Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Uncle Meat am I reading this right. The 6L6 and or KT-88 has a lower 3 harmonic distortion rate compared to the EL34. And the human ear picks upon 3rd harmonic distortion more than any other? End result I might should be looking for a Beam Tetrode tube instead of the EL34 Pentode type tube? Thanks f...

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Cool. Anything in the 25 to 45wpc would be awesome!

Just don't tell anybody I'm looking for lower power...I might get banned from Carverfest. :-$

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Any guess on power output with the EL34's? I have lots of high power amps, with these amps I'm looking for the sweetest sound I can get.

The Vintage EL34's are affordable compared to vintage KT88's or 6550's.

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Just making sure that the EL34 / 6CA7 type tube will work in this amp??

Without tube socket changes??

Just bias adjustment only??

Looking at some Mullard xf2 EL34 1965 vintage nos tubes.

SNOOP help a brotha out I got the tube fever and the only cure is more vintage tube smell!!!

Re: VTF scale tale

First thing I thought was magnet? Then read the rest of your post. Good catch. Turn Tables are the never ending tune up, the more time you spend with them the better they sound.

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

RobertR, I have a question. Not holding you to anything here just wondering if the initial $350 plus final $300 is for the amp kit only with no tubes at all?

Thanks for all your doing!

Nice looking system Brian, I bet it sounds awesome! I listen to solid state a lot but always find myself going back to the toobs :D I took the Cherry's to a local Hifi shop to have some Goldpoint stepped attenuator's installed.

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Robert could you give us an approximate idea of how much power the amp will make with each type of power tube. I think I read somewhere in one of these threads the KT-88 will make about 100/wpc. Here is your quote below from The Bobfather: Quote from Bob: This amp can use KT120s. 6550s, KT88s, 6L6es...
