Russ and Brian, thanks for the suggestions, looks like this is the only way of doing it.

Default critical parts?

I'm really satisfied with the quality of the kit. However, is there any part around the signal path that worth an upgrade? I mean Wima caps and Dale resistors are good but if I want better...

Any suggestion?

Thanks

Default DC BIAS

I read in the manual:

It is important to note that while the balanced output
differential offset can be completely nulled there will still be common mode DC bias on those outputs relative to GND.


What value is normal in that case?

Thanks

Upgrade the Dale resistors to Takman Carbon if you think the sound is to much to the Treble/ Midrange side. I think Takman Carbon is the most neutral on the market and believe me when I tell you I have experienced very very much.
I really do not understand the good reputation those Dale resistors got. Off course they are way better than normal for metalfilm resistors.

I would say 2W Kiwame carbon film resistors..

just a claim imo

all of them will probably behave differently in different circuits

best

Damn! I want to try discrete opamps I have but DC bias must stay under 0,5V! Suggestions for output capacitor value?
