Hi Steve. It was a treat to hear your mk 3 OBs this weekend. I was surprised how different, and how much better, they sounded than the mk 2s. I thought you were a worthy winner on Saturday simply for the new approach that we haven't seen before at a Fest. I'm quite taken with the approach and I fanc...

Hello you too, Andrew.

Must be honest, I haven't checked the datasheet :oops: . They actually were cheaper than chips so I'm not surprised they may not be audio nirvana. I'll have to give them a try Aikidoed driving 300Bs sometime and compare them to Mullard ECC83s...

Hello Colin. I have one and a half headphone amps at the moment. :D The first is the TubeCAD featured here: http://www.glass-ware.com/tubecircuits/Tube_Headphone_Amplifier.html http://www.atrj13.dsl.pipex.com/Images/TubeCAD_headphone_amp/IMG_6002a.JPG Some of my ramblings are here: http://www.atrj13...

Well, I changed the C3g cathode resistors to 68R and connected the 0A2 cathode to earth rather than the top of the cathode resistor, but couldn't hear much difference. Think it's something I need to live with then change back to hear any difference. I tried removing 10uF of the 54uF but the oscillat...

Good point. I'll see what happens if I remove some of the C already there after the change.

Not yet Nick, maybe this weekend. I'll have a look at what I've got and see if I can parallel something up. Interestingly the oscillation came back on Steve's OBs, fortunately Steve had a couple of spare 30uF motor run caps and clipleading these to each channel did the trick. I need to get some big ...

Welcome Mark, Steve and Steve! Aye, another good night last night, and it was nice to finally hear those WE300As in my WE91s. Lovely, lovely valves. If you ever decide you can live without them Steve then I would be very pleased to give them a happy home. :) Hopefully I'll get chance at the weekend ...

Cheers Dave. I feel like a proper amp builder now with the clipleads and breadboard :) Fortunately the amp was playing pretty loud and that deflected much of the initial shock of the amp's appearance. When I put Nick's big 120uF caps in circuit the first one gave off quite a spark, so a sense of per...

Set the C3g-2A3 amp up tonight when I got home and ran it for a few hours. It sounds very nice, plenty of headroom into my 97db Fostex. It's doing something in the bass that the WE91 with KRs doesn't, very nice. The missus was a bit shocked when she got home though to find a breadboard in the sittin...

Hi Andrew,

Okay, be interesting to see if they're any good. I'll bring the Mullards too.
