Why? gm is likely 8mA/V, so source impedance of a cathode follower will be ~125R plus perhaps another 100R for a cathode stopper.

Why not? percent of it is double triode.
Here's how I conceived the schematic. I'd say that the values ​​that are components of the input = 1Mohm and output <1Kohm ( for frequency 30Hz ...20kHz to + / -0,5dB), with a gain of about 0,95 dB!
thanks

 17th June 2012, 05:51 PM #6 artosalo   diyAudio Member     Join Date: Feb 2010 Your circuit is fully OK if gain just below 1 is sufficient. The following component values will give good operation: R1 = 1 M, R2 = 1k, R3 = 470, R4 = 10 k, R5 = 1k, C3 = 100 uF, C4 = 10 uF, R5 = 100 k, C1 = 22nF. But what will be your load impedance and required output voltage ? Last edited by artosalo; 17th June 2012 at 06:03 PM.

artosalo thank you for your prompt response. After this comes the buffer Po=60W/8R audio amplifier with an input voltage Uin(max) = 1V; Rin = 47k.
If someone has something else to add some of this buffer is welcome, ...
thanks and cheers!
P.S.
Sam should now look like this:
Now please offer some quality power supply for the buffer ..

 18th June 2012, 12:53 AM #8 rongon   diyAudio Member     Join Date: Jul 2009 Location: Across the river from Rip's big old tree... Do you only have +90V available for the B+ supply? That's not much for this type of tube (or any tube, for that matter). I'd aim for +90V between the PCC88's plate and cathode. The 10k cathode load resistor would drop 90V across it if you have 9mA current through the tube, which is not excessive at all for a 6DJ8/ECC88 class of tube. Gm goes up with increased current through the tube, which is good for a cathode follower (reduces output Z). PCC88 has max plate dissipation of 1.8W. Ua of 90V * Ia of .009A = 0.81W, so you would still be well within that limit. You might want to consider using something like a +180V supply. -=-

OK, if I go with the power supply B+(+Ua)=+180V, which should have value resistors in the schematic (P1, R1, R2, R3, R4, R5, R6)? thank you!
