About a year ago I pulled this little guy from my grandparents old sound system:
I constructed the cage and installed the power switch and light in the front. Now, a year has passed and I now have some free time to work on it. Presently It does work, however, it has the typical hiss associated with components this age, also the tone controls and gain either no longer function or function so poorly they are unusable.
This brings me to the main subject of this topic. I would like to strip out all the basic components from this amplifier leaving really only the transformers, and rebuild it as a tube headphone amplifier. I was looking at the possibility of basing a design already implemented on an amazing amplifier like Woo Audio Wa6, but don't know if there is a better design out there that might not leave me with the task of drawing out a schematic for the Wa6 based off only two pictures I found online of the underside of the unit. I am still somewhat new to the world of audiophile based amplifiers, which is why I bring my question to you guys. If presented with this situation, what would you do? Thanks for any help in advanced, I would like to take this back to college this fall and use it in my listening setup.
