    A Very Nice Tube Phono Preamp

    Now it is time to enjoy music and our short summer here in northern Finland. Next steps during autumn could be tube rolling and maybe trials with some optional new parts. In the analogue part of my ANK DAC stands two Raytheon 5687s, so it will be easy to test them after some break-in period. I...

    A Very Nice Tube Phono Preamp

    Phono preamp is now alive and kicking😁. I did one simple mistake with wiring and it gave out a very low sound level. It took many evenings to find it with my old eyes. However, it was worth waiting. Sound is exellent, a nice tubey sound but with detail and punch. Dynamics is suprisingly good...

    Yes, that is clear. It just looks a bit odd as the power transformer looks tiny beside it.

    A Very Nice Tube Phono Preamp

    Both PS and amplifier units are now assembled. Until now no problems encountered. However, I by accident clicked a wrong button and ordered a wrong 10H choke for the PS. It is low in resistance, high in max current (300mA) and huge in size😆. You'll see it afterwards when I show the pictures of...

    A Very Nice Tube Phono Preamp

    I have started the build of the phono pre. I will stick precisely to Salectric's schematic but the components will be mostly different. Similarities concerning components are the transformers and chokes by Hammond and resistors in RIAA section by Vishay. I will include a SUT in the amplifier...

    A Very Nice Tube Phono Preamp

    I have been looking at different options concerning components and their availability in different sources. Salectric, can you give advice on W and V ratings of 100K and 10K resistors and 0.1 uF capacitor added between B+ and heater supply -, or do you recommend certain brands/types for these? I...

    A Very Nice Tube Phono Preamp

    It is few months since last posts in this thread. It would be nice to hear if anybody has built a unit with this schematic. I think I will give it a try and start a build. I have a really nice solid state phono pre by Whest Audio, and it has been playing already over a decade. However, it would...

    Thanks Salectric. My system has a passive Slagle AVC + 300B SET amp, if I remember right you had a very similar type of a system. So there should be no issues with compatibility?

    A Very Nice Tube Phono Preamp

    Hi all, My first post at this Forum😊 A question to Salectric: you have used Slagle 1:1 as OPT. I believe you used this because you had it on hand. 1:1 turns ratio is not common to use as OPT, do you see this as optimum or would you recommend something else? Others can give their opinions as...
