    Unusual Amplifier

    This is an integrated amp I use sometimes. It is likely the lowest distortion amp one could ever find. It is flat to DC and -.25 dB at 200 KHz. The circuit is pretty simple, JFET input and MOSFET...

    Sticky: Cande y Paulo

    Tiny Desk Concert, in a studio, a grand studio, not a home. An Argentine duo, plus one here, of stellar talent and quiet persuasion. New to me but they have been around for a long time. For you old...

    Nelson Pass Power.

    Twenty-five watt First Watt F5 here. I doubt it has ever been asked to put out five. Very efficient system.
