Default Gratuitous shots of my new SSE

Born just last night (with the help of Russ and others here)....
Mounted all the iron under the deck; just the glowing bottles on display.
Currently KT88 Triode with no NFB connected. Sounds smooth and totally hum free. Plenty of volume when fed by CD or MP3 player.


Regards,

I have been trying to figure out the best way to install inrush current limiters in my SSE. The terminal strip looks like a great way to do it. I might have to steal that ideal for my amp.

Thanks for the kind words!
It's not that I don't like to see the iron on top of a chassis, it's just that my plain Hammond xfmrs are so butt ugly.
Now if I could have afforded some Tangos...

nic6paul:
Yeah, you can just make out the CL-90's on a 4 position barrier strip at the left rear of the box. I was very surprised at how gradually the amp comes up to operating voltage with the CL's and the 5AR4. Should make life easier for caps and tubes.

The chassis is a rack-mount case (19"x12"x5") with vented top plate.
It is made by Circuit-Test, the house brand of a local electronics company here in B.C. It's a well made piece of powdercoated steel with anodized aluminum faceplate.
