GerusAudio 300B (08/15/2018)

Specifications

The Perfect amplifier for your 300B's

This amplifier uses a 6SH7's in Triode mode  for the input/driver. The 6SH7 is a low cost, high current valve that provides the right input sensitivity to drive the 300B, and using this valve only requires on coupling capacitor. The amp  is dead silent thanks to the low ripple B+ and DC heaters for the 6SH7’s  and 300B’s. There is no hum!

I have two amplifiers under construction right now

These will be 8 watt amplifiers built to the specs shown above.

Please contact me if you want something different.

Before I list the amplifiers for sale, I listen to the each one for 10-20 hours, re-check the voltages, power output and frequency response.

The Power Transformer

The main power transformer is rated at 600mA. The amplifier draws about 250mA. So no need to worry about this bad boy being over loaded!

The input/driver power supply

This is board supplies the DC voltage for the input/driver. Zener diodes are used for the "G2" voltage.

The "Ultra Path" Capacitors

The 300B's use the "Ultra Path" configuration.
