|There they are! Fairchild FQPF8N60C|
|Board top with ceramic tube sockets|
|Board bottom with resistors populated|
I initially build this amp with Russian paper in oil caps:
|AmpOhm aluminum foil paper in oil capacitors|
|Orangey Red LCDs|
|Cardas copper binding posts and Vampire RCAs|
The illuminated logo was achieved by using a piece of perforated powdercoated metal as the base, then fastening the "Millett" brass logo I designed on the front. Lighting the logo from behind is a small circuit featuring 16 diffused orange LEDs that runs at 6.3V off the heater. The nice top plate with cool little perforations around the MOSFETs was made by Bob Collins (DIYAudio member PPP6l6gc) for a very reasonable price.
Some other fun little upgrades from the stock build were:
- Cardas Copper Binding Posts
- Vampire RCAs
- Kimber and Oyaide Wiring
- AmpOhm Paper in Oil Aluminum Capacitors
