What amp is that?
It’s an all DHT amp. 10y/26 tubes for the input driving either type 50 or 300B.
Congrats! Is it an Oliver Sayes? I hear the 866 rectification is a diff beast. Is it interstage transformer coupled?
Yup, had Oliver build it. And yes, permalloy ITs instead of caps.
it is beautiful..I hope it sounds the same. Congrats!
Oh, beauties...mercury recifiers??? Please share power specs!
Please post more pics and impressions!
@CEE TEE: I'd have to look under the hood for the exact numbers on choke inductance and PT specs but it's definitely overbuilt. In a nutshell, the PSU uses 816 MV rectifiers bridged with 6ax4 dampers. Filter caps are all film instead of electrolytic. Separate filament regulation for both drivers and power tubes ect.
@rhythmdevils: Would be glad to. Things will be a bit hectic for the next few weeks (new job ect.) but hopefully I'll be able to form some impressions by the end of next month.
No deadline or stress I’d just love to know how it sounds especially with ottos.
