The Engineer's Amplifier

The "Engineer's Amplifier" - a distortion cancelling push-pull amp using cheap TV tubes (!)

image Pete Millet has just popped this tube amplifier onto his web pages.  Pete was aiming to produce a tube amplifier that sounded good but used less exotic components than his previous 300B based amp.  Using 6CB6 tubes and even some IC’s in his design, it would appear that he has gone for a pragmatic approach to this design (Much like an Engineer might?).

Slightly un-usually for a Tube amp, Pete has opted to create this design on a PCB.  Most of the other DIY tube designs I have seen use point to point wiring.  Pete is even offering a few spare boards for sale.  Ideal for a beginner to tube amplifier building I would think.
