Amp Camp Kit

So glad I tackled this kit! The last kit I built was over a decade ago when my fingers were more nimble, and my EYES were so much better. But, with the help of a magnifier on a stand, and lots of light, this kit went together in a couple of evenings after work. A fun project, AND I have a beautiful sounding amp! Looking forward to breaking out my pre-amp, bookshelf speakers, and turntable!

lovely experience

It was my first try as a DIY amp builder and it was a thrill. The set up you guys ( diyaudio ) have put up here is just perfect. From the available literature, the forum and members inputs, the anticipation, the neat package, even the little plastic bags where the parts were shipped in; quality stuff. And what to say about the build guide put up by 6L6, that made assembling this kit a breeze.
I really enjoyed it.
The kit resulted in a quality amplifier ( I have bought two ) with a sound to match.
They are still under "trial" because, I must admit, my system is not easy for them. They are kind of struggling to power up my 4 Ohm SMGA maggies... my TL12 tube LEAKs were more at ease.
For reference I am using a Benchmark DAC1 HDR as pre amp, and the ACA with a parallel input and a Y cable.
As I said I really enjoyed the whole process and seriously considering building another. Maybe the Aleph J!
Thank you guys very much
Cheers

Better than it deserves to be.

I am a single ended triode fan. I have a DIY pair of speakers consisting of an Altec 515b, Altec 755a and RAAL dipole ribbon tweeter. I tri-amp the speakers using three 45 SET amps, one of which I built myself. One of them is a Korneff if you know who that is. They all sound very much alike because they are all based on the same circuit. I bought the ACA out of curiosity, wondering what a single ended transistor amp sounded like. The short answer is very much like a SET, it must be the single ended Class-A part of amplification I like, not necessarily the fact that they are tubed.

The Korneff is considered one of the best 45 based amplifiers. The 45 tube is very special compared to other SET tubes, even the venerable 300b. It is also very low powered at 2 watts. I was having problems with my 755a midranges, thinking perhaps my 61 year old drivers were finally shot, I was hearing significant amounts of distortion. I thought the coils were rubbing. I called Great Plains Audio, a specialist in Altec speakers, and the tech told me how to test for rubbing. I used this amp for the test, and I found out my speakers were fine. I discovered the problem was that the 755a is a 4 ohm speaker. None of my amps have a 4 ohm tap, and the amp was freaking out at the low impedance. My solution was to put the ACA in the system along side the 45 SETs. It blends in beautifully, and my distortion problem is gone. My opinion of this amp is; if you can deal with the low power, it is one of the best amps you can buy (build), and for the money it is incredible.

This was not my first project, but I am no DIY expert. This was easy to build and the finished product looks like a production amp.

great sounding little amps

I built mono blocks & wasn't sure what to expect sound wise. they run pretty hot (class a), but every day the sound improves. I have been listening for 2 weeks now & will show them off tomorrow to another audiophile. they will never replace my big amps, but I am enjoying listening to them & even my wife is surprised how good they sound. I enjoyed building the kit & look forward to doing another diy project

Beautiful and pleasant sound

Used with Monitor Audio Bronze 2 and driven by NwAVguy's O2/ODAC, this setup fills my newly, acoustically-improved kitchen/utility room with quality sound that my old ears haven't heard for ages. Only downside is that now I can hear how badly most studio recordings are made. Good quality live recordings sounds incredible, and so do voices and percussion from good studio recordings. Sometimes I'm lead to believe that the artists are sitting in a corner of the room, or in the next room. I'm almost back to the times of my loved Micro Seiki/SME/Ortofon/improved NAD/Tannoy 15" setup.
