I've been listening to running water, very relaxing. ESL on Jam's A40s.
Just before the stormy weather hit the coastline, my timing still needs some work.

As far as I know Jam has not built an A-40.
How do you like it?

You want it to be called the Weingolf A40 from now on ?
Out of curiosity, how many mosfet A40-s have been built ?

I just realised the mosfet A40 is the first all-fet design i constructed, i'm really pleased with the set. (still need to have marble front plates made, my broken fingers set me back a couple of months again)
The total building costs of A-40s are modest because of the low rail voltages and low-cost parts. I rarely need more than the power the A-40s deliver, all in all it's a very relaxed sounding couple. One day i'll have to haul myself to putting together a set of original A-40s for comparison, no idea why i've never built Pass A40s.

I think there were atotal of 16 boards. Jam has one, Mark M has one. Mark G has one and I have one. Those are the four amps that I built. I sent a set of boards to you, Harry and Brian D. I am not sure who has the other boards.

I had a chance to liste to Panelheads LM3886 amp. It was much better than I expected.

That's the one. BY mauropenasa.
When is is 100 degrees outside the Class A amps stay off. I still have 3 Pass amps in the house and one at work.
