Default CV2799 (Mullard) QQV04-20 parallel single-ended audio amplifier

The audio amplifier made ​​in April this year, was originally used "beijing" FU-32 done in parallel single-ended, and later a British seller in EBAY where to sell me four CV2799, ordered to transform it into the form of the following figure.




Do not be confused by beautiful photos, I'm not doing commercials, photographs of tube amps is unique in the world, are TURING own diy out. Beautiful photos, the reason is Turing is also an avid photographer.



Here I have repeatedly been misinterpreted as doing commercials. Very aggrieved.

This tube amp has amazing tone. I think beyond my DIY ever 2A3 single-ended amplifier. FU32 \ QQV04-20 has amazing overload. And good curve.

TURING, is the OPT you used, with 3.5K primary really optimum, or have you tried any other transformer?

Not too sure about optimum load for these nice little guys, but I have tried them in push pull and PSE. They are NOT well matched within the envelope and one of them will run way hotter than the other.

Perhaps thats what you perceive as good tone Turing? Individual fixed bias is the way to go.

Cheers
Matt.

If class B push-pull output, a fixed bias is very important. Class A, AB class, totally unnecessary. Take a look at CV2799 parameter maps, the curve is very good, almost no pentode with the match. Sense of hearing is very good, simple circuit, we recommend that you try.
