IMG_2158.JPGNoyMark CS8412 + 8 x TDA1541A parallel battery powered nos dac project5411 viewsI built a few big power set tube amps with big triodes such GM70, 833. I wanted to do something different and completed my first diy nos battery powered DAC project. It use CS8412 as digital receiver and 8 X PHILIPS TDA1541A parallel as dac circuit. As buffer, i used two mono opamps OPA627. It uses no digital or analog filter. Sounding incredible natural (even one of my friend describing it as organic), warm and also detailed. Very silent background. I am very happy to do this equipment, otherwise i had to pay very big money for same sound. After charging the batteries, it works more than 10hours continuously. When i turn off the dac, it charges the batteries automatically. You can see other photos below:

DSCF0794-C.JPGDIY-GENE Mark Levinson Clone 60Watt Class A Amplifier3889 viewsFor those that are less willing to create their own cases. Here is a completed DIY-GENE Mark Levinson Clone 60Watt / Ch Dual Mono Amplifier. It is hernia inducing weighing in at nearly 50Kg. The kit comes with most of the amplifier electronics built and tested and with all the casing components. All you need to do is to build the PSUs and put it all together. This example has 2 x 65-0-65V at 10A each. It runs very HOT as you would expect a high output Class A amplifier to run. Great care must be taken to mount the 12 x Output Transistors correctly, a small mistake cost me over £60.00 in burnt components. Note the Capacitor connections and the extremely BEEFY PSU.

6EM7-SE-Amp.jpg
6EM7-SE-Amp.jpgSE 6EM7 Power Amplifier2126 viewsYet another 6EM7 power amplifier. This time some parts were down graded and a different internal layout technique was used. The power transformer and choke are isolated top and bottom by rubber grommets. This ensures no AC vibration reaches the tubes. The initial power supply filtering is preceded with a on-board power filter, a 20uF/450V electrolytic capacitor and a 20H/100mA Hammond choke. The HT is supplied by a Hammond power transformer and Sovtek 5Y3 rectifier tube. The second stage of filtering is 47uF and 100uF electrolytic with a large limiting resistor ensure the amp is totally free from of hum and noise. All power supply capacitors are snubbed.

This amp sounds better than the last and I think it may be the Sylvania NOS 6EM7 tubes. Sprague orange drops are used in the inter-stage coupling and once more large non-polarized capacitors for the bypass on the power tubes. For the first time I have used Chinese made H&K 15W audio output transformers, can't fault them. The look of the amp is almost under-stated "sexy" and the sound the same - sexy and natural.

UPDATE - June 2015 - see the 6EM7 Single-Ended Triode (SET) Vertical Amplifier project page for the latest revision of this amplifier.

DIY-6AS7-Tube-Headphone-Amplifier.jpg
DIY-6AS7-Tube-Headphone-Amplifier.jpgDIY 6AS7 Tube Headphone Amplifier3230 viewsMy name is Laurie. I have been building and DIYing for 45 years now and happily will never stop. This tube headphone amp is from a thread in the Form.

The power connecting cable comes from a European Travel Iron I bought for $1.00 at junk shop. (220v/6A) They will be shortened when I find a perch for the amp and me. The sound is better than my ears have ever heard so I will be keeping this one for my retirement entertainment should such a time ever come. Wink It has worked from day one and continues to please me every time it is turned on. The tubes are JJ ECC88 / 6AS7 with a 5V4 rectifier tube. To spite it's small size the parts are quite easily accessed. I over built most components so it will outlast me I fear. The only change I anticipate may be the 6AS7 to a bottle neck glass to match the rectifier tube. I do have and use a 6080 tube, but i can tell no difference in sound. It will take more then a few hours of listening to get my ears better tuned.

4-channel-400W-amplifier.jpg
4-channel-400W-amplifier.jpg 4 channel, 400 W amplifier2498 viewsThis 4-channel 400 W amplifier uses Hypex UcD400HG modules together with the corresponding power supply.
The whole is mounted inside a Galaxy 330 x 230 x 80 case.
For building instructions, have a look at this project's wiki.
Two such amplifiers has been working for over 2 years in my lounge, driving Linn Komponent 110 loudspeakers which each have 4 speaker inputs.

E88CC-SV83-SET-Amplifiers.jpgDual SV83 SET Amplifiers2655 viewsA mirrored pair of SET amplifiers, presently being used in bridged mode. All P2P construction using silver solder. I included a "Hazen grid" capacitor and input tube bias change switch. The single mA meter displays individual output tube bias current with a Left/Right switch. Edcor XPRW178 power transformer and GXSE10-6-8K output transformers. Upgraded caps to Jantzen Audio 1200V Z-Superior. Upgraded resistors to PRP PR9372 Audio for metal film and TAKMAN REX for carbon film. ALPS Blue 100K attenuator. The power supply uses a RCA 5U4GB rectifier and Hammond 156R choke. Matched pairs of Svetlana SV83 for power and JJ E88CC for the input tube.

6V6-Push-Pull-Amplifier.jpgPush-Pull (PP) 6V6GT Tube Amplifier2210 viewsThis 6V6 amp was built following the DIY Push-Pull (PP) 6V6 / 6V6GT Tube Amplifier Schematic. Power Supply transformer and Output transformers are handmade in Argentina by NavasBaccino. I'd like to thank Brad S. for the help. The sound is amazing and clear, free of distortion.
