My first amplifier!


My first amplifier, which I finished in 2004. The first time. It was rebuilt inside and with a new power transformer for a dramatic improvement. It is about to be rebuilt a final time, using the same circuit on a newly layed-out and painted chassis.


Here’s the schematic of this amplifier as it exists today. It’s using 7C5 (a loktal-based 6V6), 7F7 (a loktal-based 6SL7), and output transformers salvaged from a Scott 222 integrated amplifier found at a junkyard. The Scott had been ON FIRE! But the parts I needed were good…

  1. Are you still out there? If you are can you give guidance on value for choke in power supply and impedance of output transformer.

    • The choke is a 1.5h Dynaco clone such as used in Stereo 70. Anything close to that really. Push-pull output transformers could be anywhere from 5k to 8k plate to plate, 10 watts or higher, to speaker impedance.
