This is a Tarará Tube Audio Amplifier Kit example. Please have in mind that some parts you will receive, may differ from the ones shown in the picture, but keeping the same quality.
AudioVogel presents a new tube amplifier kit for experienced builders. It is a HiFi, class A push-pull power amplifier rated at 10W. It uses EL34 penthode tubes, wired in triode connection. Both channel sections are fully separated and have independent power supplies for better isolation and improved sound stage. It is a zero feedback amplifier, there are also no decoupling capacitors used in the schematic. The power supplies are PCB mounted, but the audio part must be point-to-point soldered using a high quality mono crystal copper wire included in the set. The high quality Luhndal interstage transformer is providing the perfect and most natural phase inverting function, along with DC decoupling between the 2 stages. The kit does not offer an input selector or volume pot, but you may include a high quality resistor attenuator as an option. The amp is designed only as a power stage and should be connected to a pre-amplifier. However, the amplifier sounds beautifully directly connected to a high output tube DAC and a passive attenuator. The kit is not suitable for a first timer but rather for experienced audio builders. The builder must have the required knowledge in working in high voltage environment. The kit is designed for people experienced in electronics or having a degree in electrical engineering. Please have in mind that doing any soldering or tuning activities while the amplifier is powered up is very dangerous and one could suffer an electric shock. The kit is also available as ready-made for an additional price and as such the buyer receives two - year guarantee.
The frequency response and other characteristics are being measured and soon will be available on this page.
