I suggested in the BoZ thread
that the whole of BoZ - both channels - could be completely constructed on the output caps. Because I am using high quality polypropylene 10uF caps there is just enough real estate to construct. And Gio through down the challenge. Thanks Gio!!!
I could have made each channel separate but instead, to make the whole construction look even more compact, I have bonded both output caps together. This means I only have one side to do the total construction. AM I MAD? Remember that this BoZ, similar to my BoZSE, has no input caps (BDP-83SE (source) has output caps) and no attenuator (all sources must have level control).
I feel the secret of why BoZ sounds so incredibly good is the 20,000 to 30,000Ff of storage cap right on the cct. brd. There is no way I can do BoZ on a cap with massive storage caps like this. So BoZ on a Cap or BoZoaC will never sound quite like its fat brother-BoZSE.
I can go part the way there and build BoZoaC with reasonable storage caps onboard and bring along some of those lovely sweet Pass-ages (as in Mr Pass) of construction. Two 1000uf/35V low ESR caps are part of the BoZoaC construction and for good measure I threw in the 1ohm 1W R.
I do not know if this project will see light of day or even Pass music but come along for the journey and see how far we get. The power section has already been partially constructed. Super glue is now my friend. I'm hoping this will become a step-by-step instruction on how-to build a BoZoaC engine.
It is my intention to run this build on batteries (27V) but an external PS will work also. I'm just trying to keep everything mini. Images tomorrow of construction so far and some explanation.
