Hi everyone have been reading with interest all about this cool little tube amp.
I have already made one and failed miserably, I'm not too downhearted though - it was my first ever build right from pcb etching to components layout.
All in all it has been a great learning curve and good practical experience with soldering and stuff.
My build started to unravel after the board stuffing.
I wanted to configure the board with the two RCA inputs, headphone output and run off of a SLA battery.
However the build at that point was beyond me I just couldn't work out how to connect everything up.
I'm going to rebuild the whole project from scratch as I inadvertently blew the tube along with I think one of the Mosfets :)
Undaunted iv'e ordered replacements and will try again.
I suppose what i'm really trying to ask is if anyone who has built a working example of the amp in this configuration could possibly help me to understand where and how to connect up the RCA'S , headphone and power this would be amazing and i'd be eternally grateful.
Loving the thread and cant wait to hear my Grado's through this little beauty. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
I'll be wiring in a potentiometer too!!
