Hello chaps,

Myself and a friend are going to have a crack at this kit, with just a couple of minute changes... Thinking of replacing the tube rectifier for SS, and because I have a couple of NOS 6DJ8 available was thinking of using that in place of the 6N1P. I also will be using NOS KT88 from GEC. So am expecting big things from this amp. The only other difference is the kit will be built inside an enclosure and not on a chassis as provided with the kit. Any suggestions you may have please let me know thanks. (Looking forward to class A triode sound)

I'm glad that you would like to build the kit, but if you make the changes you indicate, it will not be the amp described. It will not have the same performance. While the 6DJ8 will "work", this circuit does not bias it optimally.

I listened to Dave's amp yesterday for about 6+ hours and it was, as he noted, dead quiet! We turned it all the way up (with no input signal) and I couldn't hear anything with my ear practically glued to the speaker.

As it's Dave's project, I won't say anything further, other than I was very impressed.


Best Regards,
TerryO

I am amazed.

Originally I thought I should spend a few weeks listening to this amp before making an assessment on it, but I think itís appropriate to comment now.

From the first few minutes of listening, my immediate impression was how clean, smooth, and dead quiet this amp plays. That assessment holds now after a few full days of operation, and Iím sure for quite some time to come.

Iíve listened to a variety of different types of music, and the sound is absolutely amazing. I have a bookshelf pair of speakers that Iím very familiar with, using my SS amp to drive them. On this tube amp, the difference is stunningly more detailed and smooth. The imaging is improved as well.

Iíve been building speakers for over 15 years, and about two or three years ago I became serious about building a tube amp for myself. Through my homework and research, I ran across this SE KT88 kit offering. This is definitely one time I was in the right place at the right time.

This kit is very good for anyone looking for that wonderful SE tube sound Ė the manual has excellent details, the parts are good quality and kitted together nicely, and the performance is very good. Even for a first-timer like me, I found everything to be straightforward.

If anyone is looking for a good solid SET amp, without hesitation Iíd recommend this one. It simply puts a smile on my face.

Thanks, scitizen17 for all of your hard work to make this available.

I am reading all the related information I can find to this design. Is there any other relevan thread, apart from this one and the one I post below, that contains information regarding this design? Maybe this particular design has a more specific name than "KT88 SE amp"?

Thanks!
