Default Simple Tube Mono Block Tube Amp Schematic

Id like to know if any one can suggest some simple tube schematics for me, im looking to build something small & into 2 mono block's for my Ribbon tweeters, its just a project im going to take on for this winter, gather the parts and build, then tweek more and more after that. SINCE i'm new to tubes it will be a pretty good learning curve, im sure planet10 will help me at times but also let me learn some on my own.

I'm looking for something in the 5-10 watt range, i will be using my mini alephs to compare the sound plus use in the mix, id like to see what my css ribbon tweeters would sound like running on a nice tube amp.

I would require a low input gain, as i run passive pre-amp, also a design that has lots of room for improvements.

Thanks.

Not a monoblock design but one design I'd like to try as I have a set of SV83's. Very linear tubes and you don't need much power for tweeters.

6moons audio reviews: Decware Zen Taboo

Looks interesting but also pretty simple. Guess it could be modified to use as monoblocks.

I really liked the Zen Select that I had

Decware offers kits that include monoblocks: ZKIT2 / Zen Triode SET multi channel tube amplifier kit

We started with an "as close as possible" to a Zen when we started our SE EL84 journey... 7 iterations later we ended up with a muvh better amp loosely looking like an RH84. Would work very well for tweetrs given iron optimized for HF. (of which i have a couple sets). I think for the AC tweeters Jase has i'd try triode first and live with the 2W.

Hmmm, triode and 2-watts, smells like another application for a 45 DHT.

The Decware Zen. Did you blank out the name & copyright info?

A decent starting point.
