Re: 6B4G - The Resurrection Shuffle

I use a cascaded CCS and a grid choke on the 12GN7 anode for the GK-71 amps.

The cascaded CCS is almost as good as a separate PSU for the driver, so I'm told.

I have seen it in print somewhere that a trioded GK-71 sounds better than a normal GM70, but I can't remember where.

error in link?

Seems there is an Audio talk portion added to the front of that link, never had that before ?

Can't seem to cut and paste that link on Chrome. :(

Me too...i'm falling behind!
I must be as well then. :shock:

The VB web site was lost along with its forums and never really recovered, activity seems very very low and beholden to very few people... there's no critical mass...
That's a shame, I was going to use a spare PC to make a VB unit. :(
