CFs usualy didnt get me anyway b3, I'm to unexperienced, but I really think stong tamed CFs is the ****. I have listened to so many preamps to so many poweramps and all I can say is. get a decent preamp b4 you put the money elsewhere. Imp is the ****.

Gonna connect it up to some old MOSFET monoblocks tomorrow. I nailed late in night the bastard failure. Lets check how they will sing together. They got 30dB gain that I measured. I.e. plenty for CF as driver.

I am trying to stay away from these damn glow plugs, but an LED just doesnt have the same allure. I have made the commitment that a tube power amp has to be the last thing, cause I want to do it right, which probably means dropping big coin. Tube Xs, shouldn't we call it Xs' daddy

Pleas understand Stajo and ZM, that I am official US part disposal facility, in case you had any "outdated" parts. Hell, I'll even take new parts....

Well Buzz, if things were sorted out by the chisel, why dont go back? Changing your setup to "better" parts can get you all sorts of problems. Oscillation is one of a biatch. She can show up anywhere you least expect.

As for the goodies, well they are here in sweden, mostly on a boat actually. But its diy friendly prices if you miss anything.

Me too. Nice to have used my CRO again now the DSO is gone. Will retaliate with a 50.000 updates per sec one soon though.

Way too many acronyms at once. What is strange is that I understand. I like it when this thread lurches back to life. I believe folks are missing this one, but I am just hyperactive greenhorn.

Low drop shottkys and a C-L-C-R-C-R-C

It was for testing if ac on filaments was the bad guy. Seems like it wasnt

Well, I'll ad some more capacistance to the railfilter, cause I dont think I will get voltage enough from this lil tranny with an SSHV. But first I will enjoy Marleys Legend. Ripple is inaudiable in the sofa, its just with the ear in the cone.
