    Default Transcendent Sound Pinnacle 300b OTL Monoblock Amplifiers

    Had this kit for quite a while, just not had the time up to now to get this done. Have finally made a start though.

    I'm building these with a few mods, first of which are some very high quality regulated filament supplies- one for each 300b so eight in total, four in each monoblock. These are not part of the standard kit so I need to find room for them.

    I've heard a similarly modified pair at a previous Owston which was easily the best amp I've heard so far, so if this kit gets anywhere near that I'll be a happy chappie.

    First job is the filament supplies, got all the components laid out-



    Getting there-



    All done-



    Made a start on populating the chassis with tag strips etc-



    That's as far as I've got for now, will update the thread as I progress.
