This post is a logical continuation of the post: My “radar of sensations” about the “good honk”:
I wonder if any manufactures would be interested to undertake bass DSET project.
It might be an even a business opportunity for somebody. Just try to imagine. You are a manufacturer who builds one single moonoblocks with let say 2 stages bass DSET with GU-48 in the end. The GU-48 runs at 2500V and GU-48 will yield 35 times amplification – it is a LOT of gain for out triode. It is direct heated 10A filament, so let to heat it with 10-20mHz AC. The amps is furnished with DSET output transformer that with no section and with huge inductance, let say the transformer has 5-200Hz response. It I will be large but manageable moonoblock.
After you build it you deeply the amp to people – little give it up to somebody, let it to sit there for a week or two and then send it to next person. Literally: create web site, where people will be able to sight in for amp receiving and testing in home conditions.
I feel that it might be a divert array of people who would like to hear what good DSET can do with bass instead SS amp. Wail until this type of DSET hit the market of those expensive box-speakers users what bi-amp with Levinson, Lamms, Krells and Classes… People generally do not have knowledge about good bass DSETs with limitless power in A1. You can easy pump 7W to GU-48’s grid and get out ot of it near 200W, with good driver buffer you can drive it to A2 if you wish…
The advantage of this bass DSET venture is that there is no competition for this. No one does it and for many people it would be novelty. Whatever full range set out there they all roll of at 20Hz at full power, regardless what they claim, and in really the distort like crazy at bottom end. A powerful LF DSET might be very interesting education tool for many audio people and it might be a lucrative no competition enterprise with somebody. Think about it.
If I had an interest in audio business then I would do something like thins myself – built a few demo amps – send them out to circle the listening and rooms and just pick up the orders…. If somebody would interest to do something like this then get in touch with me and I will help you to source GU-48 at much more attractive price.The Cat
