The reason for this amp is to allow the use of a series of tubes. However, the 6CG7 (6SN7) is a different beast. Here is a design for a 6CG7/6SN7 version which, coincidentally, will also make use of your 100kΩ Alps potentiometer.

We did discuss this tube a while back when suggesting other 6V heater tubes:

Thanks Chris! :thumbsup:

I had totally forgotten about that whole series of posts. Another good reasons to go back through these threads from time to time.

I have a spare 100K ALPS Blue Velvet POT can i used this for the 4S
Unfortunately, 100kΩ is too small to use in this design as is. However, if you replace the 250kΩ pot in the design with just a 250kΩ resistor, you can put the 100kΩ pot on the front end and it will work fine.

Hi Matt,
I will get the 250K instead i still need to order some parts anyway,This 4S is to drive the Headphone amp that you designed by the way the more i listened to this amp the more i like it to my ears it is comparable to the kit that i got which the kit is 3X more expensive.Thanks again!

Alex

Nope.

Power transformers are all HI-Pot tested these days and transformer microphonics is practically non-existant in modern units. Personally I always make sure I have a good ground between the chassis and the transformer end bells. This just makes shielding that much better and provides a guaranteed ground path in the event of catastrophic transformer failure. The industry chassis ground bonding standard is 2mΩ.

I just started working on the amp and realized i don't have enough solid core wires the local supplier only have 20 gauge stranded wires, is there advantage on using a solid vs stranded,Which type of wires(Solid or stranded)do you guys used for your build?Thanks!

I use solid core only in the audio path. Usually wire-wrap wire which fine copper wire with a silver plating. Or more recently solid core Cat5. I never use shielded wire for interconnects or in wiring amps and preamps.
