Home Tube DIY Asylum

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


Hi Jeff,

In that case, maybe you should ask "what will be the most reliable part I can use" and seek a 1600 VDC PIV part that can do Amperes. Beats an amp failing, and with solid state you want to over-rate it to get it reliable.

The VAC in my new 6AQ5 SE stereo amp is 318 VAC, and I am starting out with a 1600 VDC at 35 A. bridge.
