Default 2a3 parafeed

Have anybody done a parafeed 2a3?

Can you please share your experience?

Am planning to do a parafeed 2a3 using 5670 or 6n1p as driver, any thoughts?

Thanks.

The Bottlehead Paramour is a 2a3 parallel feed.

Having owned a pair since 2001 (upgraded in 2004), IMO it is the best ampifier I have never heard.

Truly a 3-D soundstage, acoustic guitars sound like what they are (Martin's are Martin's, Guild's are Guild's, Gibson's are Gibson's).

Mahogony, maple and rosewood retain their signatures.

With a good recording, they help present a holographic image.

Thanks for the information.

I live in the Philippines and shipping of a tube amp with the irons will be quite expensive.

I am looking into doing a DIY 2a3 parafeed. I saw a schematic at magnequest for a parafeed 2a3, but am looking for other options.

Thanks.
