That is quite a range actually. I did not gave much thought about using a series pass tube before.

Then you will find out hard it is to listen to music evaluating a new amp and eating home made cookies.  

 

You are very wrong Glenn.

I leave the amp side to you, no way I can do the QC anywhere near as good as you.

 

I was talking about the cookies...................tongue_smile.gif

Glenn busy eating his cookies and building the next amp. I wont get mine till July. LOL I have some other toys in the meantime to keep me busy and still waiting for the Stratus in June. I been having fun working in my review with the Woo WA7. Its all good but really looking forward to Glenn's amp to  drive the Taboo Mk111 as well as use with some high impedance cans.

What headphones do you plan to use?

 

What 2A3's will the Stratus be fitted with?

I plan to use the HD800,LCD 2.2.,At3000 ANV  with the Stratus and so far i have narrowed it down to the eML Mesh plates and will decide on what NOS I can find matched either the RCA,Ked Rad or Sylvania. I may also decide to change  as I also will be considering the Sophia mesh plates as well. I will only need the twos sets plus the stock and have plenty of rectifiers  for the amp. I like the Sylvania  5U4G I had in the demo unit that Donald sent me. Usually when I like tubes they stay in for a while before I swap them around. I Have settled on the tubes i am using in the taboo Mk 111 and when I first had the amp I I tried 5 or 6 combos but the one in there now have been there  and not swapped. I will do the same with the Stratus and Glenn OTL when I get them.  You can get crazy swapping tubes all the time.

I hope my stereo amp gets here before Glenn goes eat cookies,drink Metaxa/Ouzo/Rakia & talk tubes in Athens (jealous!). I really can't wait :)

What actually would you call my amp Glenn?

Has Glenn or anyone else named Glenn OTL. If Glenn can do that it would be nice or maybe if Glenn does not want to name his puppy maybe he will allow the community to do it with a vote.  Does it already have a name?

I was talking about the name for the ampswink_face.gif. We should have names for the models he has been building. Just a suggestion  I see it being referred to the Glenn OTL and that is cool  also.  Glenn are you building any other amps?  Can you do a 2A3 speaker amp?

No I do math and Engineering you guys determine what sounds good or not.

That is why I need a opinion on what a new amp sounds like I can't trust my ears.

Cookies just make it sound better.

I will be making your amp as soon as I get the volume pot from Japan. Actually I started on the chassis today.

What to call it? It is a 300B stereo intergrated? It should sound the same as Clayton's mono block's the circuit will be the same

The difference will be it will only have one power transformer powering both left and right amps.

 

Oh if I know my GF she will have made cookies to ship to Athens before we leave for there. This is why I have

gotem so dam fat now I think she is getting Stavros fat too.

"Glenn's 300B Stereo integrated" it is! Clayton seems to love his amps, so I have full confidence in what you will create.

Belgium and Holland are known for a special blend of cookies, but we might get arrested if I ship those biggrin.gif

At least that "blend" won't be responsible for anyone resisting arrest. rolleyes.gif
