Okay guys...how about reducing the OPt impedance to 5k by making the 16ohm secondary for 8 ohm speaker...does it make sense?...i just dont know if the opt can handle the primary current needed and how it will affect the bandwith?.
just build your amp and find out, your idle bias determines your drive requirements....i wouldn't worry too much about your output stage, you are not stressing your GU50 that much....

besides we do not yet know how much your psu will sag once you have biased your output tubes to about 60 mA, is that per tube or per tube pair?
if per tube, that is a whopping 240ma of idle current draw, the question then becomes, how capable is your power traffo in supplying this amount of power, remember that that was used on a peanut tube...

@jazbo...still I can't open your attachment...maybe convert it to pdf or jpeg file.

yes i'm trying to compute again base on 5k load... my power trafo has 2 x 350vac and i will use FW silicon diode rectifier for B+ of around 450vdc. i will not use the 5U4g which only give around 320Vdc.

I will try to approximate the power rating of the amp to suit the opt around 15w-20w .Currently the opt is running at 44ma idle for each plate for the 6BQ5's.What will be the best bias current for this to start...any suggestion?

I had attached the power trafo and Opt pix..

Sir,that will be per pair i hope, as based by the computation of turner audio.

It is not an attachment, it is a link on a file storage facility that don't give it to some subnets because probably there were infected computers in that subnets. He can save it on a local drive then attach.

Oh...i thought just an image....that's why some attachment seems invisible and cannot be accessed.

Sir anatoliy, will the 10k be a good load for pentode connected GU-50? what should be a good B+ and bias current to begin?

I agree, not sure if the PT is upto the task, and 20W is really too small for GU50 PP, they are not even breaking a sweat... Surely, it would be easier to just to get some replacement tubes and be done with it, and do another project that's worthy of the GU50.

BTW, the file is already jpeg, not sure how to up load a local file directly to the forum... try this link >> https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1326040/GU-50%20PPT_400.jpg

too sad,.. i have plenty of gu50 to use, but seems not fitted for my available opt.. i have other projects of gu-50, a 50w amp in pentode mode....that's why i'm trying it triode mode this time using the same tubes if possible too. I'll try to make it 5k load and see..

anybody has other pp triode schematics for reference?
