Millet MiniMAX Hybrid - Custom Build
Will Ship To: Continental United States
I'm downsizing a bit and am selling my Millet MiniMAX hybrid tube amplifier. This amp was built for me last year by rhester with input from Millet authority, DIYer extraordinaire, and all-around super guy tomb. It's loaded with boutique and unique parts in all the right places to make it special. Here's what tomb and rhester came up with:
Generally speaking, the parts list follows the Mouser column. Now, the differences with yours are as follows:
* CA4-L/R and CA5-L/R ... Panasonic FM 1800uf 35V
* CR1A, CR1B ... Panasonic FM 10000uf 50V (The Panasonics are pretty much the best power caps around - better than the Nichicon UPW's at Mouser.)
* CA7 - L/R ... Black Gate NX 680uf 35V (These are your output couplers, bypassed by Vitamin Q's at CA8-L/R.)
* Finally, the output transistors are Toshiba 2SC3422/2SA1359, items Q8,Q9 "b" on the BOM. These output transistors are my favorites and are known for rocking slam and detail.
This build uses the standard BOM found here: http://beezar.com/oscommerce2/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=125&osCsid=6fe2c3d9780b0d840953622432a32250 with the above modifications and the Black Gates output couplers option. It is better in every way than the Whiplash Audio MiniMAX that sells for $429. The amplifier sounds AWESOME and pairs particularly well with Grados. Pics are attached. It will ship with 2 pair of tubes, 12FK6 and 12FM6. The 12FK6 are currently installed and the amp is biased for them. Also included are the RoHS compliant 24v walwart power supply and a multimeter so you can re-bias the amp anytime you'd like.
Price includes ground shipping to the CONUS. Please PM me here with your interest and/or questions.
