George you want a PP 300B amp ???

post #8612 of 10707
Still debating. Its easier to get a pair of KR 300b than 2 pairs. Just the tubes alone will cost almost as the amp. Also don't know if PP or parallel 300b.

I don't think we've seen the backside of of this beauty...


It is difficult with the way these output transformers are tapped. multiple windings that are series and paralleled to make the right output Impedance.

I do plan on making one for my buddy that would have relays to switch the transformer from 8ohms

to 40ohms when the phone is plugged in. and automatically switch from the headphone jack to terminals on the back.

Speaking of 300Bs the filament in one of my cheapo JJ300Bs burned out last night.

Now I will have two different ones in my amp.

Do you want to sell a pair ??

I was going to buy a pair of KRs. These cheep tubes only last me a year before one of them burn out.

post #8617 of 10707
I was thinking sending it to you to tried them on your amps. And when im ready for my 300b amp it will be nicely settled.
post #8618 of 10707

OK I will Waite on the KRs then

post #8619 of 10707
What I meant was you can use them for testing purposes. Mis tubos son sus tubos. And if they survive good if they don't they are just cheap tubes. I will let you know once they get here.
post #8620 of 10707

OK I am going to order the KR tubes and if yours get here first I will use them until the KRs get here.

I just like to post my experience to date with the Bendix graphite tube variations. I do not think that Bendix had high QA standards to simply reject tubes but put those tubes in general circulation as long they will work. I had a Bendix tube that worn out later due to the getter formation that was incomplete at the factory. I also have another Bendix tube that tested good in all conditions on my Sencore tube tester but will not auto adjust the bias correctly in the amp that I am using. Once one of the Bendix tube wear out in the amp I will switch out the remaing Bendix to something else I have in my collection. I am planning for the future where I will still have new tubes to explore.

P.S. I am going to explore something wonderful at PS Audio this weekend. :ksc75smile:

John Bendix were making these tubes for aeronautical applications so I would have thought they had high standards.

 

I had Bendix with sorts, but they could have been rejects you never know.

 

What's happening this weekend?

Listener Beware. I live in a small one-bedroom apartment with 75 amps. And I make a good drink too.

Clayton, my house in Bernal is small but the amp/sq.ft. density is much lower than your pad! 

I'm happy to host you and others to evaluate the New OTL.

I have a Viking range, sharp knives and a cocktail shaker so we should be ok!

Sounds great!

 

OMG. A Viking Range and New OTL. Heaven.

Olives or pickled cocktail onions, and a twist.

I'm ready to replace my old 1930s stove with a Viking Range. A small Viking Range. But not yet.
