(the db's - Amplifier)

But — and this is a very important "BUT" —
music
is more important than high-end audio or tubes.

John Broskie - www.tubecad.com

And - don't let fool 'ya - beside "Class D" there has been nothing new in audio circuitry
for the last 25 years. THX to guys like J.B., who present the "old shit" in new, clever
and sophisticated ways. Highly appreciated !

I'm a great fan of the KISS Principle; but like Einstein said "Keep it small and simple - but not simpler".
The great advantage of tube audio circuits is their straight forward "simple" design compared to most sand circuits.
 Nevertheless it costs some gray cells to make the design simple AND good sounding. That's what Einstein meant :-)
 
 Following up are some of the audio projects I build so far. I'm not the guy to invent the wheel twice.
So most of my stuff are projects I found on the web, often altered slightly.
I'm convinced of these projects and will always reference the original web sites,
articles, schematics etc.  I don't want to adorn me with borrowed plumes.
Also - as you soon will notice I have a limited budget to practice this hobby.
So I'm using "run-of-the-mill" components wherever I can and I prefer cheaper solutions,
wherever I don't know exactly if I will notice a difference that's worth the "burned" money.
Voodoo components are only used where I  assume that it makes any sense i.e. in phono preamps.
The aim behind the presentation of my stuff is to show YOU that there are outstanding
TUBE DIY Projects on the web and to encourage YOU to search and built them.

 Furthermore this is a MUzIC site. I'm not really interested in Hifi or HighEnd.

I'm interested in MUzIC; period.

ok,ok I'm interested in building tube hifi, too ;-)

So before you go out and buy a multi-million-dollar-interconnect-
or loudspeaker cable, or any other esoteric voodoo component

 spend the money on VINYL;
even CD's are better than cable !!!
 
And if you don't know how to play the newly bought VINYL,
check DA'BAY for a used
Micro-Seiki/Thorens/Dual/ELAC/Sansui/Technics/Linn/Revolver/Rega
record player.
Chances are high that they're cheaper than the cable you'd like to buy.
   
This page is in an infinite build process. So, please look at the photos.
If you see a blue (linked) headline, the project is online.
Or look in the newZ to see if something's updated.
