Re: Owston meet 2019 >1&2 June

Re: Owston meet 2019 >1&2 June

Yeah it's in my diary too. Would really like to listen to Steve's speakers before then though and maybe get the recipe.

Re: Remember These?

Interesting that Jac van de Wald has something to say about this tube, he normally knows what he's talking about.

It sits on industrial heavy duty runners in my cupboard, with the power supply next to it. I think the amp is about 20Kgs and the PSU about 15kgs.
Oh, hang on. Power supply only 15kgs ? Mine is over 20Kgs. Must try harder !

Re: Finished and working - 12 valve all DHT PP 26-71a-45

I look forward to bringing it to the next meet. I'll need some notice to book the roadies ... I can only hope it's as good as the one I built for Geoff - that makes a pair of Lowther DX4s in bog standard cabs sound SPECTACULAR ! I'd love to hear this driving Steve's superb speakers from the last mee...

Re: Finished and working - 12 valve all DHT PP 26-71a-45

HAHA true. You should try turning it over ! It sits on industrial heavy duty runners in my cupboard, with the power supply next to it. I think the amp is about 20Kgs and the PSU about 15kgs. Andrews DC boards are the only silicon in there. The DC boards for the 71A are mounted inside the amp, they a...

Re: Finished and working - 12 valve all DHT PP 26-71a-45

Well my own amp build has turned out to be a long hard slog, with hours stolen here and there between work. Last lap now, I thought Andrew might like this shot showing the first 2 of his 12 DC boards in the amp, on its back being wired. Since this photo the next 2 have gone in and all four have been...

Re: SRA/VTA adjustment and tube distortion

If you go from 0.38% to 0.29%, isn't that a 25% improvement?

Re: Yorkshire Hi-Fi Club

It's touch and go whether my amp will be completed in time, but I'd love to bring it along if possible.

Very old school design. By which I mean heavy.

Having not been to one of these before, what's the format? Do people bring along kit for demo & comment?

Re: DHT Heater using VCCS - PCB or Kit (Possible Group buy)

I have some boards from Andrew (thanks) and will be putting in an order soon for components (after I check what I have in stock).

Anyone need any of the components for the boards? I doubt there will be enough interest to make any price difference but you never know.
