Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

But consider this?

You state that SE tube amps sound very good. And I have built a few myself albeit strapped Tetrodes, not the classic triodes. My experience was so-so. But I also did not have the right speakers or high quality SE OPTs.

But if such were true, where is the commercial application of SE triode amps today?

Why are they strictly a hobbyist curiousity these days? The classics were the WE theater amps of the 1930s. Yet today most commercial theaters use Crown or QSC. Why?
