EF86 tube preamp
1 Attachment(s)
I would like to use these tube preamplifier to drive my Krell KSA-50 Clone .
Only problem the preamp has to much gain .
The recommended output load 200K or more !
It is possible to somehow lower the gain so I can use it .
Any advise welcome .
I love the EF86 tube sound . These is a simple , very nice tube preamp .

DC couple a ZVN0545A source follower to the EF86's plate. Cap. couple the source follower to a step down trafo. Sowter's model 9042 might be suitable.

Leave out the cathode bypass electrolitic cap and you will have much less gain, but still to high output impedance.....:D
