Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

RE: 2 stages High Power SE


Dowdy is a LONG TIME friend of mine, and I have had his amp, with Jim there, on my speakers in my living room.

I personally do NOT like a low or medium mu driver tube in a two stage amp, it makes it lifeless unless pushed hard to my ears.

You can triode connect a 7788 and pull off a big tube Finals amp OK, but if you really need that power, you have the wrong speakers, and /or should be using GOOD solid state, because it will outperform amateur builds I have seen. Overall, I prefer a 2A3 amp.
