Default Will this circuit work?

Not sure but if it does it should have the benefits of Parafeed and Ultra path circuits. It certainly lowers the impedance that the AC signal sees.

Hi,

Couple of oddities I see...

1) Souldn't C1 return to ground?
2) How can U1's plate have 150V and U2's grid have -24V when they're DC coupled?
3) R3 is shorted out.

I can't see why it should work.

Geek,

shout at me if I am wrong, but I would imagine that the Cathode of U2 is at 174 volts, so the grid is at a relative voltage of -24.

It looks as if it's been done in a hurry, without checking. It has errors and can't function as drawn.

Would you please clarify?

I don't think it has to though I may be wrong. That was my reason for posting it. I'm not sure.

The plate loading choke for U1 is dropping 10v and R2 is dropping 14v.

Thanks. I missed that. I did indeed draw the diagram up in a hurry. I have corrected the diagram.

Should work like a charm and probably sound very good.

Just to make the drawing correct, I would get rid of the '-24V' by the grid and put '174V' by the cathode ...

I've a number of friends who have built a very similar design and I can't see any reason why this wouldn't work..

I would recommend trying an "ultrapath" cap between the bottom of the EXO-01 and the cathode resistor of the driver tube, other than that it looks fine.

R3 was shorted when I looked at the schematic before but it seems to have been corrected now.

There is no B+ for U1 - where is the 150v on its plate supposed to come from? And why is the same point in the circuit supposed to be at -24v on the grid of U2? Frankly, with errors like that, there could be other problems. I wouldn't trust the rest of the schematic.
