We was cleaning up my hard drive and guess what I have found? A Zip file containing one of the 300B amplifiers we built >10 years ago. (Our new products won't be in this format, this design and also the parts used are now leagues ahead of what is used 10 years ago.)
This 300B tube amplifier was made in around 2002-2003. It is still working fine as far as I know and is still in good shape/service.
It's a simple design using RC coupled 3 stage topology. 5687-RC-5687-RC-300B. Customer wanted it to be as simple as it can be so that all the components can be used are of audiophile quality. It is tube rectified with 5U4G, having a choke input configuration for better sound and regulation.The chokes and output transformers are from Hammond. 3 chokes are employed for excellent filtering and Left / Right channel separation.
Power transformer are locally with flux band and copper shield on the cores for absolute quietness. Filament for 300B are DC for zero hum as it is used with high efficiency vintage speakers.
