At last, I found some time to do the first electrical test! It came to life easy! I remind you that I' m using two DCG3 stereo modules, each one powered by one half DCSTB.
First DCG3: power rails @ 17,22V/-17,22V bias @ 111mA/113mA
Second DCG3: power rails @ 17,34V/-17,35V bias @ 113mA/113mA
Should I trim anything?
I haven't insert the opamps yet but DC offset was easily adjusted around 1mV although it fluctuates, of course.
My DMM has lost the ability to measure temperature but I can say DCG3 was just warm after 15 min and DCSTB even less with its 2,5" heatsinks.

Looks like a perfect start, nothing to trim.

OK! I need to put some work into the chassis before any listening. I hope to have news by the weekend

Thanks for your quick answer. Pardon my ignorance, but it says in your instructions: "R6 sets the gain. 1k for 3x, 499R for 2x, 1.5k for 4x." There must be something that I don't quite understand. What gain do I get if I change just the R6 from 1k to 470R? Or is it a no go and I must change the R7 as well?

Thats very interesting. You have good eyes to spot them!!

Slim uPA has the N logo indicating pin1 which goes to the white stripe side on PCB

Fat uPA has its upper left corner slant. Again indicating pin1

The board has pin identification printed on every uPA pad also

Ultimately as you watch from the connectors PCB edge towards correctly installed uPAs the left one shows its face the right one shows its rear
