Default What is everyone building?

I'm just curious.

or perhaps a better question for George, what boards are you selling the most of?

SE, SSE or PP?

Since day one the SSE outsells the other two combined. Sales of all boards has been very bad for most of this year, as low as one per month. Boards sales are usually slow during the NA summer, and pick up during the winter.

The TSE costs more to complete since DHT's aren't cheap and builders tend toward higher end transformers. They tend to sell in spurts, depending on the local economy and exchange rate.

My last build was an 80 watt PP using ECC83 ECC82 and four EL34 output valves.

SSE in very early stages right now.

P.S. It is 5 a.m. here and I am realizing that George and Nigel need to get together for a guitar jam session.

Thanks George.

I have built two SSEs, and have two boards sitting around. Maybe this winter!

One of us would need a very long guitar cord!

Too many acronyms in this thread

I really want to sink my teeth into a DAC build, but too many options and not enough time to read all the threads....

C'mon George, I think that you are mistaken with that... just turn up the volume to 11 on your 833 SE amp ( 833 SE | Tubelab ) and point in the general direction of England. Just make sure you are standing behind the speakers and not in front.

The neighbours might disapprove of it, but all in the name of science (and a good session).
