Romy, that's sort of a feedback I was hoping for, thanks. Ok, I see the point, with the feedback and R3 resistors. The last loads the  loop. I have now there 1W Dale RN65D, guess Z-foils with their 0.25W dissipation won't work. A...

I'm wondering if Romy experimented with the feedback resistor quality. His ingenious contribution to the design was to use the purest caps possible as in the feedback loop every imperfection gets amplified. So the next logical step after caps wou...

Alex, as I wrote I use Z-foils at the primaries of mu SUT's. I'm not sure if colder is the world *I* would use. I'm after immediacy and transparency and this is what they gave me. Also widening tonal discrimination, hearable esp with solo piano. ...

Alex, why do you think you need them? I've never experimented with snubbers at the SiC's directly. I only put two input caps right after the bridge and a dropdown resistor which I use before the input choke. IIRC the value is 10nF/1500V. This rel...
