Home Tube DIY Asylum

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

26 preamp

The first one is active crossover. 2C51 amplifies high frequencies, with 22 nF capacitor acting as a high pass filter. The 26 section amplifies low frequencies, with output transformer acting as low pass filter. In this implementation, a cheap output transformer is needed with relatively high leakage inductance.

The choice of 2C51 is strange. Its amplification factor of 35 is grossly mismatched with that of 26 (mu=8). Otherwise, it is a nice linear triode with low Miller capacitance and low Rp, if sections are paralleled.
