My vision of the most pure and transparent platform for the 300B single-ended amplifier. This amplifier delivers the wide midrange that the 300B is famous for, while keeping an extended airy high end and maintaining a solid, deep and extended low end. NOTE: Use CONTACT US for ordering.


Features
  • 6SN7 input stage in SRPP mode
  • 6V6 driver stage in triode-strapped mode
  • 300B single ended output stage
  • Jupiter copper foil coupling capacitors
  • US made Transcendar output and interstage transformers

My re-design of this popular amplifier incorporates better coupling capacitors, improved output transformers, a dead silent toroidal power transformer and more power, finesse and smoothness over the original! Fewer and higher end components provide a transparent 3D soundstage and "meat on the bones" midrange that only SET designs are known for. NOTE: Use CONTACT US for ordering.

Features
  • Class "A" Push-Pull operation- Cathode "Auto-Bias" requires no adjustments and prevents Bias failure issues- 6SN7 input direct-coupled to 6SN7 LTP phase splitter
  • Toroid power transformer for low EMI
  • ALPS input and feedback potentiometers
  • Dual chokes in the power supply provide excellent noise performance
  • Ceramic tube sockets with gold-plated pins

A brand new product due to many requests for a small, single box stereo tube amplifier! This amplifier uses EL84s in triode-strapped mode for just over 2 watts per channel of single-ended sonic bliss! A single 6922/6DJ8, 12AU7, E180CC or 12BH7 is used as the Input and driver stage for both channels. I've fitted this amplifier with many upgrades- Miflex copper foil capacitors, a toroidal power transformer, Transcendar output transformers and lifetime rated film filter caps to name a few! This amplifier can be used with or without a preamplifier. Please use CONTACT US for ordering.

Features
  • Single EL84 per channel
  • 6922/6DJ8, 12AU7, E180CC or 12BH7 driver stage
  • Stereo Output of 2.3 watts per channel
  • 5U4GB tube rectification
  • Large Choke for excellent regulation and ripple rejection

These parallel push-pull mono-blocks are different than any amplifier on the market, as they use two independent push pull amplifiers in each chassis, and sum the signals at the output transformers. Derived from the Transcend Push Pull stereo amplifier, it is able to utilize EL34, KT88, KT120 and KT150 tubes and produces from 40 watts of Triode-strapped sound to 120 watts of ultra-linear power- these mono blocks are robustly over-built and can handle virtually any speaker with ease! NOTE: Use CONTACT US for ordering.

Features
  • UL/Triode mode switchable
  • Variable negative feedback
  • Variable gain
  • Jupiter copper foil coupling capacitors
  • Vishay film capacitors in the power supply
