  • DC filaments/heaters used throughout
  • Film capacitors used throughout
  • Choke filtering for the power and driver stages
  • Toroidal filament transformers for the 2A3s

The Motherlode II is my flagship line-stage preamplifier! Delivering an organic, yet extremely fast and transparent rendition of the audio signal using boutique parts throughout. Both 6SN7s and 6SL7s can be used in this model. NOTE: Use CONTACT US for ordering.

  • 6SN7 or 6SL7 compatible
  • Exclusive film capacitor power supply
  • 3 chokes
  • Toroidal power transformer
  • Tube rectified using a 5U4. 5U4G or 5U4GB

This amplifier allows either a single 300B (SET) or parallel 300Bs (PSET) per channel capable of 9 or 18 watts per channel respectively via two switches on top of the amplifier which adjusts the filament current and bias points for the amplifier making it extremely flexible and capable of driving many more speakers than a standard SET amplifier! NOTE: Use CONTACT US for ordering.

  • 6SN7 input stage in SRPP mode
  • 6V6 driver stage in triode-strapped mode
  • 300B SET or PSET output stage
  • Audyn True Copper foil coupling capacitors
  • custom-made output transformers with silver lead out wires

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.

  • 6SN7 input stage in SRPP mode
  • 6V6 driver stage in triode-strapped mode
  • 300B single ended output stage
  • Audyn True 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.

  • 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

The Motherlode XL is a fully balanced differential line-stage which compounds on the popular Motherlode II platform. It features 2 sets of balanced XLR inputs, 2 sets of RCA inputs, and one set each of balanced XLR and RCA outputs utilizing high-end broadcast-quality transformers. Several other upgrades have been added to this model to bring performance to an even higher level. NOTE: Please use CONTACT US for ordering.

  • Fully transformer balanced Inputs using Jensen transformers 
  • Fully transformer balanced Outputs using Edcor transformers   
  • Designed exclusively to use the 6SN7   
  • Exclusive film capacitor power supply   
  • Clarity Cap TC series power supply finals  

Taking my KT88 120 single-ended Amplifier to an even higher level of performance! level! Now using a toroidal power transformer for reduced noise, Miflex KPCU coupling caps and an improved driver circuit.This amplifier has many upgrades which combine to create a truly remarkable performer that provides more power and tube rolling options! NOTE: Use CONTACT US for ordering.

  • Solid hardwood chassis with thick aluminum top and bottom plates
  • Copper shielded chassis
  • Toroidal power transformer for very low noise and no EMI
  • Oversized 30 watt output transformers
  • Dead silent at idle and no self noise

I've brought back my Super 211/845 SET amplifier featuring several substantial updates in both sonics and reliability while maintaining the absolute balls out SET presentation provided by these tubes. NOTE: Please use CONTACT US for ordering.

  • Allows use of either 211 or 845 power triodes by changing bias settings via two switches
  • Massive output transformers allow bass down to 20 hz and extend beyond 20khz
  • Can be driven directly from a 2 volt source such as a DAC or streamer with built in volume control
  • Balanced inputs can be added upon request
  • 6SN7 input stage

Redesigned from the ground up! Now featuring an over-built outboard tube rectified and regulated power supply. Many updates to the circuit and componentry throughout to punch well above its weight class! NOTE: Use CONTACT US for ordering.

  • 1 Set of Stereo MM Phono inputs
  • 1 set of stereo line level outputs
  • true analog design
  • 100% point to point wired
  • (2) 12AX7's for RIAA correction and gain

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.

  • 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.

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