AudioPicture galleries of my audio hobby. Pictures of my JELabs 300b amplifiers, 6AQ5 SE amplifier, 6B4G PP amplifier on my work bench, my Fisher collection, Altec Valenica speakers, Otari R2R and various other odd peices of gear.
Hope you enjoy.
Umm.. Still under construction :)
JELabs300B AmplifierThis was my first attempt at scratch building an amplifier. I choose the JELabs circuit mostly because of Derek Waltons excelent build instructions at his site: Walton Audio

6AQ5 SE AmplifierThis is my 6AQ5 SE amplifier that I built using parts from an early Sixties Sony R2R player. Cool sounding and am using it at work for a PC amp.

Harmon Kardon Citation GearThese are my Harmon Kardon Citation I & II that I recently purchased from a buddy of mine. Have the McShane kits for the amp and will be doing the same thing for the preamp over the summer.

FisherThis area is for various Fisher schematics and service manuals that I acquired from across the web. I own the following Fisher gear: X100B intragrated amp, FM200 tuner, two 400 receivers, one 500b receiver, one 500c receiver. All, except the 500c are actively used and rebuilt. The 500c is on a shelf waiting for that moment when I decide to do something with it.

Reel 2 ReelHere are a couple of R2R's that I either own or have owned. The Otari (now gone) and the Pioneer. While I really liked the Otari, because of its physical size, the unit was regulated into storage. Now the Pioneer, while more of a consumer R2R, is in my audio rack and used considerable more often than the Otari.

The Pioneer did need some TLC. I blew out what looked like a 1/2 inch of dust from the insides. Both the rubber wheels were stuck and needed to be worked loose with oil and cleaning. The auto shutoff needed working loose. The heads needed cleaning. The entire face plate needed a good cleaning and so on.. R2R plays fine and sounds nice through my tube amp. :)
MiscJust a place for the odd stuff.
