I guess I'll post this to my Blog!

Inspired by This Thread I decided to build something similar,I've though about it before,and had some parts sitting here,so what the heck!

Amp Schematic

PSU schematic


Here's what I've got at the moment.
25BQ6GTB tubes,(re-)branded DuMont. These are the skinny 6V6-sized bottles.(11W anode rating,and ~200V screen rating)

A pair of those are driving a 3.5K PP output transformer,rated for ~100W. (came from a scrapped Bogen M120 4x PPP 8417 amp.)

Bogen Schematic

B+=457V
Va=455V
B2+/Vg2=224V
Vg1=-43V
Vk (33ohm Rk's) ~1.3V ,About 40ma/tube.
(I saw cathode current peaks of ~80ma per tube,perhaps more? hard to tell with my DMM)

That gives a dissipation of ~18W per tube. Much more current and the plates start to 'blush'.
I did *not* see any screen glow,but the mica's on these particular tubes make it kind of hard to see much inside....

Yikes! Now what did I do?

Posted 1st June 2011 at 04:45 PM by Pano

This morning I was waking up the music server to have a listen. I run a Windoze XP box with JRiver Media Center.

JRiver gave me a pop-up error message that there had been an incomplete shutdown, did I want to fix any problems? There had been a power outage for a couple of hours last night that shut down the server. So if course I clicked "OK".

Bam! Screen goes dark. WTF? I look at the crossover and the tube amps - all dark. All dead. Now what I have done?

Well, it wasn't my mouse click that killed everything, the power was out again. Phew. But talk about scary timing. Click OK and everything dies right on the click.

Fortunately for us we have a 12KW generator that kicks in and can run the whole house.

All back to normal now.

I have only one question. Which smart-alec called a brake company "Hope"?!
Surely, DefiStop would be better?

First ride around was good, the fork needs a little fettling on the rebound/travel front (remote lockout is good though), plan to head up to the local woods and set it up there.

Cheers,
Chris

Transformer for Pedja Rogic´s DDNF I/V Stage

Posted 23rd May 2011 at 10:44 AM by dvb projekt
Updated 14th June 2013 at 09:47 AM by dvb projekt

If you would build the DDNF I/V stage with my PSU & Salas Shunt modules,
you could order a custom made transformer at
AE-Europe.

It has the following data:

Primary:

115-0 / 115-0
(for 115V & 230V usage)

Secondary:

24V-0-24V / 2A
24V-0 / 2A
Magnetic Shield

You could order two versions:

- Standard: EI-core € 64,-

- High End: C-core (same size as 30317) € 112,-

Prices are excl. shipping and VAT
Delivery time around 6 weeks after order.

Intel, thanks for all the fish!

Intel's just held their 2011 investor conference. I'm not an Intel investor but after that performance if I were, I'd have sold out by now.

Welcome to the wonderful world of ARM guys!

If you want to get down and dirty, here are a couple of articles to get you started. Be sure to check out the comments!

If you'd like an illustration remarkably parallel to Intel's style of groupthink, go here:
