6V6 line preamp
 
Did anybody build or listen to a 6V6 triode connected line preamp? I think it may be interesting to build one since I have some NOS. Maybe SRPP.

Later full schematic
Cathode follower version
A recommended parallel regulator
A recommended series regulator

Hi,

I have a client that uses 6V6 in line amps. He loves them.

Sorry, I don't know make or have a schematic. Just passing the info along.

Cheers!

BudP have one in his preamp.....as CF , dunno is it triode ;)

Feasible then...

- The info that 6V6 is already used in line circuits with good results is positive. Thanks!

- Here is a basic circuit I came to graphically. Does anybody have a 6V6 model in some sim soft package? I sadly don't have it in my sims.

- If yes, lets see if the operating point and B+ are nice or there is better.

these simple tube circuit deserves that you learn graph-ruler-calculator routine.

you don't need sim for that ; or you'll never learn how tube works

I did already. But it would be nice to double check.

Cheers.

ok-then you did already what sims can do just worse ;

double check with dvm and cro and whatever you have

Here is SRPP since I have 4 tubes available. Nice for an audio comparison between previous and this one.

Try these models. They work on LTSpice.

Thanks! I will see if they work in Circuit Maker.
