Default Zen V9 with Peter Daniel & Veteran boards

Veteran produced more than one hundred boards for ZV9, but I can't see here around so many building experiences (see "Where are Zen V9 builders" thread).

As I'm new in Class A I suspect this is only apparently an easy project, or newbees don't want to put obvious questions. I'll take the risk.

I have already Veteran's pcb and Lovoltech jfets, so the first problem is overcome. Next problem is the choice of components. Here too I suspect that each one has its secret contribution to an overall equilibrium I don't understand and that a single spec of a single component can destroy it.

I compiled following part list collecting informations from members bigbrowncow, gewa and others. There are Digikey part n. so it can be useful to other too. I will update it if there are observations.

Do I go on?

Cheers

For an easy check of the part list here are pictures of amp and ps pcb:

Thomaseliot,

Thanks for taking the initiative on this list, I for one will definitley find it useful.
I know Peter Daniels just completed a ZV9 and perhaps he might be willing to share his parts list?

Hi Neil,

nice to find you here. Do we start building?

Peter Daniel uses very high grade components, something like the whole part list value for 2 caps. I would go with ordinary components for this first try.

Ciao

Thomas

I never prepare parts list for my project, and usually use what I have in stock. Since this is a special amp, I decided to use the best, or maybe rather, most expensive parts I had available

Panasonic caps and Dale resistors would be fine here.

Here's the link to my version of the amp: Another Zv9 completed

Thomas,
Mine is under construction.
As usual (for me) the main difficulties are in the mechanical parts.
Moreover, I don't like "square box" appearance that the major part of the constructions has (except for that of Peter, really something new), but this amplificate the difficulties (especially due to the fact that I haven't any mechanical skill...).
Anyway, I based my build on 4 heatsink (mod. 8059, 150 mm
at www.esco.it) so it has been necessary to modify the PCB.

Thank you for the BOM, soon I will order from Digikey.
I only suggest to add fast recovery diodes, or FRED's from IXYS (sold by Digikey also)

Guido

Thanks for this parts list! I am a new at this and I am going to tackle this project soon! I had a pretty much complete list made up but some of the parts eluded me. I think it would be nice to have this "new to class A" thread

Guido:
Which FREDs would work well with this amp??

Hi Guido,

Thanks for the link. Amp enclosure would be next step, after we'll appreciate first sounds.

I would go with good ordinary components like these:

Not yet time to go better than the model

Have you a Digikey number for diodes you hint?


Hi Peter,

all resistors in part list above are Panasonic. Where can I find Dale resistors on line?

Dales can be sourced from Mouser.
