Here is one of my amps.
What is that? Looks like a 211 output tube?
I have a few SET amps that I cycle between. Right now I'm really loving my Almarro A318B (hotrodded) amp driving Klipsch Heresy IIIs in my upstairs system:
That's a sweet amp...🍿🍿🍿
Thanks man! Here's the really crazy thing about the amp. You see there's 3 transformers on the top of it, and you think, "wow those are really big output transformers on the side, but that power transformer in the middle looks a bit wimpy". But, that middle transformer is NOT the power transformer, it's the CHOKE!!!! No, if you open it up, you can see the actual power transformer is this HUGE industrial scale transformer that takes up 50% of the space inside the amp:Yeah, it's CRAZY!! I'd say 70% of the entire amp is basically just giant transformers, haha.And of course I couldn't leave it "as is", as I like to tinker. So things I've done to improve it:1. Bypass the volume pot2. Bypass the input selector switch3. Replace all internal wiring with UP-OCC wire from VH Audio4. Jupiter Copper coupling caps5. Teflon Film output caps6. Miflex Copper foil bypass cap on the power supply7. ETI UP-OCC input RCA jacks8. Pure Copper, low mass Furutech binding posts9. Tung Sol 6SL7 and 6SN7 tubes from the 1950'sIt started out as an excellent sounding amp, and with all the changes (each one was small, but they were cumulative), I'd say it's one of the very best amps I've ever heard. 18 watts of pure SET bliss.
http://All of these units look beautiful any recommendation for Low powered units to drive 97.5 Daedalus Poseidon- speakers they need 3 watts plus as per species. .So I have looked at Deware 84Ckcs but they are only 2 watts others on my list are Allnic 1500 MK 2 , Allnic M300 Airgtight 300R (very expensive) Asghar
Brand spanking new 300B added to the group of amps. Just delivered today, setting up and burning in tonight.
