Magnavox EL84 Stereo Amplifier Hi, Jimmy O here,
I just finished designing this classic, powerful,
single ended Magnavox, and this beauty really packs quite a punch!
Truly one of the finest sounding amplifiers in any 5 watt category!If you follow my listings, you know I am continually inspired to rebuild and design these classic vintage amps and hi-fidelity record players, by watching one of my favorite 1950's short films on design, entitled:American LookIt's a great film, and I hope you take a look at it, you may get inspired yourself!
I wanted to do something new and fun
with this particular amplifier;
so along with the completely detailed and modified circuit,
i thought i would also give it a sleeker,
more detailed and cooler looking chassis...I decided to first go with aircraft grade aluminum for the chassis which was painted in a fun 1950's two tone,
of Vintage blue and Heirloom White...
Of course I used all new tube sockets, gold plated RCA inputs, gold plated Speaker binding posts, AC cord, Fuse Holder, terminal strips,
NOS Western Electric Heater wiring, silver plated black and white Teflon hook up wire and coax wire, a convenient on/off switch, a blue LED indicator light,
All German Made F&T electrolytic capacitors, carbon film resistors, Mullard Magnavox 6EU7, JJ EL84's, and a Traveler 6CA4 rectifier.This amp sounds simply fantastic!!
You can really get some serious volume without any distortion.
I have built quite a few of these, and I am continually impressed with how beautiful music sounds through this amp once it's been modified, with all new components... it's warm full powerful tube sound is really amazing...Thanks for stopping by to take a look;
Even if your not in the market for a high end amplifier,
take a look at the short film above...
I think we could all use to go back to the days
when design was fun and whimsical!
This custom amp will be amazingly well packed
