What do you want to do with it? Leave it as is or build something with the tubes and PS?

There has been some discusions on the el84 SE designs (http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...threadid=47048

that might help.

I recently stripped a similar chassis and built a el84 from a design found in the above thread.

well it finally came in. looked it over everying looks good but the output tubes are not the same make. one runs a little red

and no fuze on the iron


sounds good but i think it would make a good headphone amp.
i just wanted to post a pic before and after

later

You need to readjust bias on the output tubes.

this is somewhat the idea i have for rebuilding it. i have some left over aluminum stock left over from the chipamps i was working on.
wood on the front and back with one inch wood overhang on the sides and rounded off. its not the right iron but it gives me a idea
of the space needed for the right one.

i allso replaced the caps and was really suprized on how nice it sound. single ended sounds great.
