    current feedback electrostatic amp

    Thanks. I’ll give Digikey my order. Looks like I’ll have all the parts to try the little amp out. I’ll repurpose the PS from my KGST to power it. Thanks for the resistor confirmation. The BO slide on that BJT is not too encouraging...

    FYI, PBHV9560, PBHV8560, KSA1156 are all in-stock at Mouser and shipping. KSA2752 are still BO until November.

    Bought these PCBs from the GB awhile back. Looking to order the in-stock resistors to start. Are the values shown currently good to use? The schematic done earlier is a little different. Thanks.

    Have you tried isolating the problem by wearing your headphones backward to see if the channel imbalance flips ears (stays with the R channel earpod)? When mine seem imbalanced, turns out a good ear cleaning does wonders.

    Happy Birthday Birgir! 🎂 Hope you have plenty of Brennivín to wash down the Hakarl and Surir Hrutspungar!

    I’ve found unrolling the SR-009 earpads inside out gives more room to work. Makes it easier when removing the inner cloth dust shield and getting at the small screws for disassembly and assembly. When all reassembled, just roll them back over themselves.

    Bum fight!
  13. Hi John.

    Not to threadcrap on your Yggy For Sale thread, was wondering what you are using for a DAC instead ATM. Just looking what others are currently enjoying.
