No need to home brew anything, cheap too. It's probably cheaper than buying the plug itself and some wire.

I don't know if anyone has these lying around, but if you want to be cheap, Jameco has 24V split-bobbin transformers @ $2.xx, with a wallwart case @ $2.xx, it's not bad (shipping alone is high). I've got about a half-dozen of those around so I don't need to buy a transformer/wallwart case, and @ 24V it's 800mA. Just an FYI.

No worries mate! Blutarsky is interested in the matched pair of Bugle Boys for his Dared mono-blocks.

Well, I don't think the 6Dj8s will show, but it sounds prett good with these 12BH7s...

I had an issue with my 24v reg - it was working a little over voltage. Thanks to Alex and Chris and all the prototypers for the help and support.

Still to do - reroute/make neat the wiring, fix e12 transistor. I haven't had a chance to listen much - I'll take it to work and see if I can get a few hours in today.

First impressions - quite good SQ from this tiny performer...

Great! What a wacky coincidence... I just got my Sylvania 12BH7a in the mail yesterday & was listening to it last night Do like it too, maybe somewhere in the middle of my pack of tubes. But, like I posted elsewhere its like blonds vs brunettes... When/if single you find them both fun

Can you see my little heater voltage dwitchin the picture? It's one of the SOHAII rockers, modified to be SPST and perched on top of some resistor cutoffs. Listening with an RCA BP 5963 now, quite nice.

Nice... Perhaps I will recommend the same to my wife, but maybe NOT this weekend And very remiss that I left out redheads.

Will your little darling be ready for her date this weekend? Don't think the guys would mine what she's wearing... She could even go topless & they wouldn't mind. ( Meaning your new amp, of course, not your wife I'd not even try to bring my wife to a meet)

Can my wife borrow one of her french maid outfits when you come to the head-fi meet tomorrow? I'm gonna see if I can get my wife to wear it for me some night soon...
post #240 of 2213
Ready and Topless, yes! Listened to her a bit today at work with the gamma-1 - nice combo.

Don't have a maid's outfit, but the latex nun suit will fall right off her - er, the amp...
