Default 5998 power amp question

Hello !!

Will the scheme posted below work properly with output transformer of 3K instead of 2,5K. According to my lame knowledge it should, but maybe sb can explain me what will be the efect of such substitution - as far as I know better control but less gain on output....

Best Regards,

Slightly lower output power but probably lower distortion too.

Go for it! This is a nice sounding little amp and easy to build. It's really an ideal amp for beginners.

I suppose that You have already built it? Did you have an opportunity to compare this amp to other triode SE amps???

I didn't build it, but someone I know has and I liked the sound of it (through Altec A7 setup, very efficient). I was impressed enough to start one for myself although I really don't have a suitable speaker system yet (also in the works). To be honest, I have never heard different SE amps compared within the same system so I won't judge apples against oranges.
