Default SE 6l6

Hello All:

This is my first post here and im also new building amplifiers.

I`ve build a pair of a SE 6l6. Both similar, but one is with a 12at7 as preamp in SRPP mode and the other uses a 12by7. Only 2 tubes for each chanel in both amplifiers.

For building them, Ive just copy schematics here and there, read the tube data and work hard to achieve the volts and ampers to work in class A mode.

Im happy with the results, but -obviously- I want to make some improvements.

I dont have good speakers and I will not. I would like to build some single driver speakers using fostex o lowther but I just cant.

I like a lot the sound, but as you can imagine, I have low output. Also, old CDs sound much lower than new ones.

Im using the one with the 12by7 and I want to use it for some time.

The question is, what happen if I build a preamp in a separate box? I will achieve some more output? I will get more distortion?

Well, thankyou very much in advance for your atention.

Horacio Suarez
