    st-35 triode output

    Post by altecboy on Mon Sep 23, 2013 4:44 am

    I built a clone st35 using Dynakitparts boards. I'd like to run it in triode. In the St35 the ultralinear connection has a feedback connection. Other than removing the UL connection at the output tube screens, and using a 100 ohm resistor between the screens and the plates, what more need be done?

    thanks.

    What you mentioned above is all that needs to be done .. Just remember to insulate the end of the ultralinear wire. That wire is carrying about 380 volts ..

    Power will be reduced to about 9 or 10 watts per channel on the ST-35 if you run it in triode ...

    Thank you Bob. There is this feed back capacitor associated with the screens. I think it should be removed as well. Do you agree?

    You could probably try it both ways ... Leaving it in and removing it and see if it has any affect on the sound ..

    I think that 18 pF (C6) cap is in there to assure that the circuit is stable - BUT - I have a feeling that if it is removed, the circuit will still be stable ..
