I added a pre-out for my subwoofer, a 70hz highpass switch and adjustable 6db BSC. (credits to Matthijs of triplemaudioshop.nl)
Itís hum free after doubling C1.
Power is absolutely enough for a great sound on my Fostex FE126eN sphere speakers.
That's a great project; maybe just the inspiration I need to get started on my TSE.

Hey guys, just got this Tubelab SE 300B up an running. I am a very inexperienced DIYer with no electrical background. I struggled fitting everything into this small chassis. My power filter cap is 1mm from touching the chassis on the inside and the board itself is bolted onto the chassis with a mylar sheet (drum skin) between it and the aluminium to make it fit. There is only room for a 20uf supplemental motor run cap which I will add when it arrives. The 5842s are on two socket savers, rectifier is on one socket saver. 300Bs are just in their standard sockets on the board. A standard computer shop heatsink keeps it cool in the confined space. Sorry no decent photos of the inside. But I am very happy with the experience and the final product. Sounds amazing. Needs a wipe down too Hope you like.

Thommo007,

The amp is looking smart. I see you've used Psavane 300Bs - good choice!

p.s. Isn't "Thommo" Jeff Thomson's monicker?

Haha, na man. Not that big of a cricket fan I'm afraid PSVane are brilliant, and can't complain about the price either. 5842s were almost more expensive to source lol.

I finished my Tubelab SE it's playing music and sounds great. I have a pair of DIY speakers based on Tony Gee's "Mezzo Galactica" with a sensitivity of about 90dB. It'll play loud. Louder than I listen.
I haven't had a decent amp in a year and TSE definitely measures up to these speakers. The detail and realism I love.

I built the chassis with 1/2" walnut veneer plywood I had and 3/16 aluminum I bought at the scrap yard. The legs were left from an Ikea project. I slotted the aluminum tubing using a router and a jig I made. I got the tubing at the scrap yard too.

Thank you George, for a fantastic amp.

Thanks Cassiel-

I borrowed ideas from a few amps I liked the looks of. Kind of an "Art Deco" look.

Stonehome,

Beautiful and pretty unique look you got there!

Hope your transformers are not getting too hot because of the plywood covers?

Thanks Boywonder and zman.

The large transformer cover has vents cut at the back along the bottom feeding the aluminum vent at the top. I may add a vent to the small one but it doesn't get hot only warm.

The extra plates @ the tubes are raised and cover larger holes around the tubes to allow for more air to move, that was the idea anyway.
The aluminum top plate lifts off for access to the top of the circuit board.
