The Motherlode XL

The Motherlode XL


The Motherlode XL features a 2 chassis design with aseparate power supply with "twist-lock" umbilicals. The power supplyemploys a split toroidal power transformer, Hybrid bridge rectifier, all filmcapacitor filtering, 2 main chokes which help filter the B+, and then each channel is split to an additional choke and a Clarity Cap TC series capacitor is the final component in each channel stage. Vishay wire-wound resistors and a 5U4G rectifier and (2) OD3 regulators andcopper shielding round out the power supply. The preamplifier uses Takman carbon composition resistors throughout the tube signalpath, a Khozmo remote volume controller, dual Miflex PIO coupling capacitors per channel, tube isolation damper plates, a resistor-based outputlevel control and Neutrik connectors in the same curly-maple chassis (Note: The Motherlode II purpleheart chassis can be substituted, please let me know at the time of ordering). Full compliment of tubes included (please inquire for selection)
