  1. Kerry most likely points to the zeners dynamic impedance which varies with current 1.3mA might operate the zeners too close to the knee
  2. did you check the zener string is actually seeing ground? and the 3k is actually 3k value, and sees source and gate?
  3. @mwl168 is right 40V offset doesn't sound right. The static may origin from leaking resistors or bad solder joints. Check the 175k's (r10+r11) , r14+r29 and r7+r30 , as well as their joints
  4. Check the current source at the front end should source more than ~1.3mA or so look here for more
  5. most likely you are measuring at BIAS output, having an output impedance of 5Meg ... and the DMM most likely 10Meg, so the +380V is actually 570V Use the test point (TP) rather to get the right voltage
  6. Indeed a remarkable piece, and always good for a listen ... reminds me of Pears/Britten Winterreise ... and the recent announcement from the Britten-Pears and Snape Malting foundations announcement of an "exciting and logical development": to merge and forget all about Peter Pears ... wonder if the next "logical" step will be announcing that Pears lured Britten into living with him against his will, and the foundation begins to twitt #metoo on behalf of Britten ...
  7. BTW there are (at least) two versions of version 1.8 ... One has the CPC wrongly hooked up, but can easily be fixed: pics are of a skinny
  8. Either remove the CPC if you are not gonna use it, or apply +2V across As said, if you have +18V with cpc1117 shorting, the cascoded CSS most likely needs to be reduced, 4k7 usually works bad soldering?
  9. did you populate the CPC1117 ...either remove the CPC1117 or applie +2V across the pins If you have ~18V on the output, with the CPC1117 populated you probably have to reduce the cascoded CCS current....are you using 2k8 or 4k7?
  10. Have some from PCBNet, 1.6mm and 3oz. Anyone who wants to build the Transconductance amp and post a few pics here, can have a set or two. Promise to show a few pics of the build here, and I'll cover the shipping as well ?
  11. No 0,5 C°/W per channel will do if you go with stock values
  12. Finally got around to finalize my Megatron, fitted into one chassis with GRHV.
  13. continuing like that, you soon end up wearing a beret, eating fois gras, smoking two packs of Gauloises each day and driving a Renault 4, while complaining about the englishmen ...
  14. you might check the current sources:
  15. I might have two sets I want to depart with 2mm/4oz
  16. <10V offset isn't a problem. Engaging the servo should quickly get you <1V
  17. lower the tail resistor by some ~50ohms and re-adjust
  18. seeing only a few people have signed up for Carbon boards. I have some version 6g from PCBNet 2mm/3oz, that I don't mind departing from (16.75USD/ea). If interested shoot me a PM.
  19. ....same source as for the other 10m90's in your build?
