Just beautiful! The best looking build I've seen in a looooong time- thoroughly professional inside & out!

Nice fit on the side panels- a very clean appearance on the top panel - looks like excellent ventilation too.

I notice the bias controls on the top panel and wonder why you chose them to be so "end-user accessible" -is the bias monitored externally?

Only today I was thinking about using pots to set the bias individually instead of the usual "total bias current" and "DC Balance" arrangement. Nice choice!

Congratulations on a gorgeous design!

Whose transformers did you use? The power and output are exactly the same size, it appears- so I wonder if you fabricated the cans yourself and fit the transformers inside, or if you found a vendor that just happened to make them the same size?

Silk can make opt and power transformers (and chokes) that look the same.

Hey Airpower!

What a gorgeous amp!
That's what I'd like my 13E1 amp to look like once it is
past the prototype stage.

Inspirational!

Steve

I do the Power trans and Output trans by my Toroidal winding machine.
The power trans and output trans have the same size and their size are large enough for the cans.

Thanks for your compliment!
I also like 13E1 Amp so I want to find tubes for this. Would you like to show me where you bought them?
Regards!
