Another question. With the gain setting the manual says high output is 'fixed' at 20db (depending on tube). So does this mean that any resistor changes with the ampl module only affects low gain? That 'w/o AM' selection bypasses the module altogether to fixed on-board gain resistors?
Total gain will always be tube dependent. The attenuation module will always attenuate the tube's gain by the amount it is designed for. Changing the resistor values in the AM thus only changes the gain in AM mode only. In the w/o AM setting the resistor values do not matter as they aren't in the circuit, they are bypassed by a jumper.
use your EARS to enjoy MUSIC .... NOT as an analyzer
One more thing: When biasing manually the voltage tends to skip around a lot - it'll jump forward a bit from say 11.53 to 11.8 to , then jump backwards to 11.4x (just examples), meanwhile I delicately turn the pot a little this way and that trying to catch up with it. Eventually it settles where I want it, but I'm curious if this is normal.
Mr Trev: Didn't AKG try something like this once?

Mr Trev: Just try to ignore the fact they're $3500 for now

solderdude: Expensive, lacking in bass extension (for obvious reasons) and very high distortion levels (as per some measuremenst) but great sounding (so I am told)

Mr Trev: Expensive… yes, but when you consider a shiny new top of the line Mac Pro costs $53000, it's almost a bargain

shiro: Almost Xmas eve, so before everyone is too boozed up to visit here: Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it. To those who don't: enjoy the peace and quiet, it only happens once a year, so sit back and relax.

Mr Trev: 2020 already, but we still can't buy hovercars. Somebody has really dropped the ball on that one
