What does inputcap have to do with oscilliation!? it is a inputbuffer after the cap...
-If so, it would oscilliate when there wasnt any connector in the amp....


Agreed.. an input rise time filter's only function is to harmlessly roll off out of band signals before they can cause the amplifier to slew limit and perhaps cause audible in band artifacts.

Are you thinking of Spectral?  I think they were based in SF and founded on the premise that bandlimiting to 20kHz created slew limiting bluring time base information that provided directional cues.
There was an arm of the company that made records,  Reference Recordings.  I have one record of theirs with Stephen Gordon playing Chopin.  Lots of ambience that sounds like the rear third of the hall.


Sorry for the senior moment.. No not Spectral either.. I think it may have been a Canadian company with a distinctive but somewhat oddball name. I can just about form a mental picture of the guy (short, dark hair). I think he made a splash at one NYC AES show. But like I said it was a big deal one year and gone in like 2 years or less.

OK, smart guy, why not try it -- remove the filter and see how long the amp lasts before ultrasonic oscillation destroys the output stage.

Ummm, whooops. I have to apologize!

I missed the part about input filter.

It was done on day one.

Hmmmm... Let's carve it up and serve it...  lots of tofu; most of the real meat went unnoticed.

Yes, we should lock this one, now.. It wasn't really worth it in the first place..
