71A Direct Heat Triode Single End Class A Amplifier
71A is a vintage direct heat triode power tube for audio amplifier. 71A is firstly made by Cunningham as CX-371A in USA in 1930s. Although 71A is a low plate voltage (180V max.) and low ouput power (0.8W in SE class A) triode, it can drive loudspeakers in high sensitivity. Nowadays, more and more audiophiles like the sound of vintage 71A.

We started to make our first 71A amplifier.
