What’s funny is that I had an Alan Eaton 45 amp. Sold it a few months ago, and to put it simply - I miss it. I emailed Alan and tried to buy the red one. You bought it just before I emailed him back to say I’ll take it. Well done.  I plan to have him make me the same one. His amps for the price sound special - as does the 45 tube.


great amp for omega's  :D

So, I’m having Alan build me another 45 amp. This time I will never sell it (most likely never sell it). I’m thinking I’ll sell my Tekton Lores and purchase the Tekton Perfect SET speakers. I’m thinking / hoping it’d be an upgrade in sound and maybe the impedance is a bit easier as well. I’d like a little more volume but not sure if I’d actually get more with the switch. The Lores say they’re 98 db but they’re really about 95...

In additional I’m going to have Pine Tree build me a switch (no volume) for my DAC and Phono.  Seems like great work they do.

Finally I’m still debating on the best tubes. I LOVED the globes I bought from Brent Jessee. But I’m curious to hear the EML 45’s.  They’re just not cheap. I’ve also considered getting the EML 45b and having Alan’s amp modded to bring up the watts with the 45b - which would solve the 96b issue with 1.5 watts becoming about 3.5. Just not sure how it’d play with the changes.

Decisions decisions. 


I just bought one of these 2nd hand and should receive it by EOW.

I've not found much to read regarding tube rolling on the AE amps.

Do owners of the amp here have fave tube combos?

The one I got has Tung-Sol 45s, Sylvania 6SN7GTB and National Union 6AX5.

I already ordered a RCA 6AX5GT.

In my other amps, I prefer RCA.  So, am thinking about getting some RCA Radiotron 45s.
