Default Nicola's 6EM7

just finished a little triode amp for my nephew..
I'm getting almost 3 Watt's out of the Telly tubes.
a bit of the insides.
I use a LED as bias on the first stage.
amaaaazing.
the amp is upside down in these pics.
the pcb,s are bolted to the top cover
I was going to call it GG7 (as you can see on the top of the pic)
But I lasered the front panels the wrong way around...

Nick's amp
green lines are air wires
blue is copper jumpers on my PCB's
and dottet violet are wires going to the switch (LS / HP)
the blue numbers on the left are part numbers for Distrelec, a big European parts shop.

Great work with the Tubelab Simple SE. I think you have the most beautiful one Can you give us feedback on the SSE ? How does it perform compared to other gear you heard ? Maybe you can post the details on the tubelab section

Again, she is beautiful

Well thanks for the kind words from everyone, much appreciated..I tried to build a project that looked vintage and modern at the same time so alot of thought went into the overall design....and having a wonderfull SSE circuit as a starting point you really cant go wrong...I also left plenty of chassis room for upgrades ie bigger output trannies, motor run caps etc...i haven't totaled up the cost but between 1k and 1.5k maybe and the strong aussie dollar helps

well back to listening
