Mini-Torii mods
11/16/09 at 19:15:14
 
Roll Eyes i loved my stock mini-torii , now i'm crazy about it with some few minor tweaks. Shocked

First  i replaced the volume pot with two mono Goldpoint ones.

second replace the two IC caps in the signal with one 0,1 silver/oil mundorf  and a 0,022uF  
teflon nos cap ..

the result : transpararency, sweetness , musical bliss.
next step : i'm waiting for GE 6L6 coke bottle and Telefunken 801s  
thanks steeve for this little jewel  ::)

Hi Jaunitox,

I'm glad you're enjoying it !  Let us know what you hear when you start tube rolling.  Your speakers will certainly let you hear it!

6L6 G 1950  in the house.  damned you were right , it sounds really different than with the stock russian 6N6  .  the bass is a little rounder, but the medium and up sounds like a normal SE 300B.   very nice with Horn  ;)   i let it burn 2 or 3 days..

steve on your mini torii notes you wright this Quote:
This amplifier has 3 stages and 2 coupling caps and is blessed with being able to use very small cap values, ie., a 0.1uf and a 0.0022uf


are you sure about that , it seems that the IC caps was 0.022uf in my amp?! Shocked

Vcap in place of the 0.022uF works very good Wink  
not impressed by the telefunken ECC801S  sound , i wait a pair of mullard 5189 to compare with.

steeve , is the 2,7k resistor after the volume pot is really important?  or can i leave it ? Huh

It's a good insurance policy against RF but the amp would still function without it.

I didn't know they made a 0.022 uf VCAP, which type did you get?

it's the  0.022uF Vcap Teflon,  but it's expensive , i have tried a russian teflon FT1 before and it is just behind the Vcap but not so far for 4$.   silver/mica was a little muded as russian paper in oil.    for the 0,1uf cap , a mundorf silver/oil just fit un the place between the reg and the 12at7 very nice upgrade too Wink

last night , the boss of my local shop in MONACO whas very impressed by the decware / Avant-garde combo and was dissapointed when i say you only sell in direct with a furious cheap price   Grin Grin
