Yet another excellent 6l6 build guide. Can’t wait for the store to get some kits for us to build. Thanks 6l6 and DIYAudio store!

Can the powers that be agree on the version number? 1.1 in the build thread - 1.5 in the kit.

It’s marked 1.1 on the schematic and the PCB, so I went with that. I was thinking about calling it Amp Camp Amp (2018) or something like that, however the boards are marked 2017...

Instead, maybe we should call it George. Or Simon. Or perhaps Annabelle.

Jim- Thanks for your dedication to provide these guides for everyone! I know how much time it takes to make nice images, organize them, and document things in a manner that is clear and makes sense. Great work!

Since you mentioned monoblock coversion a few posts back, how soon before you’ll have some photos and notes / cautions for the process? I know a couple of guys who’d be interested.

And since we’re at it, addition of B1 buffer and volume pot to formulate a sorta “integrated” amp?

I’m going to be making C3 a swappable part (so i can use it as a PPLXO HP), can someone point me to where i can get a PCB terminal similar to the one similar for the pitch of C3 on the board (3mm).

Sure! The monoblock operation of the ACA requires an XLR jack and 3 pieces of wire. Power should be more than double as it's balanced bridge operation, not parallel. The only catch is it must be fed from a balanced source.

It will be covered in detail in the near future.

Place a stereo 25k pot between the RCA jacks and the input. It really is that easy. That said, I'd rather use a dedicated preamp circuit or just use the volume on your computer as that's what a majority of people are using as source today.
