Stereo Tube Power Amplifier Schematic


Stereo Tube Power Amplifier Schematic circuit diagram

This is the circuit diagram of stereo tube power amplifier. It applies 3 types of tube that are 2 6SF5 GT high-mu triodes, 1 5Y3 GT vacuum rectifier, and 2 6K6 power beam amplifiers. The Audio input can be from any two-channel line level device such as a television, CD player, or VCR. It is of the tube type, using only 5 tubes total with no more than about 45 Watts power consumption from the outlet.

Stereo Tube Power Amplifier Circuit Notes:
  1. C8 is for radio interference suppression and may be omitted.
  2. The 6V6 GT tube may be substituted for the 6K6 to lower power requirements.
  3. The 5Y3 GT tube should be mounted in a vertical position and be well ventilated. The 6K6 and 6SF5 tubes can be mounted in any position.
  4. The power supply portion of this unit may be used for anything requiring 290-320v DC up to about 3 amperes.
  5. Controls should have an audio taper.
