Curse you guys! Just when i thought i was nearly at the end game, I hear Pixelplay's incarnation of this damn amp -- not even tuned -- and can't stop thinking about it.

Is there a thread about the killerdac?

More than one, in fact. It's the first group of threads at the top of the home page!

Graham (gamve) told me he has scored a mint Ampex ATR 102. He said he got it cheap. Here is a picture.

Yes I know guys. Here is where the tape envy really starts  ;D

Some pictures of the amplifiers being made. The wood is Australian Cedar. Second amp has a copper top. The 5692 RCAs are replaced with ECC32 Mullard.

This circuit is for my 50 Amplifier. You guys can thank Pixelplay for drawing this. Zenelectro is also responsible for some of the circuit, it''s the best soundíng amp i have heard, Magical indeed, but it is more than just the circuit, it's the wire, choice of parts, and then years of tuning. I do not run 400V into the rectifier, mine is around 300v at the Valve. I dont push the UX250 valves to run hard. Mine has about 2 to 2/5 watts, but with 450 volts you can get 4.6 watts. If you plush them they will not last as long, and can sound stressed, The circuit picture was not right, i will resubmit the correct revised picture soon

They are certainly around but not cheap by any stretch. What did he pay for this?
BTW, that's ATR 102

My friend picked up this fully rebuilt 1/2 inch Ampex MTR 102 last week. Its a great sounding machine, very neutral. It was originally going to be mine, but how many machines do i need.
