Re: Rozenblit 300B SEOTL 1.5W

I was suggesting that the 300B SE-OTL that Kelvin compared with the Pinnacle would have been the DC heater version of the kit, i.e. not the same 300B SE-OTL as mine and Wolfgang's. He also has the Pinnacle 300B PP-OTL, again built from the kit. I would still be interested in hearing my 300B SE-OTL w...

Re: Rozenblit 300B SEOTL 1.5W

On the Rozenblit BB Kelvin from Glasgow clearly likes both SE and PP versions and comes out just prefering the PP. IIRC Kelvin has the DC kit version of the 300B SE-OTL; it's not the same as the verson Wolfgang and I have built and I don't believe it is as good (too many Rozenblit compromises). Tha...

Re: Rozenblit 300B SEOTL 1.5W

Does anyone have experience of hearing the SE vs PP? Thinking on this further, I've built the 300B SE-OTL (much modified from the originally published version) and it was highly rated by the guys at the 2017 Owston meeting (about 80% down Simon's blog); http://simonsnewadventuresinhifi.blogspot.com...

Re: Rozenblit 300B SEOTL 1.5W

I've just about convinced myself to build the Pinnacle PP. Does anyone have experience of hearing the SE vs PP? Wolfgang has heard both the Pinnacle and the 300B SE-OTL and can probably give some insight. As an alternative, with those speakers, you might consider this project; http://www.audio-talk...

Re: Rozenblit 300B SEOTL 1.5W

Why don't you build the much better sounding SE DC version? Not the AC version from the book (hum) and not the TS DC version but the version which Ray and myself have build with the JB output stage. And its 1W into 8ohms unless you decrease NFB if you have the right speakers for this. Yep, the DC v...

Re: Nothing In Particular

We returned from a walk the other evening only to find the front door woukdn't open and no back door key with us - had no option but to break into the house. I had to break a small window (cheapest to replace I reasoned) so I could reach to open a bigger window so I could climb in - fortunately I ha...

Or in other words, acting as a wind shield that the others can hide behind :D
Indeed Mike, though to be fair to the others, I was one of the stronger riders in the group and I do most of my riding alone so I'm used to shifting air. I had the satnav too.
