Wrong it's Apollo and the Muses pushing the electrons and adjusting the bias current.

 

And for that price maybe a few more Gods and Goddesses.......

Here are some pictures of my latest creation for Tyrell

I laughed out loud.  

 

Looks great, though!  45 tube HAS to be great sounding with headphones.

post #4883 of 10796

The SS stuff is just for voltage regulators for the filaments of the 45s

If I had more room I would have done it with chokes and resistors.

A active voltage regulator is the only way to get rid of the ripple with

out using large parts. Still needed a heat sink to get rid of the heat

from the regulators barley had room for that.

and I thought you were going to point out the Class D modules under the 45's...:evil:

post #4885 of 10796

Class D now there is some good sounding stuff for somebody.

 

I was going to make some 100 watt per Chanel MOS fets driven by

tubes.  Running class A creating allot of heat.

But getting custom made heat sinks is a problem. Still thinking

of a smaller version for headphones sure would drive Otho's easily

though.

Wyred 4 Sound is making some really well regarded Class D amps....The last 10 years have seen some great advances in that technology. B&O seem to be driving a lot of the R&D there.

post #4887 of 10796

My latest JBL monitors that I just received uses class D amps internal. Much lighter and less heat generated than class AB.

I don't really see the point of it to save electricity how much power is waisted with

people listening to music. I guess big amplifiers can run cooler but on small scale

what is the point.Just to prove it can be done and sound good too.

Glenn, very nice indeed. Your designs keep getter better and better and bigger--like my belly. ;)

Great way to close out Summer 2013... nice effort! I'm looking at the bubble wrap and suddenly thinking about the year-end holidays. In the second pix, what cans do you have jacked-in? Do you still have the LCD2s on hand for this amp?
