I'm looking for input on what to build next. Here's a list of power amps I've built prior.

Abdellah/Gendrano KT88SE (sold)
DGSE-1 (optimized Magnavox 8600) (sold)
DIY Zen SE84 (current amp)

I'm leaning towards building another KT88 (EL-34) SE in triode. I miss that amp......buuuut I've also always wanted to hear a true DHT like a 2A3.

Then, I've been curious about direct coupled amps and/or mono blocs. Also have been looking at a Tubelab Simple SE. Anyone have an epiphany building those?

Speakers are DIY 3Pi horns, 95dB sensitivity and I DO use subs. I listen almost exclusively to jazz, but change it up with some pop and 70's soft rock. I have a Yamaha M2 for when I want to rock out.

Comments, advice much appreciated!

A interstate friend (also a member here) built an Hiraga KT88 SE amp. Used 30W OPTs. Had incredible bass, fab build and sounded glorious. Look up the schematic and see why you think.

Projects: "Carbon” - MM phono preamp | 180W RAW Class D amp | "Illusion" - 6SN7 SRPP preamp in a plastic jiffy box | “Salt Cellar” - Mono 807 triode integrated amp |
