Question Audio Note M3/4/5/6/8 schematics

Hi there!
I tried to ask for Audio Note schematics in general in a thread, but got no replies. So now I'm asking for schematics for AN M3, wich I'd like to clone.

I would avoid audionote circuits, they sound poor, due to poor transformers, and in the pre's, thick with rolled off treble.

Audionote are going down the tubes, too, no-one will supply qvortrup.

Ok, what else are you suggesting?
I really like the AN sound, I think the treble sound natural; not extended to sound "hi-fi". And I can use a different transformer, I'm open for suggestions here as well.

Unfortunately, If you build AN preamps to the original designs with parts other than those used in the originals (esp transformers and capacitors) they tend to sound very sonically challenged.

Some of the designs are downright weird: how about a linestage using a 6072 SRPP into a paralleled 5687 ? If you email me I can send you a few schematics, but if remember correctly they don't contain many component values, and if they do they are often wrong.

I'm going for almost all the original parts. Half the joy of making your own amp is tweaking!
The 6072 srpp into a paralelled 5687 is almost a m10. I've got the scheme for that one, and that is probably the amp I'm ging to build when the time comes.

How do I send PM's on this forum? Can't find a way..
