Hi Salas,

Thanks a lot. I like these composers a lot, but I did not have nice records to fully enjoy my TT. Now, I'll have the chance finally to hear it in best sound quality. Thank you. Would you please also recommend anything in instrumental (and vocal) Jazz sector?
Thank you.

Yep, that is what I like too.
Thank you. I already made purchases, beside "Hungarian Rhapsody No.2".

It is an eBay sale and I'm not sure about authenticity....
Can't wait to turn on my TT with these LPs.
Thank you very much.
BTW, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff, both are my favours from Russian sector. Can't understand Alfred Schnittke and Igor Stravinsky....
To much disharmony for me...

Hi Salas,

One more question just to be sure....
I set my 2 BIBs boards for 300mA with 4 green LEDs and 12R Caddock for R301s.
My headphone amp uses about 150mA, or so.
All Q306 and Q301 are at room temperature or close, and R301 is warm ( about 40 deg C).
Is it normal?
I remember, in my BHL, Q306 and Q301 are runs really warm....
R301 is warm too.
Here they kind of cold.

Thank you.

One of my favorite LPs... I got this twice
If analogue productions re-issues it with the rest I will buy it at least once more
Unfortunately the SACD is not nearly as awesome...

+1 for Stravinsky... he has some good moments, but not really my cup of tea...

Means you can utilize more spare current in this new one. Your Vin-Vout, sinks size, and high enough headphone amp consumption resulting in lukewarm operation at now CCS level say that you may try 400mA+ and stop where the temperature becomes uncomfortable. 50C on sinks should be safe. Usually you can hear a subjective upgrade by doing that. Objectively the regulator's output impedance falls by few milliOhm further. Don't forget to verify the now and then running current by measuring the voltage drop across the setting resistor and then divide it by its value in Ohm.

Based on V-drop across R301 and 12 Ohm value, my current in-use is about 250mA. Please see attached picture.
So, if I'll go for 8.2 Ohm my set will go to 416mA (calculation based on your "SSLV1.1 Calculator V1a.xls").

Yep, try that. Should be beneficial.

P.S. Make sure the KM can stand it though. Maybe settle for 300mA?

Good point... I'll ask Kean about current limit on KM.
Thank you.
