Bridge to Mono?
09/18/20 at 05:24:31
 
Can Taboo be bridged to mono the way the triode amps can?
Would bridging defeat the Lucid mode?

The Taboo design has a virtual ground that can not be bonded to the regular ground without doubling the gain and ruining the sound.  That means you can't connect the two negative speaker jacks together or to ground. It also means you can not measure this amp with a scope unless you can decouple it across it's entire bandwidth.  The amp can not be bridged mono.  You could use a pair to bi-amp some speakers with good success though.

Thank you, Steve.
I am glad to get the answer. I always like learning about circuit design.
