Home Tube DIY Asylum

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

RE: Very good point.

"In a typical AB2 tube stage, drivers output impedance should not exceed 500-600 Ohm. This can only be achieved by a combination of low Rp PP driver stage AND a step-down interstage transformer."

It can also be accomplished using cathode followers reactively coupled to the output stage with chokes (or a center-tapped choke). Altec did this in the 1570B, and I used it for my A2 211s.

Buy Chinese. Bury freedom.
