Thanks Glenn. Just took my pre out from storage and forgot the darn thing have a gain dial. So my future dht amp might use the type 10 after all.
If this isn't a high quality preamp the SQ will only be as good as the preamp.
Is it tube or SS ?
I ask this because my amps are a # 10 driving a 300B with a preamp using a # 26 DHT
When I built Clayton's amps and Ultra's amp with the C3g driver it sounded as good everything was the same
same output transformers the only difference was the driver. If I was going to do it allover again I would use
the C3g and omit the preamp.
Its the Eastern Electric Avant. Got it 2 year ago before committing mostly to headphones. Hope that helps.
You can try to hook it up to the OTL put the tone controls on flat and see how much it changes the sound.
Turn down the volume on the OTL and use the volume on the preamp.
This should give you a idea how much it changes the sound.
Thanks but I think I will pass, I have the Sophia 300B mesh already and like to save up for the EML.
sell all and buy these + a pair of 422A, then your journey will be over.
My rig is slowly emerging. The monaural amps were designed around the storied Siemens F2a power tube. The glass has its roots in 1950s German Cinema, in the same way Western Electric 300Bs has its roots in 1930s cinema over here.
