I'm sure most of you reading this ad are familiar with Don's work... These amplifiers represent that statement in spades.
Premium parts were used throughout the build starting with the black powered coated steel chassis (with bottom plate and feet), OEM Sprague coupling capacitors, Hammond chokes, heavy duty power switches, 5 way binding posts, JJ Electronics power caps and top shelf OS Pioneer Hi-Fi output transformers. Each amplifier measures 17 inches wide x 10 inches deep x 5.5 inches tall weighing 12 pounds. As you can see in the pictures, the amplifiers are point-to-point wired with a very simple circuit without many parts in the signal path. Output power is 12-15 watts per channel so efficient loudspeakers are recommended for optimum performance. With that said, these amplifiers sound sensational and boast a very holographic presentation.
No onboard volume controls are present so an active or passive preamplifier is required for volume adjustment. The tube line-up included in the sale are: (2) NOS Sylvania 6BY5 rectifier tubes, (4) matched Valve Art EL84 output tubes and (2) Golden Dragon 12AU7 driver tubes. No power cables are included in the sale as most audio hobbyists have their own favorites. Don's amplifiers rarely come up for sale on the used market making this pair quite a rarity.
