I can't stop looking at pix of your carefully hand-crafted amp either. wink.gif

I can't tell for sure form the photo.

 

Ultra is very lucky, this is a gorgeous looking amp.

 

70 it is. Thanks, I fully agree. Gorgeous!

How time flew. I got up and then looked at the time. It was nearly midnight. Thank goodness I had the volume really low. Like at Step 4.

 

It is now 5:30 AM and I am listening to classical violin music set at Step 5. My Normal listening is at Step 12 and that registers 75 dB 4 inches from the speaker. I should do more dB measurements from my comfortable couch. -- Okay, Step 5 is 53dB at a distance of 4 inches and 45 dB 5 feet away.

I'm listening to Glenn's mono blocks right now and the GZ37 are the best second only to the Tung-Sol 5U4GB.

 

I thought the TS 5U4GBs were not loved due to the voltage drop.  I am using a Mullard GZ37 in my Glenn amp too.  I really like it.

Are you good at that Clayton?

Yes the 300Bs are running at 70ma
Even though the JJs can be run at 80ma no problem
I Have told Clayton to run them at 80ma
They might last longer at 70ma

The voltage drop won't affect a 300b amp as much because the B+ voltage is much higher
425. Vrs 250 in the OTL.

I'm listening to speakers only so I don't know how a voltage drop would sound. The GZ37 definitely sounds more powerful, fuller, and a tad warmer but the TS 5U4GB carries its own as well and is second on my list. I'd like to try the RCA 5U4G tubes. I really liked them in my WA22 and WA6 amps--but then again, those are purely headphone amps.

how loud do you listen to your headphones ?

 

I just tested the apps Clayton advised me, and from my listening position it measures between 55 and 75db from my speakers. When I'm in the mood and home alone, that might be more though ;)

It's not headphones but it might give you an idea. How could I measure my headphones? Anyone?

SPL meter?

Listen to your headphones at the volume that you find comfortable. Remove your headphones from your head (no your foot) and hold the iPad's microphone right up to the headphone diaphragm. That should give you a ballpark reading.

I was sort of hoping you wouldn't ask that actually.  I honestly can't decide.

Manual biasing is alas simple as can be. Go for it.

Guys,

 

I need some wisdom from you all. My cousin is looking for a phono stage. He's not really in to audio at all and I know nothing about vinyl but he's looking for a phono stage to connect his TT to a 2.1 Samsung home setup. I have no idea where to look and I doubt he wants to spend a lot of money.

 

Is there a really cheap solution/unit that would do the trick?

 

thanks for the help and sorry for the off topic wink.gif

Impressive, to say the least but I do prefer the upper side biggrin.gif

Now that is beautifully made. I like that custom r-core transformer.

Great work, Glenn.
