Part 1 of the ax-Amplifier will be published in the March issue of audioXpress, with Part 2 to follow in April. Stay tuned for further updates.
In the last update on Feb 1st, I had just received the PCB back from the PCB house. Since this was my first design on KiCAD, I wasn’t expecting much, so it was as much a learning exercise as it was a first PCB spin. Well, half the silk screen was missing, some of the […]
This article was written in 2014 in response to what can only be described as a vitriolic debate as to what constituted a CFA on diyAudio.com. At the time, many of the participants were struggling to grasp the fundamental differences between VFA’s and CFA’s, and even how to tell them apart. So, this document is […]

If you have purchased PCB’s and are still constructing your kx-Amplifier, I will continue to fully support your efforts as required, so do not worry. 114 PCB sets of the kx-Amplifier were sold, with as far as can be ascertained, a large proportion of them being built. Unfortunately 6 of the builders reported oscillation problems […]
