If the tube does not act on an input signal, the solid-state power amplifier remains oblivious to the signal. If the tube mixes heater hum into its output, the solid-state amplifier will faithfully reproduce the hum at the loudspeakers terminals. Thus, the tube section is no expensive LED replacement; and the solid-state portion delivers 50W into 8-ohm loads. To add to the this list of desirable features we must include a few laudatory adjectives to describe how stunningly attractive his amplifier is, as we can see from the cover picture above. Okay, now brace yourself before examining the schematic below; it is not nearly as complicated as it seems at first glance.

Zoloramar Each file has two main pages: In addition, wide output voltage swing and high output drive capability allow use in a wide variety of demanding applications. No doubt that you have been told that in multi-gauge loudspeaker cable, the high frequencies travel through the thin wires and the lows travel through the fat wires, exclusively.

Well, now that I am stirred up, I might as well go into full rant mode. Sadly, the audioXpress community lost one of its most esteemed and prolific writers. July 4, by Nelson Pass. Read this reference article, originally published in audioXpress, September We looked at the most-read articles of in audioXpress. December 27, by audioXpress Staff. Thus, it seems that Mr.

Stamler A Power Supply Spreadsheet This article describes a spreadsheet program for designing low-voltage power supplies using audioxpreas IC three-terminal regulators.

Nonetheless, I fear to imagine just how bleak and empty the DIY audio world would be today without the nearly four decades of steady contribution from Audio Amateur Press. In contrast, tube circuitry is fundamentally different. Remember, when specifying class-A operation, one must also specify the load impedance and the peak voltage swings. I know this because the few times that I have mentioned a power OpAmp in these pagesI have received audiooxpress ton of e-mail from gainclone fanciers.

Just more satisfaction in the bag, there. The electron does not know that it is supposed to travel only into the loudspeaker, not the solid-state output stage; it flows where it can most easily, blind to our grand designs and intentions.

We also discuss Audloxpress Testing issues among other things. In other words, the pentode is run as a pentode, not a triode-connected pentode.

December 21, by audjoxpress Staff. Audixpress this article, Joel Hatch explains how to build a variable frequency synchronous motor controller to control turntable speed. Want to know which of the topics and stories published online were the most popular? The Mighty Mouse is indeed a good sounding and inexpensive project that is also a good introduction to tube amplification. I bought an Aikido stereo linestage kit from you some days ago, and I received it just this Monday.

By the way, does anyone know of a power OpAmp that is unity-gain stable or low-gain stable? Ron Tipton was deeply impressed with this amplifier project which used only five transistors per channel, two of them being aaudioxpress sources. All items in category Project Articles. This article by Ron Tipton details the design and construction of the TDL Model high-performance microphone preamp, using a differential input stage that used compound transistor pairs with circuit ahdioxpress values, computer optimized for very low output noise.

Circlotron Lie Detector With the likely election of a new Clinton presidency, what the world needs is a good tube-based lie detector. TOP Related Posts.

I measured the response and it was not especially flat. Four Hybrid Solid-State Power Amplifiers This article by Ron Tipton details the design and construction of the TDL Model high-performance microphone preamp, using a differential input stage that used compound transistor pairs with circuit resistance values, computer optimized for very low output noise. Not a Thunderbolt 3 solution, as common-sense would dictate for a product launched at the end ofbut a Thunderbolt 2 product which will require an adaptor. The consumer king paid too much, as he gave up more than just money: Read the complete article here.

When it came to selecting topologies for the balanced inputs and outputs, I ruled out transformers due to high cost, physical bulk, and weight.
