You just had to tease me with a 807 amplifier. I have been gathering parts for one and now after seeing yours I will have to make one.

I'll bet it sounds sweet.

Yuppers, sounded very fine even before connecting the NFB, and it doesn't require very much of that. Even though 807s are officially an "xmtr" VT, they are outstanding performers for audio as well.

"I will have to make one." Hop to it!

My latest effort, crafted from specially selected alloys chosen after hundreds of hours of listening tests. The precision machining took over 1,000 hours and was done by specially trained craftsmen. No expense was spared in the selection and qualification of components. This is truly what high end audio is all about.

Ah, your LED-cathode-bias EL84 amp? Hmmm, I'm gonna do the same thing but hide the LED's inside

SY,

The faux rust work is EXCELLENT... as are your efforts to get that antique patina... very nice

Do explain the LEDS, a CCS with 32 stage cascode, fast bass, or what?

My congratulations SY

I think the bass might be better with blue LEDs

Aren't they supposed to be red and green for right and left channel?



EDIT: the boaters among us will understand

All joking aside, the LEDs actually were quite carefully chosen. Low dynamic impedance is tough to find these days.

And I should credit pinkmouse for cleaning up my photo.
