Home Tube DIY Asylum

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

Got the other channel up and running ....

Just had to go back through the schematic and plus up the breadboard in a few places. Turns out my breadboard psu is just fine for running both channels. Ended up with a B+ of 360 vdc and a B+2 of 275 vdc. Lots of gain, nice clean sound, even on my small jbl test speakers. Time to hook it up to my Altec Granadas and see if I can tweak it a bit. Also want to try one channel with the output tube in triode mode instead of pentode as it is now. Here is a pic of one channel and the psu, I am also using my test bench filaments supply for the 6bq5 filaments. Don't let all the wires fool you. If you look at the schem I posted below you will see that each channel is just a handful of parts. It's a great candidate for a poster child for the KISS principle.
