Default Hello Everyone :)

Hi,
My name is John, and live in SE Wisconsin. I am currently running a Velleman K4040 PP amp with a Velleman K8021 Control Amp, both which I built from kits. I'm now officially a tube junkie! What I really want is a 300B amp, and I want to build it. Lucky for me I happened to stumble upon Tubelab Home and found a very nice board there for a 300B SE amp. I'm in the process of working on it but still have a long road ahead of me...I need to proceed slowly and carefully since I'm still pretty green as far as building amps. That's why I joined here!! There is SOOO MUCH info here, and I hope to get to know some of you here
All I can say is that I just LOVE the sound that tubes give me and want to kick it up a notch or two :P
Take care...and keep 1 hand behind your back ;P

Hello there John and welcome to diyAudio

I'm sure you'll find much of interest in the valve forums.

Received his medal in a dream !
Great last track from the 2nd album of the Pink Floyd .
I used to play Gigolo Aunt very loud , many years ago .
100 W with bridged TDA 2030 + Power Bjts !
Dunno if a 300B would keep the track

Hi Picowallspeaker
Thank you for dropping me a line or two! I've been a Floyd fan since high school! I've learned more about them just recently than I ever knew before just from watching the DVD, "The Making of Dark Side Of The Moon". I have DSOM on 180gm vinyl and the sound is just great!! Take care, friend...

See Saw ... i was just to mention it !
6000 Km is nothing to the power of mind !
I have ' A nice pair' and I re-discovered DISC-Over
it about 2 weeks ago .
Also , I had to add damping fill to my boxes
because the organ in 'A saucerful of secrets' caused some
stationary waves and resonances inside the box to make happen some frequency shift
which is not very pleasant to hear ( it's a 2 meters line tapered TL ).
I really fear the RT60 effect !
BTW RT it's Reintegration time
It's the time that the ear may be tricked when sounds are below some time threshold

Also , I played for the very first time their first album , which I have on CD , and
it's totally different !

You sound like a speaker builder!! I have a set of vintage early '70s Altec Lansing model 874a Segovia, which is the only model that Altec produced that were 4 ohms. Also, I have a vintage set of Marantz model 6G that were given to me... I have a thing for vintage speakers and electronics!
Good night...
