The Millett Hybrid Maxed - Output Stage
BJT Diamond Buffer
||NOTE - Differences from MOSFET version and updates from prototypes:
RB12L/R trimmers are 2K ohm
QB1L/R JFETs are PN4392
RB4L/R, RB5L/R are 100 ohm
RB8L/R, RB9L/R are jumpered out
Heat sinks can be 1" tall (at builder's discretion)
NOTE: You must decide which output stage to use - either BJT Diamond Buffer or MOSFET Diamond Buffer. You cannot
|Recommendations for the BJT output transistors can be found in the Bill of Materials
Also, please refer to user Steinchen's web site for the revMH Diamond Buffers.
Most of the recommendations for the BJT output transistors are due to his excellent work and reviews on the original Diamond Buffer
boards for the revMH Millett Hybrid.
The BJT Transistor Diamond Buffer version of the Millett is a proven and fully-vetted design, long before the design of the MAX.
For beginners and those desiring the most dependable results, the Diamond Buffer is the first choice for the MAX output stage.
