Ok Quint !

In this case too, I see that I forgot something :

Quote
If so, would you be able to select the amount of B'ASS stages used in parallel in the new device you propose?

Yes of course, this is what the switches are for !
So if you have a look in the first page again and observe all the options, then all you need to know is that when you chose e.g. option 34 (which implies 4 levels) then each of the levels can be switched off. One thing : the first level is two at the same time (this is why the columns start with "2 amp").
So with 34 you have the possibility of 2, 3 and 4 - at your choice. I plan pass through (0 amp) as well, so in the end it is 0, 2, 3, 4 (0 being the signal you are used to at this moment).

Something quite else ...

It looks like I have made a quite n00b mistake : I never took into account burn-in for my own testing. Well, sort of;

I knew from the start (which by now is about a year ago) that things seem to get better automatically. This has been crazy difficult because the first 3-4 months it was always trying things, up to the stage I found out what is actually causing the NOS1(a) burn-in necessity. Then I could elliminate that part and from then on all was good.
And then later things got better. And better. But in so many changes of that time (RAM OS Disk, new XXHighEnd version and more I forgot by now) I couldn't really point at it.

...

... So if you now hear me talking about how I now bit by bit am able to have 4 engaged a part of the time, while at first this was 3 a part of the time ...
Then this can very well be about burning in.

I thought of this yesterday, all sounding as good as the day before, even in cold situation (prior to the first 20 minutes passed). So it now looks that it is just a matter of keeping it in use and it will be "there" automatically after some time.
How much time ? difficult to say. They are always on and just hooked into the signal when I attach the particular one. So maybe I have been using my #4 for 12-15 hours by now under load (without load nothing much will be burned in, I'm afraid).

This is quite stupid because probably I should be using a number 5 by now. Sweat a bit for a couple of days and sit that out. Or do as I did with 3 and 4 and have fun with trying 5 once in a while. Until that day pops up that I can say once again : it has never been so good !!

Shy ...

Hey Peter, why not just hook up 8 total amps and let them burn in over headphones?  Could save your sanity  Wink

Hi Peter,

Can you post a chart on the forum showing the increase in current amplification through each increased amp. Maybe this might help some of the guys who have the requisite technical knowledge (not me)to decide how many amps they may need for their set up.

Just a suggestion.

Best regards,

Arvind

Hi Arvind,

What I planned for today (and I already forgot), was actually measuring it. I mean, it won't work out as any linear thing - the same sort of problem with determining the power music requires (opposed to determining the power a testsignal requires, which is easy).

Theoretically is ia ~240mA per additional amp level but I am fairly 100% sure I am not going to measure close to 1A additional draw when I am playing music of whatever kind. What I do believe though, is that additional levels make a difference because it is "more readily available". So say all is faster because of the more pushing. Say that one person is able to move a car by pushing it and the accelleration goes very slowly. Maybe he can do 10Km/h (before he is tired). But with ten people the acceleration could be 10 times as fast, although the maximum speed will never reach 200Km/h (10x 20).
Something like that ...

Now I must not forget my measuring plans ...

Hi Peter,

I remember when I tried to bypass my preamp & feed the NOS signal directly into the amps, I never got any sound. Probably the current output from the NOS is too low to drive the amp with the speaker load. The B'ASS unit could be of help here, since essentially it's doing the job of the preamp, in terms of amplifying the NOS signal.

Best regards,

Arvind,

Nah, what I recall of that is that you had too low (level) output because your poweramp anticipated the gain of the (adjacent) preamp. So this was a voltage problem.

You won't have that problem in your new (amp) situation, obviously ... whistle

Hi Peter,

Is there any news on the volume control in relation to the SQ.
As far as I remember that was still a subject you would look into.

Yes, but not with pleasure. And I can tell you, since someone brought this forward, it at least is holding up.

Anyway, your question encouraged me to finally try the first ready option I have laying around for many weeks by now. The result you see below. It doesn't work at all.

I never have been lucky with volume controls.

Peter

Hi Peter,

Does that mean that the VC is not good for the main (nos1a) input but still useful for the additional rca inputs? Or not at all?

Or will you search for a better solution?

If this is it I would go for a 35vIx2. Plus blaxius of enough length (50 cm?) to place the B'ass next to the NOS1a.

Arjan,

This was just the easy test because it comprised a ready product (huray for China). It doesn't work at all (only distortion as all the peaks show and no volume control whatsoever).

I only bought this as a ready product because it was cheaper than the elements in it. What I can expect of this is that electrically all is fine, but that the micoprocessor involved has a bad program in it. That would render it useless.

I have two other sets with "elements" but this requires maybe a day of sitting back and find out how to connect all. It actually requires relatively so much time that it looks that I may never find that time.
Maybe when I take a day off. Haha.
