It was always my intention to build two 6T9 vacuum tube amplifiers. For the first one I used a baking pan for the chassis and I was interested to hear just how good these simple single-ended (SE) tube amps could be with just basic components. From the first hour of play I was very impressed with just how musical they are when matched with the right speakers. My second build of this amplifier incorporated a lot of the original parts but this time more attention was paid to the construction and small upgrades to capacitors and the power supply. I also found that the sound could be further improved by converting the kit to operate from Pentode mode to Ultra-Linear (UL) mode. Both amplifiers are Class A.
