many!

Hope the builds going well, slowly the parts are ariving for my build.
I was wondering your boards are able to create F5T versions 2 and 3.
im building V2
Was it easy to figure out what to do to build V2 ?
i notice there are a second set of transistors on v3 which wont be used i guess ?
My boards should arrive soon. Cheers

Now time to ask Buzzforb about transistors.

Hi to everybody on DIYAudio.
Is long time (I can say years) that I follow this forum and finally I decide to put myself on the game.
I enjoy build ampli from long time, my first ampli was a 20W in classA for car publicated by Bartolomeo Aloia. Was amazing ampli and I built 3 of them with the electronic crossover.
Coming back from the past and stopping to boring all of you...Reading almost all the threats of the PASS forum finally I decide to built a Pass ClassA. Is a hard decision because my work take me around in the word and now I am in Korea that actually is not a good place if you want to be a DIYer. Very nice people but nobody speak english and all the website (digikey and mouser included) are in korean. No way to found a part shop here in Ulsan and I get the address in Seoul (thanks DUG!) but still I don't get the chance to go there (500 km from here).
Reading the guide built of Salomon I contact him for the PCB and he suggest me to look on Jims Audio in ebay. Now I have 2 channels of F5, 2 channels of F5T v3 and 2 channels of AlepX that look very nice
Received the V3 PCB I ordered the 5U 400 chassis from HIFI2000 that look very big and nice but reading this threat I understand that the V3 stereo in one chassis is not the best chance so I thinking come back in V2 using the PCB of V3. The picture of the board is attached. I check the PCB and look exactly as per NP schematic.
Somebody have used already this PCB? I think that can be easly used for the V2 bypassing the cascode and installing 2pr instead of 4pr.

I understand that Buzzforb have a GB for the trasformers and also can provide the Mosfet. May I ask to be part of the GB or is too late?

Any suggestion is of course most welcome!

Thanks to all of you

PS: I mention the picture of PCB... sorry, I will post when I understand how can do...
