    Can I plot amplifier frequency using Room Equalization Wizard? It seems to be a microphone based application. I would need to go about the process differently for accurate measurements.

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hello! My name's Cody; I work for TARA Labs. Not here to promote anything, this is just a disclaimer.

  9. Newbie builds tube amp, maybe

    Two Channel Audio
    I'm new at this, but I'm old school at heart. Where would one start to build a 50 WPC two channel tube amp? I'd like to keep the cost under $400. BTW, I know very little about this, but I'm one of those people who learn by doing. So at the very least, I'll know what I did wrong.
  10. Do all vacuum tube electronics distort?

    Two Channel Audio

    Here is how all the pieces went together. The preamp is stacked on top of the phono pre. The 2A3 SET amps are on either side. With high efficiency speakers, this is a very warm and detailed sound with a beautiful midrange.

    Here is my version of the Dynaco ST70 tube amp if it were built today. The only original Dynaco parts are the output transformers. I changed the layout a bit and used more filtering in the power supply section and better parts through out.
