balanced stereo tube preamp for a recording studio
 
Hello folks
I would like to build a high quality stereo tube preamp with balanced ins and outs for my recording studio. Please note that I am a newbie in diy audio. Does anyone has any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

You could look at the mic pre version of Allen Wright's RTP available as a kit, or described in detail in his PreAmp Cookbook.

thanks, Planet 10. I will check that out.
Did you have a chance to browse at lenght trough the preamp-cookbook? Is there any other books that you could recommend? I am also interested in parametric EQs and compressors.:p :p

Read thru completely twice and keep going back & reading certain bits.

I'd made a note to reply to your original post and mention the vacuumstate RTP's, but Dave posted whilst I was off making dinner. I second the motion.

If you get a chance to read the TPCB, do. It's got a lot of valuable information in it, and it's damn funny in places to boot.

As for the RTP sonics, I'll let you know in a few weeks when mine's finished.

Tube Mic preamp
 
See also AudioXpress Feb/Mar 2002 for a design by Paul J. Stamler. It certainly seems thorough, and it's not cheap. Good discussions of the design decisions.

They also published a 2-channel tube compressor design in July, 2001.

RTP
 
I am also building RTP 5 rev 1 as well.

I wonder what is the value of R2.

Cool. It's about time other people started to build these too. I was beginning to feel lonely.:D

<b>I wonder what is the value of R2.</b>

I have 1200 ohms for it.

I ordered the last parts for mine today, so knowing how slow I am, I'd anticipate 4-6 weeks after they get here, and I'll have an RTP3C/5 and a pair of PP1Cs.
Let me know how you go.

Cheers
Brett

RTP
 
I have 1K for R2 at the moment. Will change to 1.2K to see how change. I will need to adjust the B+ and negative supply since it gain is really low at the moment.

What do you use for current source? Mosfet? I am using LM317 since I am lazy.
