post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So I'll start by saying I know absolutely nothing about audio equipment, but where I lack in knowledge I make up for in tenacity.

 

I have always owned record players and I think they are making such great strides back into the mainstream. I have noticed through the years of owning different record players that I prefer the quality of sound coming from my record player with a tube amp built in.

 

I work in an office and every day I dream about doing something I love and I've had some designs for record player bodies kicking around in my head for years. I want to integrate my woodworking ability with my love for music and record players but I lack knowledge when it comes to electronics and tube amp design.

 

I have read a few places that single-ended triode tube amps work very well but that's as far as I can get because the sheer number of options is too overwhelming and I'm starting from scratch. 

 

I was hoping someone one could give me some direction to some good DIY tube amp schematics that would be suitable for a small, medium end record player.

Check out Bottlehead amps, I think you would enjoy their S.E.X (which is a SET amp). They also have tube phono preamps as well.

 

They come with a PDF of instructions on a CD when you buy their kits. The instructions are filled with photos and are very clear, even if you're new to DIY (I had no problems understanding the Crack manual even though I've never soldered or worked with electronics beforehand).
