Potential mathed JFETs for Balanced F5 build
All, I've watched the Balanced F5 build with interest. As you may know, I completed my cascoded balanced F5 a month or so ago. To do so, I needed a set of JFETs to suit the build. Being the compulsive over buyer I am, I bought a load of JFETs. My matches have consistently run the spectrum. My experience is a lot of Idss' will work well, but if you desire a specific Idss, I'm game.

Now the disclaimer. While I love DIY audio, I can get super busy super fast. I have NO INTEREST in making JFET sales a business. I am very interested in helping my brothers forge forward into the unknown pleasures of a home built Nelson Pass amp! As such, please do not get upset if it takes me a few days to respond to a PM, or send a package.

I have been sending JFETs to friends and people who've expressed problems (eBay or otherwise). So far, I've been charging by the difficulty of the match (pairs cheaper than quads, etc). I haven't given much thought to pricing, it depends on how many respond, and how many quads and octets I have.

Oh well, the title came through a little off, but it's sort of true still...

hehe yeah i like the title, its appropriate especially when talking about degen matches. i sent you a pm regarding some of those and i would also like to add a request for the highest idss j74 quad (or perhaps octet) you can muster for driving semisouths from an aleph. have you done any vgs matched sets rather than idss?

Where did you find the little devils, I cannot get them myself

I have been surprised by the response.

It's clear there are more folks interested than I have Octets. I'll allocate what I have tonight on a first come first served basis.

I am days away from another set of JFETs from the same source. I suspect I'll have more matches shortly if you don't get an Octet, and want to wait.
