  1. Yesterday I Had The Blues - The Music of Billie Holiday José James
  2. I think you are right. I’ve used 2SK879 in one T2 battery since several years without any issues. From datasheet 2SK208 and 2SK879 look quite similar.
  3. Me too like schematics. I believe this goldenreference.pdf reflects goldenreference6.zip version.
  4. Here are the connectors disassembled. Pins are from Neutrik NC3FD-L-B-1. Take a metal saw and make a cut so you can bend up the outer metal housing. Then pins can be removed from inner housing. I would have prefer Teflon over 3D printed. I haven’t figured out how to mill it out though, but I managed to 3D print something usable.
  5. Thanks for dielectric values of PLA and PETG. Them in picture above are PETG but I’ve also used ABS which also works. I assume you can use PLA as well, but both PETG and ABS melting temperature are a bit higher than for PLA which might be an advantage when soldering wires to contacts.
  6. As most other DIYers I use Teflon Stax connectors with a small PCB. But on below amplifier I use 3D printed connectors with female golden contacts from Neutrik 3 pole XLR. And they seem to work really well. On heat sinks are 4 groups of c4686/a1968/c4686.
  7. Thanks guys. Yes, external PSU (T2 PSU with some addons). Maybe one can’t call it a Carbon since output stage is formed by NPN BJT - but else it’s similar. I think current is like 10mA. 300R emitter resistor and two LEDs in series. With +/-400V the heatsinks are “hand warm” and you can probably double the current.
  8. Has been in service for a few months now. Sounds alright.
  9. https://www.svtplay.se/video/31776463/jazzsommar-karl-olandersson-kvartett?id=KyE3oPV Should be available worldwide for the next 24 hours. From Sweden but Jazz is universal.
  10. Nice, Kerry! Now I get it - and the three pins (-, +, o) and all vias visible on the other side make sense even to me.
  11. Thanks Kerry, for internal picture of and info about your T2. It’s always very inspiring see your work. I assume the four small boards, one at each big tube, are CCS for the two LEDs on main board at respective output CCS. They must differ (schematically) from the original design, mustn’t they? Do you mind tell us what the small boards look like?
  12. Nice build indeed. I like the minimalistic – just a single Stax connector in the front and power switch in the back.
