Mark,

Are those standoffs from a tek scope?

Yes they are. Let us give a moment of silence in honor of that unknown TEK scope that allowed me to use its organs for a transplant.......BTW: Not scrapped out by me... jist so everyone here is clear on that issue . Thats something I just couldn't bear to do.....

And how about a 21 gun salute for the fine plug ins that lay down their life for my HP amp. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEBI%3AIT&rd=1


How can people commit such atrocities

I felt the same way about my tek scope until I tried doing any serious measurements and couldn't stop the drift. Then I thought about the calibration sticker on the front thats 40 years past due. Thats right it was due back in 1965. If you parted out a tek scope on ebay the price of the ceramic terminal strips alone could buy you a much newer model. Plus a 10Mhz scope is no good when an opamp oscillates at 40Mhz or so...

Hey,

I need a pre to my Zappulse class D poweramp. Could this one drive the 17kohm input, or maybee lower?

I too, woyld be glad to get a schematic of the Powersupply.

I`m absolutely a newbee, but would anyway try building a tube pre, and this one looked absolutely interesting.

Thanks to Mark for the great work :-)

Venlig hilsen Jan

"signal energy preservation"

no RC stage can compete with inductive loaded stage in that field.

one need to hear good choke or OPT stage to catch what I mean ,but-like always -it's matter of taste ,not universal truth.

same as - one way speaker against multi way speaker -to each his own

Bordin Sap on 12b4 - AV Review forum

"Now, I'm waiting for my tube pre-amp to finish from a hi-fi shop. Last month, by chance, I did A/B testing between my solid-state preamp with a DIY one, using 12B4 tubes. I was so stunning with the results. The 12B4 preamp produces the best sonics I've ever heard from a hi-fi system! Tons for details, musical separation, tonal balances, extreme high, authoritative bass, airy, and much more. Highs are a lot better than my solid-state preamp. I would say even better than my friend's Mark Levinson No. 383."
