Default One when stationary and one when traveling

For desk use (4-5 hours/day) EL84 SE that is usually operated single-stage (input from USB soundcard straight to trioded EL84 with 98db OB speakers 1 meter away) but can be switched to 2-stage if required.

For travel, all direct-heated headphone amp that plays for some 9 hours hours on one battery charge.

If not obvious from the pictures, both were made mostly of junk parts (but the labeling on the headamp 'housing' fits quite well ...)

Dovla,

Can you share the schematic of your headphone amp? Is it the one on picture with miniature tubes?

Hi Kevin,

I've heard this formula D3a-GM70 SE in my friend's system. Sound is a bit harsh, not much warm, rich tone... like traditional SET amp.

Is it enough gain for GM70 (over 200Vp-p) ?

Mine is very pleasant to listen to without being particularly euphonic.. Actually in class A1 at 1kV about 160Vpp is all that is required.

Significantly less than 1Vrms is required to drive it to full output.

IT is 1:1

Opt is 7K:8

D3A runs at 20mA, GM70 at 120mA..

Currently using graphite plate GM70s.

My system has the same formula with you: DHT pre amp --> power amp including penthode tube in triode mode- IT- power tube.

Hi, I have a pair of new GM70 but do not have any plan to use. Do you want to take it for free?
