awesome job Nate. i love the G-10 epoxy glass and turrets. i used the same for my PS smoothing caps in my F5. any noise issues with the PEC pot?

That's a really nice amp, congrats. Who made the output transformers? How does it sound compared to the menace? Specially since it has such a different topology.

Nope, no noise issues so far. And the turrets are a really great way to do secure PTP layouts, I'll be using them on everything now.

The output transformers were made by Electraprint. As to how it might compare to the original, that's like asking me to compare my kids. What I can say is that the original was somewhat hit or miss with low impedance headphones and the Lite is much better suited to this duty both in terms of output impedance and gain. Without a doubt the Lite sounds better with my HF-2s, I can't say whether or not that impression would hold true with other headphones.

Nate, that’s a really lovely work - congrats, looking forward to the schematic.

x2. my friend who builds guitar amps turned me on to turrets. it's a really cool/fun technique to use and build with as well.

all 3 of the PECs i've recently used do have some noise from time to time.

These little guys.

Premounted on octal socket terminal boards

Individual terminal posts


And fish that's a huge bummer about the PEC pots, I'm hoping my luck is better.

The MenaceTC Lite seems like a really cool project, great work Nate!
Are you planning to share the schematic? I think I already have a lot of the parts needed, I have a C-14X choke sitting in a box and an Antek 1T150 power transformer from an aborted project. I also have some NOS 6AS7 and 6SN7 tubes that I got for free from a friend at work who is into HAM radio stuff

Yup, absolutely. I only have a rough hand-drawn version right now which does not include some essential information so I'd rather not post that. I'll try to put something together before the end of the year, feel free to remind me occasionally.

Is it possible to know what connectors you used in The Menace OTL ? I think they are amphenol but I do not know which one exactly. Thanks for any answer.

Yes, they were amphenol connectors, from the ecomate series IIRC.
