A Very Compact Hybrid Amp - Page 17

post #241 of 2213
A pic from our meet, this amp belongs on a table with the bigger boys... Very nice sounding with headphones (RS-1s) costing 5X what the amp does

Is that 5x including the $250 6-foot APS V3 cable?

The amp sounded very good to my ears, and I should have spent more time with it, but I didn't need a lot of time to listen to know I liked it.

I need one of these tube amps in my life. Badly.

Finished the mini3 earlier today, and the smell of solder fumes is addictive.

The smell of hot tubes is almost as addictive as the sound, my friend!

Just round it to 8X! Naaman inspired me - I'm working on hardwood ends and details for this build...

I think that this will be my first valve amp build, even found some old ECC82 tubes in my Dads garage, which'll be nice.

Out of interest, if the prototype builds go well, when do you guys think that the first pcbs will be on sale?

I'm working on that now Wilf. I'll try to have an answer once we are satisfied that the proto builds don't have problems (or at least only a few problems).
Dr. Cavalli gained notoriety with his first DIY amplifier projects. His success has blossomed into Cavalli Audio, a world leader in amplifier design.

Thanks Bill... Great that some got to see 'er at the meet. Nice to hear others liking its sound.

I'm finally really done w/mine. Here's pics w/vinyl-dyed ends (yes there was a bit of dust in the garage) + water slide decals:





Have some more tubes on the way to roll... Just have to make sure I get that 6V/12V heater switch right

That is a darn nice knob the cf. I need to find me a nice lil' knobber. If your done does that mean you got the new caps in there? or did they even come yet (I forget).

Welcome back - Very nice build! I'm now in the process of 'finishing' my amp up. I cobbled together some end panels from some hardwood scraps I had bought off Fleabay a while back... Blurry on purpose 'til I get it finished...
