50L6 HiFi

I love music so much that some years ago I started learning electronics, going on to work at CoffmanLabs building amazing valve-state HiFi systems. I bought some spare parts that weren’t going to be used and started making my own hot-rodded versions, functional objets d’art. Electrically this is basically a stripped down Prautes 50L6 headphone amp, where I made a few internal design changes and this chassis… the pattern is done in pure gold (as in “actual” gold), based on a photo I took of a ceiling in the Alcazar in Sevilla, Spain. The controls are on the back so it’s possible to see more art, and the front panel is a sacred mandala designed by a 16th century Italian philosopher. The amp also lights up :D but I haven’t yet sourced the lights I want to use. Although nominally only a ~1.5W headphone amp, I use it to drive 99dB efficient speakers quite capably…. I have the parts to build a total of five, inquiries welcome! (I’ll also soon have a matching design for the CoffmanLabs G1A/B) — Contact
