    If a sound is on the record, the T before the finger completely closes the holes on a flute for example, will be there to ear.

    Maybe it would be wise to listen to one before much posting
    I asked Jez a question - why you seem to take offence at that I don't know. How transconductance is related to speed, I have no idea.
    Transconductance is an unusual amplifying principle (voltage in = current out) so I was asking what the attraction is. Why would I need to hear any particular phonostage to ask that question?

    No offence taken and certainly not my intention to give, why should I ?
    Just stating fact that, probably more in Hi Fi than in any other sector, the proof of the pudding is in listening.
    Transconductance ?
    I don't know as well, to me is just magic, I have heard the Paradise and that is the impression I had, did Jez tried one ?
    For the same reason that I will be going to Doug Brady for a demo next week so I can hear what a 16 each transistor can do

    Resistors Andy, not transistors.

    Your transistors are matched to better than 1% for hfe and matched for low noise.

    He's has heard one of mine running a single box psu and slightly low rails, 25v. It wasn't a great match to his cart to be honest.


    The benefits of transconductance with respect to low level signals are well covered in the 3000+ posts long MPP thread on diy audio.

    Simon,

    The photo that you requested, I could not link via a PM
