In Reply to: RE: who uses different wire colors in amps? posted by rockdoc on March 04, 2017 at 14:44:11
I think there really is only "one" option - for highest possible performance and quality...build the simplest.
Two stage, direct coupled, with a mu of 100 driver tube, and a LSES power supply. All the rest, I find, is second fiddle to that.
TCSS is OK, seven strands of three different gauge 5N copper wire, in teflon, about 19 AWG. Today, I enjoy using Mil Spec M22759/11 a whole lot, its multi stranded copper, silver plated, teflon jacketed, in various gauges...12, 14, 16 and 18 AWG. Many pretty colors, a JOY to work with...eBay .... low-ball the Sellers.

Thanks Jeff! Got a favorite schematic?
Yeah, schematic and a written description for you - also. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will arrange to talk over this weekend, Sunday, afternoon on - you call me or vice versa. That is by far, the best way to get things communicated !!
In all your prior amp owning and listening, I think you were using a two stage 45 amp and a three stage 2A3 amp. You haven't yet heard what a 2A3, particularly, a JJ 2A3-40 can do, until you go two stage, and direct coupled. Perfect for your speakers, and tastes.
