    Default What should I upgrade on my 1A?

    I have been listening to my Forte 1A a lot and have been loving it. However, what good piece of equipment couldn't be made better with a few updates. :D Here are my ideas and please let me know what you think.

    -Add a toggle switch and a pair of Jensen Transformer JT-10KB-D to create a balanced set of inputs.

    -I also think that it would benefit from a cap upgrade and maybe other internals because of age. Which caps should I upgrade to get the best results?

    Thanks for the help anyone and I'll try to keep my carpet from catching on fire when I use it to drive my 84db sensitive speakers.

    As for the caps, how much room do you have and what values?

    I thought the schematic posted earlier, but I guess not.

    Have you checked over at

    www.diyaudio.com

    in both the solid state and Pass Labs forum? There are some threads over there and I'm sure if you posted a question in the Pass Labs forum, Nelson himself might give some insight.

    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass

    I've spent some time over there and asked Nelson a few questions myself, but I thought I'd start here with my CP homies... :D
