New kid on the block; http://korgnutube.com/en/
I've ordered one from RS Australia AU$65.

Been looking at that one, though it is a bit pricey. It's interesting that is built up almost like a VFD. And talking of VFDs, seen some experimting using that kind of display as an amplifyer. Besides, it holds an anode, a cathode and a control grid, hower directly heated. :idea:

I have in the project pile the single transistor amp (2sk1058) and have a bunch of 6S31B as predriver, but a Nutube would look nicer. 8-)

One objection: How the H*** could they give the tube the number 6N1P. There's a Russian tube, widely used with that number!!! :confused:

Let us know how it sounds.
I got the engineering pre-release email a few years back on that thing and couldn't help but think it's design made it inherently noisy.

Cheers!

Agree on two counts, pricey and silly name.

And Geek, they talk of the noise issues.

I was reading a few months ago on a DIY using this tube. It caught me as just different enough to be worth trying but after reading all and between the lines i decided "no" due to an obvious noise sensitivity issue and microphonics.

Took an hour to workout filament connections but now have it sorted. Mine arrived.

AN HOUR!!!!! How many connections do you have??! :confused:

I am into the same kind of stuff but my tube will (hopefully) show the time of day. And I managed to pick out the connections with a help of a Rosette-pdf (Russian/German)

Seriously, the Nutube and my display are made up in a similar fashion. Directly heated cathode, grids and anodes and both are glowing (blue/green?) in the dark. I've seen projects where an VFD has been used as an amplifier and once, it would be cool testing that myself. But for the time beeing, I stick to trying to find a good way to "power up" my display and following this thread. (Got a apir of Russian clock-IC waiting to be picked up).

Sorry for OT.

Just discovered that the guy who bought my latest tube HP amp - Sanctum - has already built something with a Nutube.

Anode Dissipation: 1.7mW

Milliwatts....

Is this a typo?

Should power a pair of Wilsons.
