    Eddie Current Studio Junior Interest Thread

    This proposed designs have been all over the place, from a diff-input 2A3 amp, to a 6080 using a new transformer design (in progress), to a transformer output 6C33C directly coupled from the driver. It's now come back to the original idea, something that can actually be delivered in a timely way: A transformer output 2A3 amp capacitor coupled from the driver. Expect the high-frequency filament heaters too. The same type of output transformers (as found on the Studio) with the tertiary winding will be used. No decision on the interstage cap, we have some ideas, but I do expect the final sound to be warmer than the Studio, but still very much Eddie Current. The base build will be a headamp, but speaker outputs will be a custom option. The WE396A is being considered as the driver tube. Target price is $3K. The BA chassis is strongly being considered. There will be no input transformers to split balanced inputs. You will need to provide these yourselves. Finally, everything is subject to change.

    I know some of you have contacted Judi / Craig already. If you are interested, please let me know in this thread. Craig plans to make a metal order in a week. BTW, I plan on getting one myself.

    I am interested depending on how much more the speaker outs cost. I would use this as my main power amp and headphone amp. Would it also put out 6 watts into 8 ohms like the full size Studio?

    We are cutting the metal to have holes pre-cut on the back for speaker binding posts. I doubt costs will be that much more for this option. We trying to contain costs and make this as affordable as possible.

    Interested, and emailed Judi a pre-order form a few days ago. The speaker output is a must for me to justify the $$$.

    Thanks EC team.

    Wild guess? April? Nothing standing in the way like BW or Studio. All parts are readily available.

    You should be set. Just wanted to get a general idea of interest so we can plan production runs accordingly. If anyone is serious, fill in the preorder form on the website and send it to Judi! No deposits at this time.

    Really interested in this! Do you guys have payment plan options or do I need full amount up front? If payment options are available I would sign up 100%. Speaker outputs are also a great bonus!

    I filled the pre-order form in late November, and am interested in the speaker outs.

    Same question here, what tubes and outputs/inputs this amp is going to use.

    With all the hopes for speaker outs, I wonder what the output power could possibly be? Are you all planning on running the baby KEFs?
