10k & 11k, could I use a 10k trimmer pot to fixe the voltage needed? any suggestion for higher voltage npn Q8?

Yes, you could use a trimmer, but after you find the right value it would be best to use fix value resistors. For Q8 you could try BC546B.

Hi ! Salas
i have test Salas low shunt v1.0 out 3V3, with Q4 = Bd140 or MJE 350.
I want ask you about Mje 350 and Bd140, Which one is it better?? MJE or BD??
Thanks !

I remouve R= 10 Ohm
and I Change C 220uF// Trimmer by Tantalum capacitor 22uF or 47uf!
I see the sound is like! only this cap.
What do you think about the change???

BD140. Avoid tant caps. Most distortion, bad reliability. You probably liked the elevated 2nd harmonic they contribute. Test1 circuit shows Q6 reversed.

Ok! I use Bd140 ad 3.3 v and not use Tant caps!

Such design for CCS V1.2 shunt v1 looks great!
But inconsistent with the V-in source, it is difficult for DIY?
V1.0 is a complete design and simple

I say that:
The Salas low shunt
V1.0 is a complete design and simple , And the sound excellent for DAC, for pre and phono...,can adjust from 3-50V out put!
Because it is very simple and it is easy for all people make it,

Now , i test at 3.3v out, it is good!
