Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

Crazy good!

They are not the easiest to implement; they can be more challenging than to dial in, stability can be an issue, and the output tube is left exposed if the driver fails. There are ways of mitigating these practical challenges. I reckon the sonic advantages of direct-coupling outweigh its disadvantages.

The amp I'm currently designing (I've just finished designing the sub-chassis and mounts) will be a 6C6 direct-coupled to a 2A3 running at low dissipation. Don't know what it will sound like - hopefully different (maybe "better"?) than my present amp.
