Another homebrew stereo

Post by tubesrgr8 on Thu Feb 27, 2014 7:07 pm

Understanding just a little about second harmonics and Class A single ended triodes, I decided to build a single ended triode amp. Here's the result, "boasting" about 3 watts per channel. Feeding Jensen 15" speakers, it can make some pretty good sounds. It's admittedly far from the craftsmanship I see in Sal Brindisi's KT88 amp, but in all fairness, it has gone over 5 years without a problem. While listening to Big Bands, Jazz, Swing, and assorted Classic and other LP's, I usually end up with three or four dogs in the recliner with me, which does make it interesting when changing records...

Here it is, sounds better than it looks  Wink . Inputs using 6SL7GTs, and 6SN7GTs driving the 6A5Gs. The output tubes are a story in itself. I bid on a batch of 24 on eBay, won them, and found them to be in the original wartime WWII cartons, padded in shredded vintage newspaper!
