Home Tube DIY Asylum

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

RE: What an astonishingly insightful (and iconoclastic) assessment of some formerly revered designs....

"It isn't the device. Triodes can be very linear. It's the topology of single ended and no device can fix that."

Can you give a technical explanation for that claim?

If the tube was perfectly linear (and none are) then there would be no mechanism for producing harmonic distortion, whatever topology.


With push pull the even order harmonic distortions are canceled but not the even ordered harmonic distortions.

Push pull brings it's own set of challenges.

Either way, HD is caused by the non-linearity of the device.

I believe that you have been misinformed.
