Thanks 6L6
The more I think about it and after reading about all the fakes around, I think maybe I will stick with the Vishays. I know I can get them from reputable dealers. I am starting to wonder about the 2SK170/2SJ74 I have. Do you know of reputable dealers selling them? I see FETAudio mentioned as a good source. Do you know of others? Thanks again.

Hi folks!
Maybe it's a dummy question but I found slight difference between two F5 amplifiers schematics. At least it should be 4.2V on left image. Also there are two capacitors on PCB board. Which one is correct one or better one?

And which PCB board do you prefer for this amp. I'm trying to make a short cut.
An externally hosted image should be here but it no longer works. Please upload images instead of linking to them to prevent this.

Do not try to use the RURG8060 for Class A power supply. I almost finnished my F5 Turbo V 3. Tried with a vario. The vario got hot and never more then ca, 0,8 vdc came to capacitors. They was oscillating no doubt.

Default up in smoke

Looking for some help. I just finished assembling F5 amp using v3 boards/schematic and when I powered up to check/set bias things went up in smoke! In particular R7 and R8 lit up and Q1 and Q2 "popped". Looking at board it appears a few other resistors got hot too...R14, and R4 showing discoloration.

I have double checked, triple checked component placement/polarity and am coming up with nothing.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!
