K-16LS-Tube-Amplifier-Kit-Hammond-OPT.jpgK-16LS Tube Amp Kit with Hammond OPT6602 viewsAndy's son put also together a K-16LS Tube amplifier kit with the additional tone control preamp section. He used Hammond Output Transformers in place of the ones which came with the kit. See see his Andy's webpage for more photos and information.

Also, additional information about the S-5 kits is available at the Tube Amplifier Kit page.

TDA2003-DIY-HiFi-Amplifier.jpgTDA2030 DIY HiFi Amplifier6596 viewsAnother excellent looking build by vortchun. This DIY amplifier is built around the TDA2030 which will put out a maximum of 14W. The wooden enclosure matches the previously completed Voight Pipe Speakers Visaton BG 17 driver project.

For full details of this TDA2030 chip amplifier build, see the TDA2030 DIY Amplifier thread on the discussion forum.

DIY-Three-Way-Tower-HiVi-Loudspeakers.JPGDIY Three Way Tower HiVi Loudspeakers6545 viewsThese are David's version of the DIY 3-Way HiVi Tower Loudspeakers by Adam. Each of the three-way tower loudspeakers uses one HiVi F8 woofer, two HiVi F5 mid-woofers and a HiVi RT1C-A Planar Isodynamic Tweeter. The tower loudspeakers follow the plans for Adam's build with the exception that a HiVi Research RT1C-A is used in place of the HiVi SD1.1A.

2SK1058-SE-Mosfet-Amp.jpg
2SK1058-SE-Mosfet-Amp.jpg2SK1058 Single-Ended (SE) Amplifier6453 viewsThis Class-A power amplifier with zero negative feedback and 5W output audio power was built based on the schematic of the DIY Class-A 2SK1058 MOSFET Amplifier project by Mark Houston.

The amplifier uses a custom handmade choke coil.
The power supply uses 4 x 15000 µF Towa capacitors designed for Adcom.
Two large heatsinks and one 88mm fan provide enough cooling to keep the temperature below 60°C.
The amplifier is used with custom made sensitive acoustics.
The sound is very precise and detailed. It has deep sound staging and amazing microdynamics.

K_16LS_Tube_Amp_Kit_with_PL_Preamp_Kit.jpg
K_16LS_Tube_Amp_Kit_with_PL_Preamp_Kit.jpgK-16LS Tube Amp Kit with PL Tube Preamp6406 viewsAfter months of looking I finally decided on the S-5 Electronics K-16LS stereo tube amplifier kit together with its sister PL tube preamplifier kit. The Stereo Integrated Tube Amplifier produces up to 16W and utilizes 5670 triode and 6005 pentode tubes. The PL tube preamp kit uses a 5670 triode tube.

I ditched the supplied wood board for a larger board to accommodate the preamp. Using my IPod and a set of Celestion floorstanders (90dB) I sat back to listen. WOW - seriously loud. Bass is fantastic, treble is sharp. Mid range seems to be missing a bit but after trying different tracks I am putting this down to poor quality source MP3 via the IPod. There is a reasonable amount of hum when you take the volume up but nothing annoying.

Next step is to attempt the mods for the K-12 kits.

ClubPreampComp.jpgMelbourne Audio Club preamp comparison night equipment6398 viewsFor the preamp comparison my 12AX7 Tube Preamp and OP Amp Preamp were used. My Gainclone monoblocks were used for the power amps. The speakers in the other image were built by a club member also. An A/B switch was used to switch from one preamp to the other under a blind test situation. This allowed a quick comparison between the two very different preamps. Though the chip preamp was voted the better (60/40) many still expressed their preference for the valve preamp.

6SN7-6L6-Tube-Amp-1.jpg
6SN7-6L6-Tube-Amp-1.jpg6SN7 / 6L6 DIY Tube Amp6365 viewsThe valve lineup for each channel is a 6SN7 as first amplifier and phase splitter, followed by another 6SN7 driving a pair of 6L6s. Bias is set by active semiconductor current sinks. The 400V HT is generated by a double anode diode (5R4) driving a choke input filter. The audio output transformers are Hammond Manufacturing 1620s. With a conservative rating of 20W per channel, measured frequency response is 10Hz to 40KHz with minimal square wave overshoot. I'm very pleased with how this unit sounds and looks.
