Elekit TU-8600E 300B Power Amplifier / Headphone Amplifier Kit

  • 1,23000



Description

>>> Please note that tubes are not included in this kit <<<

The TU-8600E is a 300B single ended audio power amplifier kit.

This is a special edition for the diyAudio store that includes 2% REX50G Takman resistors.

    Features

    Power circuit enhancement

    • High efficiency, low magnetic flux leakage R-core transformer
    • Schottky barrier diodes for shorter recovery time
    • Individual windings for the filament heater (A power), high voltage (B power), and bias to stabilize the negative feedback circuitry (C power)
    • All power stabilized to reduce residual noise as much as possible, resulting in a noise level as low as 1/10th of the TU-8300R

    Stable NFB circuit for high quality audio

    • Improvement to various parts and circuits including OPT to make the most of 300B tubes
    • NFB applied to cathode of 300B by the third winding of the OPT as well as to the voltage amplifying stage
    • NFB is minimized as well as transient response

    New active automatic bias adjustment

    • Bias power is supplied separately
    • New "Active automatic bias" used where the amp detects plate current and automatically adjusts the grid voltage, rendering the TU-8600 both self-biasing as well as having fixed bias.
    • Current detecting circuit moved from cathode side to the B power side for better sound quality

    Full power use of 300B tubes

    • Orthodox voltage amplification stage to make the most of the 300B's outstanding sonic characteristics
    • 12AU7 (ECC82) used in parallel for 2nd stage to drive the 300B tubes to full power resulting in 200Vp-p without clipping

    Tube friendly design

    • Warm up times for directly heated and indirectly heated tubes differ. Most designs warm up both at the same rate.
    • The TU-8600 heats up the directly heated 300B tubes after the indirectly heated 12AU7 / 12AX7 indirectly heated tubes have warmed up. 
    • This is a very tube friendly design that will not overload tubes that have not warmed up fully 

    Output level section for headphones

    • There are jumpers on the board to allow for headphone impedance matching

      DIY friendly design

      • The TU-8600 comes with high quality polymer hybrid electrolytic caps and polypropylene film caps, however extra space has been designed into the PCB for audiophiles to add (larger) after market caps

      Safety

      • The TU-8600 operates at very high voltages, and includes a safety cover
