So integrate it with the degeneration resistor that is VERY close to the main VAS device (R17 below) ?. Insulate the resistor lead and pass 2 turns through the f14. Just to be sure ... is this a f14 ??

BTW , you realize this amp has "magical sound". I can't get over it ... had to get new tweeters and mids (below 1)to fully realize just how accurate it's sound was. Near perfection. I will share the final design (below 2 - r25 is just to test CCS current , not on real amp)... 0 thump (not even a "glitch" on the CRO) , 0 offset (0c - 60c) , can't be overdriven , and 100% awesome sound. It will run from 10V to 80V rails maintaining it's 6mA CCS current.

I've built every voltage stage out there and this one stands out. I can swap stages in 30 seconds , so I KNOW.

Os, those TV baluns look the part, grade-wise. If they were for VHF reception, rather than just UHF, they'd be suitable. If you have access to the ARRL handbook in some form, it's usually a great guide to ferrites. I see there's some guidelines there too in the catalog you posted. The 6-hole "bead" Dave is using is, in my example, 6mm dia. x10 long.

There's quite a bit more material in those than your average bead, however. I imagine it would take 2-3 beads of say 3.5 x5 mm to approach those big'uns. It's just well I asked.
Yes they are probably 3x standard beads. I will set up a bread board test cct and sweep Z over 1-50 MHz. I should also really use a 10mA dc bias to better simulate a VAS environment.

If it's sold as a vhf grade former then yes it's probably what I call F14.
It's a specific blend of nickel + zinc that's effectively lossy > 10MHz.

Default Fair -Rite ferrites

This would seem to be the equivalent part in the US. The nearest standard Ni/Zn grade is 43 and fig. 1 (unwound) appears identical. As Dave suggests, a few smaller, plain beads may suffice. I guess we'll hear shortly.
