Anyone is welcome to host their projects on diyaudio.com. Just send me the files or the site you want uploaded and I'll make a space for it.

Default How similar to the original

It is hard to tell, but judging from the information I have up to this point as well as comments from Nelson Pass in this very thread, I suspect it is almost completely the same.

Read what NP said and judge for yourself -- last post on page 3.

Photos will be forthcoming when I can get hold of a digital camera.

Except for the small fact that Nelson uses 80 output devices instead of 16......The X-1000 dissipates about 600W per channel, so if you would have used only 16 output devices they would have a real tough job. Spreading the load, as Pass does, is the only way for these kind of high-powered and hot-running amps to last....(please bare this in mind)

The clue to that is the name of the thread. Petter's got it covered. I guess he doesn't have a listening room the size of an aircraft hanger.

Default Functionally

Functionally almost completely the same would be my best estimate.

Default Thanks NP

This is work in progress. I will send pictures to you when project is finished and working -- then you can decide if you want them.

Default What are these files

Triplets: An Excel optimization model for creating compound resistors where current in trimmer is minimal, all turns of trimmer are used in desired window, and progressions is relatively linear.

Other files: Images of circuit. Don't laugh at the amateurish look + crammed board ...

Please note:
1. Brass screws (no ferric materials here!)
2. Small dimensions of board
3. Lack og ground
4. Power supply comb pattern is "filler" to fill the board. I figured if I did this I would be able to find use for it.
5. Rounded features in PCB track corners.

Also note what I did wrong:

1. PCB tracks could be thicker
2. Size could be made a little bigger
3. Mounting holes should be set up (not really a problem, but ...)
4. I ended up using larger resistors than expected (which is good because they don't modulate so easily but the pattern was a little tight for them.
5. Trimmers are too close to other things.
6. Pads could be a little bigger.
7. Transistors have a thicker side. If you put two of them together, that is about 8 mm of space which I did not plan for! Check out the central right transistor (top) and you will see what I mean!
8. Small silly things that amateurs do.

But hey, this is my first print. There are also other modifications that could be done.

Petter
