Home Tube DIY Asylum

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

RE: My experience is the opposite

"of course we could escalate, and use DH tubes for the PP amps.."

Yeah, that's what I meant. DHT for both SE and PP.

"Solid, Class A, PP amps are rather rare"

"Solid" as in what Lynn Olsen calls "deep" Class A?

To my way of thinking a Class A PP amp should run each output tube with the same load impedance (for each tube), same voltages and currents as the tubes would be run in a single ended amp where they HAVE to be run in "Solid Class A".

Otherwise, IMO, it's not really a Class A amp.
