    I know of at least one person who has remodeled his house to accommodate them.
    They are still built in Hope Arkansas last I read and their home office is in Indianapolis, I know some folks who were involved there since I work maybe 15 minutes from it.

    If you saw John Darko's just-posted video from the Warsaw Audio show, this has to be one of the most imposing pieces of kit, visually-speaking. Those tubes are about the size of large kittens!


    Here's Darko's report:

    But other interesting stuff he remarks upon throughout the show.

    Hello Jason, I hope this question has not been asked and answered on the thread one thousand times already: have you ever considered selling the tonearm of the Sol as a separate product? It looks like good value-for-money to me and would look great on my current turntable. I assume that others would like to try it too.

    Hideous. IMO.

    I dunno.... RCA 833 (and the Russian & European versions) DH triodes are pretty impressive to look at. 100 watts on the filament, big round pins - two on top, two on the bottom to hold it in place. A pair in class B modulator service could dish out 2.7KW of audio into the RF amplifier of an old school AM radio transmitter. Yeah, I could see building a SE triode amplifier around these. Though it's a level of insanity that I no longer aspire to....

    Yea it's a taste thing. I would not have that amp in my house no matter what it sounded like. :)

    Thanks for the link!

    But I wish you wouldn't have used kittens as a comparative item. @Paladin79 is now going to be spending his time buying one of those tomorrow, and he really needs to be working on a new rack design for me to copy. :slight_smile:

    Wow. That Mag Lev turntable is crazy!

    833's do seem slightly excessive for a headphone amp, though, unless you have a really, really big head. Still...

    In the USD $4-5k range (or less if you look). Its the Triode TRV-A300XR

    Agreed! That's why my last DIY tube headphone amp only used 6528s and 6BX7s.

    Sweet! I've been saving a matched pair of NOS Eimac 250TH for a similar project.

    Thanks! There's a couple on Ebay in the ~$2600 range with shipping. Unfortunately, this part is a deal killer (for me):


    Obviously the US market is not in their game plan, at least at this point. Still a really nice looking amp...

    Seems that maybe you can get it for other voltages OR it works with others already, but yes would want to be careful.


    (Hope it's OK to post this on the thread, mods delete it if required)

    Line voltage step down xfmrs are readily available, I have 2 of them.

    No fuss, no muss, plug-n-play, built in, not added on, with your mind in mind…
