Homemade Stereo Tube Amplifier, Dual Mono, 80WPC, All CCS

Homemade Stereo Tube Amplifier, Dual Mono, 80WPC, All CCS picture

I have listed this before but I am trying one more time. I will ship, but you would have to arrange it. The amp weighs over 100lbs. The output transformers alone weight 20lbs each and cost $800 just 2 years ago...I would also be open to trades for a plasma table, or CNC router setup. For these trades, if you lived within a few hundred miles, we could meet half way. This is the culmination of over a half year of steady work. Dual Mono Block, Push Pull Parallel, 6550EH stereo amplifier. Right around 80 Watts per channel before clipping, set up to reach that with just under 2v input. Can be run without a preamp, from any line source, though you would need volume control. There wasn't much I spared making this thing to say the least. Input is a constant current sunk 5687 long tailed pair. Then into a forced differential 5687 for the driver, also CCS. And for the finale, all 8 of the output tubes, the 6550EH, are also CCS sunk. All of the CCS are cascoded pairs of IXTP08n50D2, and IXTP08n100D2. Controls up top of the chassis to set the operating points of your input, your driver, and your outputs to wherever you like. Right now I'm running them at 8ma, 15ma, and 62ma, respectively. The meters on the front are switchable to show one side of output transformer, the other side, the driver, or the input. And of course, there's one meter for each channel. The two power switches are one for heaters, and one for HT so no cold turn on. The meters on the bottom show the total current for that channel, I've been running it at 300ma+ per channel, for 12 hour days, and she's just chugging away. I think the CCS on the output tubes, forcing balance in the push pull arrangement is pretty cool....but what about DC balance with such a big amp? Well there's also pots sunk into the chassis for that. See the speaker terminals up top? Hook your multimeter up to them, dial in the pot, and have an amp that is within 1/10 of 1ma DC balance! So what are those huge transformers we're balancing? Those are custom order Electra-Print. 3.3K P-P, 100W, -1db (that's right not -3db) from 21Hz-49Khz!. Good for 250ma per side, so they're also loafing along with the 150ma per side they might see with the 6550's....but, again this is where the CCS is so neat. You want to try a completely different operating point, bias them way hot or cool, simple turn the dial, and watch your cathode voltage on the meter, and you're there. Reset the DC balance and your amp is as tight as it gets as far as biasing and matched tubes goes. Oh, and I had jack wire it with 4 and 8 ohm taps. The power supplies are completely separate for both channels. The filtering is C-L-C-R-C, and the values are 66µf-10H-120µf-100?-220µf. Then, there's an extra 400? and 60µf for the drivers, and a further 660? and 60µf for the input. Stable voltage, overkill I know. But I wanted very tight voltage and NO electrolytic caps. That's right, not a single electrolytic in the whole thing. No replacing capacitors down the road. Also, as you can see in the pics, all grounds return to center taps via 12ga. ground bus. The box is 3/4" Maple. The trim is Redwood/Maple. The lid is 1/8" aluminum (aircraft). All the wiring is teflon/silver wire. The heater supplies are separate for every pair of output tubes, and for both channels in the front end so no crosstalk coupling. Coupling caps are 1000V Gudeman hermetically sealed .22uf. And real NOS, not pulls from some other piece. Heatsinks for the PP CCS are on nylon standoffs, with the Mosfet touching the heatsink and also the chassis, so effectively the Mosfet see's a HUGE heatsink, as they are right underneath the OPTs. The driver and input CCS both have overrated heatsinks as well. Something like this is an investment for sure. I have over 2000$ just in parts, and would be happy to break it all down for you. It's a special thing to be able to drive 86db/1W/1M speakers louder than I can handle, with a tube amp. This thing opens up some doors for speaker lovers who have had to traditionally use SS. I've included a bunch of pics, but there's so much more to say and show. If you're interested let me know. I'm happy to talk on the phone, always open to trades, and welcome any questions. Thanks for looking.
