I could adopt the same solution on my PCB. You advice this intervention?
I want to inform you but I'm buying for a capacitor C9 a Black Gate, and perhaps, therefore, would not need the bypass.
I also purchased the two ERO 1834 (10 nF and 150 pF) and the Riken for R10.
Many Thanks Dario

I've added the bypass position to overcome the scarcity of BGs.
Buy the BG only if price is reasonable, prices on eBay are mostly absurd.
When using a BG a bypass is not necessary, sometimes even detrimental.

I'm in. again.
I've got a few of the earlier boards to build yet, but I think I want to play around with R10 and the added pads for the Caddocks will help. Besides, I eventually want to be using FE's for each stage of an active crossover. That means I'll need several boards.
For all of you who haven't built one of these yet, jump on board. This is a great amp with lots of helpful people behind it.
