    Call them and ask. There's no shame in outright replacement and it's sometimes a less expensive route. Might be a good time to update your profile with your location so others can chip in if they...

    Well it's good progress - you crossed a big hurdle. I think a new thread is probably a good idea.

    It sounds like you've been pretty thorough and that bodes well.

    I think either will work.

    Did you check all the other components listed? I should add C15 to the list but that would be a rare failure.

    For the first test, remove R11 (or R12) to disable the...

    Check T3 and T4 for shorts. If either is bad check all associated driver components i.e T1, T2, T5, T6, R1, R2, R28, R5, D24, R29, R7, D25 and IC1. When one of these FETs blow it often takes a bunch...

    The problem is it takes a long time to research and compare parts. Per my comment above I suggest you find one with a lower forward voltage drop. I don't think the switching speed is crucial,...

    The cap is in the feedback path. If it develops a higher than designed-for internal resistance then you will have too much feedback at higher frequencies. If you also have an extra 180 degrees of...

    Do you see oscillation on the speaker out?
    What if you turn the master to zero?
    Does it still happen if you have so speaker connected?
    What are the characteristics of the probe you are using?

    It's close but the forward voltage drop is quite a bit higher. Therefore the power dissipation will be significantly higher too. That might not matter if the thermal margins are good.

    But one input is 5Meg and the other is 5K! Why not just use a differential amplifier? You'll get about 20db of gain too.

    Let's wait and see it in the final context. It seems that this is just a part of the picture.

    BTW, I'm actually more envious of the drill press.

    Did I miss something? 1V in with 1K ohm source impedance and 850mV out? Doesn't that imply a input resistance of 0.85/(1.0-0.85) * 1k= 5.66K ohms?
