I don't understand why you saw a challenge. You talk very learned on the subject, I wanted to see some other ideas. Especially yours. Always happy to learn, discuss. So simple.

Countries have their sound based on mainstream culture and designers that influenced local audio history. Many times a general national tone has been referred as a school in audio jargon.

No intentions in the way you thought.

All the best.

Salas.

This is like in the US during the 70s and 80s we had the concept of the westcoast sound and the east coast sound typified by JBL and Boston Acostics respectively. There are of course exceptions to all such generalizations.

It would be very interesting I think to become more familiar with the audio design philosophies which predominate in various other cultures. Given the huge difference in culture, the arts and music in places like Japan v.s. the Western European cultures I could well imagine that different aspects of audio would be valued more or less highly in the different countries.

Take a look at what the Japanese are listening to at the extreme high end and you will see it is mostly WE and what would otherwise often if not always typify West Coast Sound i.e. JBL, Altec Lansing, Langevin, Brook, RCA cinema hardware, and a reinterpretation of the old Jensen speakers (now Onken). Not all of these are from the West Coast, but all are synergistic with that sound. Oddly enough despite denigrating it for decades I now understand my tastes run in exactly the same direction as those fellows, and my system would be right at home in a typical Japanese listening room. (My tastes always really tended in that direction, I was just too ignorant to realize it. I might have scored some good JBL kit at a time when it was under appreciated, now of course it's way too late.. I had to pay $$$.)

The West Coast vs East Coast Sound thing goes way further back to sometime in the late 1950's and probably originates with the original AR acoustic suspension speaker systems. FWIW As a New Englander I prefer the left (west) coast sound..

Very interesting points of view i found a 60' study, in french, where the question of choosing the monitoring loudspeakers in the ORTF house was deliberated : At this time , musical consideration was in second order after the "speach" sound because of the need to improve the voice of France worldwide
The study was comparing the sound of the french language vs english / spanish / german / italian : and concluding to a more accurate quality in medium / high spectrum needed against boomy bass ... so even 50 years later, the "french sound" remains in narrow 8' to 10' speakers , 12' are professional , 15' were undiscovered except in movies whith Altec A7

And then J. Hiraga comes at a point in the picture, and meddles the best details from Japan with French taste and West Coast dynamics.
That is why I like the modern French tube and loudspeaker sound the best currently. Renaissance mon ami!

This is an update on the 6V6 line preamp.

A Mosfet Maida regulator was added in the 6V6 preamp.

Salas,

Would you also post the Maida regulator too

Thanks

Look at post #81 (page#4), there is a link for the Mosfet Maida, in the comments, under the schematic.
