Just a small question did you put some grid stoppers on tubes, since I do not see them in schematics, and D3a are known to oscilate easy?

In these last 2 years I have design many circuit with the D3a and I never seen problem of oscillation without grid stop resistor.

Other tubes give me these problems like the 5842 and 6C45.

I consider this tube perfect for these points:

1) only one brand so always the same neutral good sound
2) low distortion for large swing (see measurement on my PF2007 amp.)
3) no oscillation
4) no microphonic
5) high gain about 70
6) low internal resistance in triode connection near 2Kohm
7) low cost about 10-12$
8) easy to find on german Ebay shop

OK I would prefer it be there but if you have experience otherwise I am ok with it. I know the tube, have some of them on my small stock.

I know you simulated it and measured it but could not never understand how you found 16pF at the input of the second stage is so low. From the datasheet I see we have like 2pF and with miller and gain of 70 it should be more like 140pF. Would you please explain where I am wrong?

Pred

PS
Price at German ebayers is much higer now. They found people in HIFI like them so it is now more like 25-35...

PPS
I still wanna PCBs

This project use D3a easy to find on Ebay germany shop at 10-12$ each.

The sound depend by the passive components used.
I'm interested. Please reserve a set for me too.

Hi,
I am also interested if it is suitable, how much gain will it have compared to my CA 640p? The 640 specification is Gain @ 1kHz = 55dB,Nominal output 300mV,Sensitivity for 0.5mV nominal output.
The this is enough for my 0.5mV at33prg cart.
Thanks
Ian

Ian,
This phono preampl. is good for any type of MM and for MC high output cartridge.

In a measurement I have on output 1.24Vrms with 3mV input and this mean 52.3dB.

Is you have low output MC cartridge it is necessary an input step/up transformer.
