Tell us a bit more about it.
Transformer balanced input and output (designed for the specific transformers, no options)
pure classA running on +/- 30V

Schematic without component values.

We will limit this project to 60 / 30 PCBs (= 30 Stereo Sets)
PCBs will be ordered next week.

Darius made some listening tests, description in german only:

Rg1 / Rg2 control the gain? What is the max gain?
FYI for others: there are some nice pictures on page 5 of the German forum.

correct. the value table Darius calculated did either go from 20 to 64 dB, or 25 to 69 dB.
this was done for Pikatron a output transformers, we now decided to go for a Haufe which needs some adjustment. I'm sure Darius is already calculating  8)

I see two MAT02s in the pictures... cool. Makes me think this might be like a 990 with class A throughout.  :)
Have you compared the Haufe to a Jensen 16b?

no. and to make support etc easier transformers are fixed (input = E-1420, output = RK494), no options.

Preliminary documents (values may change):

K13117 Schematic
K13117 PCB


N13117 Schematic
N13117 PCB

One unit is on the road for listening tests to finalize some component values  8)
