Novice SSE build
Hello all, I'm planning a sse build and would like to go over some of the parts with anyone that will listen. This will be my first se amp. Looking for budget friendly parts where possible.
for output transformers: EDCOR - GXSE15-8-5K 74$
for power transformer: EDCOR - XPWR033-120 59$
for choke: EDCOR - CXC100-5H-200mA 39$

6l6gc tubes cathode resistors- 750

how does this look?

Hi, I moved your thread to the tubes forum as I suspect that this wasn't specific to the commercial tubelab forum :)


the trooper 6th February 2013 02:09 AM

Sry guess I should have been alittle more specific, this build will be using a Tubelab Simple Se board.

ok sorry, moved back ;)

Looks fine to me.....I would suggest 500V rated caps, assuming your target B+ will end up somewhere between 450 and 500V.

They can be a little hard to find, but they are around.

Yeah, your B+ will definitely be on the hot side with that power transformer combined with the lower DCR of that choke. I would say that 500V caps are a must.

Just for c1 and c2 positions right?

rknize 6th February 2013 04:08 PM

At a minimum C1, C2, and any aux cap you may add.

Ok thanks for the tip, I'm gonna try and document the build here when I collect all the parts.

Looks like you'll also be set up for KT88 operation if you desire.....perhaps pick up a few different cathode R values.
