Amp6 Basic Portable Enclosure

Woody had enclosed his Amp6 Basic that I soldered for him into a plastic case. After having wood case envy, he asked me if I could make a case for his Amp6 out of wood, that was a bit smaller than mine. So I did. See the pictures for my results. The wood is Anigre and an unidentifed species of wood that I salvaged off a pallet from work. 2 coats of high gloss Tung Oil is the finish.

Millet Hybrid Headphone Amplifier Project

The Bushwood Amplifier. A state of the art high quality hybrid tube amplifier based on the Millet Hybrid design. The design was taken from DIYForums.org. They are really great guys to work with, and you get a lot of support while building the amplifier.

I sold it because I wanted to get more into woodworking than into DIY audio.

Specifications include:

  • Two 12AE6A RCA vacuum tubes (matched) from Tube Depot
  • Tangent Easy Power Supply with 12.5VA (each side) toroidal transformer by Amveco, Nichicon capacitors, and other stock items as listed on Tangent’s site. I built in a 3 prong grounded plug (included) and a rocker power switch with LED indicator light.
  • Nichicon Muse capacitors throughout the amplifier
  • WIMA MKP10 capacitors where necessary.
  • PCBs mounted on PC board standoffs, with padding underneath to compensate for any flexing
  • Integrated ALPS RK097 rotary volume knob, wired for just a power switch for the amp.
  • ALPS Blue Velvet for volume control.
  • 1/4 inch Neutrik headphone jack
  • Dayton audio gold plated RCA jacks for audio in
  • LED indicator light for amp portion
  • Casework custom built by myself, made from African Sapele, maple, and walnut, with a danish oil/wax finish. Lid not attached for easy removal and access to all inside components.
